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. 😃

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.

Check it out...

Listening Recommendation

 WorldCup 90 (Genias)

Arranged by Sten

I liked this song on Amiga 28 years ago... and this is really a nice remix without invent some strange thinks to make the remix different from original. It's sounds modern but i recognize the style of the original and the melody here is really amazing with as background an very nice harmonic line. No other remix are present here so max vote for the effort of the author!

 Blood money (Kicked miX)

Arranged by THC FlatLine

Stuffed with a great selection of synth/electronic/SID sounds and modulations and offering an awesome recreation of the important lead, it is very good. Expect the sidtune on different and more capable equipment. It is a cover version, which is close, but different at the same time. For instance, unlike the SID version, it doesn't concentrate on filtered sounds and heavy ring-modulation.

It's a song of power. Get out of my way until we get shot down. Everyone will die, lose everything, but until then we sing.
