about

.

STREET SAFER, GO! is a homage both to SEGA's golden age of game production and the musical genius of Yuzo Koshiro.

Streets of Rage - or ベアナックル 怒りの鉄拳 (Bare Knuckle: Furious Iron Fist) - is a seminal entry in the beat-em-up genre of the 16-bit era. Gsaurus has hacked this game over and over and over, and one such hack resulted in the present release, simply consisting in mathematically inverting the code for the original score's note values.

Much to our surprise, Yuzo Koshiro's 16 bit masterpiece still sounds great if played back "from the bottom up" :O Everything is different yet recognizable as the streets we remember beating up so many a punk in. Almost as if we're in the same city but at a different time period.

So the original score is so good it still works if you turn it on its head - guess Yuzo Koshiro is the man!
Enjoy :)

Absolute special thanks:

Yuzo Koshiro, the original composer for the timeless STREETS OF RAGE soundtrack whose work afforded STREET SAFER, GO! to exist in the first place; Data Discs for releasing the most excellent game OSTs in vinyl, bundled with fine prints sourced from original art archives; and of course SEGA itself for making the original game and influencing gaming culture forever.
Props and respect.



All tracks sampled at 96kHz/24bit from a Mega Drive PAL-G, model no. 1600-18 (high definition graphics - stereo sound*), serial no. 120096448, using krikzz's Everdrive MD custom cartridge.

*Music is a bit slower than what you might be used to because PAL Mega Drives (Europe) run a slower master clock than any other NTSC models (US or JP), thus making the overall sound pitch lower.

Track listing follows the naming and order found in SoR's sound test menu; recordings follow traditional Japanese OST track format of two loops & fade.
