Nick Dwyer’s Top Five Gaming Soundtracks Ever

Red Bull might be an energy drink, but the company is going all kinds of other cool stuff that doesn't involve beverages — and the Red Bull Music Academy is one of them.

Diggin' In The Carts is a new web series which aims to explore the rich — and some would say under-appreciated — history of the Japanese video game music scene, and how it has influenced modern artists who grew up with systems like the NES, SNES and Mega Drive / Genesis.

Director Nick Dwyer has spoken to some of Japan's most iconic video game composers for the purpose of this series, including the legendary Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage) and Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy). You can view the first episode below, and be sure to check out the Red Bull Music Academy site for future instalments.
