He left RKO and AR, and requested his files be removed. He's available for PM on this very board if you want more info.

Cheers,

Not so sad anymore after reading his last post. What a way to alienate a whole fanbase. Thank god there is a bunch of great Remixers out there who wants to share their productions and wants them listened to by as many people as possible, without any other payment than the comments and ratings they receive from the listeners. Life goes on, old legends die, and new ones rises in their place. Keep the Remixes coming people! :rock: :sly: :w00t: :dancing:

Wondering where that "fanbase" was, to give me backing, when so called "Amigans" spotted my name in public. :?:

Yeah, aslong as you get music for free it's always great and you can be a fan. :confusion:
What a wonderful and witty statement. :!:

I am sorry if you had some bad experience with fans, but that’s a part of being a legend. I don’t think anyone at this site expects people to throw money at them. You did make some extremely nice productions and shared them with the Amiga community and I am great full for that. I’t just saddens me to see you leave. I don’t know the full story, you might be leaving for really good or personal reason which you cannot share, but from your previous post it seamed that you left because you didn’t get payed.

Most big artists out there have found the solution to earning money in these “modern” times. This is primarily done by building up a huge fanbase, and sharing your productions freely are a big part of that, being it through Soundcloud, YouTube, AmigaRemix or other distribution services, how else do you get your name out there? When people are hooked and recognize you, they will look you up, find out when your next album will be out, buy it or stream it on the many streaming platforms that are out there (like Spotify, apple music and so on). For example look at the Producer “Astrix”. One of, if not the leading producer of Psy-Trance. He shares his stuff freely almost daily. Yes, I am a fan and I support him by listening to his tracks on streaming services, buy merchandize and attend concerts when he’s in the country and that’s how he makes a living. I know that there are other ways, but it is really hard nowadays.

Anyway, I do wish you luck in your future endeavors, and hopefully you will come back to AmigaRemix sometime in the future and share your sweet productions again.

Best regards

Aknotronic, you missunderstood something.
It's not about to get money for my remixes.
But when others make money with MY remixes, then i should get it and not them, or ?

But OK, for a very last time i will explain why i deleted all...!

Some people have trampled on my wishes. (Very easy wishes. Don't make money with MY music!)
If I said please do not make any sales with my music, or do not monetize them, they put the advertisement offline for a while and a few weeks later the advertisement was back online. WTF? THIS is something annoys and is fraud in my eyes.

It was my only way to delete all my music everywhere because THOSE people forced me to do that with their devious actions.
No download = No way to use it in higher quality anymore.

And then, after i deleted all and also canceled stuff with some planed kickstarters, people call me mercenary or published storys on kickstarters with half the truth. Great! Wow. I gave the remixes for almost 15 years for free. Too bad that this will be forgotten so quickly. :(

But no worries. You can listen the remixes and lot of more very soon on MY channel and only on my channel. ;)
But there will just no button anymore with "Download".

Best wishes,
D4XX

Hi Daxx
will there be a way to buy your Remixes?
Wird es eine Möglichkeit geben, Deine Remixes dort zu kaufen?

Best regards

signed up just for this post, was actually trying to find out what the story/crack was with daxx and his work after 1 of my pc hd's died and i lost a load of tunes and vids, thought he'd died or something and took his stuff to the grave, after reading this tho, well yeah its a shame we cant get his tunes anymore unless we already have them backed up but from what daxx has mentioned, if others are earning off his work and he isnt happy with that (who would be?) then its fair game tbh... unfortunate but fair.

I would still like/liked to have seen something on kickstarter with the same ideas as Matt Gray and his very successful reformation projects, happily shell out funds if thats the only way to get anything further, tho even with that if ppl still try to earn off his future work as well, it doesnt really cure anything.

btw (if your still reading here daxx) is it ok for ppl to stream your tunes on twitch provided theres no monetary stuff involved, ive usually got some amiga/c64 tunes in my playlists including yours, when im gaming online shooting things in the face, i dont twitch "for real" tho, just casual stuff..

dear bummer,

if you just use the music like a radio show or as background music for live streams, it's completely ok for me.
Also Slay-Radio, SceneSat and maybe other scene radios will play my Remixes. No Problem with it.

What i never understood is, why people need to upload a track thousands time on those "Retro Channels" when i have uploaded them here or on my youtube channel. Sure thing: Only to generate Follower and potential people to watch their monetizings. I think, when someone wants to upload my remix anywhere, he needs to ask me first. I am also against all those millions of videos with official music on youtube. Youtube should BAN them all or pay for it with high punishments. Just my 2 cent.

Dear Thorsten,

I'm not sure if or how i continue. First i will bring up all my remixes online again with a new quality mixing/master (more dynamic not too much brickwalled / loudnesswar). That will need a bit time. If I think more deeply about i have also around 100 unfinished Remixes. It would be a pity to delete them.

And maybe the site owners here will think about their side policy. Deactivate Download and Deactivate Vote would be a great first start!
Cheers.

oh new remixes, off hand do you recall what they mostly consist of? game remixes or demo ones? i like all the game mixes we get a lot but have to admit the higher quality demo remixes are an uncommon thing for me to find but very welcome when they show up.

Well the very purpose of remix.kwed.org is to be a download platform where hobbyist remixers can publish their stuff, and remix64.com accompanies the site as a feedback forum. So disabling downloads would kind of defeat the purpose.

However once you have set up your new distribution channel, you can post a news or free ad on the remix64 main news channel. You could also register an account again and put a link to your stuff on it.
