ROTY 2014 Awards Results

ROTY Trophy 2014

The awards show kicked off on February, 7th at 8pm at the SLAY Radio headquarters in Gothenburg. It was hosted by Slaygon, Boz and Leoni, who in the tradition of the ROTY awards show, began with a run down of scene happenings and people's favourite remixes of each month.

The first price that was announced went to Robert Engstrand for  Best Newcomer, who was interviewed on the show via skype.

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.

 

Congratulations everyone...

...and as always, there are only winners on these lists. Bravo!:-)

Listening Recommendation
 Cauldron II (Besen Mix)
Arranged by The 909Sadist


909 Sadist has done a great job here, joining filtered sid, synth sounds and a punchy electronic beat. The result is something that would rock the house and techno dancefloors for sure. The mixdown sounds very professional.

Describe this mix in one word? Techno!

 JT In Space (Twolegs Remix)
Arranged by Metal


I listened to this song about 100 Times or even more. Running through my daily playlists every time JT in Space comes up my face takes a smiling position. This track has all that is needed to make a listener happy. Sounds with a nostalgic flare and a modern rhythm with a bodytouching beat. I think you cannot listen to often to this track.

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
