Notes

"Hyperdub are proud to present Diggin’ In The Carts, a collection of rare and pioneering Japanese video game music.
This release builds on the critically acclaimed Red Bull Music Academy documentary series of the same name that has chronicled the history and global influence of this exciting early strain of electronic music.

Researched and curated by Diggin’ In The Carts writer / co-director Nick Dwyer and Hyperdub label head Kode9, the collection plunges deep into the rare archives of the chip era of Japanese video game music. Out on November 17th on CD and digital, with a vinyl run to follow, the collection features artwork by renowned Japanese anime artist and Studio °4C founder Koji Morimoto, who directed Memories and Animatrix and who’s distinctive style is in many well known anime."
