Episode 160: Katsuhiro Hayashi

Katsuhiro Hayashi, also known as "Funky KH" was one of Sega's earliest and most important composers. He did some of the best arcade work in the mid to late '80s, and then went on to freelance for other companies. He has a very unique, rhythmically centered compositional style, and is one of Karl's favorite game composers. Enjoy!
