ROTY 2014 Awards Results

ROTY Trophy 2014

The awards show kicked off on February, 7th at 8pm at the SLAY Radio headquarters in Gothenburg. It was hosted by Slaygon, Boz and Leoni, who in the tradition of the ROTY awards show, began with a run down of scene happenings and people's favourite remixes of each month.

The first price that was announced went to Robert Engstrand for  Best Newcomer, who was interviewed on the show via skype.

Best Amiga Remix was awarded to Scene Veteran Instant Remedy for his  "Pinball Dreams - Nightmare" remix.

Mordi was this year's winner for Best Veteran, making him the first person ever to win in all the ROTY categories at least once.

Show host Slaygon won the award for Best C64 Remix 2014 with his remix  Platoon (Inexperti belli).

The main award Remixer of the Year 2014 was finally awarded to druu, who was called via Skype to celebrate his victory live on air.

At the show's finale, an audibly affected Boz was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his numerous contributions to the scene since its very beginnings.

 

Congratulations everyone...

...and as always, there are only winners on these lists. Bravo!:-)

Listening Recommendation
 Chimera (Standfast Remix)
Arranged by Phil Bak


The two tunes from Chimera have always been some of my favorite c64 tunes, and Phil Bak does a wonderful job with this remix of the high score tune. It sticks very close to the original which is not a bad thing, and the preacher at the end of the tune is almost enough to make me wish I was in church on a sunday morning. Excellent job.

 Eliminator (edit)
Arranged by Oedipus


this is interesting, but the instrumentation is much too mechanical and punchy.

However, it's a good original take on the tune. It's always good to remember that really anything goes when a remake is concerned, it's a matter of being tasteful though. At least you got the idea that it is a funk tune tho! Good try, and I agree on the punchy instrumentation, but not THAT punchy!!!! I don't want a bloody nose...

Remix64 Volume 2: Into Eternity

Remix64 - Into Eternity

by Various Artists

The original "Remix64" title referred more to the community embracing the remixers than the content of the CD. And so it was that Remix64 - Into Eternity turned into a symphonic epic not a million miles away from the popular Merregnon series of CDs: there certainly is a teutonic air to much of the album. Highlights of the CD include Markus Holler's spine-tingling reworking of "Fist 2" with flute and ethereal vocals, and Thomas Detert's "Spellbound" which gives life to Rob Hubbard's own dark vision for the piece. Belying the computery artwork of the cover, this CD is a powerful piece of fantasy soundtrack more than it is a remix CD. Enjoy it at that level, and be blown away.
