A new album from the re-arrangement masters, OverClocked Remix, has just hit the interwebs. There’s a special reason to run out and get this one, because this latest release focuses on the past 25 years of Sonic the Hedgehog. Just in time for the blue blur’s birthday!

Have you been pining for some new Sonic-themed remixes lately? Well, OverClocked Remix’s latest album release could be either a blessing or a curse – the legendary music group pushed out a new LP titled ‘& Knuckles’ on April 1. It’s a real album, too.

After much anticipation, OverClocked Remix has released their latest collaborative work in the form of their 45th album, if only in hopes of finally putting the argument over “which soundtrack is the better one” to rest. And how did they plan on doing that?
By going all out and paying tribute to both American and Japanese scores of Sonic CD in the only way they know how.
Lo and behold, Temporal Duality: A Sonic CD ReMix Album is at long last available for public downloading! The three disc album covers the hedgehog’s epic journey across the time crossed zones of the Little Planet in both musical flavours, so whether you’re a fan of the Ogata/Hataya flare or in the mood for some Nilsen, Young, and Sterling, there is a little something for everybody in this fully rearranged soundtrack.
You can nab the album yourself via the Temporal Duality webpage! Check out the history behind the project, read up on each artist’s thoughts behind their own track, and while you’re at it, nab the entirety of OCRemix’s Sonic themed albums (available on the site)!
That being said, this release kind of puts me in the mood for a music marathon of sorts. With Sound of Speed – Sonic the Hedgehog, Hedgehog Heaven – Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Project Chaos – Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, and now Temporal Duality – Sonic CD, OverClocked Remix has just about chronicled the complete 16bit saga of the Sonic the Hedgehog series… I can’t help but wonder what entry they will cover next in down the line.
On the side, I would also recommend nabbing tunes from the OCR forum’s Blue Bomber Blue Blur Collision Competition, if you’re in the mood for some Sonic and Mega Man music crossover goodness!

OverClocked Remix: Temporal Duality: A Sonic CD ReMix Album
20 years ago today, Sonic CD hit the shelves of North America, following its Japanese release two months prior. The hit title that premiered recurring rival and robotic doppelganger Metal Sonic, alongside hammer-wielding valkyrie and blue believer
Princess Sally Amy Rose, has been celebrated all around the community this year, predominantly through the Metal Sonic-themed Summer of Sonic convention featuring character designer Kazuyuki Hoshino. However, another Sonic CD tribute was in the works by way of the musical community at OverClocked Remix.
Seven months ago, the folks at OCRemix formally unveiled their 45th tribute album project, following the likes of Hedgehog Heaven, Project Chaos, and Sound of Speed, penned under the name TEMPORAL DUALITY: A Sonic CD ReMix Album.
Founded by Rexy and led by SuperiorX, the album pays tribute to both American and Japanese soundtracks of the game, with the talented team behind the album rearranging the works of Naofumi Hataya, Masafumi Ogata, David J. Young, Mark “Sterling” Crew, and Spencer Nilsen!
Now with the album’s official trailer out, it’s only a matter of time before its release hits! Stay tuned!
If you’re interested in other OCRemix projects, the community recently released the Capcom-supported For Everlasting Peace: 25 Years of Mega Man, which you can purchase on iTunes and Amazon, as well as pre-order a physical copy. Highly recommended if you’re a fan of the other little boy blue!
Get it? Ages? Time travel? SEGA in reverse? …aw forget it, you’re no fun.
TEMPORAL DUALITY: A Sonic CD ReMix Album is set to release at some point this year, and will feature rearrangements of both American and Japanese soundtracks by some of OCRemix’s best! Fans of either Spencer Nilson’s score, or that of Naofumi Hataya and Masafumi Ogata, have every reason to look forward to this album once it hits online servers! Familiar OCR names such as Amphibious, Rexy (who contributed some excellent sounds to our last album), DiGi Valentine, and WillRock are taking part in this, so prepare your bodies! Do so in advance by checking out the preview!
Special thanks to TRiPPY for the tip!

The Sonic 2 Remix Project recently released their Sonic the Hedgehog 2 remix album, “Hedgehog Heaven”. The group, made up of members of remix site Overclocked ReMix, worked on the album for over a year and a half.
The final album comprises 21 tracks from 18 artists coming to just over 75 minutes. It contains remixes of every piece of music in Sonic 2. The album is available to download for free in MP3 format from the Sonic 2 Remix Project site, but they ask that you use BitTorrent instead to save OCReMix’s bandwidth.
