OCR03219 - Sonic the Hedgehog "Sailing on Lava"


Recommended Posts

I agree with the crits, but ultimately I love how this turned out. It's interesting that this is kind of an organic/electronic glitch hop track rather than purely electronic, and I find that it distinguishes it well from other tracks of a similar genre. It's also a bit surprising that the bass in the glitch hop sections was the source sometimes, but it felt natural to me, rather than feeling forced. I thought the most creative part was 2:03 - 2:21, where you had a swung interpretation with some intermediate/neighboring notes.

So we go from Motown funk, to dubstep funk, to jazz funk (fusion jazz even?). I guess the dubstep parts represent what would happen if you fell into the lava you were sailing on? I do love how the vocal samples represented the beat dropping the second time. Great track all around.

Awesome mix! It goes through a lot of genres but stays super groovy/funky all the time. Instrumentation is excellent. The Sonic FX were on spot lol The production is very good. Nothing more to say -- I'm amazed by how well this concept worked! Super nice job! :)

Cool. I feel like the more aggressive and glitchy this mix got, the more I liked it. Plenty going on to keep things interesting, sometimes a wee bit too much, but when it hit those sweet sections, especially with the SFX and Sonic's voice playing over the dubs, this gelled together rather well. I always enjoy hearing new fusions of musical styles and ideas, so this was a great listen. I could really dig funky dubs. Not bad at all, dude, good take on Marble Zone.
