Track: Castle/Twilight City | Game: Wave Race 64 | Composer: Kazumi Totaka.
It may have not been the first game in the series, but Wave Race 64 elevated the franchise and placed it amongst the elite from the 64bit era. And rightly so, it was unique amongst racing games, and created a genre that was quickly imitated by others (a genre that lasted only one generation...). This song is extracted from the Castle/Twilight City Map, also known as the map with the city in the middle of an ocean, surrounded by water mines and fancy coloured searchlights.
Forgotten Cadences examines the less celebrated, but always unusual sounds of video game music.
