If Rockstar Games wasn’t a video game publisher, then it’d have to be a music producer. Owners Sam and Max Houser have a flawless ear for obscure new classics, platinum-worthy oldies, and new mixes that become an inseparable element of their games.

Grand Theft Auto V is getting a limited edition CD and vinyl box set this December. And by “limited,” there will only be 5,000 units available worldwide.

The set will have 59 tracks with original music from A$AP Rocky, Yeasayer, Flying Lotus, Tyler, The Creator, and more. It also features the sick original score composed by Tangering Dream, Woody Jackson, The Alchemist + Oh No, mixed by DJ Shadow. It’s an indescribable–but supremely listenable–amalgam of synth pop, beach rock, hip hop, and strobe-light dance club rhythms. It’s kind of how I wish the ’80s and early ’90s actually sounded, most days.

The vinyl set will be on six records, so it ain’t gon’ be cheap, regardless of the fact that they’re only making 5,000 of them.
