Voices of the Lifestream was sorta like "Xmas in September" from an OverClocked ReMix perspective; the torrent's done over 70 terabytes since the 4-disc album was released, and it featured so many great tracks that, as with Mazedude's American Album, we'll probably still be seeing tracks from it pop up on OCR proper well into 2008. So mote it be. Project Director Andrew Aversa writes:
"This mix was a pleasant surprise from Tweek, as it came towards the end of the project lifespan after the source tune was abandoned by another remixer. The tempo and mix of acoustic and electronic textures really gives this a wintry feel, much like sephfire's recent 'Snowfall on Forbidden Lands' mix. Great stuff."
This mix of Buried in Snow is all the more appropriate given our wintry holiday setting. While Bing Crosby's elusive White Christmas seems to be fairly rare here in the metro-DC area, I imagine some of you, somewhere out there, are indeed currently experiencing a frozen landscape... if you aren't literally buried in snow, which would kinda suck. Andy said it best; this is a chilly ambient soundscape that resembles sephfire's recent mix, and other arrangements that take the listener over icy peaks and through treacherous sub-zero Kelvin caves in search of a yule log or SOMETHING with which to heat one's freezing posterior. In a good way. Tweek definitely tweaked *himself* for this one, dialing back the edge and substituting in two scoops of ambient exploration. There are still beats here, to be sure, but this one ain't dancin' material, unless it's some sort of artistical ice skatin' thingamajig. Gated synth features heavily here, not unlike Shariq's MP3:C mix that we just posted, and the slicing in this case really creates a lot of faster, nested rhythms that lend a swagger and sway to the otherwise deliberate pacing. This isn't the type of "joyous celebration" tunage that you might associate with a holiday that involves an obese chimney-fairing man giving kids products pro bono, but it's still very wintry, so there's an Xmas connection somewhere in there. More importantly, it's more great work from Tweek, in style less aggressive but still every bit as nuanced and compelling as the rest of his oeuvre.
