"This is a project that has been on our minds for a long time and we're very fortunate
that Sumthing Else Music Works allowed the album to be exactly how we envisioned
it," said Michael Cisneros at Speed Racer Enterprises. "We're very fortunate to
have such talented artists on the record and we're more than happy to give them
some well-deserved exposure. The driving beats of this soundtrack are meant to
be played very loud in your car and driven fast to... after all, it is Speed Racer."
"'Speed Racer' is based on a Japanese Manga Comic Strip entitled 'Mach Go Go Go'
and soon after made into an anime cartoon. In 1967 the show was brought to the
United States and became one of the most popular characters in American Television
History. Featuring Speed and his high-tech driving machine, The Mach 5, Speed Racer
combines racing with intrigue as he takes on the most treacherous of adversaries
with the aid of his family and the mysterious Racer X.
Now, over 40 years later, Speed Racer is fully encompassed as a pop culture icon
and more popular than ever."
