Hideki Naganuma (長沼 英樹 Naganuma Hideki, born May 16, 1972) is a Japanese composer, DJ, and remixer who primarily does work for video game soundtracks. Naganuma is best known for his original compositions for the Dreamcast game Jet Set Radio (Jet Grind Radio in North America). He also composed several tracks for Jet Set Radio's Xbox sequel, Jet Set Radio Future. In 2004, he composed for the arcade skateboarding game Ollie King. He was nominated to receive the Golden Joystick Award for Soundtrack of the Year for his work on the 2005 release Sonic Rush for the Nintendo DS.
He also composed "Love Sensation" and "Sky-2-High" for the anime Air Gear under the alias of skankfunk. In 2012, he contributed the track "LUV CAN SAVE U" for the 20th installment of the arcade rhythm game Beatmania IIDX, produced by Konami and part of the Bemani series.
Naganuma started his musical career by playing the electronic organ, aged five, under the influence of his older sister. When he was fourteen, he became interested in western music and composed his own songs. He then decided to have a job in the music business.
He was a DJ and bartender from 1993 to 1997. During this time, he was also a singer-songwriter who was aiming to be in the J-pop industry. He abandoned these plans and in 1998, he sent demo tapes to Sega and joined that year, doing voice editing for Shoujo Kakumei Utena: Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari and composing for Hip Jog Jog. The following year, he composed for the home version of Sega Rally 2 and Atsumare! Guru Guru Onsen.
In 2000, he had his breakthrough with Jet Set Radio, composing eight tracks. He would then go on to compose for its sequel Jet Set Radio Future. In 2004, he composed for the arcade skateboarding game Ollie King.
In 2005, he collaborated with Teruhiko Nakagawa for Sonic Rush. The following year, he was responsible for music supervision and composing two tracks for the anime adaption of Air Gear, itself being influenced by Jet Set Radio. For contractual reasons, he used the "skankfunk" alias as he was part of Sega at the time.
