With it's 15th anniversary recently completed, there have been a lot of recent efforts to celebrate Studio Ghibli's classic Spirited Away. Melbourne-based Andrei Eremin (Ghosting) may have come up with one of the more creative ways to do so, composing a full album inspired by the works of Hayao Miyazaki.

Titled "Reimagining Hayao Miyazaki", the project takes the classic tunes of Ghibli favorites such as Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, and Spirited Away, and fuses them with a brooding but pleasantly calming hip hop beat that makes one think of Samurai Champloo. Read up more on the project, to be released May 12th, here, and check out the first track--a mix of One Summer's Day from Spirited Away, below!
