Well, Anna and I are off to Vegas in a few hours, and we're planning on meeting up with Jordan & Jade at some point while we're there. Beyond that coincidence, I think it's appropriate that Jordan's mix be released as OCR01800, a nice round number, since the story behind it represents the best of what this community's all about. We've mentioned Shariq's Reserve Tank: VARIAtions get-well album before, but it was doubly cool to see bLiNd get better and end up contributing his own track. On top of that, it was great to see J&J together and enjoying MAG as sort of a "VGM honeymoon" - I gave 'em a hard time about it during the OCR panel, but I actually think it's really cool.

"It was great meeting you for the first time at MAGFest 7 as well as all the other people in the OC movement. I dont want to make a list because I know i will leave someone out but I just want to say all you folk are truly genuine amazing people. I made new friends and met old ones face to face and Jade and I truly had a ball. We considered it our honeymoon, even though it doesn't qualify as one, it fit our situation, how we met, who we are, and we didnt want to leave. That leads up to this remix, I originally dedicated it to my wife Jade, who found me through OCR (djp makes dreams come true hehe) since she has loved me from the beginning and helped me through my colitis illness and actually told me to make this remix for the project that was made for me. Go download all them tracks if you haven't.
So I want to thank darkesword as well for making the project. This is considered the bonus track! Its also brinstar (the green area) which was a popular choice for the project. I focused intensely on sound design, there are several movements, its a decent length, I used my jp-8080 for the middle section, and did some cool things to samus' speed booster sound! I changed the chord progressions to make it more uplifting as well. Its been considered my best up to now. BTW I did a dj set at magfest with this track in the middle, I believe liontamer got some footage but it featured all my new remixes, most unheard by the community. So they will roll in this year one by one, with this being the first. Thanks to everyone in the community for lifting my spirits, all the people I met at magfest, and of course my lovely wife Jade. Hope you enjoy the track!"
I do in fact make dreams come true. I've been told this many times. At least once, at any rate. As awesome as it is that Jade & Jordan found each other through OCR, it's equally awesome that they got married in 2008, and of course the year also saw Jill & Andy's announcement as well as Anna & me. Top THAT, 2009! From a significant, Facebook status-changing relationship angle, '09 may not be able to deliver, but musically - given everything else PLUS Jordan's renewed activity - it should be a humdinger. This mix shouldn't need much selling, but I'll throw in that it's some of Jordan's best work to date, elevates his audio production skills to yet another level, and bodes very well for the rest of the year. We're still working on getting MAG video edited in a format that makes sense, but keep an eye out for clips from Jordan's DJ set, and keep an ear out for more mixes. In the meantime, enjoy this very sweetly-dedicated, stellar trance Super Metroid mix!
