Mr. Peeples, how dare you! Maybe we should just change this to "Scott Peeples OverClocked ReMix", eh? He's done it yet again, this time with the ever popular RARE hit Goldeneye. Love the nice ambient 'dialing-in' sounds at the beginning (o course, any self-respecting hacker should really get cable or ADSL) and in general the atmosphere on this one. It's our first Goldeneye ReMix, and it sets a high benchmark. Everything else we've come to expect from Sir Peeples - kickin' drums, excellent quality & reverb, good compositional variety, is all in there, and he has created yet another must download. ReMixed, not stirred . . . (sorry, had to say that)

:lol: The dial-up sound effects always make me laugh. The "not-so-good" ol' days of computers. It sets up the hacker atmosphere pretty well, especially with the sirens following it with the Bond undertones. Nice to hear some of those computer clicking sounds and such come back in later on. Great spy vibe and a great ReMix overall. Definitely an old-school gem.

When I first got to OCR, I was only looking for games I recognized and loved. Goldeneye was one of those games and I was disappointed that the site only had two mixes at the time. However, those mixes were good stuff. This one is so much fun. I love the tone it sets in the beginning but then it really starts moving. The ending was always cool to me, just slowly leaving the fight like a real agent.

This is a great source, albeit heavily based upon the original James Bond theme. Brings back so memories of that 'Bunker' level. Great mix!

Ahhhh... I can see myself now, creeping around the facility, silenced PP7 in my right hand (my arm aching from holding the gun directly in front of me at ALL times)... goooood memories.

Nostalgia aside, Mr. Peeples' aptly titled Hacker Mix perfectly conveys the tension of stealthing around the facility.

It's been said before, but the all the dial-up/hacking in etc sound effects, followed by the alarm sounding: genius.

I really like the atmosphere this one puts forward; a hacker atempts to do his work, fails, and trips off the alarms, and the rest of the track has a nicely complementary cybernetic/fiber optic feel to it. I can feel the undercurrent of tension running through this mix, which that's good. It quickens the pulse but without excessive energy, so it does feel like an appropriate theme for if the crux of the situation rested on a hacker in a basement's success instead of just beating up all the thugs.

Ultimately, I like this because the atmosphere is consistent here; I especially like how the initial sound effects are repeated later on.

I'm impressed that this one comes through as strongly as it does, because I thought the Goldeneye soundtrack was so reliant on the James Bond theme it would be impossible to remix. And while the Facility theme doesn't actually come into this until the 0:50 point, I can excuse it for having a damn strong opening. The modem dialling brings me back, as does the xylophone Bond theme so distinct to the Goldeneye game.

I think there is far too much Bond theme in here, something that is hard to get around considering the source, but the parts with the Facility theme are quite cool and nostaligic for me. The countless hours I spent setting remote mine traps in the Facility with my friends may be affecting my judgement, but this mix is as hardcore as the N64 itself.

This has to be one of my top favorite downloads off the OCremix site. Peeples... you did an awesome job with this one. Easily a top played on my iPod.

Any chance that Scott will post his Infiltration Mix here? That mix and the Hacker Mix go hand in hand... both are unique takes on a great tune, in my opinion.

I gotta comment on the intro.. Why would you be typing while waiting for a modem to connect? Reality aside, it really set the mood and was a great way to start a very strong mix. I love how it switches so seamlessly from the rocking parts to the softer parts, and how the alarm matches the beat. It has a great flow, kicking from hacking to action and back again. The drums change beats several times, keeping things interesting, and the samples all around are fantastic.

Recommended.

This is one of the most original remixes I've heard.

The begining "hacking" noise with the dial-up modem is great. The little alarm sounds bring back great memories of Goldeneye 64. The sound quality is amazing; I've never heard remixes that sounded so clean. He begins it and wraps it up very nicely though, some remixes seem to just fade while I'm expecting more. Peeples closes it without leaving me feel like there should be more.

One of my favorites, no doubt.

hey, when i first got this, i only listened to the beginning, yeah, the computer/dial up thing really didnt sound like a remix, so i was put off for a bit. but after i listened to the full thing, i really found it interesting... i like the piano, not really James Bond-ish, but thats wat makes it cool...

anyone else really love the James Bond theme? i love it, man theres a club at school were we go watch Bond movies, its wicked. anyways...

Let us just say that Facility (Hacker) is one of the best remixes i've heard yet, just bringing together all the neccesaries into one song. The piano the drums it's all a smooth tone that we all needed to hear. A hint of haunting tunes just seem to grab me (and anybody) to make you listen OVER AND OVER AGAIN! May I say that if i had any clue how to remix, because Fruity Loops is too complex for a moron such as I. I would have to have this song as an inspiration. I highly recommend it, but that means nothing does it! ANYWHO Love it, gotta have it, nice job.

Hacking sounds different, depending on what you're burying the machete into, duh.

Yet another of the classics from this site that I keep listening to. For what it's worth, the Facility was my favorite multi-player AND single-player level from Goldeneye. In fact, every time I see the movie, I compare the accuracy of the movie TO the game. I used to play this level over and over again, just trying out different things. And I'm an enormous fan of the Matrix. Therefore, this mix, in my psychotic opinion, kicks the huge nabookie ass.

I just can't say enough good things about this mix. So, I won't. GO DOWNLOAD IT, OR I'LL TRACE YOUR SIGNAL, AND PERSONALLY HUNT YOU DOWN AND DELETE YOU.
