Press release:
SEATTLE – September 9, 2017 – Materia Collective is thrilled to release Sonic BeATS, a collection of music by artist Funk Fiction written for the highly-regarded Sonic: Before the Sequel and Sonic: After the Sequel tribute games. Just in time to celebrate the18th birthday of the SEGA Dreamcast (released 9/9/99) and the classic Sonic the Hedgehog renaissance ushered in by Sonic Mania, the time was right to get these amazingly funky electronic pop soundtracks into the hands of fans for the first time. Sonic BeATS is available today:

Sonic BeATS on Bandcamp
Sonic BeATS on iTunes
Sonic BeATS on Spotify

The Sonic BTS and ATS soundtracks are widely praised as being one of the best parts of the games, with Sonic series composer Jun Senoue himself decreeing the albums as “excellent work” filled with “lots of catchy tracks.” Funk Fiction states his favorite game in the Sonic series “has always been Sonic the Hedgehog 3,” as he feels it “pushed the envelope with one foot in the familiar Sonic sound established in the first two games and another foot in the uncharted territory of complex yet catchy Michael Jackson vibes.” “In the same philosophy of evolution from the first two Sonic games towards the third, I wanted to apply the same maturation for Sonic BTS and ATS,” comments Funk Fiction. “This time, integrating external influences such as Yuzo Koshiro’s Streets of Rage, the French Touch flavor of early Daft

Punk’s Homework & Discovery, and the rich, gooey, and supremely funky essence of Jamiroquai. This is the result of what you hear in Sonic BeATS.” Sonic: Before the Sequel (2012) and Sonic: After the Sequel (2013) achieved over 300,000 tracked downloads with the soundtracks in particular earning cult status on SoundCloud and YouTube, but the music hasn’t been made available for download anywhere until now. This music played a vital role in developing Funk Fiction’s musical identity, essentially launching his career. It’s with that idea in mind that he and Materia Collective have decided to give Sonic BeATS the official release it deserves, which also features brilliant artwork by Andy Tunstall.

About Funk Fiction
Also known as Funk Fiction, Pejman Roozbeh materialized by the coastal waters and urban sprawl of Los Angeles. As a child of the ’90s, he was influenced by the beginnings of the 16-bit era, Nicktoons, and the advent of electronica. Despite being a funkster at heart, he’s also adept at dissolving genres – blurring the lines between disco, R&B, ambient, and house. Funk Fiction’s projects cover diverse videogame genres: composing for indie games such the retro Sonic BTS/ATS, Spark: The Electric Jester, and currently the modern ambient puzzler Epitasis, along with the upcoming action/adventure game Breeze in the Clouds. Blessed with celestial waves from interstellar space, he embodies funk so great it comes from fiction.
