January 21, 2022 - Music label Firaga Records has just released its newest album inspired by everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog, Sonic. With ten funky tracks to jam to, Needlehouse Mania from artist RoBKTA is the perfect soundtrack for Sonic the Hedgehog Fans. Songs featured on the album include “Chemical Apex” from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, “Planet Wisp” from Sonic Colors and “Studiopolis” from Sonic Mania. 


Needlehouse Mania’s artist, RoBTKA, has stated that the album is a tribute to Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary. Taking inspiration from funk, electro and Neo arcade, Needlehouse Mania will have you running around searching for rings and dancing like your quills depend on it. “I think I crafted a worthy successor to my debut album, ‘Club Needlemouse’, while adding new musical identities to more popular motifs from soundtracks of the Blue Blur game library,” states RoBKTA.
