Click on the GIFs to hear the masterpieces our creators made!
Chemical Plant Zone from Sonic 2 by Uhrwek Klockwerx
Our first song is a re-remix of Chemical Plant Zone from Sonic 2 by Uhrwek Klockwerx. It's always incredible to revisit old projects and see how you've improved over time, and this is a super fun upgrade. It's a very fitting way for them to celebrate a 2K follower milestone. This is also a graduation of sorts to move on to making more original content. Can't wait to see what they make next.
Turnaround by Melo
With its intricate baseline, it would fit right in as the soundtrack for a high-speed chase through a futurist city, or as the battle theme in a creepy dungeon. This is an original piece for their new FM album, and it sounds like this is just the beginning of something truly incredible.
Area F by Evolução Gamer
This song is from Mega Man ZX, which was set 200 years after the Mega Man Zero Series events. This remix makes the song even more mysterious while staying true to the original.
Lost and Saddened by n1k-o
For the next piece on our list, we have Lost and Saddened by n1k-o. This is part of the soundtrack they wrote for a game called Misplaced, which is a meditative puzzle platformer for the Mega Drive. It's got an incredible beat, and it's the perfect background for all your puzzle-solving needs.
Dream Land by 3-UP
Hope you're ready for another incredible entry. From the 2022 Battle of the Bits advent calendar, this song is by 3-UP, called Sega's Dreamland. That day's challenge was choosing Game Boy or the Sega Master System on Deflemask. They imagined an alternate timeline where Kirby had been on the game gear instead of the Game Boy. You can hear the Kirby-like tunes throughout this one. It's certainly an adorably fun re-imagining of the series.
South Side Smooth by Haberchuck
It's time to change the vibe with this next piece by Haberchuck. This song is from the Scum City Skull Busters soundtrack and is called Southside Smooth City Street Stage. Although it may be a bit of a tongue twister, it's a super chill song with many funk and hip-hop influences from that iconic genre. It's truly an ode to retro-beat him-ups.
Space Junk Galaxy by MattJHart
It's time to explore space peacefully with this cover of Space Junk Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy. MattJHart has used the Mega Drive and Genesis sounds to make a playful, retro-inspired homage to the original. It lovingly showcases the nuances of the original songs orchestral, nature, and grace.
Sonic 2 Underground Zone V1 by Kade the Cathog
This piece is an absolute treat, and Kade has put a fun spin on it while staying true to the heart of the original. As always. You can't go wrong with putting an excellent Sonic cover like this on your workout playlist if you wanna put an extra spring in your set.
Jupiter by Geebone
Now it's time for a recent original song made by Geebone. This piece is called Jupiter and is made in Deflemask using the Genesis and Mega Drive chipsets. It has a mysterious-sounding synth that reinforces the song's name and a space-like feel to give an incredible otherworldly experience.
Letter Ambience by The Emotional Guy
Our final piece of the day is The Emotional Guy's recent original song, Letter Ambience. They experimented with ambient and downbeat tones to make the stark-natured techno piece. Many of their trademark instruments, such as the strings and FM trumpet, are still used, but the lower octaves bring a refreshing new sound style.
