FAIRFAX, VA--OverClocked ReMix, in association with NiGHTSintoDreams.Com, today released its 26th arrangement album, NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming. This album, directed by OverClocked ReMixer and staff member Stevo "Level 99" Bortz, features 32 musicians creating 25 arrangements and two bonus tracks from Sega's 1996 game NiGHTS into dreams..., released exactly 15 years ago today on the Sega Saturn. It also features numerous pieces of artwork by a dedicated group of fans, intended to compliment the music and showcase the creativity and diversity of the original game. The new album represents the first Sega Saturn title to receive an OC ReMix album. NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming is available for free download at http://lucid.ocremix.org.

The album was produced to help promote the music of NiGHTS into dreams..., was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by SEGA or Sonic Team; all original compositions and characters are copyright their respective owners.

"To me, NiGHTS into dreams... defines what the essence of the Sega of old was: creative, original, adventurous, and memorable. The music was the most memorable part of the game for me: I've been listening to the soundtrack for 15 years now. Despite being a cult classic, NiGHTS has not received its due attention over the years. Two years ago, I started this album, hoping to pay respect to the music, the game, and their creators through art and sound. I couldn't be more proud of the amazing work everyone put into this album, and I hope you all enjoy it!" said director Stevo Bortz.

Ranging a wide variety of genres, images, and dreamscapes, the album also features the recurring theme of the NiGHTS musical motif throughout the album, as well as a song with vocals contributed from thirty NiGHTS fans.

Lucid Dreaming will also be the first OC ReMix album heard by both the game's creators and its lead composer, thanks to associate producers Lynne "TRiPPY" Triplett and Niyazi "DiGi Valentine" Sonmez, creators of the NiGHTS fansite NiGHTSintoDreams.Com.

"One of the most surreal things to happen was the opportunity to give the completed album to two of the game's original creators. At this year's Summer of Sonic convention, NiGHTS creators Yuji Naka and Takashi Iizuka each received a hand-delivered copy of Lucid Dreaming," said Bortz. "Iizuka was so excited when he was told what it was that he asked for additional copies to give to the game's lead composer, Tomoko Sasaki. Having this album in the hands of those responsible for the game's creation is a feat I never thought would happen, and shows that the process has come full circle: the fans are giving back to the creators."
