After a highly successful Kickstarter LMan has published a new album called
Remix news for September 2020 thanks to Lea, Mordi and SLAY Radio.
2019's Remixer of the year and former Ocean Software musician Peter Clarke has created a rather useful guide for budding remixers. Peter along with notable remixers goes through the key principles of getting started as a remixer.
Key points of discussion are:
- Music on the Amiga
- Red Sector/TRSI
- Remixing c64 classics
- The use of real Instuments when remixing
To promote their latest
Amiga Rocks album, FastLoaders went on SLAY Radio for a long and entertaining interview.
In case you missed their Facebook announcement - like I totally did - Press Play On Tape had a virtual concert on Sept. 19, 2020.
Rollicking rock-remixers of
Amiga Rocks, which - as its title suggests - contains rock-oriented remixes of Amiga classics like
Shadow of the Beast,
Lotus Turbo Challenge and many others.

Up until 1:24 I had high hopes, but from that point on it's just doesn't sound very pleasing to my ears. Plus there is little variation in there, so in the end this 6+ minute remix is just plain boring.
