The ‘Back in Time’ ASR Transformed remix
Let’s kick off the requests for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed. ~ Starting with a song I just know you’ll love, have a listen to ’ Sanctuary Falls - Sky Sanctuary/Back In Time Remix ’ ~ Since I absolutely love mash ups, when I heard this one for the first time (and in an official soundtrack no less) my mind was just blown and I went into all sorts of smiles. I hope it does the same for you. ^u^
Two requests for this one! And for good reason!
I wouldn’t necessarily classify this as a mash-up, as it doesn’t necessarily mash the two songs together—one comfortably leads into the other, which I think is a beautiful setup! I love the mix of this; it has lots of synths and a strong dance feel, typical of most of the Sonic racing games, but it also has strong melodic content and great padding going on. I think the only thing that would impress me more would be if Back In Time was in the same key as Sky Sanctuary. None the less, the transition is really, really smooth—the vocals are absent, but the synth effect is still effective in its place. It carries over all the lovely arpeggios from the original, and Sky Sanctuary takes a nod from the recent Generations remix. It’s a smart move for Back In Time to be used—if I remember correctly, it’s used for a similar pyramid/guardian level in Sonic R, so the two tracks really tie together. Beautiful work and beautiful mixing! I’m quite impressed!
