“Sonic & Chill is my love letter to Sonic, Sega, and Sonic fans,” notes Funk Fiction. “The very first melodies I ever hummed were ‘Marble Zone’ and ‘Green Hill Zone,’ and since then Sonic music has played an integral role in shaping my musical identity. In order to reimagine the higher energy sound of the originals into a more chill style, I drew inspiration from Jamiroquai, Sade, Yuzo Koshiro, Michael Jackson, west coast hip-hop, bossa nova, new jack swing, ’80s and ’90s RnB, soul, city pop, acid and smooth jazz, disco and classic house, and ’90s dance. These diverse influences coalesced into an overall sound throughout the album that could be described as ‘HiFi Vapor.’ Sonic & Chill has truly been a passion project and it brings me great joy to present what is my tribute to the legacy of Sonic music and its composers.”

Chill Zone Act 1 (Sonic the Hedgehog 3) Welcome to Station Square (Sonic Adventure) Marble Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog) Green Hill Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog) Comfort Zone (Sonic Mania) Angel Island Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 3) Chemical Plant Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2) Chill Zone Act 2 (Sonic the Hedgehog 2) Oil Ocean Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2) Spring Yard Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog) Press Garden Zone (Sonic Mania) Hydrocity Zone (Sonic Mania) Can You Feel the Sunshine?
