Congratulations on a great mix getting posted! I'm glad you tweaked this after the initial sub; the end result really shines for it.

i can say all the same things you've said for me. i have watched you grow phenominally as a musician since the old vgmix2 days, and now, hell, we're both overclocked.

uber congrats.

this mix is hot. build beginning at 2:19 and the big epic chorus that carries through after the build is just awwwesome. 3:19-4:50 is my favorite part, its just so big and powerful and great.

again, congrats, and keep it coming brotha

I had this turned on way too low on my first listen.

Beautiful work, felt like a solid combination of tried and true trance and some very haunting and sometimes surprisingly warming melodies.

I'm so proud of you, James. :) At the rate you were improving, I figured you'd have what it takes to reach OCR's level, and you've done it! Great job, man.

Jewbei sent me this song as he was developing it and the result is perfection. Every song he makes is an amazing mix of emotion and imagination, all wrapped up in an mp3 that goes on repeat for hours and hours. Pretension is no exception.

Congratulations, J!! It's about time OCR realized how amazing you are.

Its about time this awesomeness made it to OCR :3 But I do question one thing on the Big Bosses' review... "for this frigid weekend morning we've got more toasty n00b action" I has been watchin' the Jewbster for many a while, he is no longer a n00b. XD PS: Jewbei this song is still on my current playlist :D

Hey man, I knew it was only a matter of time before I'd see you up here. One of your lead synths sounds pretty close to the distorted leads I like to use. I've always loved sounds like that and it works beautifully here.

This mix takes a bit to get started, but that's how trance music seems to be. With it's builds and breakdowns, this song does a lot to keep the listeners attention. The mixing is also well balanced.

I've also seen you come a long way from VG mix 2. Now we both have posted mixes on OCR. I'd say you are about at the point where production wise you have things down quite well, your arrangement skills have made huge jumps in improvement too.

My guess is that you'll continue to improve and have many songs on here in the future. I also see a collaboration between us sometime :). We'll have to see what happens. Excellent work man!

Yo dude glad to see you on here! You've worked your ass off the past couple of years and always taken to criticism EXTREMELY WELL.

One of the coolest things about the track is that the source tune is very simple. You really took the best parts of it and made an entire cohesive song out of it. Not always easy to do but can make for some kick ass remixes. Love the searing leads at the end.

Now go make some more muziks dude! :)

"n00b", as in, this is his first OC ReMix. He's a n00b to being posted here.

Hey Jewbei! Just want to say congrats on your first submission to OCR! :) Keep up the wonderful work! Expecting to see a lot more from you in the future.

Sorry I haven't spoken to you on AIM for a while. Been so busy. After MAGFEST, I'm sure things will ease down and Jordan can get back to his music.

There was a lot of great stuff in this mix. I think it could have used a breakdown somewhere and a more climactic finish, and I felt the ending was a bit repetitive, but those are my only complaints. Overall, it was a pretty good listen. Very layered and enthralling. Good work :]

Well he's been here a while, posted a song (though it didn't make the cut)... so he's not a n00b. plus... n00b sounds lame and Jewbei ain't lame XD

Maybe "New Challanger"

Anyone who has a first mix here is a "newcomer" or "n00b"; it doesn't mean they're new to music. In other words, shaddapz! :tomatoface:

This is a really cool track. I like how you don't rely on the same sounds and patterns the whole mix, every moment feels like it has some sort of fresh new element driving things forward. This track has a very natural flow that is very important for trance music. Great work Jewbei!
