OCR00329 - Radical Dreamers 'Rêve d'ordinateur'

Radical Dreamers 'Reve D'Ordinateur'

Hmm, not overly fond of this mix, just not digging the style overall. I don't even know what style this is... Samples from The Matrix, (I'm not fond of movie samples in music). Altogether I consider it an interesting mix, lots of weird/strange samples and stuff going on, the overlying melody that's there is mostly normal and still quite good in my opinion.

Check it out, along with the rest of the Far Promise flood of Apr 21st. Collect the whole set!

Well then, time for me to review the first song so far that isn't new. I'm pickin' this song because it's definately one of my all time favorites, just because it's so...different. So damn original. So FRICKEN COOL DAMNIT.

First things first, what the hell does Reve d'ordinateur mean?! I mean, I've ALWAYS wondered! But right there, just LOOKING AT THE NAME OF THE SONG, you're like, "Damn...this is pimp..." and THEN when you open up your Winamp, or your Windows Media Player, or your RealPlayer, or WHATEVER you MP3 player of choice is, and open this little baby, holy hell are you in for a surprise!!

It opens with a cool little sample that leads up a damn funky bass part. After this the kicks and and the reverse kicks come in, which makes it even MORE cool, with some synthy string type thing goin' on in the background, with little water droplet soundin' things in the beat that sound extra cool. Then...comes my favorite part...IT ALL STOPS. Pow. Silence. You're like, "Whoa, what just happened" then outta no where it sneaks up with a sample from the Matrix, "Ever have that feeling that you're awake, but still dreaming?" followed by a little piano solo thing. After that it's joined by some stings to make a nice short little orchestral part. After all this, at 1:20, then he reconstructs the beat and bass line on top of it all again! Then, at 1:28, KARPOW! It all hits you, full force crazy, funky, spiffy cool! After all this it climaxes again after the sample is played again at 2:23, and then there's a general falling action and then it it's over with the same little piano solo from 0:56.

And here's my final thought!

This song is a perfect mix of nice orchestration, nice beats, and a whole lotta creativity! +200 cool points! This is top of the lines boys and berries, you owe yourself a listen!

So, it's 1:40 AM on a Tuesday morning here in NYC, and I'm listening to Zertatul's Reve D'Ordinateur.

On a whim, I decide to check out the reviews this song got and notice this song recieved no love. 2 reviews? One that wasn't to keen on it?

I'll admit, it took me a listen or two. But once I "got it", boy did I get it. This isn't just a good ReMix, the is a good song, period. This is everything I like about music rolled into a ball of sweet musical wonderful.

It starts off with this amazingly funky techno beat which will eventually mesh extremely well with the beatiful "Far Promise" piano playing... but not before a very well placed and excellent use of "Matrix" quote.

The violins, which pop in and out of the mix carry the mood wonderfully and the whole song comes together as an incredible mood piece, something which will leave you with a melancholy smile on your face.

This is music at it's best. This comes with my highest recommendation possible.

Je veux jamais me réveiller...

Heh, I'm here bored in SUNY Binghamton, so I came to look at good remixes that got little reviews, and here I come to Reve d'Ordinateur.

The beginning had a nice beat to it, but the interesting part is the vocal sample at 0'52. Then comes in the sweet piano solo! I just love listening to this piano, it gives a nice spin on melody of the original, "Far Promise." While I think the arrangement for the techno beat could've been better, but all in all, this was done pretty well and I'm surprised it didn't get more love.

Cynic?

This is a great remix of Far Promise by Zeratul. the use of the Matrix clip takes you 180 degrees. I love it. the Intro kind of reminds me of the Cynic Project. Another great Music group that I suggest any fan of this song looks into.

This is another overlooked Radical Dreamers mix, with a lot of personalization added. Great synths, beats, and plenty of additional sections make this a creative and interesting take on a highly mixed song.
The piano compling near the end that obscured the main melody is fantastic and what really made the song for me.
The movie quotes are sparsely used (as they should be) and relevant (as they especially should be), and actually add rather than detract. It seems most mixes that throw in quotes are just trying to kill some time, but in this case it works well.

Recommended.

I'm still not sure what I really think about this mix. I'm generally not a fan of spoken quotations inserted into any song, but it sounds ok here, although I don't think they really add anything. The background sounds a little too 'busy' as well, almost like some of it's just random.

However, it's one of the more original Radical Dreamers mixes, and I still really like listening to it. The originality is probably the main highlight of the song. KF

Personally, I don't care for this mix, but there's a lot going for it, and with the percussion/sound effects it can be very catchy. The mix feels very short, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it seems almost too short to me. There is also very little done to the source melody. The soundscape it's in is cool, but it feels to built up around rather than with, if that makes sense. Good stuff, just not to my liking.
