Japanese video game music – Mixed by Gaijin Blues

Other Soundtrack Synth Vaporwave

Whilst there’s a myriad of sounds and influences that form Gaijin Blues’ mutant creations, what’s particularly distinct is their love of JRPs.

This is most apparent on their debut full length, Gaijin Blues II, on which the Polish duo create the soundtrack to an imaginary pixellated adventure. For crackaud.io the band pick out some of their favourite soundtracks to the Japanese video games that continue to inspire them.
