OverClocked ReMix (www.ocremix.org) is an online community dedicated to the appreciation and reinterpretation of video game music. Founded in late 1999 by David “djpretzel” Lloyd, the site’s mission statement explains how its members seek to prove that such music "is not disposable or merely just background, but is as intricate, innovative, and lasting as any other form.” With over 450 talented remixers and 1500 songs, the community is ever growing!OC ReMix? What the Heck is That?!How Does It Work, Exactly?Submitted remixes are pre-screened by djpretzel, and often uploaded to a judges panel (currently eight site representatives) for further evaluation.With every new track that makes it to the site, DJP posts a special writeup describing the mix, sometimes quoting the remixer and/or judges expressing their thoughts on the piece.ZOMGhigh standards! Arrangement and production are equally important to pass.Something for Everyone!OC ReMixes can be based on music from any computer, console, portable, or arcade game, so long as the original composers are given credit where due. Naturally some games have more representation than other lesser-knowns, but we have some pretty obscure stuff!Genre indiscriminate: you name it, OCR has it.OKAY, LET’S HEAR SOME EXAMPLES!!!Street Fighter 2 ‘The Ken Song’ReMixer: jdprojectGenre: RockSystem: ArcadeOriginal Composers: Alfh Lyra and Yoko Shimomura Earthbound ‘Da Black Market’ReMixers: D-Lux, Flik, Joe Cam, and Mythril Nazgul Genre: RapSystem: SNESOriginal Composers: Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka and Keiichi Suzuki Metal Gear Solid 2 ‘Metal Gear May Cry’ReMixer: Jared Hudson Genre: OrchestralSystem: PlayStation 2Original Composers: Harry Gregson-Williams, Norihiko Hibino, Rika Muranaka, and Tappy IwaseSecret of Mana ‘Dragon Song’ReMixer: Harmony Genre: Acoustic/Easy ListeningSystem: SNESOriginal Composer: Hiroki KikutaSonic the Hedgehog ‘Love Hurts’ReMixer: djpretzel Genre: FunkSystem: Sega GenesisOriginal Composer: Masato NakamuraZelda: Oracle of Ages ‘Nayru’s Love’ReMixer: Dhsu Genre: PianoSystem: Gameboy ColorOriginal Composers: Pure Sound Inc.Bomberman ‘Bomberfuzz’ReMixer: Fuzz Genre: ElectronicSystem: NESOriginal Composer: Jun Chiki ChikumaChrono Trigger ‘Electric Clouds’ReMixer: po!
