Internet Superstar's Martin Sargent interviews djpretzel!

Hey guys, Martin Sargent (The Screen Savers, Unscrewed with Martin Sargent) just released the latest episode of Internet Superstar, episode #60, interviewing djpretzel.

Martin & djp discussed:
  • OC ReMix's promotion of game music as an art form;
  • Whether game music stacks up to other forms of music in entertainment;
  • The many styles of ReMixes available at OCR;
  • Game composers submitting music to the site; and
  • OC ReMixers entering the industry as professional composers and sound designers.
The show's only about 10 minutes long and a great intro to OCR for anyone who likes video game music, so pass it along. Thanks!



Thanks to Martin for his ReMix selections and captions within the episode. Here's a breakdown of what was played, as well as the folks djpretzel mentioned within the episode:

They're synced, but low quality recording cuts out a lot of frames. Regardless, it's good to see the site getting more attention.

I bet he's wearing pink bunny slippers during this recording.

Nice. Enjoyed that interview. Capcom's titles for SF are getting extra long indeed, Dave.

Great interview. I just felt some of the example remixes (oops, I mean ReMixes) weren't the best ones to use when exposing the site those that are unfamiliar with this place.

I mean, seriously, no rockin' Sixto example? For shame.

wow! this site.

first i dont know if there a thread like this so...

i just wanted to say that after i watched the internet superstar interveiw of DJpretzel, i am so happy and amazed on how much this site has changed/improved and is still growing i have been coming to this site for years checking out the new music that everyone submits here of all my favorite games and i tell everyone about this site if they like video game music. i am a BIG FAN! of video game music i would listen to midi files of video game songs on random websites but when i found this site it all changed and then it came out with chip tunes and i would listen to songs in its original sound cause they remind me of when i was kid, remembering all the melodies that would get stuck in your head from playing the same game for hours on end. if im not doing that i have like 1000 songs on random in my playlist on my computer of just ocReMix's and try to guess what game it is from, to me its fun and relaxing. im so glad i found this site randomly one day years ago.

thank you for making this site! and i thank everyone who contributes to it if i had music skillz i would ReMix some songs

P.S. i wonder if there are other people out there that like video game music like i do, drop a line and say hi.

Man, I just can't believe none of you ever watched Unscrewed. Just so you know, the set Martin Sergeant is using is green screened. He is not actually filming from a shed.

I'm kind of surprised that djpretzel was chosen in the first place though. Normally he used to only pick really weird/crazy people to interview. This one actually went pretty smoothly without him making fun of djpretzel or the site all that much.
Holy crap you're kidding me right?
