SEGA Tunes: Watch Takenobu Mitsuyoshi Perform Let’s Go Away Live in the Studio

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

segatunes1

Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is the voice of many of your favourite SEGA themes but if he’s remembered for one in particular it has to be Let’s Go Away from Daytona USA. He also strikes me as a man who absolutely adores his work and that certainly seems like the case if you watch him perform this live rendition of Let’s Go Away in the studio. Press play, crank the volume and let Mitsuyoshi-san take you away:

SEGA Tunes: Audio Sprite’s Charity Remix Album

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Audio Sprite is currently in the process of creating a video game/kids TV remix album with the proceeds going towards CLIC Sargent, a charity for children’s cancer.

In a rather moving gesture which was inspired by the loss of a friend’s 11 year old brother, Audio Sprite has remixed a selection of SEGA classics which includes a Yu Suzuki medley and remixes of songs from Sonic CD and Shenmue. You can check out the work-in-progress album below:

If you think the album is worth a donation then you can visit Audio Sprite’s JustGiving page and help out a good cause.

3 new soundtrack collections of Out Run music have appeared on Amazon.

The 3 collections also feature the new songs by Manabu Namiki and Chibi-Tech that were added to 3D Out Run which is currently Japan exclusive. We can only hope that their inclusion in these collections means a Western release is on the cards.

Volume 1 contains music from Out Run, 3D Out Run and Turbo Out Run, volume 2 contains the full soundtrack to OutRunners and volume 3 contains the full soundtracks to all the iterations of Out Run 2.

Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1
Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 2
Out Run – Original Soundtrack, Vol. 3

Each collection is priced at $9.49 and is digital only.

SEGA Tunes: Marble Madness Remix Album

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

First things first; yes, Marble Madness is an Atari arcade game and not a SEGA game per se, but we at SEGADriven regard any game published for a SEGA first party console fair game for feature on the website. As Marble Madness was released for Master System, Game Gear and Mega Drive it’s entirely relevant to us.

Now that’s out of the way, allow me to present ‘Where Good Marbles Go to Die’; a Marble Madness remix album courtesy of Stemage. The hard rock/heavy metal remix album tackles the entire Marble Madness soundtrack and features guest appearances from Disasterpeace, Lauren Liebowitz of Descendants of Erdrick, norg, XOC, Kirby Pufocia, housethegrate and VikingGuitar.

You can stream the entire thing using the below widget or alternatively download it at a pay-what-you-want price-point. Sadly the limited edition cassette version of the album is now sold out but at least it’s available digitally, right?

SEGA Tunes: Banjo Cover of the Monster Village Theme from Wonder Boy III

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s not often someone sends you a message saying “here’s a video I made featuring a cover of the Monster Village theme from Wonder Boy III. Also it’s been done on a banjo.” Well that’s exactly what happened to me recently and the video was supplied by a certain Ollie LongZ; a talented little musician who has recently taken to arranging banjo covers of video game themes. Check out the impressive little arrangement below:

Here’s hoping Ollie has more SEGA covers up his sleeve, but if you’re interested you can check out another of Ollie’s cover’s by clicking here (it’s a Castlevania one).

SEGA Tunes: Jungle Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog (8 Bit)

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

It’s been a while since we took a look back at some classic SEGA anthems and I thought it was worth featuring the below track simply because it’s been stuck in my head all morning!

Today we are taking a look at the rather lovely 8 bit ditty that is the theme to Jungle Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog for Master System and Gamer Gear. The track was composed by Yuzo Koshiro who is more famously recognised for his thumping, dance style and the Streets of Rage soundtracks.

The Sonic the Hedgehog 8 bit soundtrack showcases Yuzo Koshiro in a lighter, more poppier mood yet still manages to be a highly memorable collection of songs. Hopefully you will all be whistling the Jungle Zone theme once you’re done with this!
