Brand new forum member KGB525 comes out of nowhere today with a release retro Sonic fans are bound to be interested in–an original, 14-track album full of music inspired by the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive’s sound chip, the YM2612. Made using the VOPM VST, Reaper and a Yamaha M08 keyboard, Sonicesque, Vol. I takes inspiration from Mystic Cave Zone, Marble Zone among several other classic Sonic zones to create a collection of music that any Sonic fan is bound to like.
From KGB himself:
“Sonicesque, Vol. I” – an album of original songs in the style of the classic Genesis-era Sonic games. This is a tribute to Sonic composers like Masato Nakamura, whose melodic and rhythmically driven music made you want to play those levels again and again. Fans of Sonic music will enjoy nods to classic levels, such as “Mystic Cave Zone”, and “Marble Zone” among others. These are all original songs, written by myself, Karl Brueggemann. I recorded these using the VOPM VST, Reaper, and my Yamaha M08 keyboard. Thanks for listening, and let me know what you think!
You can listen to the album via its YouTube playlist or download the entire thing on Mediafire. Check out the forum thread here. To listen to more of KGB’s music, check out his website – KarlBrueggemann.com.
I’d make a joke about lack of dying cats but I’m too busy enjoying this.
Though I think there’s a bit much snare, it’s not that bad. I really liked Crooked Caverns.
I sit back and imagine it’s 1995 and I’m playing ‘proper’ Sonic 4.
Been listening to this for like five hours straight. So much love.
This is really REELY good.
hahahah, man, I know some people owns SEGA with fangames, but this guy just owned Jun Senoue with the music. Things are getting past the line.
Oh look, a Lemmings-like song
i’ll be quite honest with you, i don’t like it and i don’t see how anyone can see this is better than Sonic 4’s music 🙁
You don’t even need to like the music to know that it’s far superior than Sonic 4 music 😛
