McVaffe Launches McVaffe.com

McVaffe posted on OverClocked ReMix:

I’m not that comfortable with shameless plugs, but I told people who
have asked me through the years that as soon as I was able to put
together a new site of my new and old work, that I would do so. And so
I have, so here it is:

http://www.mcvaffe.com

So far the site contains the vast majority of my work, much of it which
was created in the late ’90s and early 2000’s when I joined the site
and began submitting remixes. It’s no coincidence that my discovery of
Overclocked led to what was one of my greatest periods of regular
output.

The fact that I owed such a huge debt of gratitude to OCRemix and to
its community members through the years for supporting, inspiring, and
shaping the way I developed my sound led me to post about the site
here. I searched for all of the old original remix WAVs I could find,
and uploaded them in higher bitrates than I originally submitted here.
As well, there are some remixes there that either didn’t fit the
guidelines of OCR, or ones I never quite felt polished enough to
submit.

For any Youtube fans, I spent over a week creating original game
captures and editing videos to some of my remixes, which to me
increases the nostalgia factor tenfold. It was a ton of work but it was
a great experience playing the games again and seeing Sonic snowboard
down a mountain, or Mario chase a giant eel. It reminded me so much of
why I loved games and game music in the first place. Link is below:

Finally, I wanted to share part of a new project I’m working on with a
close friend and artist. It may somewhat be considered an original
album, but the presentation will be revealed once we figure out how we
will put everything together. Short version: It’s a personal project of
original music based on the inspiration of the amazing composers who
originally got me into game music composing and remixing. It’s simple,
sweet, and hopefully will remind listeners of the good old days of
Super NES and PS1 RPGs from which I’ve drawn so much inspiration
through the years. The music can be found on the front of www.mcvaffe.com or from the youtube link.

And as for a new remix, Jimmy Hinson told me to work on Earthworm Jim. And I can’t not listen to Jimmy Hinson now…

Thanks for reading all my crap guys! For those who don’t know I lost my
job of over 11 years about 3 months ago, which was especially hard for
the farewells I had to say to people I’ve spent years working with day
in and day out. The silver lining to that event was the extra time I’m
having to refocus, and work on projects like this. I hope you enjoy the
site, find stuff you like, and that I may continue to create stuff that
you can enjoy in the future. Thanks for reading, and for lending your
ears.

I’ve taken this time to add McVaffe’s website, as well as Anosou’s, to the Artists tab on ThaSauce. I’ll be looking for more artist blogs and websites to add to the pages soon, and if you have any suggestions, be sure to let me know.
