And we're back! I'm now officially hitched - thanks to all for the congrats & best wishes! Anna & I tied the knot this past weekend and our wedding was a diverse cultural amalgam of Jewish, Russian, and American traditions rolled into a beautiful ceremony and a rockin' reception. It's a little ironic that the first mix I'm posting as a married man is titled "No Escape, No Hurry", but don't read too much into that - I'm thrilled & content & looking forward to our future together, especially our honeymoon, which is delayed until late August as she's studying for the Virginia bar.
There's a bit of a story behind this FFX mix from Rozo; I'll skip the details and point you to the request thread and this YouTube video. Short version is that someone on YT suggested a song was next to impossible to mix, and Larry jumped on the chance to have the OCR community prove him wrong :) It's a tricky source, no doubt, but it actually got picked up and turned into a mini-project. Rozovian writes:
"This started out as something more in line with the mood of the source, but since the project seemed to lean in that general direction I gave this a bit of swing and suddenly found myself in completely different mood, and quickly in a different time sig improvising stuff. The source in the intro and some of the drums are what's left of the first version.
Lotta Omnisphere here. And a barely filtered triangle wave. And a fake shaker. :D No key changes or pitch bends tho.
Willrock should get a mention for bringing this thing up in a chat and unintentionally (or so I assume) making me do this, Larry and Zeroboros for starting this whole thing, and The Author and Arcana for making it a project. This whole thing kind'a shows it matters who you are and what your request's story is when you post in Requests."
I'm actually still on a weird schedule from the wedding and running out of steam right now, or I'd say more, but I did want to get us back on track and posting more great music. In this instance, rather than talk about Rozo's mix - which blends his more traditional cool electronica with some jazzy/swing elements quite well - I'll just say how awesome it is that mixes like this can come out of a random comment on a YouTube video. Larry is the omnipresent social media eye-wreathed-in-flame of OCR, but his posting a mix request was just the beginning; that the community picked it up and ran with it is a testament to the talent & artistic cajones y'all possess. Rozo rose to the challenge and came up with something playful, cool, and crisp, and deserves some major kudos for doing so.
