Jordan Steven, know throughout the VGM community as bLiNd, has been producing top-notch video game remixes for years. Best known for his trance remixes on Overclocked Remix, he has just released a new project in a new direction. The Lost Angelic Chronicles of Frane: Dragons’ Odyssey is the original soundtrack to an iOS JRPG. Jordan first soundtrack, Dragons’ Odyssey is truly remarkable, with expressive arrangements in 38 moving tracks. This is a far cry from Jordan’s previous EDM-style game remixes, with expansive soundscapes, moods and instrumentation.
BLiND TRANCE originated as a video game remix set performed at the 2010 Otakon anime convention. Six weeks after it’s debut performance it’s released as a full-length mixtape, featuring 11 hard-hitting trance/dance/rave tracks by none other than OCRemix‘s legendary trance producer bLiNd.
This was my first time taking vocal samples from a single source, the Mega Man Animated Series. I found that by working with a single source, mixing the samples was much simpler. After I had found compressor and reverb settings I liked, I was able to use them for every sample without needing much adjustment. It also seems to make more sense in the mix, with all the samples being processed the same and having a similar sound quality. I’ve got to say I’m pretty impressed with some of the voiceover performances in this series, I’ll be definitely pulling more as time goes on.
