We gave plugs to some of Sonic Boom’s debut music earlier, and one of the more requested songs so far has easily been the Classic Remix of “Escape from the City” that will be used in Sonic Generations without any of the audience voices.
We hear you loud and clear. While the recent dissection of the demo yielded its own musical results, Escape from the City was missing from the included files.
But Sonic Retro has its ways…
And in this case, it was as simple as just catching a Summer of Sonic livestream and recording a CLEAN version of the song.
Points to how the autotuning was used (Sonic 3 fans should pick up on it immediately) and a small techno line at the end just because it references the original (and, in my opinion, better) version of the song in the Dreamcast’s Sonic Adventure 2: The Trial, where the vocals were replaced with an energetic guitar lead.
Opinion injection and bitter old man rambling aside, I bet you all want that song. So, I’ll shut up and offer this tasty link for your downloadable consumption.
