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
 Last Ninja 2 - Central Park (ingame)
Arranged by Puffy64


Okay, first a confession: I really, really, really love the LN2 Central Park tune. It is in my opinion one of the greatest SIDtunes ever made. Nay, the best!
Ever since I first played Last Ninja 2, I had one idea in my mind. "The central park tune needs to be done with a real orchestra."
Far later I got to the net, slowly found sites that had game remixes. Most of them did have remixes of the central park theme, but not good ones. "Let me clarify: Rock. Or heavy metal. *Not* goddamned techno."
And then I found this Puffy's remix (or earlier version of it, actually), and I was completely blown away. Here's a remix of a song that really does *everything* on the song right. It uses instruments well, and leaves the Matt Gray's original guitar voices there in parts (in my opinion, the greatest-sounding synthetic electric guitars ever made =)
The tribute album version is very good also, and in my opinion even more faithful to the original (even when the said synth-guitars were toned down a little).
If there's anything to criticize, it sounds just a little bit cluttered at times. Sounds completely drowning behind the guitars. And I wish the tribute version had had just a little bit more of the said synthguitars.
But even with its flaws... This is how the song should sound like! This is how game remixes should be made! This is how to cut to the essence of SID music!

Yeah.. it's just a blues in fact. Well done, although it keeps being a bit slow-motion. I hoped you included the sound effect that the car made when eh.. a new level was reached (the whoop sound :-)).

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
