Get ready to be blown away, because the new documentary series “Diggin In The Carts” is the untold story behind the most influential music to come out of Japan. That’s right video game music.
Some of you might have been heavily influenced by the composers behind these timeless 8-bit melodies. Till now they have remained faceless, but thanks to the Red Bull Music Academy and Nick Dwyer the world can now hear and see some of the stories.
Episode 1: The Rise of Video Game Music is available here and I’m pretty sure you’ll want to tune in weekly after seeing it. Watch how producers like Flying Lotus, Kode9, Havoc (Mobb Deep) and Oh No comment on some of their most precious memories…video games.
