Unhealthy. Contaminated. Completely, utterly sick. PrototypeRaptor has been knocking it out of the park lately; his take on 'Chemical Plant Zone' stands as a monument to the source, a mix I feel I was somehow waiting for, in one way or another, ever since starting OCR. That was the type of submission where, if it were the only track he had on the site, he'd still be a legit one-hit-wonder, worthy of the praise, ala bazooie. Thing is, he keeps making mix after mix that exhibit depth, versatility, but most recently a relentless pursuit of electronic dirt, grit, rawness, and galvanized malice. A mix title like this makes the DBA/SQL geek in me think of NULL columns, but it's much more about stripped-down, electrified, unmitigated ferocity. Mr. Paulsen writes:
"Here's hoping filthy is on good terms with you guys cause this here's some straight up homecooked nasty - a dubstep remix of the first Zelda's underworld theme. Taking cues from some seriously messed up artists like borgore, level 67 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI_m_de4RLQ), and noisia, I'm hoping that this will make OCR's listeners need to clean up most if not all of their browser cache in fear after it's done. And clean their monitor. and possibly take a shower."
Come now, sir... your metaphor is not unappreciated, but you stretch the limits of plausibility when you propose... basic hygiene. I sometimes overhear the cool kids talking about this "dubstep" business in the cafeteria, but I can never quite lay a finger on the specifics. As with so many sub-genres, I don't really care if this is or isn't a poster child for the style; I dig it, regardless. It reminds me of the tenacity, smell of burnt flesh, and Uncomfortable Pants Feelings™ one gets listening to tefnek's epic OWA ReMix.
I really love the universe we live in, that hopefully OCR helps facilitate, that allows this mix to coexist alongside Neskvartetten's jazz take on the exact same source.
...Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go clean my browser cache, wipe my monitor, and take a shower...

Absolutely *amazing* piece of work, imho. You made Navi not be annoying, and that's saying something!

First off, this.
As for the "dirtiness" of the remix at hand, personally, I find it to be a little over the top. While tefnek's OWA remix had these absolutely badass kick-you-in-the-balls moments, they alternated with cleaner, softer, more "relaxing" parts, while PR's remix is the hard stuff from beginning to end.
Anyway, this is good stuff, but nothing I could listen to over and over again.

So after having listened to quite a bit of the stuff I came back to this song, and I'd say it exemplifies the genre. It is dirty. It is the 0.1% that Lysol cannot clean. It cannot be cleansed by purifying flame. It is filthier than holding excrement and clapping your hands. It is more unclean than Rhapsody in Poo. It is the cup in 2 girls 1 cup. It makes Hexxus from Fern Gully look like Mister Clean.

Needless to say I was relieved it was the music and not my HD's.
Doesn't make the remix any less awesome.

Honestly this is a nightmare come true. I have always wanted to hear a nightmarish mix of a dungeon, where every turn could be your last.
(if this was in Twilight Princess.. oh god that would have been so sweet)
