Massive respects to the FastLoaders!

 

Remixing tunes from The Last Ninja is a tricky business - seemingly everybody remembers them differently. Remixing them in a hard rock style is even trickier - mostly because music from the Last Ninja series has been remixed over and over so many times on RKO already (well over 200 remixes and counting). Yet, the FastLoaders, a group of Last Ninja enthusiasts / rock-band from Norway have managed to do it better than most by treating the tunes with utmost care and respect, with faithful arrangements, and with impeccable mixing.

New C64 SID Album by 8 Bit Weapon!

Greetings Programs!

Our new chipmusic concept album is a collection of ambient music crafted to help facilitate relaxation. Over 1 hour of mind defragmenting tones for you to enjoy! Each sound is hand crafted from the Commodore 64 personal computer's SID sound chip. Portions of the album were co-written by a computer as many of the notes were set to be selected by the CPU at random! All tones have been digitally processed for maximum smoothness and optimum ambiance. Relax and Enjoy!

See what some original SID Composer legends have to say about the album:

It's beautiful... it's a work of art... genius. - Martin Galway

Top notch! I both enjoy and respect it. - David Warhol

Very nice and soothing lengthy 8-bit soundscapes... nice for digital meditation! Nice work ! - Jeroen Tel

So ambient my hips fell off - Ben Daglish

 

Love,

 

Seth & Michelle

 Thrust

Arranged by JB

Holy s---! This is seriously impressive, _the best_ C64 remix so far! Jeroen is obviously a very talented professional. Several solos (piano, sax, guitar) and excellent production makes you turn your head, just to see if there's a live band behind you playing that tune.

Rating: 10+ and then some!

 Test Drive II - The Duel

Arranged by Ferrara

Well, it reminds me a lot of snes top gear music, the synth leads where well used, the drum is a bit dry but in relation to the rest of it is ok.

 Nemesis the Warlock

Arranged by Xenobioz

Several problems here: the arrangement tries to be orchestral, but the individual instruments are not played the way a real orchestra would (the strings are especially cringe-worthy). The arrangement is rather thin to begin with and relies too much on timpani to drive it. The female vocal is a nice touch, although it, too, sounds bad when it's pitched too low or too high. There is also little dynamics in the arrangement which makes the entire tune sound flat.

Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.
