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
 Golden Axe Title
Arranged by daXX


Daxx, the world is bad, but I don't think that deserves the punish of not having another remix from you yet.

I expect everything from you. Your talen can remix a theme into a Tecno, epic ore whatever one.

I do prefer this one. It is amazing to realize that a not very fit original soundtrack can be an absorvent melody worth of Polidouris.

 Ghosts n Goblins Valse (Lost Chopin Recording)
Arranged by Bluefugue


I think this remix deserves a lot more credit thatn what it got when it was released... It is indeed funny :-D It's only one minute long but the idea is brilliant and the old scratchy record sound completes the picture... Thumbs up for a great idea well done...

Remix64 V3 Syntax Era

Syntax Era - Remix64 Volume 3

by Remix64 Team

Pure Geek-cheek! Take famous 80s tracks such as 19, Two Tribes, Too Shy, Billy Jean, Broken Wings and I Feel Love, painstakingly recreate the sound, and inject that into classic C64 music such as BMX Kidz, Comic Bakery, Sanxion, Arkanoid and Ghouls and Ghosts. Remixes come from amazing talent: Romeo Knight, LMan, Makke, Tom Detert, Tron, Moog, Binster, Ziphoid, Boz, Sonic Wanderer, Tonka, Skitz, Trace, Slaygon, iFadeo and even (gasp) a guest appearances here and there from Chris Abbott. You'll wonder how we could get away with such a cheeky tribute to the 80s: well, no samples from the original tracks were used, and the musical content has been replaced by the C64 tune covered. The CD also features some really great songs in their own right, which result from a perfect match between C64 melodies and hooks, the sound of SID, and classic 80s instrumentation, such as Ace II, Jethro Walrus, Aspar Grand Prix, and Dominator. The CD was the baby of Markus "LMan" Klein, who acted as Co-ordinator, remixer, artist and layout, and even made his own tea, ably assisted by Tom Detert who did much of the mastering. CD is in now shipping! Tracks are available in high quality VBR MP3 and FLAC (all non-DRM).
