The second award went to ROTY award regular daXX as Best Veteran 2016.

The special honour of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2016 was given to Ziphoid for his myriad contributions to the scene, and also to Ben Daglish, who apart from being an original legendary composer of the 80s is still active and around in the scene.

Also SLAY Radio listener Maltus was awarded as Beer-deliverer of the Year as a personal award of the SLAY staff for his extraordinary support (like, you know, actually delivering beer from Germany to the SLAY hq). 😃

Finally, the big moment approached and it was time to award the main price, Remixer Of The Year 2016 and it went to MRT, second year in a row!

MASSIVE CONGRATS!

 Kung-Fu Master (Surf mix)

Arranged by dor-x

I absolutely freakin' love this, no doubt about it. My favourite remix yet this year. You would not believe the smile this bought to my face.

I never had this game for the C64, truth be told. As a kid, with a lot of free time in the summer, I'd be in a lot of the sea-front arcades, playing games like Wonderboy, Pacland and... Kung Fu Master, what else? I wasted a crap-load of ten pence pieces on that machine and loved every second of jumpy, kicky, punchy action. The theme tune has been lodged in my head for years. Which brings me on to this remix.

After a nice floaty synth opening... Just the very warm feeling that spread over me when I heard that familiar tune, played so well on a nice clean guitar. This is Kung Fu Master all right, but it also puts me in mind of Kill Bill and other Tarantino soundtracks. The playing is masterful. Love the solos, the tremolo work, all good. You occasionally sound like you're sruggling to play the main tune fast enough, but thats no biggie. I certainly couldn't play that riff. It all sounds like spot on exploitaion movie OST.

So, to sum up. Thanks dor-x, you've managed to brighten up a shitty month in my life and make me grin like a loon. I love any remix that has guitar sounds like this one. Sort of similar to what I was going for with Times of Lore, only several million times better.

Well done and thank you. I think I'll have to go lie down now...

 Skate or Die Intro Remix

Arranged by Phekkis

When I first heard it, I was sure I've heard this remix before somewhere, but after checking all the other remixes - no I haven't. I guess, all Skate or Die remixes are similar because there are not many ways this tune can be remixed?

This is slightly better than most other remixes, it has a decent instrument selection, but it's neither inspiring, nor powerful despite the presence of electric guitars.

A nice effort, but it needs more oomph.

 Auf Wiedersehen Monty & Commando

For a "Newcomer" this Jeroen guy sounds pretty good to me. Not bad for a first remix, not bad, sir!... Just kidding! :-D Bow to the master! Bow to the master!

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!
