Listen to 'hacked' Streets of Rage OST 'STREET SAFER, GO! by HACKORDIE16

I'm trying to sort out all the strife happening in my mind due to this album. I've seen mods and hacks of video games proper. But a hack of an OST!? Apparently that is what the group HACKORDIE16 has done, warping the classic FM sounds that are the Streets of Rage OST into some kind of alternate earth vaporwave known as STREET SAFER, GO!. 

'Don't let the strange concept keep you up at night like it does me. Just get groove to the eerily familiar themes of a classic beat em up that may or may not exist in this reality (oh, it actually does exist, enjoy).

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 :)
