yo these are extremely cool. definitely going to dig into these tomorrow. i had no idea ryuichi sakamoto did the dreamcast ident!


#4


Probably my fave hip hop/game OST mashup thing ever. Not strictly video games but like half the mix is based around great SNES and PSX samples. Jeremih X Chrono Trigger is a standout.


#5

Thanks.

Sakamoto did a lot of commercial work, he definitely didn’t seem to see a barrier between that and his personal projects. The uncredited advert section in Mix II features some of his music and the man himself modelling in a watch ad. He also did the sound for stuff like NHK News & Microsoft I.E.4.0

I may have linked this in another thread before, but that was almost a year ago, and it seems particularly relevant now, given 8tracks just lifted their “only 2 hours a month for free accounts” listening limit and made it unlimited for everyone, but a few years ago I actually started up an 8tracks playlist for video game music (far enough back it was when the site called them “mixtapes”)

I used to run a Winamp station way back when that was in vogue (live365 represent). This playlist was created kind of as a tribute to that

It’s front-loaded with things I’d think would have slightly more mainstream appeal, but as you keep listening it’ll start getting in to slightly more esoteric music (chiptunes, cheesy vocals, etc.).


#7

Here’s another one. This time 8bit & video game dub reggae
