Diggin' In The Carts trailer

Former Auckland DJ Nick D, now based in Japan, has been working on a very cool project, documenting the people behind the music for classic Japanese video games. Watch the trailer to catch the vibe. 

"For many of us, the music of video games played more in our households growing up than any other form of music. Diggin’ In The Carts is about unearthing the men and women who inspired an entire generation while arguably creating Japan’s biggest musical export to the world.

The series will include six episodes about some of the greatest composers of the 8-bit and 16-bit era of video game music ...

... From the personal studios of these legendary composers, to the concert halls of Japan where symphony orchestras are performing their compositions to sold-out crowds today - the series will document how the music of video games was created, what inspired it, and how it evolved into its own cultural phenomenon."

Watch the first episode on on September 04.
