Listening Recommendation
 Sweet (feat. Elsa & Karin)
Arranged by Markus Schneider & Mahoney


The orchestral stuff is incredible. Hands down some of the best I've heard. I would like to congratulate the participants involved in this. The orchestration, composition, production are all great and demonstrate a level of professionalism that I can only admire. The voice overs and (Karin and Elsa?) angelic vocals also completely fit the piece. As a piece of music, perfect work. Love it, love the nod to Eurythmics. A fantastic piece and one that I will be listening to for a very long time to come. Thank you.

 Sanxion (Oops I remixed it again)
Arranged by Wobbler


I love this mix because it has such a laid-back sound yet still captures the energy of the original. The re-orchestration is a great blend of acoustic & electronic sounds. Wish I could play guitar like Wobbler!

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.

Marcel Donné - Sidologie CD

Sidologie

by Marcel Donne

If Jarre and Vangelis had done C64 music: they would have sounded like this. Highlights include a stunning cover of Rob Hubbard's Knucklebusters, a full length Miami Vice which fills the soul with Martin Galway's rhythmic and arpeggionic genius, and a cheeky "Band in the Rain" tribute with the Wizball High Score Theme. From Jarre to Vangelis, to a sound that reminds you of both but remains unique to Marcel, this album goes way beyond tribute into "soul satisfying". C64 Music has never sounded so evocative.
