OC Remix celebrates 15 years of remixes with more music

OC Remix's eclectic community of musicians has been coating gaming music with fresh, metaphorical coats of genre paint for 15 years now, and they're celebrating their anniversary the only way they know how: by making music. A press release noting the anniversary highlights 15 new remixes that pull source material from 15 different gaming consoles, with source material involving Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and more.

The full list of OC Remix's birthday tracks (as pulled from the press release) can be found after the break, which includes timaeus222's "Let's Bust Some Viruses," a dancy, accumulative opening theme remix from most of the Mega Man Battle Network opening themes, and Tetrimino's "Simply Be-groove-ed," a four-piece band's re-imagining of Kingdom Hearts' opening theme (originally performed by Utada Hikaru).

True to OC Remix's nature, sampling and downloading from this selection is free. Should the anniversary tunes neglect any of your favorite soundtracks, you can always search the vault of work that's cataloged on OC Remix's website.

Happy anniversary, Remixers!
