Remix64.com Awards 2009

Last saturday was the big night of the Remixer Of The Year 2009 award show. Presented by the SceneSat Radio staff, it was being broadcast by SceneSat Radio, SLAY Radio, Radio6581, BitJam and Nectarine Demoscene Radio simultaneously. The hosts were joined by a live crowd consisting of many surprise guests, among them former years ROTY winners and other scene VIPs, pushing Ziphoid's apartment space to its limits! The most entertaining 4 hour show did not only trace the musical highlights of 2009 and present the winners: with the joint broadcast it also opened up perspectives between the remixing community and the demo scene, both which are cloesly related, but have often been ignorant of the other in the past.

The Results

Mordi won 2009's big price, being the new Remixer Of The Year. Firestorm massively scored #1 in the categories Most Innovative Mix and Best c64 Mix with his version of Commando, which was a surprise release in december. XxDUSTYxX won Best Amiga Mix, while daXX managed to place a whopping 9 of his remixes in that category. Reyn Ouwehand managed to win Best Veteran for the third time in a row, followed up by Hazel. The award for Best Newcomer went to Heartek. In a surprise coup, the Lifetime Achievement Award 2009 was awarded to yours truly, LMan.

Congratulations to all winners and follow-ups, everyone, you've deserved it. As always: the ROTY lists contain only winners. 😃

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. ❤

The following demonstartion video was recorded with the software running on a PC for this reason.

"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.

Marcel Donné - Sidologie CD

Sidologie

by Marcel Donne

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.

Listening Recommendation

 Angel (Merry X-Max)

Arranged by Lagerfeldt

Man, THAT'S a remix, a really mainstream song! After lagerfeldts cool R-Type and Dutch Breeze/Robocop remixes his latest called Angel is now my favorite remix. It could be played in every club/disco and would be - without a doubt - a top ten hit in the real charts (here in germany, my opinion)! It's incredible what the unique lagerfeldt created out of the inconspicuous but impressing melody of the 1993-song from Danko/Decoder. With loads of creativity he produced a powerful, happy and VERY danceable partytrack in the style of the german top ten acts Dune or Mark Oh.

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!

 Boulderdash (hippy 2001 remix)

Arranged by Rob Steptoe

A neat idea for this tune, but I don`t think it`s explored to its fullest. The opening seconds are close to perfect, but I have yet to become friends with the flute-like sound, although it seems to fit in nicely. Pleasant remix, not bad at all.
