This is a song I created not long after the others that just recently got it's chance to shine because of a series of fortunate events that led me to upload it on my laptop. For whatever reason I had a difficult time trying to upload this on my desktop (prior to the virus hitting) and it just didn't happen. But here it is nonetheless.

The name comes from what I imagined the setting to be while I was constructing the sound. It made me think of an old fashioned beat-em-up set in a Gotham-like city, cept this particular stage (if I had to guess I'd say the third of fourth) is a gloomy slum covered by a purple sky with green fumes saturating the humid air. I could see busted street lights and barrels of fire and the stage had a haunting feeling to it.

The sound itself is kind of a dirty funk sound. It has a nice rhythm to it inspired by Sonic's Hydrocity zone and the melodies were inspired by somewhat by Sonic's Rusty Ruin Zone (3D blast genesis). Pokemon Lucky Channel (from Gold and Silver) also helped influence me as I was making it, making this the first song where I had a solid idea of what kind of sound I wanted. It's also the first 8bit I "properly" mastered (although Peach soundfonts don't let you adjust volume) and I realized the importance of editing high and low frequencies. That made me proud and ready to make a new so- "Virus has been detected"....... F***


It has a almost Final Fightish sound if you ever played the game.It sounds good but it also sounds like you have too much treble up.You might could use more bass.But otherwise it's a good song.I'm giving it a 4 for now.
