DusK Posted August 14, 2013 Report Share Posted August 14, 2013 (edited) Streets of Rage 3-year/3-album Project News Next check-in date: May 31st. The bulk of the remix should be done around this time. The Vision In 1999, OverClocked ReMix was born out of a desire to acknowledge video game music as an art form through interpretive arrangement. To that end, the community has expanded into the single-best music-centric community on the Internet, and host to some of the greatest independent musical talent the Internet has to offer. The 16-bit era played a large role in that. One 16-bit game series that seems to be near and dear to many hearts is the Streets of Rage series. Despite this, it has never spawned an album here. In an effort to pay tribute not only to the game series and it's fantastic composer, Yuzo Koshiro, but also to the 90s and this fantastic community, I'm starting direction on a three-album project. Each album will be as close as possible to a year apart in release, with a year-long development time each. Genre and Music Guidelines There aren't really any genre restrictions per se, but the project is a nod to both the music of 90s and the OC ReMix community. With that in mind, remixes should: a) Draw inspiration from 90s or late-80s music, and Incorporate a musical style that is preferred by the remixer(s) This is intended to be an official OC ReMix album. You'll be expected to deliver a remix that meets OverClocked ReMix's quality standards. Be prepared to continuously work on your remix until it meets that standard. If you're having trouble coming up with a suitable 90s genre, check this Wikipedia article for some examples. I'd like to maintain a certain level of secrecy for this album. Previously-released tracks are ineligible. Remixes that you have finished or almost finished but haven't put out there yet are fair game, but keep in mind that this album won't be releasing until late next year. Jus' somethin' to think about. What We Need ReMixers! Can't have a remix album without that, no matter how hard you try. Talent evaluators. People who are up for helping me out with feedback delivery. One head isn't as good as... more than one head. OCR staff preferred. Visual artist. Preferably one that can stick around for the whole three years and do art for all three albums. Someone to come up with some bitchin' names for these albums. Seriously, throw 'em out there. I'm all ears. Eyes. Whatever. Resources pu_freak can contribute piano bits. Orangedragan is a male baritone vocalist willing to collaborate. Damashii!! is down for "horn/brass hits, funk guitar and/or vocal one shots, and anything else in the field of funk 'garnish' or 'sprinkles' to add to your arrangements, if needed at all." Chenabogue is offering orchestra and drum programming. BrothaDom is offering backup and rap vocals. Claiming a Track Anyone can claim a source. Simply post here or PM me expressing your interest in remixing the source. First come, first served. Once you make a claim, you have three weeks from the day of your claim to deliver a substantial WIP that clearly conveys the direction you plan on taking your remix and, if you're not a posted ReMixer, demonstrates your ability to produce and arrange on a level expected of an OC ReMix release. If you miss the deadline, or turn in a WIP that doesn't meet the album vision or quality guidelines to an acceptable degree, your source will be re-opened, and you will not be allowed to claim any source without providing a WIP that meets the qualifications. Don't be one of those guys who's all like "I wanna claim a track but not show you anything for over a month." Please be ready, and please be dedicated. Bonus remixes will be considered once all of the source tracklist is claimed.
