OCReMix and 8-bit Weapon Reset Generation remixing contest

Recently OCReMix and 8-bit Weapon contacted me with news of a remix contest for folks in the VG Remix and Arrangement community! Check out the full thread about the contest at this OCR thread or read the info below from 8-bit Weapon themselves.

We're teaming up with Overclocked Remix AND Nokia to hook up the artist who can do the best job of remixing and interpreting our Reset Generation Soundtrack! The Reset Generation soundtrack was composed using primarily a Commodore 64 and a Nintendo NES. There are 21 Tracks to remix and there are midi files available for each track!

Besides getting their ReMix posted to OCR as our first N-Gage mix, we have delivered an amazing phone hookup courtesy of Nokia.
