Amiga Power Kickstarter almost over

Matt Smith Amiga Power The Album With Attitude Live On Kickstarter
28/04/2019

Today is the final day of the kickstarter with massive talent involved, so if you want to participate, head there now.

 

The organiser Matt Smith wrote about it:

 

Splendidly, as we head into the last day of the campaign, we've hit the £19,000 mark and unlocked a new stretch goal. The deluxe liner notes booklet accompanying the AP album (in both its digital and physical incarnations) will now feature a full 100 pages of groovy stuff, including a special Complete Control section written by Rich Pelley, in which he’ll endeavour to provide solutions to all your problems – game-related or otherwise. Hurrah!

How much more can we accomplish in the next few hours? With your help, we could yet hit another stretch goal! There's still time to support the project if you haven't already, and continuing to spread the word about it would be a massive help too. Just click the link above for more information!

Matt Smith Amiga Power The Album With Attitude Live On Kickstarter
29/03/2019

A Kickstarter campaign to create a new album of Amiga game music remixes, all of them connected with classic '90s magazine Amiga Power, is now live.

 

apkickstarter.com

 

 

Journalist and long-standing AP fan Matthew Smith – not the Manic Miner creator – is seeking funding to create Amiga Power: The Album With Attitude, a double-CD collection of more than 30 brand new remixes inspired by the magazine. The first disc will feature tracks based on tunes personally selected by former AP contributors, while the second disc will contain tracks based on games and demos given away on the mag's coverdisks over the years.

 

A whole host of star musicians are involved with the project, including Andrew Barnabas, Allister Brimble, Mike Clarke, Fabian Del Priore, Olof Gustafsson, Jogeir Liljedahl, Joi, Jon Hare, Chris Huelsbeck, Barry Leitch, Patrick Nevian, Jason Page, Instant Remedy, Matthias Steinwachs, Jeroen Tel and Tim Wright.

 

Among the tracks set for inclusion are pieces from Apidya, Banshee, Blob, Cannon Fodder, The Chaos Engine, Fantasy World Dizzy, Fire & Ice, Gloom, Harlequin, Hired Guns, Jetstrike, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2, No Second Prize, Pinball Fantasies, Sensible World Of Soccer, Shadow Fighter, Speedball 2 and Stardust, plus many more.

 

The album will also include a deluxe liner notes booklet containing more than 80 pages of facts, song lyrics, exclusive artwork and written contributions from the AP team.

 

If you want to grab a copy for yourself (in physical or digital form), along with a variety of bonus rewards, you can support the Kickstarter campaign here: apkickstarter.com

Makke - It's Binary, Baby!

It's Binary, Baby!

by Marcus (Makke) Nilsson (feat. Andreas Wallström & Boz)

Contemporary retro pop that uplifts and amazes. A stunningly original CD in which Makke's personality shines through in every track! Highlights include the "happy hardcore but so much more" Glider Rider, the inspired hard-edged electro-synth and robotic vocals of "Cauldron 2-005", and the " Bonus tracks include Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" and Apoptygma Berzerk's "Bitch, as well as Makke's witty and acclaimed covers of Madballs and Artura, with Makke's Irish accent all but wiping your memory of his Swedish origins!

Listening Recommendation

 The Chase (Sword of Honour)

Arranged by DHS

DHS has done it again with another amazing tune. I really like the lyrics in this one, as it reminds me of a song you would hear in an 80s buddy cop film.

Arranged by SHEN LON

This track made me create an account here, so that I could comment on this one. There are good tracks and then there are really really good tracks...and then, sometimes, once every third year a track like this shows up. I can listen to this like 15-20 times in a row. It gives me that special feeling every time. Thank you Shen Lon.

Latest Review

 The Human Race (Goldrunner) Piano Live

Arranged by LightSide

I said it before and I'll say it again: I'm a sucker for piano covers, so any piano piece will automatically get upvoted by me. :-) But I think this piece could've used more variation in dynamics, it's sort of flat throughout. Especially if this is a live recording, not a sequenced piece.
