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!

 Krakout

Arranged by SIDrip Alliance

Here's what I really like about this remix: its pace. It's madly fast - just like the original!

Here's the second thing I really like about this remix: it's live (mostly). In fact, it's -a-live: you can taste that it's people playing great music for people who are willing to listen.

Here's what I don't like about this remix: the mix sounds a bit overcompressed to me. Maybe because the chords played by the synth seemingly disappear behind a metal cage. But in general I feel its flavor is suppressed a bit too much.

And again, here's what I really like about this remix: its fast pace! It's just mad, crazy - it's wonderful!

 Commando (feat. Makke)

Arranged by Romeo Knight

This is as close to how I always imagined Commando as it can get! Heavy metal guitars, blistering lead guitar solos, great drumming. Top-notch production.

The mixing seems a bit off, though, the vocals are a bit too soft. And the singer's voice should be more raspy. Yeah, I'm splitting hairs now.:-)

Definitely a keeper!

 Auf Wiedersehen Monty & Commando

For a "Newcomer" this Jeroen guy sounds pretty good to me. Not bad for a first remix, not bad, sir!... Just kidding! :-D Bow to the master! Bow to the master!

Makke - It's Binary, Baby!

It's Binary, Baby!

by Marcus (Makke) Nilsson (feat. Andreas Wallström & Boz)

Contemporary retro pop that uplifts and amazes. A stunningly original CD in which Makke's personality shines through in every track! Highlights include the "happy hardcore but so much more" Glider Rider, the inspired hard-edged electro-synth and robotic vocals of "Cauldron 2-005", and the " Bonus tracks include Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" and Apoptygma Berzerk's "Bitch, as well as Makke's witty and acclaimed covers of Madballs and Artura, with Makke's Irish accent all but wiping your memory of his Swedish origins!
