zircon Posted January 9, 2014 Report Share Posted January 9, 2014 OverClocked Records is here!http://overclockedrecords.com WHAT IS IT? OverClocked Records (or OC Records) is the official record label of OverClocked ReMix. Our catalog includes video game soundtracks and non-VGM original albums by composers and musicians in the community. All music is available to purchase in tagged lossless format with no DRM. Just to be clear, this is a totally separate site from OC ReMix! We're going to continue to post hundreds of amazing arrangements and free albums on OCR every year. OC Records is a new way for fans to show their support for original albums and soundtracks by OC ReMixers. WHO DID YOU SIGN? As of the January 3rd launch, OC Records features music from dozens of talented artists including Joshua Morse, Disasterpeace, Jeff Ball, Big Giant Circles, Jordan Steven (bLiNd), halc, Beatdrop, and many more. The label is invite-only, but also non-exclusive! IS IT GOOD FOR THE ARTISTS? We pay our artists 80% of every sale, with a portion of our 20% going to support OC ReMix. Our arrangement is totally non-exclusive and we take no rights or ownership. Compared to the mainstream industry standard of 12-15% to artists, and the indie standard of 50/50, this is by far one of the best ways to support your favorite artists & composers. BACKGROUND djpretzel, Larry and I have been discussing the idea of a 'commercial' arm of OC ReMix, and in late 2013 we finally began putting it together. OC Records is actually a separate entity entirely, though a portion of revenues go to supporting OC ReMix. Our goal is for it to become the #1 source for great video game music and original albums, promoting our artists and their fantastic work. As mentioned above, this will not impact OC ReMix - which will continue to provide tons of great free arrangements, ReMixes, and albums! OC Records is a separate entity. CAN I BE INVOLVED? Whether you are interested in contributing music to the label or helping out in some other way, drop us a line on our contact page! WHAT DO YOU HAVE PLANNED? We have big dreams! In the more immediate future, we plan on having bundles and a pay-what-you-want / tipping system. We want to have regular video/radio shows or podcasts to talk about new music in the community. We want to eventually open up the door to selling officially licensed VGM arrangements: fantastic albums like For Everlasting Peace: 25 Years of Mega Man and the OverClocked University debut album, Freshman Year. There's so much we can do with this - with your support and enthusiasm! LAUNCH LINEUP What are we going to do with all these albums?! They don't even fit on one screen!
