  1. Nice work! That's one of the best anime themes of the 90s, I'd say. So many great hooks. Your version is like a "On the last episode..." version that would play at the start of each show. Very bouncy, and I like how you played the main melody!
  2. I'm not familiar with the original song but I could've taken another 2 minutes of that, at least! I love the section at around 1:40 especially. Really digging the balance struck between playing the melody cutting loose with breaks. There's a lot going on but the big change-ups feel very natural and not cut-and-pastey. Killer use of tape warp throughout the whole piece.
  3. Whooo boy, those orch hits indeed ("what about their legs...they don't need those..."). It's so funny to think they were cutting edge at one time because nowadays they instantly date the music they're in. There's some New Order stuff from ~'86 that has them. Must've sounded like the future at the time. Anyhow, I don't know Terranigma, but this ReMix is slathered in so much cheese that I can't help but...stick my finger in it. Or something.
  4. Some interesting arrangement choices in this. When I listen to the original, I kind of just fold my arms and wait for *that* melody towards the end of each loop, but this version adds more color to the earlier sections, too.
  5. I am just hearing this now and it is SO deliberate and SO deathly serious. It's everything I'd want in a remix of this song. 11/10.
  6. I don't know the original, but this has such a great, churning build to it. Great mixing, too.
  7. I really dig how the electric bass and synth bass shift in and out of one another. I'm trying to tell where one starts and the other stops and after three listens I can't. Really cool.
  8. Not a deconstructed vid, but I've always loved how this track squeezed as much crazy noise out of the chip as possible. If you listen for a couple minutes, the later verses really go nuts with modulation and whatnot. https://youtu.be/FZ5BNxcQpqQ
  9. Incredible version. Like something from a Mario Odyssey version of Zelda. Some stuff here is a teensy bit raw, vocals included, and the take sounds a little loose, and it just makes it all even better.
  10. I only "discovered" Moroder in 2019, but this is a cool tribute! I also just found out about Bitwig; they have a holiday sale until Jan. 7th so I'm taking the plunge, methinks. I'm excited!
  11. @prophetik music"if this was on an OST for a game, there'd be someone out there who said that this is their favorite track." I kind of treated this like an OST deep cut, yeah! @Rexy"If anything, it quickly turned into the musical equivalent of a shitpost" I need to save this quote for the back of a release one day, like the John Stewart quote for The Book of Mormon playbill. You know, there's more humor in this than most of the stuff I do, so it's really cool to have it on OCR (especially after being a fan for almost 20 years!). And to be mentioned in the same write-up as Harold P. Warren's masterwork?!
  12. Great vibe, great stutter. Finds that sweet spot between grime and sheen. The harmonics at 1:55 - gimmie all of that *gobbles it up, greedily*. Agree 300% with OCR being a kind of bastion for less popular genres. I think my first ever tastes of industrial AND trance came from this site, 17-18 years ago (both FFVII mixes, ironically). Also, as someone who just got back into making my own music after some years away, I always appreciated this site for supporting interpretations over straight covers. The creative process it takes to arrange something new out of something old...sometimes a track doesn't work out the way it does in your head, but the end results can be incredibly rewarding when they do (or after those happy accidents). PS. I'v also been constantly impressed by DJP's writing/write-ups. Manages to find new ways to write about music with each new post. As we're all at the point of no return with texting, social media character limits, and clickbait pseudo-journalism, (not to mention professional deadlines and shorter attention spans), it's often very refreshing for me, personally, to see a well-worded paragraph or three on the main page of a site that supports creative arts like this one.
  13. This one is definitely a highlight for me. Funny lyrics but in the context of a pop song with a strong melodic structure. An encouraging example of taking your work seriously but not yourself.
  14. Love the bass on this, sound and arrangement-wise. It has a great attack and just goes and goes.
  15. Love how this ducks in and out of the groove. Cool switches between moving forward and moving side-to-side.
