Listening Recommendation
 Druid 2
Arranged by Instant Remedy


This tune probably became more popular as a remixed intro than as actual game music. Fairly plain and melodic, but still quite charming in it's own way. Then along comes Instant Remedy. This remix still manages to remix cool and laid back but adds so much more. A fantastic remix and the built up drum beat make this an Instant 'Classic'. Simply very listenable and with the added chord backing and wonderfull bass sound make this a really smart mix.

 Alibi (steady-state remix)
Arranged by Patrick [Major Minor] Ceuppens


Thanks for doing one of the classics. Laxity has always been one of my favourites, and too few people look in the direction of the demo-scene and non-gamemusic.

I think you captured the mood very well, and I enjoy this version as much as I enjoy the original. Very balanced sound, though not especially original. But then again, many of Laxity's tunes are close to perfect. So why alter them just for the sake of doing it? You've managed to make this tune sound better than it did on solo sid, without destroying the melody and feel. That's an accomplishment by itself.

After listening to this for a long time now, I have to give full marks on grounds of the nostalgic impression and balanced sound. This is wonderful listening!

 Turrican Medley (1-3 Main Theme)
Arranged by Mano


Totally unexpected action movie style arrangement. It didn't sound very special in the beginning, but after listening for a while (at very loud volume by accident, which seemed to be a good thing), it just knocked my socks off.

Necropolo: raKBIT

RAKBIT

by NecroPolo

NecroPolo has produced a stunning album which is built on a vintage prog-sound: from hard as nails to Rhodes-heaven, NecroPolo has got beneath the skin of the pieces and created something which is totally authentic to their spirit.
As if that wasn't enough, this album features the first ever C64-executable album cover, complete with classic scrolltext and the original SIDs that appear on the album, in one PRG!
And if THAT wasn't enough, this demo contains the first ever usage of a revolutionary new SID encoding format which enables any complexity of SID to be played back with minimal raster time, no matter how complex the player! Named SIDRIP, this routine was produced by Hermit specially for this demo, because pieces such as Scoll Machine or Rimrunner needed to feature in this demo, and their players were far too difficult to squeeze into a one-file demo.
