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.

Listening Recommendation
 Firelord - Symphonic
Arranged by Glyn R Brown


How glyn managed to make this awesome rendition of firelord sound so good in fruityloops is beyond me! but the facts say it for themselves, this was created in fruityloops using only average quality samples. But the key thing here is glyn's ability for music just shines through!

The point is that i doubt glyn could ever do better than this in this current configuration. So what happens now, he goes and buy's himself a monster keyboard and the future of glyn is even brighter... The future's bright, the futures Brown :-)

 Great Giana Sisters (PTTM Distortion Remix)
Arranged by Sonic Wanderer


This is my first review on any song and I had to simply write one before I bust! A simply awesome remix of the Great Giana Sisters, probably the best! I had to write this review because I just noticed that everytime I'm coding, Sonic Wanderer's name is always in my Winamp panel. Most of his remixes are most mind stimulating to code by! I think I've listened to most of his remix songs at least 100x each. Hey Sonic Wanderer do you have a homepage ? Do you need any donations for future work? This music puts to shame the crapt on MTV as it must be true that the RIAA is killing real musicians like this one and the many others in the C64/Amiga/MOD remix and original music scene.

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.

Crystal Dreamscapes CD

Crystal Dreamscapes

by Chris Abbott

One of the most innovative Commodore remix CDs ever created. Beautiful and inspiring, it delivers a stream of uninterrupted consciousness ideal for programming, chilling, or even soothing a child! Most tracks on this CD are based on Commodore 64 tunes, though the names of the tracks have been changed so as to enhance its universal appeal, and to avoid puncturing the delicate reality it spins. Highlights include the liquid crystalline cavern sound of Chimera (Here called "Liquid Crystal"), melancholy transforming to joy in "Trap" (here called "Dusk before Dawn"), and the ultimate joy of two Tim Follin LED Storm reworks. Priced to fulfil its spiritual mission!
