I'd be a huge liar if I didn't say that mc chris was one of the major influences on me moving from being an electronica focused artist to a nerdcore hiphop/electronica artist. I heard MC Frontalot first (thanks to his collab with Kompressor,) and while Front's music did get me motivated to record some stuff, it was probably mc chris' work that really got me thinking "hey, maybe I should make a CD of this stuff. This was even more the case after I did my first remix for him, a very bootleg-sounding remix of "DQ Blizzard" cut up in Acid pH1 which may or may not be the first remix anyone ever did for him. Anyway, mc chris' work really reinforced the thought that I could probably rap about anything I wanted and probably find an audience, and that made me figure I could give a shot.

Of course the remixing didn't stop there - because of my bootleg mix and other cool bootleg mixes, eventually mc chris made acapellas available and started running remix contests, which I effectively over-participated in at points. I mean, 10 remixes of "Hijack"? That was overkill. However, that work really did help sharpen my production skills, and it helped me get in contact with more nerdcore artists and fans. I also think that those contests were one side of developing the talent that'd later be turning up on the RhymeTorrents compilation, atleast in terms of the second generation artists that were on it.

Anyway, I think the remixes hold up pretty well. Even "DQ" is still listenable and catchy in my opinion. These mixes also show my transition from Acid ph1 to Reason 1.1 with SoundForgeXP to Reason 3.0.4 with Audacity, and the overall evolution in my production approach, which is fairly interesting I suppose. Besides, it has awesome rapping from mc chris over it, so how can I really go wrong?

Bonus Notes: Check out last.fm or any other music playlist service, and it's almost insane how much more play these remixes get over the rest my catalog. In fact, just the plays from when my "Chrome Rim Delorean Mix" of "Fett's Vette" was featured on mc chris' myspace is probably more than I've recieved for my own nerdcore stuff. I guess that means I need to make own original tracks more awesome. Also, there are some pretty smart alek references in the remix names. Chalk it up to being a geek and being short on more interesting ideas.
