OCR02865 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV 'Casiopizza vs. TMNT-Square'


Recommended Posts

Mmmm, yeah, this is a near-perfect arrangement of Night Riders. Jazz fusion with a heavy undertone was the right to go for sure. Not really laid-back in any sense, but it's got a cool smooth feeling. Not really familiar with Casiopea, but this mix makes me want to look into that later. Nice work.

While TMNT:SS is full of metal, heavy, face-melting tracks, this one is something else. The electronic intro, which leads to the main journey, is short, but works nice. The body of this track is also very cool. The rocking parts has a feeling of riding a bike in the night. But the lounge parts, which are perfect for casino, sound different, yet very good. And the mixture of this parts is my favorite track from this album. Sweet.

So, I'm not familiar with the source material, but I was listening to this while driving.  I just thought to myself, MAN this sounds like T-Square.  A band which has a direct connection to me eventually discovering OCRemix in the first place!

Never having an SNES growing up -> Discovering emulation -> Playing with sound channels -> playing songs on my keyboard -> Discovering MIDIs and MIDI hosting websites -> Somehow finding Moon over the Castle from Gran Turismo.

So now I have a 3.5" floppy disk with my most favorite MIDIs that I take to school and friend houses, with Moon Over the Castle being my absolute favorite.

Then while getting ready for school one morning, I randomly hear a bit of Moon Over the Castle.  On TV.  On the morning NEWS!?  What the heck... it's some bit about video games I don't know.  But holy crap, that was the first time I heard what amounted to my favorite piece of music at the time with real instruments.

In comes Napster.  And the discovery of the following: Masahiro Andoh, T-Square, Red in Blue, and perhaps most importantly, more versions of Moon Over the Castle.  I had discovered the term "remix."  And with it, so very, very many things.  Super Mario remixes, Legend of Zelda.  Virt, McVaffe (and his so very many).  And eventually... this tag that was on the end of so many of these tracks... "ocremix" ...

Holy cow that was like... 19-20 years ago...  Man I was discovering remixed video game music about the same time OCRemix was being born.
