Tee Lopes
Sonic Mania

The Sonic series is as legendary for its lush hyper-pop soundtrack as it is for its super-speed platforming joy, so what a delight to get sixteen tracks of Sonic goodness pressed to vinyl for some proper listening. Sonic Mania is the work of Tee Lopes, and this vinyl collection (with exclusive artwork) is released by Data Discs for the twenty-sixth anniversary of the Sonic series.

Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, Ryuji Luchi, Osamu Murata & Yuzo Koshirp
Shenmue

Shenmue was a groundbreaking Sega game released in the late ‘90s that rocked the gaming world. You can now relive that nostalgia by getting a selection of the orchestral pieces from the soundtrack by Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, Ryuji Luchi, Osamu Murata and Yozu Koshirp pressed on to 180gm blue vinyl.

Hirofumi Murasaki, Morihiko Akiyama and Masayuki Nagao
Shinobi III - Return Of The Ninja Master

This is a cool one! The soundtrack to Shinobi III - Return of the Ninja Master, a Sega game from 1993 in which the player took the role of a deadly ninja, taking on seven deadly bosses through dense forests, deep caverns and deadly dungeons. It was all soundtracked by Hirofumi Murasaki, Masayuki Nagao and Morihiko Akiyama and the 16bit music is incredibly punchy, with some super percussion going on under some intricate melodies. It really is awesome stuff. Remastered on 180g vinyl from the original recordings, the vinyl comes with a foldout poster with some original artwork from the SEGA archives and a traditional OBI strip.

Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi
Space Harrier

Back in 1985, Space Harrier hit the arcades, with a memorable Yamaha DX-7 soundtrack by Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi. Who could have predicted, back then, that vinyl would fall all the way out of favour and then right back into serious favour once again, and that these electronic miniatures would one day be presented in a deluxe format, replete with crisp artwork and liner notes? Features all the original score, plus a live band version of the Main Theme.

Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi
After Burner II

Sega’s in-house composer Hiroshi ‘Hiro’ Kawaguchi has been behind the sound of many of the video game developer’s best-loved volumes, with credits for releases in the Sonic and Dragon Ball Z series to his name. This record - out via Data Discs (who else?) - sees Kawaguchi’s score for the 1987 game After Burner II set to wax. Not only is the original music a cast-iron chiptune classic, but the release includes a second LP of bonus material and reworkings of tracks from the main soundtrack.

Yuzo Koshiro & Motohiro Kawashima
Streets of Rage 3

Rage 3: Still Raging. By now you might know, and maybe you even owned one of those Mega Drives (or, dare I say it, one of those illegal emulators) that allowed you to play this beat 'em up. Yuzo Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima did the soundtrack, using electronic autopilot and specific techniques of programming to create a series of remarkable musical resonance.

Metal Slug is an absolute classic in the genre of massively explosive shoot-em-up games, in which bullets and bombs fly around the screen at relentless pace. This slick vinyl release contains the 1996 soundtrack to the original release in the franchise, composed by Takushi Hiyamuta to mirror the energy of the game. The complete audio, for the first time on vinyl! From Data Discs.

Tohru “Master” Nakabayashi
Altered Beast

Altered Beast! What a game. From the 1988 arcades, to the spanking new SEGA Mega Drive entering many a suburban household at the time, here's the punchy, grimy soundtrack from Tohru "Master" Nakabayashi! Finally, now carefully mastered specially for vinyl direct from a console in Japan. Epic battle themes and subterranean rumbles intact.

Norio “NON” Hanzawa
Gunstar Heroes

Soundtrack to Gunstar Heroes, a game originally released on the SEGA Mega Drive in 1993. 25 tracks of high intensity chip music with lightning fast bass lines, impossible drum rolls and huge screaming and undulating synths, tracking the various stages, boss levels and credits.

Yuzo Koshiro
The Revenge Of Shinobi

This is bloody awesome! In so many ways. Data discs have dragged the Sega archives and Yuzo Koshiro’s work was at the forefront of 16-bit music. Going on to create the soundtrack to many childhoods with Streets of Rage he developed a lot of techniques with The Revenge of Shinobi in 1989, creating synth orchestras with such a limited palette. Include original artwork for the game and notes from Koshiro.

Nankyoku, Decky & Imocky / Naofumi Hataya
Golden Axe I & II

The delicious 16-bit soundtracks to both Golden Axe games, pressed up to beautiful translucent gold vinyl. The compositional team for the 1989 and 1991 games, comprising Naofumi Hataya, Nankyoku, Decky & Imocky, did a stellar job, so that both the tunes and the old-school textures will stick in the head even if you’ve never played the games. LP on Data Discs, packaged with 2 prints.

Yuzo Koshiro
Streets of Rage II

Crucial 16-bit sonic action from 1992’s Streets Of Rage II, a deep classic of the beat-em-up genre with a suitably high-grade soundtrack. These tunes are packed with energy and composed with love: interestingly, they do stand up to listening away from the context of the game itself. Yuzo Kushiro’s work has been remastered and pressed to 2 discs of transparent vinyl, along with that lovely Japanese obi strip. On Data Discs.

Koichi Namiki, Katsuhiro Hayashi and Shigeru Ohwada
Super Hang On

Super excited about this one. Data Discs present the soundtrack to Sega’s legendary Super Hang On arcade game. Dense arpeggios, rapid-fire bleeps and boogie synths helped make the soundtrack highly sought after and the game an iconic 1980s experience. The music from Koichi Namiki, Shigeru Ohwada and Katsuhiro Hayashi has been taken from the arcade soundboard, mastered for 180g vinyl LP and stunningly packaged in heavy card stock.
