Back on track and rolling right along, or should I say hovering, we've got newcomer Rozovian, who's been active on our forums and deserves serious props for providing quality feedback on the WIP forums as well as reviews for posted mixes. Which reminds me, that's an excellent segue into mentioning OA's "give the gift of reviews" thread, which encourages EVERYONE - small people, large people, mixers, listeners, people with 11 fingers, AND phenylketonurics alike to REVIEW REMIXES. And also provide WIP feedback. It seems a little silly asking people to review free music, but for every 500 downloaders of a given track we only get a couple peeps willing to share their thoughts. If you've been lurking in the darkness, downloading mix after mix, thinking that no one wants to hear what you have to say, or that you're somehow not qualified, come join us. When it comes to music, most opinions are subjective, constructive criticism is always awesome, but even just a short message saying thanks can really make creating, submitting, & posting mixes more gratifying for everyone involved. We like it when you gratify us.
Speaking of gratification, always nice to see some F-Zero coverage - game really did have a classic OST. Rozovian writes:
"This was a track I've had on my mind for a while, and had worked out the melodies months before inspiration struck. When it did I pieced the whole thing together in a couple of days. Then it took me a lot of tweaks and exports (mostly exports), and then... NO (resub) x3. And a few days of tweaks alter, here it is. Again. I got some crucial feedback on the #ocrwip channel, Tensei-San deserves a particular mention in the submission letter, as do the Js that either judged it or helped me out beforer I submitted it. For anyone needing help, music critique, or general feedback, use the channel."
The ReMixer employs a strong sub bass and heavy kick/snare with shimmering, filtered textures on top, and short-release synth leads panned left that sound like they're running through a cabinet sim or similar DSP. There's a also sparkling piano and... a key change(!), which you don't hear too often in this type of setting. Works well, which given the genre I actually wouldn't have expected. Overall the production is solid and the sounds used are creative & fairly unique, while the arrangement - while it could have been a little more expansive and incorporated a bridge or more elaborate solo - definitely keeps the tempo pumping and the pulse pounding. I think the mix captures the sense of speed and has a general "racing" vibe, maintaining what the original (and other tracks from the game) did so well. It's fitting that Rozovian went back and forth with a resub and further refinements based on both WIP and panel feedback, since he's active & encouraging on/of the WIP boards himself, and with this mix you can hear the result - and benefits - of that process. If Kansas (quoting the King James) were correct, and all we are is dust in the wind, then the mix title suggests we're basically eating ourselves, which sounds dirty and... difficult. At any rate, great debut from another new artist - let Rozovian know what you think, then review some other mixes while you're at it and give the gift of reviews.
