Hideki Naganuma (長沼 英樹), born May 16, 1972 in Hokkaido prefecture, Japan, is a former musician for SEGA best known for his work in the Jet Set Radio series and Sonic Rush. He joined the company in 1998, becoming affiliated with Smilebit (2000-2003) and Amusement Vision (2004-2008), and has remained employed there until early 2009 as a member of Wave Master. Outside of Sega he also remixed Captain Straydum's "Fuusen Gum" for the first ending theme of the 2006 anime series Gintama, though he went uncredited. His music is broadly defined as J-Pop, but can be quite hard to categorize. He is skilled at mixing Japanese techno, funk, soul, and hip-hop elements to create a unique and vivid sound.

Additional work was created under the name skankfunk, including the soundtrack for the anime Air Gear (a series akin to Jet Set Radio in premise as well as musical style). This name has been used again for Naganuma's ongoing contributions post-Sega employment to the Yakuza and Super Monkey Ball series.

When he was five years old, he started to play the electronic organ under the influence of an older sister. At fourteen years old, he became interested in western music and started to compose original songs. It was then Naganuma decided that he must have a job in the music business. He graduated from Kiyota High school in Sapporo.

His influences include Prince, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Donald Fagen, Norman Cook, Ennio Morricone, Chick Corea, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hitoshi Matsumoto and Satoru Sayama. Naganuma's favorite video games are Gran Turismo, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Virtua Fighter, and The Legend of Zelda; his hobbies are music, movies, collecting CDs and DVDs, fighting sports, tennis and traveling.

Some of the equipment he uses includes Digital Performer, MOTU2408, Sound Designer II, Peak, Roland JV-1080, KORG Trinity, AKAI S3200XL, CLAVIA Nord Rack2 and YAMAHA O3D.
