This year’s Freshly Baked ReMixer challenge, and we’re holding a listening party tomorrow at 6PM PST/ 9PM EST so everyone can have a chance to listen to the songs everyone has been working on over the past 2 months. The listening party will be held in #thasauce on irc.enterthegame.com.
Way back in 2002 a forum user name “I Like Cookies!” (now just Jeff), ran a 1-shot competition called the Freshly Baked ReMixer challenge. In the thread artists signed up and were assigned challenges posted by other forum users. This is how artists like myself, Suzumebachi, and GLL all got our starts. There were also some other impressive tracks by Disco Dan and a few others.
Some time later the same user did the Second Annual FBRC which, while not as popular as the first one, still saw some solid success.
Since the competition has long been forgotten by most, and seeing all the talent that’s on OCReMix today, I think it’s time we try a revival.
For my info on the FBRC check out the thread on OverClocked ReMix.
This week on Radio Free Gamer we will feature an interview with rock artist Henrik Lidbjork (aka Mutherpluckin’ B) about his latest Nintendo cover album and his plans for the future, including the band he recently formed! As usual, we will also feature great, free video game music, our win and fail of the week, and the latest scoops. Join us for Radio Free Gamer this Wednesday at 7PM EST, only at 8bitx.com.
Also (if you didn’t know), you can follow @justinj212 via Twitter for updates and send a tweet his way with your wins/fails of the week, you can join us on facebook at the Radio Free Gamer group, and send any requests or questions to [email protected]
