Legendary Nintendo Composer Hip Tanaka Releases Solo Album

Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka, composer for a number of Nintendo games such as Donkey Kong, Metroid, and Earthbound, has released a new solo album titled Django.

Under the stage name of Chip Tanaka, Django is exactly what it sounds like, a collection of original chiptune music that invokes a lot of Tanaka’s earlier works throughout the 8- and 16-bit eras.

You can check out a preview of the album below, which is available on ITunes.
