I am pretty much a lurker around here, except when I'm experimenting with remixes of my own (none of which are of the caliber that OCRemix would take, but that's another story for another day)... But I had to come out of my lurking shell and at least say something about this mix. Decidedly new and original, to say the least.
Just like DJP said... first 11 seconds, the song just sounds like another techno mix. But then, my head gets to bobbing at 11" in. At 33", the main melody starts kickin, and my eyes drift closed -- I'm deep into the song now, my head sways left and right as my head bobs. What a jammin' song, I think to myself. At 1'11" I get a little variation on what's been going on and get further into what my ears are processing through Bazooie's magic...
But it's at 1'28" that I really start moving my whole body to the groove. The transition to this decidedly short section of this piece isn't perfect, but the song has actually enthralled me to the point of forgetting everything that's going on around me BUT the song. Amazing. Not perfect, but this mix is thus far perfect in its imperfections, if you catch my meaning.
And at 2'02", all hope is lost as I drift away into a buzzin' world of Wizards and Warriors Goodness. Back to the lyrical stuff. Who cares what the lyrics are -- the song is just flowin'. At 3'07", my strange trip into the Bazooie's musical world of Wizards and Warriors finally begins its descent toward reality, and fades into the dark depths of silence.
... whoa. What an experience.
The euphoric state of stereophilic goodness that I experienced here is unmatched since maybe goat's Ironsword remix... but perhaps not really like this since the now-antiquated "Death on the Snowfield" mix. This is one of the most naturally-flowing mixes I have heard to date, to say the least. Bazooie knows what the hell's going on, and I like it. Props to you, my friend -- you have made it to my (very short and exclusive) list of favorites from OCR after only 3 listens.
