Hover: Revolt of Gamers summons Jet Set Radio, OST out now

Touted as a spiritual successor or indie revival of Sega’s beloved Jet Set Radio, Hover: Revolt of Gamers just launched on Steam at the end of May and the soundtrack release has followed closely behind. Just as the visuals and gameplay are inspired by the vivid cel-shading and skate-grinding of Jet Set, the music calls to mind the funky electronic jams of the original games.

In fact, Midgar Studio was able to enlist the help of one of Jet Set’s key composers for Hover, Hideki Naganuma. He provides the first two tracks on the album with the remaining 14 songs composed by Cédric Menendez. It isn’t immediately as flashy as Jet Set’s mish-mash of genres but the breakbeats and jams are quite enjoyable as I’ve been listening this morning. Check it out for yourself above and grab the album on Bandcamp for €5 if it gets your toe tapping.
