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) 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 :
(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.

If Jarre and Vangelis had done C64 music: they would have sounded like this. Highlights include a stunning cover of Rob Hubbard's Knucklebusters, a full length Miami Vice which fills the soul with Martin Galway's rhythmic and arpeggionic genius, and a cheeky "Band in the Rain" tribute with the Wizball High Score Theme. From Jarre to Vangelis, to a sound that reminds you of both but remains unique to Marcel, this album goes way beyond tribute into "soul satisfying". C64 Music has never sounded so evocative.

After a mellow beginning (lullaby-style with breakbeats and female voice) it turns to an explosion of filtered and voluminous synthsounds and a stomping beat, that your feet can't stop tapping. A drumkitbridge (Safri Duo-like) in the middlepart moves over to the final refrain-lap and leads out with a few seconds of the original sid. Ok, the main melody is repeating through the whole song, but it's going over to the listeners blood (like eric prydz' call on me)! If you don't like it the first time listening, give it a try, loop the song and hear it twice or more times in one piece. Maybe the Angel-virus will get u too (hey, do you already whistle the melody?)!?!
The overall impression ist superb, technically and artistic perfect, just a grey one for the nostalgic impression, but that would be hard to realize, if you heard the original song, that turns part away from the main start - so no full score.
One word: I'm just a newbie in here, this is my first review, but i think we've to put lagerfeldt on a higher socket soon. What he did and does for our (still) more or less small scene compared to others ist outstanding! Supporting sites, doing remixes and reviews at the remix64 and the Lemon-sites. My biggest repects for a guy who is a professional musicproducer (dozens of gold and platin records) but still having much fun going back to his roots... Holger, keep up your exemplary and great work, we can't await your next remix! You should contact Danko/Decoder to release a single of Angel! SIR Holger Lagerfeldt - even outstanding!
