Remixer Of The Year 2013 RESULTS!

ROTY Trophy 2013

The joint broadcast of the ROTY 2013 show launched on time at 20:00 CET on Saturday, 25th of January 2014. The show was hosted by SceneSat radio, and broadcast over the stations, SceneSat, SLAY Radio, Nectarine, BitJam, Radio6581 and The SID Station.

Starting off the show with some excellent music from the monthly charts toppers of 2013, the first award was given away at 20:30 to the best newcomer of the year 2013. The winner of that category was druu, who was quickly dubbed druucomer by CZ-Tunes at the IRC channel. Ranks 2 and 3 where won by Mario Barbierato and rdmusic.

Accompanied by unexpected technical problems on the server side, which fortunately where sorted out quickly, the winner for Best Veteran was announced -  daXX, who had won in the same category in 2012. He was followd up by Mordi and Instant Remedy.

The two lifetime achievement awards 2013 were given to Reyn Ouwehand and Marcel Donné. Both have been active in the scene for ages, working in the demoscene, on the radio stations, on stage, and besides, both are outstanding producers.

There was a shared #1 for best Amiga Remix with 46 points each, Mano's "FlashBack" remix and Daxx's remix of "GODS", with chabee placing 2nd with "Stardust Memories.

Winner of Best c64 Remix was LukHash for his "SPY vs SPY" live remix, very closely followed by druu and his "Wizardry" remix and Peacemaker with "Fawn of Creation".

Finally, the big bounty, the Remixer of The Year 2013 award was also won by daXX with massive 226 points. YouTube wizard LukHash came in second with 116 points. 3rd place went to Rune-Bertil's, who are famous for their swing style remixes.

Congratulations to all the winners!!

Listening Recommendation
 Cauldron II - I am a Pumpkin Man
Arranged by trauma


This tune is pretty awesome for several reasons: first it's an excellent blend
of a capella vocals and a heavier rhythmic overlay. Second, I find it very
funny - if you don't smile when this cover starts, you are not getting the
joke or you never played the game. This is because the vocals actually make
sense! Third, it has a very good progression to it: it starts in a humorous
way with only vocals. Then a hard rock singer's voice comes over all this as
frustration builds. Then the rhythmic overlay provides even more drama. After
a short and very appropriate bridge section - which features Kraftwerkish
drums - the tune culminates in a crazy organized chaos that sounds similar to
a heavy metal concert mostly because of the presence of heavily distorted
electric guitars. I find the result absolutely ingenious! It's an excellent,
excellent piece!

"I am pumpkin man!"

ADDENDUM: Recently I've been listening a lot to this awesome tune, thanks to re-discovering it on the BIT Live DVD. My only gripe about it now is that when the purely a cappella part ends and the drums kick in, the signature base of the original tune ("I am a Pumpkin Man and I'll be jumping... jump, jump, jump, jump, jump") is no more. That's a bit of a shame, but I still think the remix is awesome as is. Can't get enough of Pumpkin Man!

PS: This will be played a lot on Halloween night to scare the trick-or-treating kids...

 Last Ninja 3 (Horizon mix)
Arranged by Mythology


First off, I don\'t know what this tune has to do with TMR, it\'s clearly a Last Ninja 3 subtune #10 remix. TMR\'s SID remix of it is not even the same subtune (that\'s #6)... Anyhoo...

Love the guitar work, really deep, great riffs, well mixed. The drum pattern is too simple, though, that needs work.

I like the light break in the middle, but overall I have mixed feelings about the arrangement, it sounds a bit confusing.

All in all, pretty good job, hope there\'s more to come!

Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.
