Rediscover the early stages of Ryuichi Sakamoto's career with this free selection of music videos by Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Celebrate the dawn of electronic music and the proto-videogame aesthetic with this short and sharp collection of music videos, presented in all their standard-def glory.

After the better part of a decade experimenting with electronic music at university and beyond, Ryuichi Sakamoto joined forces with Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi to form what would become one of the most influential electronic music bands of all time: Yellow Magic Orchestra. Here we present a selection of their music videos including 'Tong Poo' from their debut, self-titled album through to the disarmingly charming 'Kimi ni, mune kyun' from the Naughty Boys (1983) album.
