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!

 Giana Sisters (Keep Da Scene Alive)

Arranged by DHS

It seems that SIDs also fits into Techno-style :-)

Technically I would wish for more more length and stereo panorama ;-)
Besides this minimal flaws you get a very impressive tune, keeping the spirit of the original SID - neverless I have expected from DHS. Makke's Scooter-style "speech" makes this remix unique compared to any other Giana Sisters remixes. I wouldn't wonder if this remix could make it into the charts ;-)

Keep Da Scene Alive! :-D

 Ballblazer (feat. Beastie Boys)

Arranged by Romeo Knight

Romeo Knight strike again with a new style but it's not just to say "I can do this too" because it's perfectly done! he knows exactly what he's doing and this is why the rap performance fit perfectly with the main riff of the SID !
"this thing work with this one" and you will not find another C64 riff that could work better.
Of course he could follow the bass with his guitar to sound like many fusion bands but he prefer to let the SID screaming just to say "this chip is not dead,it still alive!!!"

 Supremacy (Overprime mix)

Arranged by SIDNIFY

For me it's impossible to listen to this at anything but full blast. Impeccably arranged, superbly executed. The break at 3:44 is just brilliant. If there's one tiny fault with this remix is that the choir/singing towards the end is barely audible. Other than that, amazing, amazing stuff! You guys have more SID remixes lurking on your SoundCloud page, so please, upload those to RKO, too, don't be shy! :)

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.
