The hyperdub label curate an incredible collection of Japanese video game music from the (insert lowish number)-bit era, when creativity and imagination trumped technical limitation.

We love this comp, music of giddy excitement rubbing up against tones of lo-fi dread, and even tender ballads. Highlights include Soshi Hosoi’s Steve Reich inspired minimalist masterpiece from Mahjong Touhaiden, the dazzling high-tech chip soul of Toshiharu Yamanishi, and the saw tooth heavy darkness of the Konami Kukeiha Club. a genuinely appealing proposition for those inside and outside the gaming world.
