The Diggin’ In The Carts radio host brings the lost sounds of Japanese chip music to the dancefloor.

DITC 音 AKA Diggin’ In The Carts creator and radio host Nick Dwyer has spent the last two years listening through the entire history of Japanese video game music, unearthing rare and pioneering gems that, for the most part, have never been heard outside of Japan. Going deep into the archives of globally renowned systems like the Famicom, Super Famicom and the PC-Engine, as well as Japan-only platforms like the MSX and Japanese home computers like the PC-8801 and the FM Towns, Dwyer aims to showcase these musical works not just as “video game music,” but as incredible pieces of Japanese electronic music in their own right.
