Ben Daglish is no longer with us

Ben Daglish And Thing
05/10/2018

A legend checks out way too early...

 

You've probably heard by now about the passing of Ben Daglish on 1st October. Having beaten cancer once, many of us were lulled into a false sense of security by the stability of his condition. However, following a short hospitalisation, he died of complications on Monday morning.

This is Remix64 so I don't need to list all the tunes he did: you have HVSC for that. But we'll all miss him terribly: he was the beating heart of the scene: not just a figure from history, but a living breathing legend who many of us had the privilege to meet, befriend, and even perform and compose with. We all have our own memories, and people all over the Internet are sharing theirs: he touched so many lives it's incredible.

Rock on, Ben. Give Richard our love. ❤

FEATSTEP Remix 2! (Android App)

Featstep Featstep Remix 2 Android App

Free Promo

FEATSTEP Remix 2! (Android) will remix .mp3 Audio / .mp4 Video to play as close to the 'tune' of your .SIDs as possible! Performance is better on newer devices; it sometimes runs with occational & inermittant pauses on my 4 year old tablet. The following demonstartion video was recorded with the software running on a PC for this reason.

While availible on Googe Play! for $2.99 (..in Canada only)..

I am sharing the current version with the worldly C64 .SID scene for FREE via this download link :

http://www.featstep.ca/featstepromo.apk
(This is the same file as the $2.99 Google Play release.)

FEATSTEP REMIX! (1 and 2) has been in constant development for about 3 years.

Developing this software I thought I could support myself with sales, though I have never actually successfully sold 1 copy to-date.

Any promotion you can do will be greatly appreciated, whether users download it for FREE from the promo link, or choose to pay $2.99 on Google Play. (Please concider paying as a Donation, I am now near bankrupt and homeless from working on it 24/7 and not selling any copies).

Also, If you enjoy FEATSTEP Remix 2! please share it with your friends 😊 (Either for FREE or at $2.99) ;)

Our beloved C64 musician, Johannes Bjerregaard has been recently diagnosed with cancer and needs our help. A remix album honoring his C64 tunes has just been published with all proceeds from the sale of the album benefiting Johannes Bjerregaard directly.

Among several classic Bjerregaard remixes there are also two new remixes available on this album: a re-interpretation of Rockbuster by Wobbler, and NecroPolo's Zoom. Enhanced versions of a few other remixes are also appearing on this album for the first time. Please, consider supporting the Bjerregaard family by purchasing the album on Bandcamp here.

Reyn Ouwehand - The Blithe, the Blend, the Bizarre

The Blithe, the Blend and the Bizarre

by Reyn Ouwehand

Reyn Ouwehand once again sets new standards in C64 live performance. This CD concentrates on those small or overlooked tunes that once filled our hearts with joy, and produces the definitive versions of them. Once you've heard his rendition: your brain will always think of the tunes that way. Performed live by Reyn and previewed extensively on Boz's Bit o' Bollocks Slay Radio show, this CD is further enhanced by Gilliam-esque artwork from the multi-talented Reyn and that Wizball and Sanxion-meister himself, Mark Hennessy-Barrett. This CD will leave you with a big soppy grin on your face. Guaranteed!* * Not a guarantee, but it's very likely.

Listening Recommendation

 Commando-Capella

Arranged by Igo Splashman

Call me egoistic, but this remix reminds me of - me! :-) Which SID fan didn`t try to whistle or sing Commando or some other SID tune to himself in his life trying to play all 3 voices with his one mouth? This cover is an enhancement of the same basic idea. My only gripe about it: after having heard May Be Bop`s excellent (albeit short) a capella version, this one sounds a bit electronic. It is too obvious that it`s not a live a capella choir singing it. For example, the bass line is definitely some pitch shifted samples put together, and the background folks sound just "too perfect". Not to mention the lack of inhaling noises, that telltale sign of real humans singing. But it`s ton of fun, regardless!

 Lightforce (Power Remix)

Arranged by Markus Holler

I think the subtitle is misleading, because power it ain't. It definitely
feels more powerful as the guitar lead comes in about halfway through, but
it needs more powerful drums to make it, well, more powerful. Nice use of
those filtered electronic sounds that essentially provide the backbone of the
tune, just like in Hubbard's original. All in all, a forceful remix that falls
a tad short of expectations. Oh, and I think it's also too short.
