Electronauts VR Music App Launches With Chainsmokers, Tiesto and DJ Shadow Tracks

Los Angeles-based virtual reality startup Survious is getting ready to launch Electronauts, a new virtual reality (VR) app that allows users to playfully mix and remix songs in real-time. Electronauts will launch on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR headsets on August 7, and come with remixable tracks from musicians including The Chainsmokers, ODESZA, Steve Aoki, Tiesto and DJ Shadow.

Survios first announced Electronauts late last year, and then demonstrated it at CES in Las Vegas this past January. The app sits somewhere between a game and a music production tool: It allows players jam with the individual elements of a track, and arrange them on the fly. Users can also team up with their online friends to jam together, and the music is accompanied by trippy 3D visuals.

Here’s the complete list of tracks available to remix with Electronauts at launch:

  • The Chainsmokers – Roses (ft. ROZES)

  • ODESZA – Say My Name (ft. Zyra)

  • Steve Aoki & Boehm – Back 2 You (ft. WALK THE MOON)

  • ZHU – Intoxicate

  • Keys N Krates – Dum Dee Dum [Dim Mak Records]

  • Krewella & Yellow Claw – New World (ft. Vava)

  • Krewella – Alibi

  • Amp Live & Del The Funky Homosapien – Get Some of Dis

  • DJ Shadow – Bergshrund (ft. Nils Frahm)

  • 3LAU – Touch (ft. Carly Paige)

  • Machinedrum – Angel Speak (ft. Melo-X), Do It 4 U (ft. Dawn Richard)

Electronauts will be available on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive via Steam, where it will sell for $19.99. PlayStation VR users will have access to it via the PlayStation Store for $17.99.

Survios is also launching Electronauts in VR arcades in 38 countries. The startup has long been a pioneer in the location-based VR  business, primarily distributing titles to independently operated arcade partners, but also operating its own VR arcade in Torrance, Calif.

Survios CEO Seth Gerson recently told Variety that the company plans to open additional owned-and-operated arcades in the coming months as well, and compared these efforts to Google producing its own phones. “We are creating inspirational flagships,” he said.
