Greetings TAY readers, I wanted to share with you all a very special project I have been slaving away at for the better part of 2016. But first let’s rewind to 2010.
In 2010, I released a full length LP of cover versions of (almost) every song from the 16-bit Sonic series. It was quite well received, even if I personally wasn’t too happy with it. Well for 2016, I decided to revisit this project, and remix two songs from each soundtrack, and release them as a new EP.
Where I was not entirely happy with the original LP, I can say without doubt, that I am 101% satisfied with the end result of this project. And as a gift to any of you old school Sonic fans, I have decided to make it a free release.
My history with the little blue guy is long and full of twists and turns. For you see, not only was I a hardcore fan as a kid growing up with my Genesis, but I also worked at SEGA for several years in the early 2000's. I got to be the lead gameplay tester for Sonic Adventure 2, and the Assistant Lead on SA2: Battle for Gamecube. It was kind of like living the dream. So this project is extra special to me.
You can grab the full EP, in all of it’s mastered glory from the Bandcamp link above, or you can enjoy this playlist of videos I made for each song on the release below at YouTube.
