Musical Attack Monday: Dale North.

   0


Video games and music has always formed a great union, classic melodies and incredible compositions has been one of my favorite things on gaming. On Musical Attack Monday I will present people who do covers and remixes from video game music and I hope you enjoy it. If you have any suggestion or any idea to improve this series, just let me know.

In the past week I have found a lot of great remixers, but I just discovered that our good editor Dale North is one as well! I don't know the man himself or what he does or bla bla bla, but I've been pretty impressed by his work, that I can tell. As reading his myspace, he has been doing music since he was a preteen, and have many other projects.

Ok, let's get into what he does. Mr. North doesn't have a pre-determined style when doing gaming remixes, but, if I had to define a style, that would be experimental. One of my favorites is the song "Needles", a collab between many other remixers, which is a remix of the Stage Theme of Needleman from Megaman 3. It has a latino groove with a touch of salsa that is simply genius.

Another favorite is Super Mario Sleigh's Ride, which is another collab, with a X-mas theme. This remix is a great Christmas Jazzy style, but with many Mario songs, specially Super Mario World. He can also create sweet melodies like the song "Dale of the Wind", that is, a remix of Valley of the Wind from Xenogears, where the strings and piano will touch your heart with this pro work. Mr.North can get a little bit to experimental at times, as in the the song "SwinginPornoMix", from Super Mario Bros.3, delivering the comedy in music, adding some moans and..other stuff, just listen to it.

If you want to check his work, go to his page at Ocremix that can be found here. He is also the co-founder of The Oneups, another gaming music band, which also have an approach to different styles and many of their works are incredible (just check Castlevania 3 Clockwork rendition, just do it). Their homepage can be found here. He is also a singer, with a contemporary pop (at least that's what he says on his MySpace). His latest album was "Right Out of the Blue". If you want to hear a bit of his project go to his Myspace that is here.

Mr. North has a prominent future, even though it seems he's more focused on his singer career now, I would love to see more remixes (after all that's what this article is about). Still, I hope he get to his goal, whatever it is...

....More remixes plz.
