The first episode of Red Bull Music Academy's five-part series Diggin in the Carts is online now, it's beautifully shot, and you should watch it. Here's the trailer: 

You can watch the entire thing at the RBMC site. 

The series is taking a deep-digging look at the the production, influence and overall legacy of video game music, starting with those 8-bit classics that are no doubt burned into your brain matter. 

Producers such as Mobb Deep's HavocFlying Lotus, Just Blaze, J. Rocc and Oh No go on record in the series to talk about the music's impact. You'll also learn a thing or two about overall video game history and how those early games were made. 

Part II of the series will be released on Sept. 11.
