Red Bull put together this great series last year about Japanese video game music in retro games. It features a lot of unseen heroes who created some of the most memorable melodies in games like Final Fantasy, Pacman, or Street Fighter with very little to work with. It’s a fascinating watch and it features interviews with Flying Lotus and Anamanaguchi.
Captain Murphy debuted a few weeks ago on Adult Swim’s music label, but little else is known about the gravelly voiced rapper. While a lot of people suspect that it might be beatmaker Flying Lotus on the mic based on his relationship with Adult Swim and his established affinity for naming himself after Adult Swim characters, the few tracks out now are all kinds of awesome. Hopefully we’ll hear more from this soon.
