▼Comments from TeddyLoid
Q. Please tell us about your aim and concept behind this original track.
A. “Destiny” is a title I have played a lot. The song is one that brings together the large open area of the video and fits the dance emotes of the game.

Q.  So you like “Destiny.” How did you feel when you received the offer to create a song for it?
A. For me, a hardcore gamer when it comes to “Destiny,” getting to create this song truly felt like a “destiny.” It must have been fate.

Q. What kind of game do you think “Destiny 2” is?
A. Your own energy is necessary to the music and the world. Let’s meet somewhere out there in the game’s new social space “The Farm.”

If you haven’t already checked out the super high quality dance video, be sure to watch it above. It looks like it was made on the set of an expensive movie.
