This here is my rendering of the US version of Bad Future Stardust Speedway. Of course, the feel I was going for this would be an epic showdown between Sonic and Metal Sonic. I wanted to capture that intense battle feeling. However, I was still trying to remember everything I had lost long ago. It’s not perfect, and after hearing it now there’s a lot more I could’ve done with it. A lot of adjustments to have made. I guess maybe I felt rushed to get something out there, as it had been a long time and I was still trying to get back into the groove. It was repetitive and bland. I learned a couple other functions that I had missed in that time though too, so it was another step to recovery. I would also be mildly re-introduced to editing, I added a little whisper voice to practice. It was still perceived very well as it had ranked 6th place for that week and was featured on the front page. It was an honor

If Sonic CD ever somehow got a remake and a shift to 3D this is the kind of music I'd want to hear!

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Aw thanks! That really does mean a lot. I do love going for a psych-up, adrenaline pumping style, which I think would fit a super showdown with a Meral clone

Really Enjoyed this one man , Brings back some nostalgia and has a dope tone and melody keep it up!

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Thanks man. This one was fun.

This sounds relatively similar to a few ParagonX9 songs... and the beat is really nice. The melody does feel a bit to repetitive for my tastes, but it's still an excellent song.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Yeah now that its up i can think of ways to improve it lol. That's how it goes. I do appreciate the review. ParagonX9 is a legend. We been around a while

Another classic Sonic beat done right. I actually just replayed Sonic CD fairly recently and this sounds spot on. Is that you doing the voice over work? I'd love to hear the weird Sonic CD boss theme updated by you. Hopefully Sonic Mania will give you new songs to remix, I'm always thrilled to hear your stuff.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Yeah that voice was me. There's plenty more where that came from. I'm hoping for something new too. Though, I'd been gone nearly six years I'm sure there's plenty of sonic songs i can do from the newer games. I'm super excited about mania. It'll be great.

Thanks for the review. Glad you liked this

Everything was great but you could improve by adding another different drum kit on it and also change the rhythm of the drum every different part to make it less repetitive. and the voice at the end of the song was disturbing...

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

That voice was kinda done last minute. I can always edit a little more. It was loud to begin with so i put it at -6 decibels. Called it good
