Below is a commentary by the label.

"In the 1990s, video games were certainly fun, but they were generally for guilty nerds who got bored easily."Wipeout," released in 1995, was a lightning-fast game. It was a razor-sharp, futuristic racing game that helped launch the PlayStation in Europe and North America. It looked and sounded mature and cool, the kind of game you'd want hanging in your living room instead of hiding under your bed. Key to this was the fact that it unashamedly borrowed from the club experience and electronic music, placing it at the heart of the forward-thinking culture of the mid-'90s. It quickly became a phenomenon.

wipE'out' draws heavily on the bright colors and exciting geometric shapes of early 90s rave and club flyers, and was created by Sheffield agency The Designers Republic, known for its warp work. He created the visuals, packaging, and manuals for the company, creating a sensational impression.

wipeE'out' also sounded like a new rave dream. The European version of the game featured music by the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Leftfield, and Orbital, a fashionable game synch that was almost unheard of at the time. By this point, he was already a veteran of the video game world, having composed music for Amiga titles such as Lemmings and Shadow of the Beast 2. His music for wipE'out is, if anything, more extreme than his famous sync, mixing the accelerating beats of drum'n'bass with the pure synthesizers of trance, making it feel as much like playing a game. They created a sound that was breathtakingly exciting.

These tracks were burned into the minds of millions of gamers. It was the soundtrack for a generation that enjoyed late-night anti-gravity races as the sun gently rose behind the curtains. But perhaps they haven't been given the respect they deserve. Remixed, remastered and repackaged by cutting-edge producers such as Kode9, μ-Ziq, Brainwaltzera, Simo Cell, Wordcolour, James Shinra, Surgeons Girl and Dattassette, this work includes some of the most important and thrilling video game music history. It contains a number of innovative and fun songs. "

Lapsus:

"Back in the 1990s video games were still largely seen as nerdy: fun, sure, but basically a guilty pleasure that you'd soon grow out of. The release in 1995 of wipE'out'', a lightning-fast, razor-sharp , futuristic racing game that helped to launch the PlayStation in Europe and North America, changed all that. This was a game that looked and sounded both adult and cool, the kind of game you would put on display in your living room, rather than hide away under your bed. Key to this was the fact that wipE'out'' borrowed unashamedly from the clubbing experience and electronic music, in a way that put it at the heart of progressive mid 90s culture. It soon became a phenomenon.

wipE'out'' looked sensational, with Sheffield agency The Designers Republic - known for their work with Warp - creating the visuals, packaging and manual for the game, drawing heavily on the bright colors and excitable geometric shapes of the rave and club flyers of the early 90s.

wipE'out'' also sounded like a new rave dream. The European version of the game included music from The Chemical Brothers, Leftfield and Orbital, the kind of fashionable game syncs that were almost unheard of at the time. Equally striking was the game's original music, which came from Welsh musician Tim Wright, aka CoLD SToRAGE, by this point already a veteran in the video games world, having worked on the music for Amiga titles such as Lemmings and Shadow of the Beast 2. His music for wipE'out'' was, if anything, even more extreme than the big -name syncs, mixing the accelerated beats of drum & bass with the pure synth rush of trance to make music that sounded as breathlessly exciting as playing the game felt.

These tracks were burned into the brains of millions of gamers; the soundtrack to a generation of late-night anti-gravity racing, as the sun gingerly rose beyond the curtains. But they haven't, perhaps, quite got the respect they deserve, something that this release will address. In 2023, video game music is finally getting its dues; here, remastered and repackaged –and also remixed by cutting edge producers such as Kode9, μ-Ziq, Brainwaltzera, Simo Cell, Wordcolour, James Shinra, Surgeons Girl and Dattassette– are some of the most important, thrilling, innovative and most fun songs ever committed to game release.
