R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 Direct Audio is the soundtrack to the video game Ridge Racer Type 4, released in 1999 by Namco. It was the second game soundtrack to be released in the Ridge Racer series and was composed in 1998 by the Namco Sound Team (Kohta Takahashi, Hiroshi Okubo, Asuka Sakai, Tetsukazu Nakanishi, and Koji Nakagawa). The new team was a change from the usual rave music theme that were supplied by Namco's old sound team, Sampling Masters, who worked on the first three installments: Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer 2, and Ridge Racer Revolution. R4 instead explored music styles encompassing funk, breakbeat, acid jazz, UK garage, progressive house, and neo-soul mixed with traditional Namco-styled synth melodies.

The track "Ridge Racer (One More Win)" features American singer Kimara Lovelace. The King Street Sounds label also provided about 20 of the over 40 songs for Ridge Racer 7.
