    PRC379 - Race Against The Time (Outrun)

    Oh heck, Splash Wave! I reaaaaally love this track, my favourite from Outrun, so definitely looking forward to listening to the submissions Glad Eino brought more attention to this gem!
  2. Oh boy, Jorrith, your works... They just never disappoint! This may be simply another favorite from you. The concept may throw some people off, but I'm a really huge fan of the narration here. In my opinion, it really helps to embrace the overall relaxing atmsphere here! Bravo, Stephen good job! Now, onto the instrumental. Chill, lush soundscape filled with mellow sax, sweet interplays between synths and keys and a guitar solo that makes the chills run down my spine? Yes, please! Sign me up! And give me more, this is just too awesome Once again, thank you all guys for the effort! Listened to this track 10 times in a row already, and I'm not gonna stop!
  3. Yep, this is definitely a Sir J's work. Truly wacky, crazy, making every second of listnening experience like "WTF duuuude?!", but, of course, absolutely enjoyable and simply terrific in every possible way. While the intro is more reminiscent of his sleepy mellow OoT lullaby jam (for me, at least), the rest is nothing like a relaxing ballad at all, since this brilliant blend of rock, jazz, prog, funk and disco will keep your toes tapping just right until the very end. Blistering chippy synths, spicy hot guitars, quirky brass stabs, sunny flute solos, wonderful xylophone and piano bits - this song has it all! So if you're into any kind of madness, be sure to check this one out! Mad props, Jordan, for such a sick work!

    Naming a track in a non-clickbaity way

    Yeah, you better listen to Meteo, he knows what he says :D I can't really help here, though. Maybe something like "A nod to what you've probably already heard in concerto, but it's not over yet". It may sound dumb, but hey, at least it's funny. I mean, I like when I come across such titles in VGM.
  5. Well, it's been exactly a year since Speeding Towards Adventures was released here (that was a fascinating experience, btw, thanks everyone once again <3), and I think it's time for me to try something else Anyway, some time ago Darkesword created a topic where he metioned that he would like to see Sonic 3D Blast covered (both soundtracks, of course!) and when STA got released I expressed my interest in directing such a project. I've been thinking a lot about it recently, so I'm certain I must give it a try! Let's do it! So, what we need: ReMixers. If you're interested in claiming track, just let me know. Everything here is fairly simple - the process is your usual "first come, first served" with one small exception: if you have at least a single track posted on OCR (or at least in the to-be-posted list), you can make a claim immediately. If this is not your case, then you are required to send me a WIP with a strong vision and idea. And also good production. Visual artists. Obviously, some album artwork is necessary, but it's not a must-have at this point, I'll make an update later here. However, you can already express your interest if you'd like. A feedback assistant. I'll be honest, I'll really appreciate any help here, so if you have interest in providing constructive feedback, send me a PM! Thanks! A co-director. If you're absolutely sure you will be able to take some responsibilities in process of directing a project, you can try to lend me a hand. This will be much appreciated as well Performers. If you have enough experience with any kind of instrument, and you'd like to help us, just inform me about it, and I'll add you to the list of performers here. I'm sure people will be grateful for your help! Sound designers. Want to help out with sound design and/or mastering? Cool, then join us! Deadlines: actually, I think I'll try to create a system with individual approach, so there will not be a set consequence of dates for everyone. But please, try to remain in contact with me, especially if real life stuff keeps worrying you too much. Of course, if you don't send an update for a long period of time, you will no longer have this claim, so, again, keep in touch as much as possible! No genre restrictions here, so you are free to do whatever you want! Tracklist: Green - claimed, no WIP so far Purple - claimed, initial WIP Orange - claimed, significant WIP Blue - finished Bold blue - finished and mastered Disc 1 - Mega Drive/Genesis: Title Screen (+Menu Screen?) Green Grove Zone Boss 1/Boss 2 Rusty Ruin Zone Spring Stadium Zone Diamond Dust Zone Volcano Valley Zone Special Stage Gene Gadget Zone Panic Puppet Zone Final Fight Credits Disc 2 - Saturn: Title Screen Green Grove Zone Boss Rusty Ruin Zone Spring Stadium Zone Diamond Dust Zone Volcano Valley Zone Special Stage Gene Gadget Zone Panic Puppet Zone Final Fight Credits If you'd like to claim some short track that is not listed here (maybe you're interested in a jingle medley or something), let me know!

    OCR03750 - Final Fantasy VII "Cosmo"

    Oh damn, I was hoping Mike would submit this one at some point, and well... Here we are! Very cool and even unexpected genre choice for this source. Most arrangements I've heard so far tend to keep the vibes of the original tune - they're all somewhat serene yet solemn. However, MkVaff takes absolutely new approach here and it just works impeccably. It is really really interesting to hear this fan-favorite track in such a toe-tapping, head-bopping and simply upbeat way! I can agree, that the reinterpretation is quite straightforward, as far as the melody is concerned, but I think given the EDM adaptation in this case, it can't be any better! Once again, huge kudos to Mr. Vafeas and hope to hear more in the future P.S. What a nice mixpost for this fancy number
  8. This is quite nice. It isn't really too fancy or anything, but definitely worth the download Its simple and light nature is what makes it so enjoyable for me. The piano break is like a breath of fresh air here - neat touch. The blend of sources is slightly straightforward yet well-done. My only minor complaint here is a key change at 4:23 - it sounds pretty out of place, but luckily this is the final potion of the track and it is relativly small, so it's ok overall. Great job!
  9. Actually, I've never had any problems with the original version from Smash the Record, but I'm fine with a couple of minor tweaks here and there ;) Well, this is a super fun track that simply oozes with the vibes of adventures and excitement! Both sources are already amazing, but Emery just brings them to whole new level. I was a bit skeptical at first, tbh, but this track grew on me really quickly. The solo at 1:30 is simply marvelous, and the following "Final Destination" cameo works incredibly well too - I love how DaMonz took the source and extracted all the awesomeness in this single small part. And right before diving into the second powerful chippy storm, which is no less great, we get a nice chill percussion-driven transition with some mellow backing stuff - another smart desicion in the whole structure of the track. Really appreciate this work, thats a lot! :)
  10. Oh boy, now this is what I call an intense remix! It drags you into this excellect soundscape right at the beginning and keeps your attention until it's over It may seem a bit conservative at first, indeed, and Sir_NutS' comparison to bLiNd's remix is pretty on point, to be honest. It's your relatively straightforward electronica rendition of FF, but I just can't resist the beauty of such a somewhat simple treatment. And damn, those 80's drum fills - I really love retro-ish stuff a lot, so this can only work as a plus for me. Very good stuff!

    OCR03730 - Mega Man X & X4 "Rolling"

    Man, I've been listening this track a lot since it was released as a part of SFRG. I can actually say that this is the only track from that compo that made it to the top-50 of all tracks on my phone It doesn't mean, though, that the other tracks are all much worse, no, that's just how good this particular stuff is! Anyway, really solid collaboration guys! From kicking drums and delicious synths to some serious guitar chops and smooth vocals, every little thing here shines here. You can't just listen to this once and forget about it. One of my personal highlight here, however, is the part at 2:19 - it's like a small sonic rollercoaster with all those interplays between various instruments. Once again, huge thanks for this work, you're a great trio <3
  12. You should have called this "Sixty fourth techno" Or... wait, is this title a pun already? Yeah, I'm just dumb Great track as always, btw! Love all the quirky chips here.

    OCR01541 - EarthBound "Brainshock"

    Absolutely incredible track that defies any classification Pretty interesting intro with that ambience that slowly drags you in, which suddenly turns into hip-hop with a touch of Middle-Eastern vibe, and it also turns into something else, and this chain of transformations doesn't even stop until this track ends! The part @1:31 is really different from the rest of the track, but ironically this is what I consider the highlight of this tune. Especially digging how the brass, EP and somewhat industrial-ish percussion work together. Very good job!
  14. Lmaaaaaaaooooo, wtf? Love you Mr Zieja, you're just crazy! Insane! I laugh so hard whenever Ilisten to this. Thanks. Just thanks
  15. Man, this is too good! Incredibly catchy tune with a slightly raw in-your-face sound Well done, can't even praise this ReMix enough!
