  1. I'm literally tingling with excitement.
  2. Amen to that. I really like this; it reminds me a lot of Philip Glass, particularly his orchestration of Aphex Twin's Icct Hedral. Philip Glass... Glass Cage... surely no coincidence.
  3. Ditto. I believe at this point a is traditional. Well done Pixietricks!
  4. hehe sweet! Its so awesome to hear that... I see you joined not too long ago... did VGDJ have any influence on you joining the community at OCR? (just curious!) Yeah, kinda. I figured I was already wasting so much time lurking on the forums following the Wingless/Aurora saga, I might as well sign up and start posting. COMMUNITY +1!
  5. You can even hear the ice in the glass. In my mind's eye, I see Rama sitting in some swanky bar (called Granma's), a cocktail in one hand and a mic in the other... maybe it's just me. Anyway, it's a vast improvement on the sound quality of previous reports, which seemed to be recorded in a garage. So, yeah, I've been listening since Ep.001. I wasn't sure at first if I'd stick with it, but here I am 3 months later, still listening religiously. Aurora and Rayza have some really good chemistry/banter going on, and the interviews and ReMixers' soundbites are pretty fascinating. Thanks for making Mondays less crappy, VGDJ!
  6. Guys... I am seriously impressed. Congratulations to you all on a fine job. I'm not all that familiar with the OST (I always hated the midis and stuck a CD in instead) so I can't judge how well the album works as a collection of remixes (or ReMixes). But that doesn't seem to be the point of the album: it's obviously designed to work as a cohesive whole, and in that respect the project is a resounding success. I'm currently debating whether to stay up and listen to the whole album (it's 11.25 and I have to get up at 6 )... nah, I'll stop after the first disc, I need sleep. I'll be back at the weekend with more comments. For now, I'll just reiterate - this is awesome work. Well done.
  7. Landstalker will always have a special place in my heart because it was the cover story in the first Sega magazine I ever bought, and when I finally got round to playing it (12 years later!) I loved it. Anyway, Shnabubula's mix takes an already fairly unconventional theme in several new and unexpected directions. It's consistently engaging, challenging and surprising - just when you think he's about to settle into a groove, Shnab brings in a new melody, bassline or beat. As for the "sub-par" samples, I didn't have a problem with them. The focus never rests long enough on one element to expose any flaws, and anyway, I get the feeling it's supposed to sound just a little bit lo-fi. Some familiarity with the source material probably helps, as does an open mind and an interest in original, unpredictable, experimental music. Shnabulous (sorry).
