Having been doing Summer Of Sonic for a while now we’ve begun getting requests from fans -Â both in a professional and a casual respect – if they could appear during the show.
Now that was fine with us, so we arranged a segment this year which we began refering to as the “Showcase” where select members of the community can show off their talents.Â Due to the simularities we’ve placed this as a follow on to the Wrecks Factor and I suspect it will be its replacement after this final year.
You already know one of the items to be shown in the showcase – this is where you’ll find us showing the new Sonic Shorts from Sonic Paradox.Â However there’ll also be more comedy and music, speaking of the latter our first
Zonic (or Ziggy in the real world) came to our attention via the SOS Facebook group and her lyricalisations of classic SEGA Megadrive games tracks – specifically Sonic. Apart from these she also makes her own brand of ambient, electronica based pop and dance with influences from everything from Lady GaGa to Depeche Mode. Regularly appears at a variety of game, anime and manga events and is touring very soon all over the country. She’s even got an EP out on iTunes. There’s an example of her Sonic-related work below.
Whilst we’re here I should probably point out our first featured fan artist has also been added to the guest page. Go ahead and click the link, if you like that sort of thing.
19/6 Update: The second of each are now live on the Guests page in the form of Roareye Black and Syaming-Li – also, please keep your questions to the trio of Naka/Iizuka/Senoue coming in!!!
