Feat. DiGi Valentine. Hip-Hop Vocal mix of Tidal Tempest (Sonic CD JAP/EU) & Star Light Zone (Sonic 1).

My entry for the first round of The Sonic Zone Remix Competition over at OCR. I had to incorporate Tidal Tempest from Sonic CD (JAP/EU version) and Starlight Zone from Sonic The Hedgehog into one Remix (in one week!!!), so I used the main Tidal Tempest track as a basis for the mix, and blended in Star Light Zone mostly into the hooks. Had a great beat going, and realised some rhymes would really go well with the track, so I recruited my good friend DiGi Valentine to write and record the rap vocals. It turned out to be the best decision for the mix... he KILLED it! I wrote and recorded the lyrics for the chorus and incidental vocals, and yeah, the rest is history. I've never done anything like this track before, so I'm absolutely stoked with how it turned out. As is, it's pretty much finished. I've got a few small additions planned for the track when I sub this to OCR, but yeah, it's finished for now.

Both source tunes from the game originally composed by Naofumi Hataya and Masato Nakamura.

Oh, and here's the lyrics if any of you are interested! Lemme know what you think about the track, and above all, ENJOY!

AkumajoBelmont feat. DiGi Valentine - PANDEMONIUM


This beat is, kinda crazy.
It's a little bit like you, maybe.
We're at opposite ends of this spectrum.
And I'ma tell it like it is and you can watch me tell them


It's a little challenging watching you babbling
Bragging on things that ain't never happening
I'm all for living in a dream realm, bredrin
But the way you act has got me questioning
I mean for real, what's the deal on the surface?
It's like you always tackle me on purpose.
It takes two to tango but I ain't dancing.
You telling mad jokes but I ain't laughing.
Calling this friendship strained
is an understatement that words fail when explained.
It's like I say push, you say pull
Always taking me for a fool
Seriously, we can't even speak
with out you reaching for a subject that's beyond our reach
Please, I heard that tale ten times.
Now it's time to tell mine
Pandemonium; I call it pandemonium.


You live in Wonderland; king on your throne.
Don't think you understand that you're alone.


Within circles of friends you word whirlpools again
And it's hurtful but then it's all about you, in the end.
I never thought I would meet a dreamer
who let go of reality but it seems that I have.
And you ain't got a single toe on the ground
You're too loud for me, and that's watering it down.
Agh, seriously. Just hush the noise
You love the sound of your own voice man.
Pandemonium; I call it pandemonium.


You live in Wonderland; king on your throne.
Don't think you understand that you're alone.
You've fallen far behind; and we've all grown.
You know it's not my kind of pandemonium.


Pandemonium, I call it pandemonium
People like this, there's just no hope for them.
Pandemonium, that's pandemonium
Back and forth, like we're fighting for a podium.
Pandemonium, it's pandemonium
With friends like these who needs enemies trolling them?
Uh yeah,
Yo, shut it down, we're done here.

Another great remix! It's great to hear how your music has progressed throughout the years. Quite a bit a bit different than the old voxbox tunes you used to write years ago, haha. Keep hammerin them out bro, I look forward to each and every new mix!

AkumajoBelmont responds:

Geez thanks man! Glad you approve!!! :) Yeah, it's very different to what I usually do, but in the process, I think I've come up with probably the best track I've done yet :)
