Listening Recommendation
 1942 (Orchestral)
Arranged by Miguel F Ettema


I think this is quite possibly the best remix ever done.

Everything is pretty much perfect.

Takes the original and makes is golden.

I don't know how some of you guys only rate this as good for minor things, I've seen good remixes sound nowhere near what this manages to pull off. Good for not being perfect? C'mon!

 Rasputin (Rob Rulez Remix)
Arranged by Sascha Theel


Sounds like something that was made on a cheap Casio synth which has all those auto-accompaniment features. Seriously! Not bad, but nothing to get excited about. Keeps it high-speed throughout the remix which makes it enjoyable.

Great remix of one of my favourite video-game music. Guitars are great. The singed part is not my favourite part but it's ok.

Remix64 Volume 1: 80s Remixes for the 8-bit Generation

Remix64

by Various Artists

Remix64 is a CD with a unique concept: how would 80s stars interpret Commodore 64 remixes? Since they weren't particularly interested in telling us, some of the brightest talents in the remix scene were used to imagine. 80s lives! This CD also showcases the talents of the prolific David Whittaker. Highlights include incredibly uplifting versions of Whittaker's Glider Rider and Storm, an incredible Depeche-Mode-does-Nemesis from Wobbler and LMan, two Ocean Loaders from Jarre's unacknowledged lost son Marcel Donné, and a sensitive and poetic Art of Noise soundscape from Thomas Detert, covering his own ironically named C64 tune "Hyper Aggressive" The 80s live! Long live the 80s!
