OCR00061 - F-Zero 'Mute Radiology'
Posted 20 June 2005 - 03:04 PM
The intro is the best part. It really has an awesome beat. The main body of the song is somewhat dull, but the end is great. I love the channel switching. It's kind of hard to notice without headphones. Some time ago, I burnt this song to CD and was listening to it with my walkman for the first time with the volume cranked up all the way. That one part (I think it's a 2:12) scared the crap outta me! It's a nice chage from your standard melody-harmony-base-beat remix, and I give it a 10/10.

That aside, this is definitely not your run-of-the mill techno. It starts out strong, droops a bit in the middle, but picks up the slack at the end. Though disorienting, the various sleight-of-ear tricks are quite enjoyable, and add the unique twist evey piece of OCR techno needs, what with all the existing techno on this site.
Yeah, I'm a lazy-ass.

Alas, I mostly listen to remixes at work, through headphones, so this won't be going on my permanent playlist...

I have headphones and it actually doesn’t bother me, sounds great either way.

I love the whole thing, but a Headphone user, 2:05-2:16 could use a little "Normalization"
Other than that, love it.

I like the intro. I didn't like the main melody synth for awhile, but listening just now it felt fine. I even like the craziness of the discord section, except its exit seems kind of random (weird panning action), making it seem like he didn't finish that part all the way. Me of course finding out about this site quite early on, before the exodus. So I was used to this kind of music.

I'm not trying to play webmaster's pet here, but djpretzel is one of my favorite contributors to this site, not just based on the obvious facts that he created and is in charge of it, but the stuff he submits is so musically innovative, like he tries new and different approaches to everything every time he sits down to create. It's very artistic and refreshing.

The beef of the source, entering at 1:33, is played in a sort of off-octave manner (not distinctly higher or lower than normal), ditching the original's grandiose, prize-money-is-at-stake feel for something more along the lines of "Captain Falcon's joyride." He's groovin' to the electronica on his hovercar's stereo, leaping off a cliff/ramp when he gets a hilarious case of Radio Treble Syndrome at 2:08 and crashing back on track at 2:14. Then he crosses the finish line - alone - beating his previous time trial ghosts that come whizzing past a second or two later.

It's a sortof weird sonic stew, but there's some nutrition to be had here.

Somehow it also sounds really complex... layered?... I'm not sure how to place the way the sounds seem to interact. I just like it.

Oh gosh I remember this from my younger years, when I only looked at ReMixes from songs that I already knew the source tune from! How weird is that?
I didn't really like it when I was a dumb kid, but I can definitely appreciate it now. I haven't tried the headphones experience yet, but as I'm listening to it now the crazy syncopation is really interesting, never gets old. The actual Mute City melody seems secondary in whatever weird experience this song is trying to make, but that's sort of okay. I think ReMixes should be 'allowed' to take the iconic parts of their source material and do what they want with them, even if it means making them a smaller part of the new song. Even though this song seems to deal primarily with messing with the first few chords of the original, it's still something that is inherently linked to Mute City.
Anyway I don't know what I'm talking about but I like this song. Except for that ending > like okay thanks for stopping by bye?? you left your coat here!??
