  1. Good to find a thread about hip hop! I'm very new to the OC scene (O Scene?) but I've got some rough tracks posted on sound cloud for the hell of it. Beats are pretty basic (largely videogame) samples with drum loops laid overtop, but I've been working on some more involved, arranged tracks that are suitable to post here on OCR. In the meantime, however, I'd love to do a collab sessions with a few of you guys. I listened to everything that's linked above, and I can definitely get down with it. Here's a very small sample of some of the things I've done over the past couple years. Please do let me know what you think, and/or if you're interested in doing something together. The Empire Strikes Back - A Musical Emergency *LOW QUALITY WARNING* In a very NSFW track, I play Han Solo, frustrated by his love scene being interrupted by C-3P0 Sound Cloud - Buster's Word: https://soundcloud.com/busters-word Tetris - Instrumental Hip Hop beat using Music C from NES TetrisChrono Trigger - Instrumental, up-beat hip hop instrumental using Gato's Theme from Chrono TriggerMercury [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing a sample from the second Pirates of the Caribbean movieOf the Giants [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing a sample from Kingdom Hearts (Destati) (can you point out all of the videogame references??)Ship Hold [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing sample from the "Ship Hold" from the DKC2 OST (David Wise is my hero).Thanks guys! Keep up the good work! -Taylor
  2. Hey all, As I hone my skills and work towards getting arrangements together that will meet the criteria of you fabulous contributors, I'd like to share a very small sampling of some of the work I've done so far, as well as offer my assistance in any collaborative effort you may find yourself needing help with As a disclaimer, I should state now that the following tracks being linked may contain language that is NSFW. Listen at your own discretion. Growing up, I was really into hip hop (I'd rather not talk about the state of the genre today), so I experimented early with sequencing and drum machines. My other passion, naturally, was video games, which you'll see have a strong presence in almost everything I've done thus far. It'll be quite clear to the good people at OC Remix that these works are not fit for submission as unique arrangements - most of the instrumentals featured are meant to have lyrics placed on top and, as such, don't change up terribly often. At any rate, I did want to share them with you all so you can A) get a good idea of what I'm about as a lyricist and see how I've used a video-game-centric childhood to drive my personal flavor of hip hop. Without further Ado: The Empire Strikes Back - A Musical Emergency *LOW QUALITY WARNING* In a very NSFW track, I play Han Solo, frustrated by his love scene being interrupted by C-3P0 Sound Cloud - Buster's Word: https://soundcloud.com/busters-word Tetris - Instrumental Hip Hop beat using Music C from NES TetrisChrono Trigger - Instrumental, up-beat hip hop instrumental using Gato's Theme from Chrono TriggerMercury [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing a sample from the second Pirates of the Caribbean movieOf the Giants [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing a sample from Kingdom Hearts (Destati) (can you point out all of the videogame references??)Ship Hold [NSFW] - Full Hip Hop Track (Beat + Lyrics) utilizing sample from the "Ship Hold" from the DKC2 OST (David Wise is my hero).Let me know what your thoughts are, and if I could be of help on any upcoming projects! And, stay tuned for more OC-Remix-centric work coming in the future. Can't wait to work with some of you! Cheers, -Taylor
  3. Hi Everyone! This is my first post here at OCRemix, but it's far from my first visit. I've been listening to your contributions since I dared to download last.fm on my (original) Droid like a hundred years ago while getting ready for work one day. I literally dashed out of the shower mid-wash when I first heard "The Flood Plain" by JigginJonT in a panicked, must-find-the-source-of-this-work-before-it's-over" moments. So... Thanks Jon (and, of course, everyone else who has contributed and given me amazing music to listen to). I grew up playing videogames and making music, but lately my work in the games industry has all but squashed the time and dedication it requires to do anything creative/productive in the musical world. This next year, I've promised myself, will be different. As such, I'm hoping to join some of you folks making awesome arrangements and contribute in absolutely any way that I can. Who knows, maybe I'll even be able to get a solo effort through the works. As for me, I am mainly a hip hop head, but videogame music has always held a very special place in my heart. The mixture of the two, while potentially unorthodox, has proven to be some of the most hard-hitting and lyric-friendly rap beats I've heard. I'm excited to share my own versions of this genre marriage since I've noticed that hip hop isn't completely represented here, at least in the ways other genres are. How do you all feel about hip hop? Are there some hip hop remixes that you like, and I've missed? Please share! Finally, I'd love to be able to share with you some of the game-inspired hip hop work I've done so far so you can see what I'm about, but I'm unsure what the policy is here for linking external sites. I've read through the Newbie Guide and the Submissions Standards, so it looks like I have some work to do before my stuff actually gets into OCRemix proper, but I'd really like to share what I've got so far so any potential collaborators can get a good sense of what I bring to the table. I recently was part of a Star Wars musical in San Francisco in which I had the honor of playing a love-stricken Han Solo who just had his love scene with Princess Leia interrupted by 3PO. It actually happens to be a bit NSFW, so that's another question: What's the policy on submissions that contain lyrics which are... how should I say... "PG-13 and above"? It's a pleasure to make all of your acquaintances! -Taylor
