OOF-Y GROOVES

From PHIGHTING! Wiki

"OOF-Y GROOVES" is a track composed by Key After Key. In-game, the track is played as as the map theme of Rocket Arena.

Description

"OOF-Y GROOVES" originated as a high-effort joke, remixing Roblox's old death sound, "uuhhh.wav" (or the "Oof") with a funky twist. However, as the original track began to age, and Roblox's death sound got replaced, this track became an homage to classic Roblox as a whole.

At 0:48 and 1:56, the map begins to go dark, as the "electronicpingshort.wav" takes the melody, building up to the drop. When the drop hits, as the map begins to flash neon lights, the keytar takes the stage, soon to be joined by the Oofs in polyphony. This format was added to the track specifically to sync with the map, similarly to how it did with its original music, Sonic Mania - Metallic Madness Zone Act 2.

Finally, as the track is under 3 minutes, it loops at the end instead of having a conventional ending.
