First solo album by C418, creator of Minecraft's music

Chances are you've heard C418's music, even if you've never heard of him: he scored Minecraft. Now the Berlin-based producer and composer, aka Daniel Rosenfeld, has his first solo album on the way. Here's a single from it, titled Beton. [via Variety]

"All the big loud housey songs came from the idea of 'I want to create the same song over and over again'," Rosenfeld said, "Except that I've created each one in a different location, or a different mindset. And just purely based on that, they all turned out unique in their own way."

The album, Excursions, is out in september; you can get the Minecraft soundtrack on vinyl for $45 at Amazon.
