Primary Game: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo, 1998, N64), music by Koji Kondo

This weekend Gamer's Rhapsody 3 takes place in Minneapolis, Minnesota (Fri Nov. 18th to Sun. Nov. 20th) - we'll have a panel and OceansAndrew will tell you about all the cool things... for EXAMPLE, this bumpin' "Gerudo Valley" EDM ReMix that was featured on Spring Break DJ Set:

"The goal behind the mix was to pair up the classic song with a hard-hitting club anthem style. There are a few club tropes used, but I tried to throw in some surprises as well, and a lot of cool effects. For best results, listen to this loud. :-)"

Gamer's Rhapsody has certainly grown since the first iteration that I attended, steadily multiplying its attendance and featuring some great guests and even a ReMix contest we'll be judging, this year. As for the mix, Luers cops to the tasteful usage of a few tropes, so this will sound a little familiar at parts, but they're tropes for a reason, they tend to work well when done right, and they're done pretty darn right here, plus there are surprises that color outside the lines a bit; I especially dug the dramatic vocalizing that comes through during the intro & some of the harmony/counter-melody parts are sweet, too. A fun, energetic, & accessible treatment of a classic Zelda theme - enjoy, check out Spring Break DJ Set for more, and check out Gamer's Rhapsody this weekend if you're near Minneapolis!

Definitely a little different from the typical Gerudo Valley remix. I like it! Although I think it could've been better if it had a freestyle section instead of staying so close to the source.

Yeah, I also noticed a bit of Bolero of Fire in the intro :D Neat cameo! As for the mix itself, when I heard it for the first time, I wasn't completly sold on the concept of a hard-hitting EDM arrangement, but I dig it a lot now. I just can't resist tapping my toes ;) Gotta love the section @1:57 most of all, though - dat groove is just rad. And the overall work is damn catchy - mad props to OCU and OA!

Bolero of Fire is appropriate. :D Because it was named "Time Crush", I was looking for the Song of Time at first.

I like the moment at 2:10-2:12. My favourite section is from 2:28 to 2:43. :) Not sure what's going on there but I quite like it.

.....Why has no one reviewed yet?

Is it because it was on the Spring Break album?

Is that...Bolero of Fire at the beginning there?

Overall, this is gold.
