OCR03375 - Sonic the Hedgehog "Sonik Cosmotronik"

Recommended Posts

A great track by Mike - the moment he showed his WIP to me I was digging this. I'm glad one of us represented Sonic on the 25th anniversary, and doing green hill in his trademark 80's style couldn't have fit the bill better.

Was the original track in a major key? If so, then changing to C minor definitely adds a dark and dramatic flair to what was originally a simple, groovetastic, paradise-y song. Loved Sir Nuts's vocoder on his SF2 Zangief mix and here it's even better. Synth leads are very busy so it takes a few listens to get used to just like some of Willrock's stuff but I like it in the end. Nice original take on Green Hill sir.

Nuts.

I love the mix, the only two comments I'd have is the first chord probably should've been minor like the rest, and the harmony on the first part ends up on strange notes as it stays paralell entirely. It shouldn't end on the 6th of the chord like that and stick with 1/3/5 and sometimes 7 or 9 (depending)

It's a great mix, very creative. But it's very disconcerting to hear this particular song, especially in the upbeat, synth style, transposed to a minor key. Not saying it's a bad thing, but it has a very haunting sound to it. Which, I think is ironic given the source material.

Totally unique. Totally original. Thought you couldn't get this level of interpretation without totally abandoning the source material. I was wrong!! I'm not well-versed in this style, but damn, you really capture the ear with this one! Am I the only one that thinks this would have been right at home in the 90's Sonic cartoon? Either way, I think Sonic would be proud about this birthday present.

i have known nuts a loooong time, and he over and over again he amazes me with the way he writes his music. to write this song in this key and have it sound so good is just kinda funny i suppose. I usually hear WIPs of his tracks, but this one i didnt even know he was writing until i saw it on the front page. Nuts always out-does  anything he has previously done. i am not sure how he keep on going, but im sure glad that he does.

awesome job as always :)
