Grant Kirkhope is the sound of your childhood.

Or at least the games he scored have that nostalgia swirling around. But even more impressively, Kirkhope isn’t a relic. Despite ushering in and crafting one of the most melodious eras of video game soundtracks in his time with producers Rare, Kirkhope is still pushing out hits. An architect who is ever at the forefront, Kirkhope is near unparalleled in stature and accomplishment. So listen to our interview with him and see why he’s one of the best of the 10s.

I was forgetting the games I’d worked on. I had to look it up. ‘Christ I’ve got another 150 games!’
