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.
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!
The time has come to celebrate and acknowledge the remixers' work in the C64 community by presenting the yearly ROTY Awards, as voted by the users at www.remix64.com. This year it's SLAY Radio's turn to give out the awards and give you a run-down of what happened in 2016.
As usual the show will be joint-broadcast on SLAY Radio and Scenesat Radio.
The show chat will be on EFNet #remix64
Don't miss it!!

General Conversation • Re: Was the Commodore 64 a quantum leap?
I think with some of these computers, such as C64 and Amiga, we see some decent hardware features for the time. C64, SID and VICII (sprite and scroll), the amiga also had "helper" chips. Today one would call it graphics accelerators, sound cards etc. And these, in a decent typical PC, should be balanced. Unfortunately it seems Amiga didn´t do, (or manage) that later, having its old 8bit soundchip forinstance in Amiga 4000. Which would be like running 8bit soundblaster, in the time of 16 bit gravis etc.. It is rumoured that they did plan a 16bit chip though "Mary", but never came to release it.Statistics: Posted by Datasette Idol — 25/06/2017 - 7:18
C64 / Amiga Remix Releases • Re: Doughnerton Arcade
Ahh, sorry, I cut the channel, due to few views.
I just uploaded a new version of my trap remix here though, for the more specialized crowd. Have Fun!Statistics: Posted by Datasette Idol — 20/06/2017 - 21:21
General Conversation • Re: Project ST-01
Fun read. My comment: 8bit D/A definately has its character. And on the technical side, some might say the direct clocking is better than many one-bit converters. (Who require extremely high rates, and thus get a different character with inaccuracies, many will say worse - muddy midrange etc.) Vintage dream for many is ofourse 8-bit samples with analog filter, getting a very 80s sound. And in these 8-bit samples times on c64, maybe it can do a good job with that too, lol.Statistics: Posted by Datasette Idol — 19/06/2017 - 11:23
Work In Progress, remix suggestions, and musicians talk • Re: 303 for DIY
The c64 version is done several times, I think. Though since some SIDs have small headroom for resonance maybe one should consider pulsewave instead as oscillator, to get a bit more headroom.Statistics: Posted by Datasette Idol — 19/06/2017 - 10:44
General Conversation • Re: jealousy, bitterness and idiocy
Hey Lman, great sids.
- I think a lot of people have worked to voice some reasonable opinion on this, also ofcourse resulting in flamewords like "troll", "fanboi", and the now less used "lamer", etc. But sometimes these phrases are abused, and it can be a bit difficult to see who is who. It all really comes down to the darkness of idols, why is why I (jokingly) chose my username "datasette idol". Thus one can appreciate monotheism for civilized behaviour, which the online version of is ofcourse "netiquette". Even then ofcourse sometimes people can loose their temper and some real nasty cases of that we see haunting for instance places like LKML. Statistics: Posted by Datasette Idol — 19/06/2017 - 10:32

The Last SLAY Radio Gathering!
<strong>Friday August 4th to Sunday August 6th 2017</strong> is the first weekend of August, which means it's the SLAY Radio Gathering! It is also the last of the Gatherings - the number of people coming along is slowly going down as more and more people say "I'll go next year instead." Well, this is both next AND final year! The usual is happening - the Unofficially Official Pre-Gathering Gathering on Friday evening, the Barbecue and Main Event on Saturday and the farewells on Sunday! A map is <a href="https://goo.gl/XBZtnK" target="_blank">available here</a> which shows all the main locations, airports, and train / bus / tram stops that are important. The hotel pin also has a handy link to find all nearest hotels in the area! There is also a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/195778934282912" target="_blank">Facebook Event</a> for those of you who use that particular behemoth of social media - for the main evening event anyway. We hope to see you there at the last Gathering!

by PRESS PLAY ON TAPE
PRESS PLAY ON TAPE are legends. This is their third studio CD, and it's a doozy, combining kick-your-bottom C64 remixes with original brain-beatingly good tracks. Although obliterated from Wikipedia by pedants who can't cope with reality, there's no keeping these guys down! Rock on!! 26 tracks of mayhem, a double CD, over 2 hours of music! Comes with a 32 page souvenir booklet, packed with photos of Soren. And some other guys, not sure who they are, but they look dodgy to me... *hehe* This album is not available to buy from us digitally, only from iTunes, but FLAC and MP3 Album packs are downloadable when you purchase the CD. * Note: all preorders have now been sent out * "PPOT delivers exactly what is expected of them, and their fans will love this CD. New fans will without doubt take it to their hearts too, because no matter if you're a fan of vocals on remixes or not, there's plenty of music to enjoy." - Andreas Wallstrom, C64.com
