"Welcome to Game Music of the Week, Bit Cultures’ weekly tribute to the illustrious yet sometimes underappreciated world of video game music. Each week we’ll give the spotlight to a different game and celebrate the sounds, composers and remixes from the wonderful world of VGM.
I decided to kick off this feature with a game that’s very near and dear to me and an entire SNES generation. Following the success of DKC, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest was a bona fide sequel that expanded on just about every aspect that made the first game so enjoyable. Tougher platforming, more animal sidekicks and, of course, an amazing soundtrack."
