FH021 Detainee – Vital Organs

RIYL: grimy synths, cold beats, a morose feeling of nostalgia for black denim

In 1991 Capcom USA, in a bold move to reclaim market share lost to rival video developers and taking advantage of the new 16 bit processors in the Sega Genesis and its rival, the Super NES, commissioned of Andy Fletcher of Depeche Mode to develop a more modern soundtrack for a game in development with a working title “Vital Organs”. The project was eventually scrapped, the music forgotten and the world moved on.

This is what that music would have sounded like.

(Detainee is Taylor Deihl of Minneapolis, MN)
