This year marks the 20th anniversary of Donkey Kong Country’s release. Receiving high praise from gamers and critics alike, Donkey Kong Country became the second-best selling Super Nintendo game of all time. The original Donkey Kong Country soundtrack, written by beloved video game composer David Wise, was released under the title DK Jamz. Described as atmospheric “jungle music”, the soundtrack features a wide range of musical styles blended with natural environmental sounds. Club Kong works popular melodies from the Donkey Kong Country series into a modern jazz fusion arrangement. Like stepping into electronic jazz club, this artistic re-imagination will captivate Donkey Kong and electronic music fans alike.
