Following an announcement last week, Red Bull Music Academy has debuted the first installment of its new documentary series, Diggin' in the Carts, which explores "the secret history of Japanese video game music." Flying Lotus, Anamanaguchi, Mobb Deep's Havoc, veteran LA DJ J-Rocc, and Hyperdub founder Kode9 all feature in the initial episode of the series, which reportedly taps artists whose musical tastes and interests were shaped by early exposure to video game music. The six-part series arrives ahead of RBMA's upcoming 2014 session in Tokyo, Japan, and future episodes will reportedly feature Thundercat, Dizzee Rascal, Just Blaze, and Ladyhawke, among others. Episode 1, "The Rise of VGM," can be watched in full below.
