Mark Visser (Misser) passed away

Misser

On the 22nd of August Mark Visser (alias Misser / Mr.Mad) unexpectedly passed away. As a coder and cracker was responsible for numerous demo's and cracks and was loved by many in the C64 scene as a cuddly, crazy and happy Dutchie. He will be sorely missed. A website has been created in his memory where you can express your condolences or leave any message you wish.

Everything will be printed and personally handed to his family.

Bleep and Destroy by Vincenzo feat. NecroPolo

8-bit bleeps meet crushing metal guitars, synthesizer sounds and love for oldschool computers. These ingredients required to cook on high temperature together and the result is some fine sid-rock,  for the fans of chip'n'roll everywhere!

Listening Recommendation
 Cauldron II - I am a Pumpkin Man
Arranged by trauma


Ay carramba! What a great remix! Technically, it's perfect: great mixing/mastering, overall quality and selection of sounds. Artistically, Trauma spills creativity all over the place, combining various styles into something unique - yet it works perfectly. This remix slowly but constantly builds up until it finally culminates in a musical frenzy. The lyrics and the clever implementation of Richard Joseph's original tune do all to spark nostalgia.

I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a remix of this SID I'd like even more than the 909Sadist's! But here it is! (be sure to check them both out) :-D

 Pool Party (FN mix)
Arranged by Xenox


Unfortunately I can\'t really give this much credit points. Anyone can use SID2MIDI, but the important thing is (and is what is most noticeable) is when the arranger doesn\'t double-check the original SID to ensure that all the notes are correct. The program is a really good way to capture the notes, but it doesn\'t handle slides / glides at all, hence if a song uses them and the notes ain\'t corrected, it can ruin your cover.

Crystal Dreamscapes CD

Crystal Dreamscapes

by Chris Abbott

One of the most innovative Commodore remix CDs ever created. Beautiful and inspiring, it delivers a stream of uninterrupted consciousness ideal for programming, chilling, or even soothing a child! Most tracks on this CD are based on Commodore 64 tunes, though the names of the tracks have been changed so as to enhance its universal appeal, and to avoid puncturing the delicate reality it spins. Highlights include the liquid crystalline cavern sound of Chimera (Here called "Liquid Crystal"), melancholy transforming to joy in "Trap" (here called "Dusk before Dawn"), and the ultimate joy of two Tim Follin LED Storm reworks. Priced to fulfil its spiritual mission!
