OC ReMix launches OverClocked Records, the Game Music Community Record Label

January 22, 2014

Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA - Video game arrangement website OverClocked ReMix announced today the launch of OverClocked Records (http://overclockedrecords.com), a record label focusing on original video game soundtracks and albums by game music composers, arrangers, and ReMixers. As a sister site to OC ReMix, OC Records offers a curated collection of music by diverse artists such as Big Giant Circles, Disasterpeace, Beatdrop, halc, Shannon Mason, Flexstyle, Sean Beeson, HyperDuck SoundWorks, Blake Robinson, and many more.

Featuring over 70 albums in its launch catalog, OverClocked Records showcases a diverse range of musical styles, from chiptune, trance, and orchestral, to funk, jazz, and rock. All albums are available in lossless digital format for $10 or less, with no digital rights management (DRM) and 80% of every sale going directly to the artists. A portion of each sale also goes to the continuing operations of OverClocked ReMix, LLC.

"For years, we've been looking for a way to spotlight and support all the amazing original music being created by the game music community," said Larry "Liontamer" Oji, co-founder of the label. "With OC Records, we're hoping to bring that music and these artists to the widest audience possible."

Larry is joined by co-founders David "djpretzel" Lloyd, creator and founder of OC ReMix, and game composer Andrew "zircon" Aversa.

To celebrate the launch of the label, OverClocked Records has assembled a free, downloadable album sampler featuring 20 tracks from the launch catalog. The sampler is available at the label website, as well as their official SoundCloud (http://soundcloud.com/overclocked-records).

OverClocked Records will expand throughout 2014 to include many more hand-picked artists and albums in a plethora of styles, as well as features such as artist interviews, behind-the-scenes features, and podcasts/webshows.
