Damn, that bass line is so tight.  Really into this one.

Are you Shadow the Hedgehog? Because you've clearly mastered the art of chaos control.
(Seriously though, your bunny tracks are always the best!)

This is crazy funky. The bass is huge. Very cool track, would totally work in a videgame.

Not that I would do it, but could you please give me the contact info of your Satanic Representative™ who obviously gave you your musical genius and youthful good looks?  I'm not interested in making a deal, but I just kind of want to see what the terms are.  I also heard that you get a gift certificate for sitting through the presentation.

Ever thought about livestreaming a production session?  I would pay $ to watch, even though I wouldn't understand.

SYTRUS DRINK

Oh also, this song is really nice, I really get the Sonic vibe, and the snare is 100% Michael Jackson Dangerous Era, which is also cute because he had a Sonic connection.

You can find him at the discotheque

I have thought about livestreaming! But I'm dubious of the actual interest in listening to me make FM patches, or brute force my way through songs... it's probably really hard for other people to listen to. I'm actually not a very good musician at all! But maybe I'll make some stuff for you, and you can tell me what you think.

I was totally going for the Sonic vibe! For this song, I took the original drum samples and modeled them as closely as possible, since they were samples it was a bit tricky, and required a lot of filter work (I used 2 Sytrus patches to get enough filter bands, although I probably could have just used Fruity Love Philter) with some 8-bit decimation, but to my ears it sounds very close considering! Then I was able to extract the instrument data from the game (Genesis uses a Yamaha YM2612 chip, which is a reduced version of the YM21280 found in the DX7 which Sytrus is loosely based on. Sytrus can import DX7 sysex data and approximate the patch.) I originally made a bass patch by ear, it was kind of close, like 90% there after a lot of fiddling. But after finding some obscure (and no longer readily available) conversion programs, I got all of the original Genesis patches into Sytrus in a matter of seconds. Essentially the byzantine process was extracting the compressed music data from .vgz to .vgm. Then extracting the instruments to .tfi, then converting to .opm and finally to .syx. After that, the patches sound about 98% there, but that's good enough for me. I tweaked them a bit, shortened their sustains to sound punchier and gave them some chorus to widen the sound.

I've long known about Jackson's involvement with Sonic, and love of Sega. Oddly I was just thinking about it recently because I was reminiscing about Space Channel 5 on the Dreamcast, and the court battle that Lady Miss Kier had with Sega for using her likeness for the "Ulala" character. Personally I think she got a bad wrap (they claimed the developers never heard of her before development yet were also at the same time "personal experts with nightclub disco and music events"... really? uh... ok... what planet where they living on during the early 90s where Groove is in the Heart was not playing at least 10 times a night at the disco? After they released in Japan, they even called her to use her likeness in other markets (wait, didn't they claim not to know who she was?), which tipped her off to the game, and resulted in a lawsuit. She ended up losing, and having to pay over half a million in legal fees, which just tells me Sega just had expensive lawyers to get away with it. The courts ruled that the work was transformative enough, and made video game precedent. At the time I remember thinking she was supposed to be a part of the game, which in my mind is not transformative enough. Ulala was even Kier's catch phrase! That's like making a character that has one sparkle glove called "Shamone" that moonwalks everywhere.

Now that I actually work on games for a living, the thought crossed my mind that I could make the Deee-Lite game that never was! But I'm afraid of those Sega lawyers...

Anywho, super long story short Jackson liked the SC5 demo so much he requested to make an appearance in the game and the sequel! But he got to be "Space Michael", not "Shamone".... lol. This is what I think about late at night.

Groovy!!!

Aww man this really makes me wish I had my genesis still.  That bassline is awesome.  The bends are just pure ear candy.  If you're not an excellent musician (which i disagree) then you be an excellent sound sculptor cuz dayumn!  Awesome sauce!

You can still get one! Sound sculptor sounds more apt!
