He went into great detail to speak about how everything began and why he loves Sonic so much and what tracks he likes the most.

“The best Sonic game is definitely the OG Sonic the Hedgehog. That’s the game that started it all for me. That’s the game I was most obsessed with, and I just remember putting it in the Genesis console and just rocking out. My favorite song from Sonic the Hedgehog is definitely Stardust Speedway [from Sonic CD]. That’s why I remixed it: when I hear it, it brings me back to when I was a kid playing the game.”
