If you constantly find yourself revisiting old Sonic soundtracks for that sweet hit of nostalgia, then you might be just as excited as us to hear about the brand new album from the record label Game Chops and the LA composer Funk Fiction called Sonic & Chill.
The 14-track album was released just last week and remixes classic tracks from games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic Mania, Sonic R, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 to create a relaxing playlist spanning a range of genres like RnB, funk, and hip hop.
In a statement released alongside the launch of the album, Funk Fiction called the album "a passion project" and listed their influences as acts such as Jamiroquai, Sade, Yuzo Koshiro, and Michael Jackson, as well as genres like bossa nova, new jack swing, soul, city pop, acid/smooth jazz, disco/classic house, and '90s dance.
The release is the latest in a series of albums from the label Game Chops, which has previously collaborated with other electronic artists on similar records paying tribute to the music of The Legend of Zelda series, Super Mario, and Dark Souls.
