The latest contribution to Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto’s long-established deep love and understanding of underground music and music culture across multiple games, iFruit Radio is the 21st radio station to be heard across the sound waves of Los Santos, Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online’s fictional take on Los Angeles, adding to over 510 fully-licensed songs across a variety of genres and styles, and contributing to over 75 billion minutes of music heard by GTA players. iFruit Radio adds to the music legacy of the Grand Theft Auto series, with a diverse array of stations and genres featured in the series starting with the classic stations of Grand Theft Auto III including MSX radio featuring the seminal Drum’n’Bass label Moving Shadow; the Pop, Electro, New Wave and Rock stations of the ’80s-inspired classic Grand Theft Auto: Vice City; the mid-’90s Hip-Hop, House and Alternative Rock of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, the early aughts Hip-Hop, Electro House, Dancehall and Ambient selections of Grand Theft Auto IV, and the underground dance music from DJ’s The Black Madonna, Dixon, Tale of Us and Solomun as featured in GTA Online: After Hours.

Initially released in 2013 as part of the biggest entertainment launch of all time, Grand Theft Auto Online continues to break records for player numbers six years after its initial release. iFruit Radio comes as part of the game’s latest free update, The Diamond Casino Heist, the biggest, most audacious and most complex criminal operation ever to hit GTA Online.
