An OverClocked Christmas ~ Now Recruiting

Recommended Posts

Well hello everyone, greetings.

So, it's that time of year again, and I know many of you are excited! So, let's get to it: An OverClocked Christmas NEEDS YOU! And more specifically, your music! So, the following should answer all of your questions, I hope... LOL!

The Details

  • any genre is welcome
  • collaboration is always welcome
  • you may rearrange or remix video game, traditional, or even write your own original for this album

Album Deadline

In past years, I ran the deadline right up until Christmas Eve. This year, we're doing things a little differently.

This year's deadline is...


There are a few reasons for this. First and foremost, I'm taking a suggestion that the album be released sooner so that everyone can enjoy it throughout the month of December, not just for a few days before New Year's Eve. Secondly, I'd like to avoid banging my head against a wall the day before I go to the annual Christmas Party that I attend. And finally, it gives us all a little more room in case something catastrophic happens (which, if you know me, you know is entirely possible, such as errors with the web pages or naming mishaps with the MP3s).

So, that should be that!

How to Contact Me

The easiest way is to contact me via PM here on OCR. You can also contact me via GMail at:

If there are any questions, comments, suggestions, or the like, please feel free to send them my way, and even post them in this thread!

Thank you, and I look forward to your tracks!

Source Round-up!

ocre's been kind enough to round up some awesome source material if you're looking to remix some video game music! Check it out at this link:

In case you missed it, here's the web site url for An OverClocked Christmas --

Looking for Collab

Hoboka (looking for someone with good production skills)

Encoding your Tracks

I would like your tracks encoded at 192kbps, 44khz and in MP3 format. I do this to keep it uniform. If you have sent me a file already that happens to be a .wav, I will personally re-encode it at the encoding as specified above.

Thank you!!

I think I could pump out that quick groovy remix of "Ring Rink" from Ristar that I didn't get to do last year.

I'll LOVE YOU A LOAD if you get it done. Ristar needs more love :D

I will say this much, it's going to be a more planned out project than you're used to seeing me work on. The time frame will be rather tight, but, it'll be worth it.
