That was such an honour: when Takkyu Ishino curated the lineup of his favourite producers to contribute to a Sony Playstation video game based on the anime Ghost In The Shell from 1995, he invited a who-is-who-of-techno to participate: Claude Young aka Brother From Another Planet, Derrick May, Dave Angel, Hardfloor, C.J. Bolland, The Advent, Westbam, Joey Beltram, Scan X and yours truly. As a huge fan of Shirow Masamune‘s mangas and that particular anime, it was like a dream come true.
I created three tunes for this game: “Brain Dive”, which you can hear in-between levels, “Firecracker” – already appearing in the second game level and “Fuchikoma”, which you can hear …uhm….in a later level. 😉
All these tunes have also been released through Sony Music Japan on double CD, on double vinyl and on marvellous picture discs and I still love to play them out.
