Four for the Fourth!
We decided to celebrate the 4th of July with FOUR mixes, all from Sonic games, posted in the order said games were released. Why? Because the Founding Fathers would have wanted it that way, that's why... Had, you know, they been aware of television, video games, and video game music... minor details. While I'm proud of the fact that OCR has a global community that includes artists and VGM fans from all over the world, homebase is the US of A, and many of you will no doubt be patriotically BBQing and setting off low-grade explosives to honor the day Jeff Goldblum uploaded a virus to the alien mothership using a MacBook and saved the planet. Also, the whole 1776 thing. First up we've got halc, who writes:
"This is a Labyrinth Zone ReMix that was originally set to appear on the The Sound of Speed, though I pulled it from the album in favor of Ben's (superior :p) mix of the same theme. In a fairly recent playthrough of the game I have managed to actually KILL Robotnik in Labyrinth Zone (if you're aware of how that boss fight works, you know that's no easy task).. just thought I'd share that. As for the mix, uh.. enjoy!"
This isn't the most popular source from the original Sonic OST, but you know you can count on Drew to do it justice. A swimming intro quickly gives way to super peppy bass, chirpy chip lead synths, and crunchy beats. At 1'25" when the beat drops back in with backing synths that beef up the melody, it's pretty disco-fabulous. But what's this? 2'03" begins an accelerando as we, the listeners, drown in an accelerating asphyxiation of rapidity until a cathartic release back into the main melody, at a mellower & more oxygenated tempo. A cute fx ending rounds out a great, sugary-sweet treat of a mix that takes one of the less orthodox, somewhat more Latin tracks from the classic OST and dresses it up to the 9s, halc-style.
