Sound of Play: 60 – The Donkey Kong Country special

Welcome to our weekly podcast dedicated to videogame music – Sound of Play

In this special 60th edition of Sound of Play, we bring 26 wonderful tracks from Rare’s Donkey Kong Country series. Following the work of the masterful David Wise and the various other composers that have followed in his footsteps, we roll our way through over 20 years of video game music to present a selection of Donkey Kong Country classics. The list can hardly be comprehensive, but we tried to select a mixture of fan favorites and relative unknowns.

This show’s presenters are Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins) and Darren Gargette (@dezm0nd).
