PRC460 - Buying A Haggstrom (Minecraft + Tyrian)


Recommended Posts

The People's Remix Competition 460

Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

A new year, already the 20th of PRC. As last years, the opener has two sources, this time picked by the winners of PRC457 and PRC458: TheVideoGamer and Evktalo. This resulted in the following combination.

This round is located at:



One important change in the rules is that from now on most of the source limitations are removed. The winner of this round still may pick the next source, he/she also may pick a source which already have songs at Ocremix. Also past PRC sources may be picked, except for the sources which are already picked in season 19 (last year). It still must be a Video Game source.

So even Ice Cap is allowed for a PRC source from now on.


Source 1: Minecraft (PC) Haggstrom

Update: The MIDI has been created. Everything is ready to go. Thanks for your patience.

So the source I am sending to you is Haggstrom from Minecraft. I’m surprised Minecraft is not featured on here, as one it’s a hugely popular game, and two the soundtrack is actually pretty awesome. I was expecting a huge wave of remixes and remixers here, so I don’t understand. Maybe there’s a pattern or something hidden, who knows. Oh well, I guess this is the first time Minecraft is on here. 

I shouldn’t have to explain Minecraft on here, it’s pretty huge. You are a stranger in the middle of nowhere and you must construct civilisation by punching blocks and crafting items. You explore caves for materials, whilst avoiding the weird creatures, as well as farm animals for food, and use wood and sand for infer-structure. Again it’s so popular I’m kind of preaching to the choir lol. It’s not the game though we talk about here, it’s the awesome OST from C418 also known as Daniel Rosenfeld. In this case it’s Haggstrom.

I picked this because it’s perfect as a winter tune (Since it plays when it snows), it’s got a nice simple melody with a calming but sort of cute feel to the sound, and also it’s not as common as the others. It’s still huge yes, but not as much as the others. It’s in the middle of the popularity scale as such. It’s got 2 parts, which both feed each other. Part one features an assortment of chimes from Kalimbas, Celestas, Vibraphones and the like, and simulates a bit of a Christmas vibe without it representing that period. There is a piano that also plays, which like the rest goes through a few key changes before we go back to C Major. The whole thing is in 7/4. The second half is the synth section, and is mostly in E minor, comprising of Delayed synths and basslines. It’s an awesome piece, that still boggles my mind now no one from OCRemix has even taken a go at remixing in. Hope you do this one justice!

Game: Minecraft

Source: Haggstrom

And my own custom MIDI:





Source 2: Tyrian (PC) Shop Music (Buy / Sell Screen)

Hello Bundeslang, thank you for hosting PRC!

Here's my pick:

Shop music from Tyrian, apparently called "Buy / Sell Screen" on OCR database


MIDI: https://vgmusic.com/music/computer/microsoft/windows/TYRIAN_BuySellMusic_v11.mid

on the page https://vgmusic.com/music/computer/microsoft/windows/



The deadline is Saturday January 28th 2023 at 10:59 am ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT), check the link https://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/PRC460 for the exact time left. Make sure that the song is uploaded to ThaSauce or that there’s a download link posted in this thread. Three extra days.

You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix. You are free to create a second ThaSauce account for that if you use ThaSauce, it's needed to be able to upload a second remix if you use ThaSauce. Of course you can also upload it somewhere else and put a download link in this thread.

Do not make qualitative comments on an entry until the results of the vote have been posted in this thread.

To participate it is enough to remix one of the sources. Remixing both in one song is encouraged and will be rewarded with a 3 point bonus. TheVideoGamer and Evktalo can take part by remixing the source selected by the other or remixing both in one song. They only have a double vote if they don't participate (or mix only their own source).

Mixers cannot vote for themselves but if they vote they receive a free first place vote added onto their score.

The winner of this round may select the source for PRC462. This also may be a source with an Ocremix or a past PRC source, except for sources which are mixed in season 19. It must be a Video Game source.


You can find the full rules list at this page as well.
