Coming to MAGFest in January?? We sure hope you are!! In addition to TONS (not a hyperbole - if you added them all up, it'd literally weigh tons) of VGM bands, Yuzo Koshiro, Kinuyo Yamashita, Chris Huelsbeck and MORE (!!), not only will OC ReMix be there w/ our customary panel, but it will mark the stage debut of OverClocked University, OCR's official live band!! Previously performing as "OCR Live" during our panel intros, the guys & gals are takin' it to the stage for a standalone performance that should rock more than a few socks - catch 'em on Friday, Jan. 4th @ 4:00PM and get schooled!!
BUT DON'T JUST TAKE *OUR* WORD FOR IT... I'm happy to be posting their first OFFICIAL ReMix under the OCRU moniker, a sweet rock jam arrangement from DKC, to give you but a taste of their many delicious flavors - Stevo writes:
"I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan, as I've admitted to on many occasions. They're the primary influence for the style of this track, though it is also influenced by a number of post-rock and alt-rock folks. This is the second arrangement I've made for OverClocked University, and it's by far one of the strongest, I feel. Some amazing interplay between the lead guitar (Andrew) and violin (Amy), harmonizing at times and at others going off in different directions. The bridge is from 'Life in the Mines' from DKC, a nice change from the mellow Aquatic Ambiance that makes up the rest of the song. Deia does a great job holding things steady on the bass, and I hold the rhythmic fort down by playing the guitar arps through most of the song."
Great stuff, especially those lead harmonies - while watching Andrew, Stevo, Amy & Deia perform at conventions like Otakon, PAX, and MAG has been amazing, the challenging acoustics and last-minute realities of setting up for live music in panel rooms hasn't let them shine quite like this. While the incorporation of more live components still makes this a little rougher than most of their individual mixes, there's an immediacy to the production & energy between musicians that doesn't tend to occur with solo/sequenced arrangements. From the supple-but-firm synth pad swells on the intro to the call-and-answer power-shreddage bromance at 2'34", it's a concise, focused mix that plays to the strengths of having live performers working together & develops nicely to a heavier climax. Great stuff, legendary source tune, and really cool to see OCRU performing at MAG 2013 - I'm personally looking forward to it, and we hope to see you there!
