Tune in to OCremix’s Eevee EP!

August 20, 2013

Well I just wanted to drop a blurb about the latest release from OCremix so no one missed it. It is called the Eevee EP and it’s fantastic. It departs from retro a bit because the remixes span the original series up to the newer games, but it’s worth every breach of protocol. There’s a total of 9 tracks and every one of them is excellent. Each evolution of Eevee is given a song plus Eevee him/herself.

Artists to Look Out for: Technodrome

May 16, 2011

Get ready to rock out to one of the newer VGM cover bands from Melbourne, Australia: Technodrome. If you expected a modest rendition of Mario and Zelda with some distortion, and maybe a good Pokemon cover to top it off. Well… you got it! But that would be understating these guys, so I’ll not only pull up their videos from youtube, but I’ll even give you an interview to show you all they have to offer.

Sonicesque

February 21, 2011

Well the last thing I would have thought about doing lately was putting up a new article on Continue? – sorry guys – but that was until I heard the latest album out by Karl Brueggemann. I had no idea what to expect when I downloaded “Sonicesque vol.1”, Karl posted it himself to the ffshrine forums – where I directed my recent article about a vg music canon – and he billed it as he had twiddled around with the sega vst:  so it would sound like new, classic sonic. He was also nice enough to answer a few interview questions, so check that out inside too!

Continue?’s Featured Artist: docjazz4

May 19, 2009

Hey everyone, it’s that time of the week again, time for “Continue?’s Featured Artist!”

Last week, I spoke about a great violinist named Ben Chan. Who, in between playing professionally and teaching, finds time to create YouTube videos of himself playing different video game music.  If you think back to that article (click here to read it), the last video I showed was a collaboration of three different artists: Lypurr, BenChan, and a guy named docjazz4, well this week, it is docjazz4’s turn to be in the limelight!

Let us all travel back to the year 1998, back when Billy C was getting inappropriate in the oval office, Google was founded, boys all across America learned to BE A MAN with the help of Mulan, and two video games systems where on the list of every child. One was the first succesful CD based home video game system, the Play Station, the other, the first succesful 64-bit system, with its crazy baterang like controller, the N-64. That year, Nintendo released what many consider to be one of, if not the, best game ever.

What was that game you ask? Well none other than

“The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”

That game introduced children to a bizarre little instrument, the ocarina. The ocarina is one of the oldest instruments in existence and it is also one of the easiest instruments to play. In ’99, a young boy named Dave purchased an ocarina and began learning how to play. Fast forward to August of 2006, Dave joins YouTube under the name docjazz4, and in December of that year, he releases his first video, seen here.

That is docjazz4 and he is playing the Song of Time from that fateful game. Since then, docjazz4 or should I say Dave, has released over 100 videos and has played songs from Zelda to Halo. In addition to his large collection of videos, Dave owns around 20 ocarinas, ranging from simple 4-holed pendants to 4 chambered ocarinas (a multi chambered Ocarina allows for a wider range of notes to be played).

Since Dave began posting videos, he has become quite the hit on YouTube, having over 25,000 subscribers!

Check out more of Dave’s videos after the break! Read the rest of this entry »
