By date the fastest song I’ve ever done, set at 256 BPM. I had always wanted to do a song of this speed. I think Grand Metropolis was perfect cause it’s a fast moving city, and Sonic is still running faster than the traffic, what with the roads that push you forward. Still wanted the happy-go-lucky background of the song as well. That’s why I used the lead instrument I did, a whistly satisfying sound. Had some fun with sound effects as well. Also played around with drum combinations and tempo changes. I felt it made for an interesting twist to a piece. It wasn’t just wonderful practice, but was also very well received by the audience.

Can you teach me how can I make something like this please? I love this song very much! Also I'm making a remix of Frog Forest, but I need to make it better and I don't know how :/

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

I suggest letting the music come to you. Keep listening to the original, but try to think of things you yourself would add to it or replace something with. I can't tell you how you're feeling, or what good memories tick your mind. Usually that correlates to what you put down in your song.
