ROTY Trophy 2016

On sunday, 19th February 2017, the awards show started broadcasting at 20:00 CET from the SLAY Radio headquaters, hosted by Boz, Slaygon and Leonie. The show featured a run down of the last year's events and popular remixes of each months, with award announcements inbetween.

The Best Newcomer 2016 award was announced and went to Armandox.

The second award went to ROTY award regular daXX as Best Veteran 2016.

Best Amiga Remix 2016 was awarded to Rapture for his epic Pinball Prelude Medley.

Best c64 Remix 2016 went to Mordi for his updated version of Why Me.

The special honour of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2016 was given to Ziphoid for his myriad contributions to the scene, and also to Ben Daglish, who apart from being an original legendary composer of the 80s is still active and around in the scene.

Also SLAY Radio listener Maltus was awarded as Beer-deliverer of the Year as a personal award of the SLAY staff for his extraordinary support (like, you know, actually delivering beer from Germany to the SLAY hq). 😃

Finally, the big moment approached and it was time to award the main price, Remixer Of The Year 2016 and it went to MRT, second year in a row!

MASSIVE CONGRATS!

 Liljedahl is God (Green Beret+Rambo)

Arranged by Mordi

i really love the tracker file that i have of this piece. this rmx takes it to the same level with some additional fills like the vocoder like female hook. the bass goes deep and the lead cares a very feelfull mood. a bit dull in two arrangment parts of it imho, could be a bit brighter. the whole tune is very atmospheric and transparent. everytime i get lifted by this tune. if you like soulfull music, this one is a "have to have it".

 Alibi (steady-state remix)

Arranged by Patrick [Major Minor] Ceuppens

Thanks for doing one of the classics. Laxity has always been one of my favourites, and too few people look in the direction of the demo-scene and non-gamemusic.

I think you captured the mood very well, and I enjoy this version as much as I enjoy the original. Very balanced sound, though not especially original. But then again, many of Laxity's tunes are close to perfect. So why alter them just for the sake of doing it? You've managed to make this tune sound better than it did on solo sid, without destroying the melody and feel. That's an accomplishment by itself.

After listening to this for a long time now, I have to give full marks on grounds of the nostalgic impression and balanced sound. This is wonderful listening!

 Yo! Joe! - Haunted House

Arranged by Rapture

This is a brilliant remix of the original, keeping to the original style, but with modern instruments and high quality. Exactly what Amiga Remix is all about. Very well done, seems a little faster than the original but that's OK.
