- About the Project
Drew Wheeler (halc)
Sonic the Hedgehog. Possibly the first video game I ever played. To this day, I still enjoy speeding through the game once in a while, humming to the music all the while. Popular as it may be, its soundtrack is somewhat overlooked in the VGM arrangement world in comparison to the later Genesis installments. But no more!
I'm extremely honored to present OverClocked ReMix's twenty-fifth album, Sonic the Hedgehog: The Sound of Speed! From rock to chiptune, bossa nova to jazz, FM-funk-fusion and thumping electronica, this album completely re-imagines the classic soundtrack. Each song is unique, but the over-arching theme is undeniable; The Sound of Speed is a chronicle of Sonic's first adventure, flowing from one act to the next, in and out of the elusive Special Zone, down to his untimely aquatic asphyxiation. You'll find something new with every listen.
I couldn't be more proud of the amazing work everyone put into this album, and I hope you all enjoy it!
