I'm writing this live from PAX 2009, where we're getting ready for our panel. We met up with Stemage and Dan yesterday for some TMNT-bus photo ops, checked out the Dream Build Play 2009 booth where Kaleidoscope (soundtrack by AnSo) was featured, and watched Larry eat "simmered tripe" @ Maneki. Good times all around, though in the meantime the site's been teetering on the edge of posting ReMix #1900, and now is finally the time. We'll be updating the main site torrent tomorrow, but in the meantime Beatdrop's here with some truly hot Vectorman action.
"I present to you OCR's very first Vectorman remix. It's pretty much the only thing musically creative that I've been able to accomplish since I released 'Revolution', so you should all feel very, particularly lucky. Needless to say, I've been wanting to do this song for quite a long time, but didn't come up with a good arrangement until now. I get the feeling that I say that a lot, but that doesn't change the relevancy!
Anyway, herein lies a humongous side-chained bassline, fat beats, some weird distorted pseudo-synthetic sounds, sweeping leads, Attention Deficit Disorder transitions, and more of the fun and games that everyone has come to expect from me. I altered some of the notation of the original song because I couldn't seem to get "Show Me Love" by Robin S. out of my head while working on this. In fact, I was really tempted to find an acapella and turn it into a mash-up, but I'm pretty sure that would be simultaneously obnoxious and unlawful. And that's all I've got to say about that."
Merriam-Webster says that a vector is "a quantity that has magnitude and direction and that is commonly represented by a directed line segment whose length represents the magnitude and whose orientation in space represents the direction." Can you imagine a MAN having such powers?!? Neither can I, really, but Sega did what Nintendidn't and published BlueSky's platformer with its very green & very spherical protagonist back in 1995. It had some good tunes by Jon Holland that Dain's done Great Justice here with a hard-hitting, aggressive electronica mix. What, you were expecting fluffy bunnies and ambient string pads? C'mon, this is Beatdrop; there's of course meaty beats, in-your-face synths, and some really slick use of distortion for a galvanized, electrified sound. Fans of Dain, Vectorman, electronica, and "awesome" should all be very, very happy. We've gotta get rolling to our panel, but whether you're familiar with the game or not, you need to experience 'Overflow' yourself.
