Mark Visser (Misser) passed away

Misser

On the 22nd of August Mark Visser (alias Misser / Mr.Mad) unexpectedly passed away. As a coder and cracker was responsible for numerous demo's and cracks and was loved by many in the C64 scene as a cuddly, crazy and happy Dutchie. He will be sorely missed. A website has been created in his memory where you can express your condolences or leave any message you wish.

Everything will be printed and personally handed to his family.

Bleep and Destroy by Vincenzo feat. NecroPolo

8-bit bleeps meet crushing metal guitars, synthesizer sounds and love for oldschool computers. These ingredients required to cook on high temperature together and the result is some fine sid-rock,  for the fans of chip'n'roll everywhere!

Subzero's C64 Podcasts to Return!!

Subzero Subzeros C64 Podcasts To Return

After a hiatus of almost 7 years Subzero is bringing back his c64 podcasts!!

 

The podcasts that begun back in 2007 ran for just over a year, with 36 shows being released. And now, after a long rest he's decided to bring them back!

 

Promising to be as true to the original format as before, with special 'themed' shows, Subzero hopes he can bring the listeners back.

 

Podcast no.40 'The Ocean Wave' is due for release in late february/early march and will focus on an array of music from games released by OCEAN software.

Listening Recommendation
 Turrican I End Titles
Arranged by LMan


Fluent and melodic, simply a very well done remix, with a killer bassline. The original was also one of my favourites, back in the days. Awesome!

 Pool Party (FN mix)
Arranged by Xenox


Unfortunately I can\'t really give this much credit points. Anyone can use SID2MIDI, but the important thing is (and is what is most noticeable) is when the arranger doesn\'t double-check the original SID to ensure that all the notes are correct. The program is a really good way to capture the notes, but it doesn\'t handle slides / glides at all, hence if a song uses them and the notes ain\'t corrected, it can ruin your cover.

Remix64 Volume 1: 80s Remixes for the 8-bit Generation

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!
