"JB" - A charity album to benefit the Bjerregaard family

JB Johannes Bjerregaard Charity Album
27/08/2018

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.

Remix64 Volume 2: Into Eternity

Remix64 - Into Eternity

by Various Artists

The original "Remix64" title referred more to the community embracing the remixers than the content of the CD. And so it was that Remix64 - Into Eternity turned into a symphonic epic not a million miles away from the popular Merregnon series of CDs: there certainly is a teutonic air to much of the album. Highlights of the CD include Markus Holler's spine-tingling reworking of "Fist 2" with flute and ethereal vocals, and Thomas Detert's "Spellbound" which gives life to Rob Hubbard's own dark vision for the piece. Belying the computery artwork of the cover, this CD is a powerful piece of fantasy soundtrack more than it is a remix CD. Enjoy it at that level, and be blown away.

I love the depth and range of this, recognisably Follin and Fastloaders, what’s not to like!

 Barbarian (Orchestral)

Arranged by Matthias Sachal

Hmm. I have to say one thing first: This tune is one of the tunes that need a freaking good remix that's all the way faithful to the original. So in a way, I'm very glad that this remix was made in the first place. I hope it serves as an inspiration for the remixers.

As for this particular tune, I found it somewhat disappointing because it was somewhat short (The original is six and half minutes, this is a little bit over a minute...), and it's a little bit too slow too. Fight music needs to be fast! The rest of the elements of the song are pretty good; I like the use of the noises in the beginning. The instrument choices are pretty good.

But as it is, it isn't bad! I hope someone later remixes the One True Barbarian Remix. This will definitely do while waiting...
