Hey all, it was about time for a design overhaul of our beloved Remix64.com.

 

The new layout is tidy and works with your mobile.

 

Mind that there are still a lot of sub-pages (Tracks, Remixer infos) that need to be redone to work in your phone. This will happen little by little, so thanks for your patience.

Remix64

by Various Artists

Remix64 is a CD with a unique concept: how would 80s stars interpret Commodore 64 remixes? Since they weren't particularly interested in telling us, some of the brightest talents in the remix scene were used to imagine. 80s lives! This CD also showcases the talents of the prolific David Whittaker. Highlights include incredibly uplifting versions of Whittaker's Glider Rider and Storm, an incredible Depeche-Mode-does-Nemesis from Wobbler and LMan, two Ocean Loaders from Jarre's unacknowledged lost son Marcel Donné, and a sensitive and poetic Art of Noise soundscape from Thomas Detert, covering his own ironically named C64 tune "Hyper Aggressive" The 80s live! Long live the 80s!

Listening Recommendation

 Lightforce 2002

Arranged by Allister Brimble

Since the release of 'Alien Breed' in 1991 on the Amiga, I was astonished and fascinated about that piece of work Allister Brimble had delivered there. And about how deep and lovely a tune could come to.
Just to mention: I'm a child of the very first days of Atari2600, C64 and Atari800XL. Although these days, I never played 'Lightforce'... on not any system.

Today, a few weeks ago, I heard Brimble's remake of that game music (and of course the "good old .sid", to get a compare) and instantly felt in love with it. It is, indeed, a modern remix. Still electronic, still fast and still none sort of a "chartz-like-one" you can hear all the fu****g day on your Radio... It's strictly bound to the rythmn of the original, but with more love. More love, for the old times. More in-depth. Where the music more touched your sense, your soul, than your money-bag. I think it is made with love... somehow.

But... to come to a conclusion:
If you like harmonic (Jean Michel Jarre) and rythmic tunes in a modern, fast and trancey good old way, this one is definately one you should hear!

Yet, still, I get a bumpy condition of my skin, when listening to this awesome track... :-)

Thank you, Allister Brimble!! Thank you!!

 IK+ (Firestorm remix)

Arranged by Firestorm

Technically this remix is excellent, but then again I wouldn’t expect anything less from professional of this caliber. Hubbard’s classic tune is kept intact, but I wish it was slightly louder. Now it tends to disappear under the weight of added instruments and explosive beat – which by the way certainly deliver. There’s also a slight feeling of repetition, but this is countered by expertly crafted nuances for careful listeners. However, I still think that lead solo or something could have done wonders here. (It’s been awhile since I heard the original melody so I can’t reliably compare the two.) Final build-up feels like a C-part and creates anticipation for returning beat that disappointingly never comes. Obviously this remix doesn’t want to mess with original source, but I don’t think it brings the best out of it either. And that’s probably the hardest thing to achieve in a remix. In any case, this one makes me want to turn up the sound - impressive entrance from Firestorm and I definitely want to hear more from him. Someone this capable can do amazing stuff.

 International Karate Part I (Synthwave Remix)

Arranged by Strange Days

It's a nice retrofuturustic treatment of Hubbard's track. The mix heavily favors the high-end throughout, which bothers me a bit. The arrangement really gets going after the full set of drums come in at 1:53, that got my hopes up high. However, the chords at 2:46 sound odd to me, both in texture and pitch, and they broke the illusion a bit. The entire track reminds me a lot of Tangerine Dream's albums from the 80s, which I think is the style Strange Days was actually going for. Nicely done!
