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. 😃

Galway Remixed - Reyn Ouwehand

Galway Remixed

by Reyn Ouwehand

The ideal partner to Project Galway to celebrate the genius of Mr Galway himself, this CD is a slice of accomplished, hard-edged synth with a contemporary edge not blunted since its release. Highlights include a great dancey "Wizball" reminiscent of Wizball 2000 but with its own flavour (and a reverse attack that sends shivers down the spine), a Miami Vice that you can lose your consciousness in, and a full length Parallax that really conveys the thrill of the melodic ending of the piece.

Check it out...

Listening Recommendation

 The Recovery

Arranged by Glyn R Brown

I love this track. It reminds of Hans Zimmer when he was good. It really does have that early days of Media Ventures feel to it. Like Rain Man. Honestly, lets have more remixes like these!

 Great Giana Sisters Opening Theme

Arranged by Mauve Park

I'm afraid that the best thing that can be said about this remix is that's it's not inherently bad, and the experience of listening to it, if not the remix itself, is made so much worse by the feeling of disappointment it brings in just a few seconds after start.

It starts promising - immensely so, with a kind of "children at playground" background loop as the Giana Sisters theme opens with an eerie xylophone-ish instrument I could swear I've heard before in some horror movie or other, and it was a genuine surprise how well the theme fit to the creepy mood. "Okay," I thought, "it's a bit too fast, but I can live with that." And after a short while, it delivered... nothing. Nothing at all. About half a minute of eeriness, the melody shifts into the "generic remix" gear and stays there until the end. A little beat here, a little variation there, and we're done. There is one or two noteworthy points, likethe little twist around 1:23, but it's not nearly enough to pull it out of mediocrity; it's briefly promising, but it doesn't last.

 Last Ninja 3 - Wind

Arranged by Gavin Lucas

The best wind of Last Ninja 3 so far, its a challenging tune. I can see that some of the instruments were a challenge. It resembles the original really well and I guess more work on this seeing as its now 13 years old would be great to hear from this composer.
