In the land of commercial music, Hideki Naganuma is mainly known as a videogame composer who scored some tunes on the Jet-Set Radio soundtrack (a Sega Dreamcast now cult game that didn't reach commercial success in its time despite great reviews).

A specific taste was added by the fact that it was nicely crushed through the DS nasty sound engine, resulting in a no-bass / full midrange abrasive harshness.
OST was released on cd in Japan under the name Original Groove Rush.
