highereclectic ​Among the games that the growing number of Italian Video Games enthusiasts bought from news stands back in the 80's/90's was that of Simulmondo, an Italian software house.

Basing their monthly episodic games on popular Italian comics at the time, one of their original concepts was dubbed J-Japan -- a series geared towards Japanese manga fans.

Despite Simone Bernacchia being a Map Environment artist associated with the project, the Italian had put together a proposal in the form that is heard here to have him himself recognized as a potential musician for the project. J-Japan sadly never took off, rendering the tune created for it here useless and lost.
Simone Bernacchia alias JMD - Jovanotti MUST Die being a versatile, Italian Amiga homebrew musician adept in the composition of a variety of Electronic and Chip-Rock themed music.

One-time Ubisoft musician Sam Oz being proficient in a plethora of genres, while also actively looking to collaborate with independent game developers & creators via the Higher Eclectic Network.
