Rounding out our reveals of the exclusive in-game radio station contributors to Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP - is one of the hottest producers in hip-hop today, DJ Khalil. While he's been producing respected underground bangers since 2000 for the likes of Ras Kass, Bishop Lamont, and 50 - Khalil has become one of the go-to producers in the past few years for his signature heavy, head-nodding basslines and dark, serious synths.

He's made major waves in '09 by producing standout tracks for some of this year's biggest rap albums and artists, like Slaughterhouse (the lead single "The One" and the album cut favorite "Cuckoo"), Fabolous ("Imma Do It", "Never Let It Go", and "What It Look Like") and Drake ("Fear").

His radio station mix in Chinatown Wars PSP features new and exclusive beats debuting for the first time, as well as some of his finest recent instrumentals. Check out a first audio preview above.

Part three of our music reveals from the exclusive soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP delivers the genre-leaping instrumental rock sounds of Tortoise.

Often referred to as 'post-rock', this Chicago-based outfit was one of the very first bands to fearlessly incorporate hip-hop, techno, dub and drum'n'bass into modern guitar-based rock'n'roll in the late 1980's, earning them worldwide acclaim. Influential to this day, Tortoise's most recent album is the critically acclaimed Beacons of Ancestorship. Check out the audio player above for a snippet from their station in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP.

Part two of our music reveals from the exclusive soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP brings us a special selection from the label credited with reigniting New York's dance-punk scene, and the guys behind the twice Grammy-nominated band LCD Soundsystem: DFA Records.

Founded in 2001 by James Murphy, Tim Goldsworthy and Jonathan Galkin, DFA have had a constant string of successes, starting with their initial signing of Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack guests The Rapture through to the successes of LCD Soundsystem's two albums and singles including "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House" and "Get Innocuous" (also found on the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto IV).

With a modern twist on the influences of early 80's bands that blended dance music and rock such as Talking Heads, Blondie and New Order, DFA is currently home to such bands as The Juan Maclean, Holy Ghost! and Yacht. Meanwhile, in between LCD Soundsystem shows, James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy are succesful touring DJ's in their own right. Take a listen to a clip from the DFA station in Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars PSP above.

In the first in a series of reveals for the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars on the PSP - we're proud to announce the addition of the biggest Metal outfit never to hit the big time and one of the greatest stories in rock'n'roll: Anvil. A one-time inspiration and influence to bands like Metallica, Motorhead and Slayer, Anvil were on the precipice of Metal superstardom when a series of unfortunate events cast them into relative obscurity.

Thanks to a recent documentary that the London Times called "one of the greatest rock'n'roll movies ever made," Anvil are finally getting the credit they have long deserved. Watch the trailer to the movie at www.anvilthemovie.com, and check back for more reveals from the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP next week.
