ZONED

by OSC

Zoned - a nostalgic trip (at the speed of sound) down Sonic The Hedgehog's memory lane. Zoned aims to pay homage to the creativity and impact of Sonic The Hedgehog's legacy by reimagining a selection of OSC's favourite compositions from the golden age of 90s Sonic The Hedgehog games. The musical style is OSC's signature blend of Electro-Funk and Retrowave with sprinklings of Chiptune. Included on this album are tracks from both 8 and 16 bit versions of Sonic The Hedgehog 1 and 2, Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Sonic Chaos. Also interweaved into this album are soundbites from the games themselves, excerpts from 90s SEGA TV commercials, and dialogue from various video game documentaries that discuss both the significance of SEGA and Sonic The Hedgehog in the history and develop of video games and video game music.
