Here is a piano/electronic arrangement of the stage BGM Lava Reef Zone Act 1 from the 1994 Sega Genesis video game, Sonic & Knuckles.

This is a collaboration between me and John Weeks.

MIDI Sequenced by John Weeks. Piano arrangement by Dr. Mack Foxx.

I usually just review games here on NG, but damn... seriously, I loved this. I think this is even better than the original game song. Amazing job. A remake of sonic games with sounds like these would be epic! Congrats!

Wow! Thanks a lot for the great review! Really glad you loved this song. ^_^

After three years I'm back and your still making awesome stuff. This and act the second act of this has always been my favorite music from the three original games. (I count Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles the same game.) Is there a looped version of this?

Ah! Good to see you again. ^_^ Newgrounds still gets all of my new tracks first and there are plenty here that are not found elsewhere. At least not yet. At any rate, thanks for coming back and taking the time to review this song! :) Glad you enjoyed it!


DrMackFoxx responds:

Nope. Definitely not, especially on Newgrounds. A track that long here with that 15 MB upload limit would sound horrible. X_X

Improving a classic

I'm not sure how you two did it, but man did you ever make the sound better than the original. This is actually my favorite song and level of S&K. Awesome job.

Ah! I was not aware this was your favorite track from Sonic & Knuckles. Then I'm definitely glad John Weeks and I got it done so well. :) Great to hear that you loved this song and, as always, thank you very much for the great review!


The original was good, but this version is way better! Nice Job!

Wow! Thank you very much! ^_^ I find that so much of the music in the Sonic games is hard to live up to when it comes to remakes. Great to hear how much you enjoyed this track and thank you very much for the excellent review! 'Tis greatly appreciated. :)
