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. ❤

Free Promo

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) ;)

"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

 Great Giana Sisters

Arranged by Dr Future

This is my favourite remix of an old cbm64 game-tune so far.
If Chris Hülsbeck wanted to make the tune in these "we have a lot of memory for a game tune"-times, it would have sounded just like this remix.
The guitar, the bass, the feel and the playfullness is just awsome.
This remix is not for the tecno-people or dancefolks, its for all the rest of us.

 Bionic Commando (Tune 5)

Arranged by Romeo Knight

Lovely. Just lovely. You can't help smiling and tapping your foot to the rhythm. It really catches the original melody awfully well, yet it sounds salsa like. Spanish guitar, some good percussion and tin drums. I love it when people remix songs in new styles without falling for novelty.
