Justin Blau - known professionally as 3LAU - has hinted at a significant crossover with the gamer community. 

A month ago professional gamer Ninja (real name Tyler Blevins) revealed that he would soon partner with record label Astralwerks on an album titled Ninjawerks. Neither he nor the label revealed any of its tracklist, but Blau has suggested that a song of his might be the first entry to find its way to the public.

Today, Blau tweeted that he will share new music this Friday, November 30th. He mentioned Blevins in the tweet and included the hashtag "#Ninjawerks," suggesting in no uncertain terms that his new track will be featured on the album.

Blevins is widely considered the world's biggest gamer. He boasts the most followed channel on live streaming video game platform Twitch as well as 19 million YouTube subscribers and 11 million Instagram followers. As established as 3LAU and Astralwerks are in the electronic music space, all parties stand to gain quite a bit from the partnership.
