Throughout the Nintendo Life Video Game Music Festival we’ve been speaking to a range of composers and musicians for a mixture of in-depth interviews and shorter, sharper (and perhaps a little goofier) Q&As where we ask just ten rapid-fire personal questions; we’re calling these shorter features ‘Quick Beats’.

We spoke to today’s interviewee not too long ago, where we discussed moving from animating to soundtrack work, and working on a critically acclaimed ‘pop album video game’. Today, though, Daniel Olsén returns to answer 10 quickfire questions that have been a mainstay of this NL VGM Festival.

Let’s get into it!

Nintendo Life: What was the first song or album you remember buying?

Daniel Olsén: The first album was either Europe’s The Final Countdown, or a Phil Collins album. The first single I bought was LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out.
