Larry "Liontamer" Oji has been a judge at OverClocked ReMix since July 2004, having evaluated more than 2,500 submissions. Reporting to site founder David "djpretzel" Lloyd, Larry is responsible for primary submissions evaluations, informational database maintenance and other otherwise sundry & unsexy tasks at OCR, becoming head submissions evaluator in June 2006.

Oji also contributes to VGMdb, appointed a Trusted Editor in December 2007 and promoted to Staff in February 2008. His work at VGMdb concentrates on free digital release albums by doujins/fan arrangers based in North America and Europe.

Larry also hosted the VG Frequency radio program for 4 years out of Atlanta's Emory University, focused on rearranged VGM and original compositions from the ReMixing community.

Larry’s dream job is to host a nationally syndicated radio program on video game music, which he considers the greatest and broadest genre of music in the world. Among his favorite video game composers include Tim Follin and Yasuhisa “Yack” Watanabe.

Oji worked through OC ReMix as assistant music director for the remixed soundtrack of Capcom’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, developed by Backbone Entertainment.

Larry is currently recruiting artists for the Tim Follin tribute project "Dirge for the Follin," as well as writers for the VG Frequency blog. His own musical attempts, though irregular, have been considered godly. Larry currently resides in Atlanta, GA with The Lady, Paige.
