  1. Hi everyone,

    I haven't been here for a while. I only recently found out about DJ Redlight (Ashley Carr) passing away in 2016. Some people might remember his remixes on here and his original music and have a special place in their memories for him.

    Ashley lived in Perth, Western Australia, which also happens to be where I live. So I took a trip today to the Memorial Park where he is buried and photographed his memorial plaque. I played some of his music at the site as well and sat with him for a bit.

    If you aren't familiar with Ashley or his music, I recommend visiting his website https://www.djredlight.com and OC ReMix profile https://ocremix.org/artist/4593/dj-redlight and having a listen. He was a talented artist and it really sucks that he died so young.

    If anyone would like to see his final resting spot, his profile is here along with the photograph I took.

    Rest in Peace, Ashley Carr.

  2. Funky. I recognised the source straight away even though it's one of the more forgettable tracks from the game.

    I think this has a bit of a Richard Joseph (RIP) sound to it, perhaps what he might've made if he was alive today. That's a huge compliment.

    The music is harmoniously satisfying, even accounting for all the effects added to the melody. Even though I think dubstep is a bit overdone now, it works nicely in this track. Good job.

  3. Yeah the source is from Doom, not Doom 2.

    Great remix. It's disjointed and unnerving enough to make up for the randomness of the track. It's not my taste, but I can appreciate how well it's made. You captured the atmosphere of the level perfectly. eerily, nauseatingly evil, yet also slightly mechanical and scifi at the same time. Good job.

  4. One of my favourites from the album. I listened to this album blind, that is I just had all the tracks on a disc playing in my car randomised so I didn't know who made what. I guessed this one was sephfire based on what I've heard from him in the past.


    He's come a long way over the last decade. I always loved his tracks back when I was more active on here. This one shows just how much he's elevated his technique into that of a true downtempo artist. It helps that the source material was a beautiful piece of melancholy which was an excellent choice for sephfire's style.


    All of the ambient/electonics effects are seamless, the beats carefully chosen and mastered perfectly, and the build-ups are so satisfying, particularly that eargasmic last note. I always enjoy listening to this track when it comes on.

  5. I'm slowly reviewing and editing my reviews of the album's tracks. I just wanted to post my first impressions.


    katethegreat19 is above and beyond the standout on the album. "Tribe of the Sandy Treehouse" is by far my favourite track on the album, which is ironic since the source material is my least favourite piece from the OST. Brandon Strader has to be applauded for the contributing three amazing tracks to the album as well.


    My favourite tracks from first impressions, in no particular order:

    Tribe of the Sandy Treehouse

    Vamo all Django
    Lunar Rebellion
    Craic in the Castle Walls

    A Rose in the Storm

    Spirits of Gaia
    Four Score and Six-Eight
    Miles and Miles Away
    Zero World


    I'll probably post a full review up in a month's time once I've had a good chance to listen to all the tracks properly.

  6. So sexy, so smooth. I keep coming back to this tragic (err, that was autocorrect, but I thought it was funny so I left it there) track and XPRTNovice's "Miles and Miles Away" (They're back to back on the album, and it is by far the sexiest section of the album.)


    I love this style, Dave, I always look forward to your tracks on these albums.


    I'm ashamed to admit it took me a while to figure out why the title is Four-Score and Six Eight.

  7. XPRTNovice is the standout performer on the album so far. I love the Jewish Phantom Train music.

    I haven't listened all the way through, just jumped between my favourite tracks from the game. I'm impressed with A Fistful of Nickels, Prologue, Ascension of a Madman, Bad Octopus, Slam Davis, Megiddo Brigade, Black Genesis, Event Horizon, Go-Go Gadget Gonkulator and The Narshemellow.

    Once again, haven't listened to them all, or even thoroughly yet. Just first impressions. I'd love to do a full review, time permitting.

  8. According to a translated interview Linked here., this has been confirmed by Square Enix to be an HD rerelease (read: port) and not a ground-up remake. You can change the topic title now.

    Exactly what I was hoping for. The game is great the way it is, I couldn't see how they could remake it without completely changing it. It's already pretty realistic.

    Same with Spiderman movies. I don't think a remake is possible.

  9. My good friend of many years is currently living in Canada (Toronto) and is planning a trip to the US. He wants to spend a while in New York, but he's going alone which has me worried.

    I was wondering if any OCR New Yorkers might want to volunteer to play host to him for his visit. If you have a room he can use, that'd be great. He could pay. Otherwise if you're just happy to meet him for a lunch or show him around, I'd really appreciate that.

    He's 24, Australian by nationality. I'm kinda keeping tabs on him, because he's important to me and I don't want anything to happen to him.

    Let me know if you're up for playing host, I can give you his MSN address so you can chat.
