  1. Uhh, this is INCREDIBLE. I admittedly haven't kept up with Jorito's full catalog as of late, but this feels like a substantial level up specifically in terms of production. The percussion has so much impact and fluidity, and there's an incredible level of warmth to the organic instrumentation that gels together flawlessly, despite the massive array of instruments involved. Truly stellar work to everyone involved!
  2. Hello OCRemix, After my last submission getting approved (A Scent of Lavender), I decided to submit another song from my album, because reading about the judge's opinion was really interesting for me. I think I'll submit my other songs as well (in two weeks, that's the rule !). Contact Information ReMixer name : Black SeeD Email : Website : https://blackseedbm.bandcamp.com/releases Userid : 37884 Submission Information Game arranged : Final Fantasy 6 Name of arrangement : Espers Song arranged : Final Fantasy VI 6 Terra's Theme - YouTube Comments : Hello again everyone ! This is the second track of my album of remixed video game tracks in an atmospheric black metal way (you can find the whole album here : Black SeeD - Farplane of Memories (2021)). The goal of this track and the album in general was to work with songs on which I felt that I could emphasize melancholic themes with my favorite music genre. For this song, the theme is easily recognisable throughout the whole song. It's already catchy enough by itself, so I tried to emphasize it even more in my style, make it more "bouncy" while trying to keep the melancholy of it. I hope you'll like it ! Thanks a lot ! Black SeeD
  3. Just quickly listening from a casual perspective, so don't take this as a formal review, but as a listener I really enjoyed the textures and progression here. The chromatic percussion reminds me heavily of the scores for the Ori games, and the vocals are super well-integrated. Really nice work!
  4. No point belaboring this any further - this is a kickass arrangement but I definitely picked up on the mixing and clarity issues when I paneled this and it looks like that gut instinct was right, based on frequency analysis from the other judges. I also strongly feel like the lead is just not loud enough in the mix and would be so much more captivating if it was just mixed forward a little more. I really hope you take a little time to polish this - I can't find any faults in the arrangement or performances whatsoever, and you're working with such an amazing source tune. I think it would be a very minimal effort investment that would yield a huge improvement in the final product. NO (resubmit!)
  5. This is an interesting approach to arrangement that we don't really get often. The instrumentation feels almost identical to the original, though it's been clearly recreated with a pretty meticulous attention to detail. The end result reminds me a lot of Juke's approach with tracks like "Vacation in the Mushroom Kingdom" or "Our Home" where much of the personalization comes in the way that you interweave a number of other sources into the arrangement. This does feel a bit more like a medley but ultimately feels cohesive enough to pass muster on the arrangement. The Yoshi's Island theme is the only instance where the transition feels jarring, but you tie it back to the main arrangement by bringing in some of the Mario Kart tune at the same time. The whole mix definitely feels squished and messy, but in a way it almost kind of works? I feel like I'm listening to a maniacal live band play in a small pub somewhere, so the mixing doesn't feel entirely out of place for me and almost contributes to the live jam band sound. The organ solo rips, by the way. Nice work on that. I was fully prepared to vote NO on this when I first heard it but the more I engaged, the more I came around to it and appreciated all the subtle things you did with your arrangement. I'm glad to have flipped here, it's fun on this side YES
  6. Very subtle use of the source material, but it checks out - through the iconic Stickerbush arpeggio, to the chords that translate beautifully to strings and choir, to the delicate piano melody, it's all there. On the production front, this is very competently put together, despite being a complete 180 from Ly's previous submission in terms of style. It's not groundbreaking, but in true trance fashion, it gets better and better as the track goes on. When everything reaches maximum velocity, it sounds fantastic. Easy vote for me once I made sure the source checks out. Can't wait to see what you surprise us with next! YES

  8. Hey ocremix team! I'd like to submit one of my latest arrangements. Some information first! ReMixer name: Mental Real Name: Ly Tai Luu email address: my social media: https://mentalpainmusic.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/mentalpainmusicofficial userid: 17600 Name of game: Donkey Kong Country 2 Name of original soundtrack: Stickerbush Symphony Name of my arrangement: Watercolours My Motivation: Stickerbush Symphony is one of the pieces I always wanted to remake. This arrangement becoming trance was never my intention, as it started out as synthwave. After looking for some other arrangements as reference, I noticed there was already a good amount of (synthwave) remixes, so I opted for Uplifting Trance. Trance is also something I never wrote before, so it was a fun challenge for me as well! About the remix: I followed the traditional layout of starting with the kickdrum and ending with the kickdrum. So if it may come as a slow buildup; this was an intended design feature (which I'm not sure if it fits the rest of the ocremix portfolio). I tried to make the beginning and the ending more interesting though with textures and effects. Best regards and stay safe Ly
  9. hello, I'm French and don't speak English very well, this is my fifth submission, I hope my request is correct.

  10. (sent after initial rejection - NES triangle intonation tweaks) Original version Another Mario one for you all. This is a new version of my first posted ocremix (#1944) from way back in 2009, adapted for my band Marshall Art. It's the same general arrangement but with completely different instrumentation, setting it further apart from the original source tune than my initial version. I think it's different enough to justify submitting it as a companion piece to my first version. We first re-arranged this track back in 2017-2018 for our MAGFest main stage performance and subsequently recorded it for our 2020 album/performance video "ULTIMATE". This submission is largely the same as the 2020 version, but with a few tweaks to freshen it up for you guys. All the best, -Jeff Performance music video (2020 mix): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBzrtD97FdQ Credits: Jeffrey 'jmr' Roberts: arrangement, NES, Gameboy, Sega Genesis programming, mix, mastering, video edit https://ocremix.org/artist/5386/jmr Mikhail 'streifig' Ivanov: ebow guitar, rhythm guitar https://ocremix.org/artist/14464/streifig Cory Johnson: lead guitar https://ocremix.org/artist/18300/cory-johnson Jer Roque: Piano https://ocremix.org/artist/15835/jer-roque Erich 'ErichWK' Beckmann: drums, drum mixing. 4/2/23 update: I saw one of the main complaints was the intonation on the theremin style NES triangle parts. Quirk of the hardware - the pitch gets kinda squirrely on that channel in the upper registers. I hit the triangle parts with some pitch tweaks in melodyne. For context, I knew that part was a bit flat but accepted it because it was a limitation of the hardware I chose, and that's a good chunk of the band's aesthetic. The album was intended to be a pseudo-live recording with no major edits or things we couldn't achieve on stage, so it was left as is. Outside of the context of the album, I'm completely fine with faking it.

I opted to blend my love of the hectic 90s rave-influenced sound of Hyper Techno with the fun 'Put-a-Donk-on-It' nature of UK Bounce.

  13. Your ReMixer name: Lucas Guimaraes Your real name: Lucas Guimaraes Your email address: Your website: https://twitter.com/Thirdkoopa - knew nothing better to link for this Your userid (number, not name) on our forums, found by viewing your forum profile: http://ocremix.org/community/profile/33965-thirdkoopa/ Name of game(s) arranged: Super Mario World Name of arrangement: Scary Castles and Nice Plumbers Name of individual song(s) arranged: Castle Theme (Track #3, in-case it links to the whole album drive) NOTE: This is for an album that's slated to come out on 4/20. My comments: This was for the GameGrooves album challenge - the goal was to make an EP in one year. My idea was an entire Super Mario Synthwave EP. I ended up getting to mesh other genres with it - Some Latin Jazz/Funk, Ragtime, Metal, and others make their appearance. For this one, it was Dubstep+Synthwave track, which made my first time ever experimenting in Dubstep. Definitely daunting to get the hang of at first, but I'm very happy with how much progress I've made on it. The whole album was definitely a learning experience, but I'm glad to have made it. One thing I discovered about myself last year is how much more I love working on entire records than one track - you get to shape a journey for the listener for something larger than life. I was specifically inspired by Skrillex, Fox Stevenson, and Mord Fustang. I hope you enjoy it and that, revisions or not, this can make it onto the site!
  14. There are some REALLY weird harmonies here - I can't say that I find them fully enjoyable but it's certainly unique! I find myself agreeing with the previous four votes for all of the same reasons - "lack of verve" is really well-put and captures my feeling perfectly. There's actually a lot of really cool rhythms and modulations throughout the arrangement, and it's clear that a ton of work went into the writing side of this arrangement, but the sound design and production quality just feels flat by comparison. I could easily see this being a clean pass with drums that were mixed with more punch, and a lead with more expressiveness and voice, but right now, it's just falling a little bit short. I hope we hear this one again - there's a lot to love here! NO (resubmit!)
  15. It's practically unfathomable that this is coming from the same artist that gave us downright-adorable remixes such as Meteorites and Rabbits or The Glacier's Peak. Talk about a 180! But as someone whose personal tastes run the gamut from cutesy anime music all the way to black metal, this perfectly encapsulates what I love about the OCReMix community, and how it fosters an environment where boundary-breaking experiments are not just tolerated, but encouraged, without fear of needing to maintain a "personal brand" or creating consumer-friendly content. I've listened to a lot of Sigur Ros, having seen them live in concert on two separate occasions now, and this absolutely captures the essence of their more abstract, droning wall-of-sound experiments, down to the subtle synth flourishes and field recordings, or the minimal but highly impactful drum layers. You did justice to your inspirations here with a source tune that I would never in a million years have taken in this direction myself. Never apologize for keeping it weird! \m/ YES
