The composer behind classics like Fez and Hyper Light Drifter discusses his signature sound. Plus, a zoom in on US soundtracks.

In the final feature interview of this season, Nick Dwyer sits down with Rich Vreeland, AKA Disasterpeace, whose chip-influenced take on contemporary video game music shimmers and pulses with a uniquely emotive sound that’s very much all his own. He’s elevated games like Fez and Hyper Light Drifter into modern-day classics. Also on this episode: We touch down in the USA to take a look at some of the pioneering names and soundtracks in US video game history; Brainfeeder artist Jameszoo contributes an incredible selection; and Nick devotes the episode’s composer focus to a godfather of UK video game music, Rob Hubbard.
