Back at MAGFest 9, I saw these guys preform at an OCR panel as OCR live. It didn’t take long for the audience to experience the raw power these guys produced. Back then, Connor “Cyril the Wolf” Pelkey filled in as the Bass for OCR Live, but it was obvious that something unique had been created with the combo of these four instruments. I have to say, they are one of the sexiest acts I had seen at MAGFest. I fell in love.
OverClocked University is comprised of Steve Bortz (Level 99) and Andrew Luers (OA), both guitarists, along with the Bass played by Deia Vengen (DragonAvenger), and the violin by Amy Hsieh (diotrans). Ander and Steveo are the principle arrangers while Deia and Amy will help in arranging for the band in the near future. I look forward to what they will release next, I can’t help but feel like they are holding back some awesome tunes for the coming concert at Magfest XI.
A quick look at their Overclocked Remix of their Donkey Kong Country remix hints at what kind of post-rock remixes they are capable of making, the mellow rhythm reminds me a lot of Pink Floyd. I wonder if they’ll play something more psychedelic for their debut at MAGFest XI. Be sure to catch them on Friday at the Second Stage. If you like what you heard, like them on their Facebook page. And if anyone from Magfest has attended the OCR panels and have caught a glimpse of them playing live, I’m wondering what you think of their post-rock sound?
