Best Amiga Remix was awarded to Scene Veteran Instant Remedy for his  "Pinball Dreams - Nightmare" remix.

Mordi was this year's winner for Best Veteran, making him the first person ever to win in all the ROTY categories at least once.

Show host Slaygon won the award for Best C64 Remix 2014 with his remix  Platoon (Inexperti belli).

The main award Remixer of the Year 2014 was finally awarded to druu, who was called via Skype to celebrate his victory live on air.

At the show's finale, an audibly affected Boz was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his numerous contributions to the scene since its very beginnings.

Reviews

Listening Recommendation
 R-Type (Doppelganger Summer Remix)
Arranged by Lagerfeldt


This IS a professional electronic music. Mellow solo instruments with a nice sinthy-pop feeling, melting together in excellent harmony with the breakbeat drums!

 Be There (Caribian Dreams)
Arranged by Chabee


This remix reminds me of the 90's electronic music with some Jan Hammer thrown in there. I really like the intro! The bass could be stronger and the bell-like backing a little softer, but overall it's a great piece of work.

 Bombo
Arranged by Johan Andersson


If I was going to suggest one change, it could start quieter, and end quieter, and there's a missed opportunity to go absolutely huge-ass-power-ballad in the middle.

Back In Time 2 CD

Back in Time 2

by Various Artists

Back in Time 1 broke a lot of ground, so the sequel aimed to raise the bar. The second album used some extraordinary talent such as Peter Connelly, Jogeir Liljedahl, Tonka and Danko to provide a much more varied soundscape than the first. Highlights include the beautiful orchestral version of "Forbidden Forest", the ultimate feel-good remix "Wizball 2000" and the spine-tingling "Galway is God" Rambo/Green Beret medley, as well as featuring a remastering of the first ever C64 Remix: Rob Hubbard's own "Thalamusik" from Zzap!64 issue 26. Round that off with an extended club mix of Comic Bakery and Fred Gray's own funky interpretation of his own Batman theme, and you've got a CD which still stands the test of time today.
