ROTY 2016 Awards - Show Report

ROTY Trophy 2016

On sunday, 19th February 2017, the awards show started broadcasting at 20:00 CET from the SLAY Radio headquaters, hosted by Boz, Slaygon and Leonie. The show featured a run down of the last year's events and popular remixes of each months, with award announcements inbetween.

The Best Newcomer 2016 award was announced and went to Armandox.

The second award went to ROTY award regular daXX as Best Veteran 2016.

Best Amiga Remix 2016 was awarded to Rapture for his epic Pinball Prelude Medley.

Best c64 Remix 2016 went to Mordi for his updated version of Why Me.

The special honour of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2016 was given to Ziphoid for his myriad contributions to the scene, and also to Ben Daglish, who apart from being an original legendary composer of the 80s is still active and around in the scene.

Also SLAY Radio listener Maltus was awarded as Beer-deliverer of the Year as a personal award of the SLAY staff for his extraordinary support (like, you know, actually delivering beer from Germany to the SLAY hq). 😃

Finally, the big moment approached and it was time to award the main price, Remixer Of The Year 2016 and it went to MRT, second year in a row!

MASSIVE CONGRATS!

 Virocop: Funny Old Game

Arranged by Allister Brimble

Well done Allister, what a remake! Thank you for such a masterpiece. So much memories behind this music. A very nice work. Maybe you will decide to remake other musics from this game ? ;-)

 Hardwired (Extended Version)

Arranged by DeAdLy_cOoKiE

You must be really good to try remix something like Hardwired module. It is like an anthem to the Amiga/Demo society and you must be a really first league composer to try make covers of something like Silents' "The One" Song. :-)

Fortunately it is not a bad remix. In fact it is quite good, and though some instruments are not always ideal final effect is OK and very well represents original tune. There is only one serious, very serious problem with this remix - speed. This remix is too fast (not a big problem here for me - we live in a wild dance techno times), but even more important - it is too high pitched. It sounds like original Hardwired played on too fast mod-player. If you remember, original mod melody has kind of dark majesty, so with this remix we have Darth Vader speaking after helium breath. :-)

Summary: now 5/10, with a little work could have 8 out f 10. Anyway, thanks go to DeAdLy_cOoKiE for this one.

 Artillery (demo music)

Arranged by MRT

Possibly the best SID tune of the modern era, taken in a new direction. I had started work on a cover of this myself, but you've done a lot more with it than I ever could. I only ever imagined it done with guitars, but although this isn't the remix I had been waiting for, it's nice that someone did it so well.

Back in Time 3

by Various Artists

A five-star journey in space and time inspired by the music of the C64. Unique two part booklet gives information about the tracks, and presents a story outline synchronised with the CD to enhance listening pleasure. Highlights include the epic symphonic "Trap", featuring performances from both Ben Daglish and Mark "madfiddler" Knight, the hell-for-leather technological sound of "One Man and his Droid", and three extraordinary versions of "Zoids". The package is topped off by the amazing artwork of Mat Recardo, Arvid Weber and Steve Barrett.
