Hydrocity is the result of my first few months of experimenting with Native Instruments KOMPLETE. Inspired by such visionary minds as Joshua Morse, P Villa and Savant, this album has everything from chiptune-influenced electro and dubstep to ambient beats, FM funk and jazz fusion, delightfully blended and compiled into a 40-minute package. The album also features an arrangement of the ever-popular 'Hydrocity Zone' music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and guest appearances by fellow OC ReMix legends Level 99 and WillRock. This is my most concentrated and professional work to date, and I hope you all enjoy it! <3
