Time for another abstract remix! No, that’s not the remix skipping nor is it your speakers glitching. This song is done in a techno, glitch style. This time, we have a song based on the music of Sonic Adventure 2, because what’s one adventure without the other? It was inspired by the 2-player races you can have in the game. It’s interesting, really. The game never did have any 2-player-specific music. It really does sound like a mesh of various songs from the soundtrack, and I bet it would make playing against another player extra challenging.
This is a rock remix of “Free”, the theme song of Sonic Free Riders. And this remix has a very interesting story… Even though the original version was sung by someone else, Crush 40 wrote this song themselves. It’s only natural they would preform their own cover of it! And honestly, I prefer this version over the original. Somehow, it just has more polish and structure than the original, and yet it doesn’t stray too far away from the original melody that it feels like whiplash. I love it, and I hope you do too!

If Modern Sonic were to make a grand return to Little Planet and it’s time traveling magic, this would be the theme song of his adventure.
Here is an official remix made in celebration of Sonic’s 20th Anniversary (the very same one that gave us Sonic Generations). Anyone who bought the 20th Anniversary Edition of the Sonic CD Soundtrack were given two original remixes as bonus tracks, and this is one of them. In this rock remix, Crush 40 take lead, while Cash Cash chimes in with a robotic voice for the main chorus. And no, that’s not autotune at all.

You can’t celebrate Sonic without celebrating his long term rival. Here’s on officially licensed remix from the people at Sega that has been absent from this blog for too long.
This is an electronic rock remix of the vocal Eggman theme song song from Sonic Adventure 2, featured in the game Shadow the Hedgehog. Interestingly enough, this is when Bentley Jones was working with the Remix Factory under the handle “Lee Brotherton”. While I definitely love how this remix gives the song an even more powerful industrial feel that it deserves, I could do without the part that says “Eggman” in a warbled and indistinguishable way. I’m surprised Bentley didn’t try to sing in this remix, might have made it better…
Please support the original release. Buy a copy of the “Lost and Found: Shadow the Hedgehog Vocal Trax” album.
Did the high notes of the original song annoy you? Well, you just might like this drum & bass remix of Emerald Challenge from Sonic Heroes! However, I must say, the drum and bass element in this is very downplayed. It’s almost like a slightly stripped down version of the Special Stage theme, which makes it sound more straight forward with less audio effects/distortion.

I just couldn’t hold myself back. One last His World remix, and then that’s it for this year. Unless I find something that absolutely must be shared.
The studio recorded version of “His World”, the one used as Sonic’s theme in Sonic 2006, was sung by Ali Tabatabaee & Matty Lewis who are both members of the band Zebrahead. Well, if they’re involved, why not the ENTIRE band involved? And this is their punk rock cover, a bonus song from the Several Wills soundtrack that was never actually used in the game.
And to be honest, I kind of had a running joke with these 3 versions… If the Ali & Matty version is Sonic’s theme, does that mean the Crush 40 cover is Shadow’s theme and this Zebrahead version is Silver’s theme? Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought of that!

Description: As you could most likely tell from the title, it’s a short, trance remix of Digital Dimension’s bgm from Sonic Riders. It’s everything that’s addictive about the original, but more traditionally trance! Around the end there’s a nice clap beat added too! Let’s face it, this song is best when rave worthy! Enjoy guys!
Description: An instrumental R&B take on Sonic 3’s Competition Menu. If you’ve never heard DJ-Max-e’s work, you are seriously missing out! From what I understand this album is still unfinished and I haven’t a clue if he plans to complete it…
Description: A funky take on Sonic CD’s JP/EU boss theme. Personally, I ADORE this song and HIGHLY recommend it! This song also incorporates other BGMs in the game. If you love Sonic CD’s JP/EU soundtrack, I can practically promise you’ll love this!
Be glad that I canceled our original April Fools tradition in favor of something new. This was one of the songs I was originally going to fool you all with…
…But it’s still an amazing mashup! Made by our residential mashup master psycosis91, this song is a surprise hidden track in his album TRIGR WARNING 3. It combines “Gotta Go Fast” from Sonic X, “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and the opening theme from the TV show Cory in the House. It doesn’t get it any more random than this.
