RAKBIT - a new C64 remix CD by NecroPolo from C64Audio.com!

Post by Chris Abbott » 07/12/2009 - 22:10

Prog-rock C64 cover loveliness from NecroPolo, and a free C64 demo album cover with new SID streaming format within!

Includes highlights such as Sanxion (really captures the grit of the original), Hades Nebula, Tusker, Rimrunner and more...

Thanks to NecroPolo for bringing life back to C64Audio.com :) :worship:

No, Chris, really, I say thank you for all what you and the SID remix scene done for SID music!

:worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

And, for me.

For a full picture, I must add that I was in a deep creativity crisis in the late few years. My rock band projects worked, albums were released so I'm not crying or something - but as a composer, I started to lose grip and joy with music. I became less and less motivated, fire was gone.

So came that exactly one year ago in a quite bitter mood I wanted to prepare a 20th anniversary release, based on old music, "back in the time" when I was motivated and hungry for composing. I found my long-lost SID archives and my real roots, so the story rolled on. Check the info file for a full picture.

Listening to the fine remixes of this great remix scene fully recharged my music engines. I even re-started to compose SID music 8)

Also, there I found so many great people: Chris, Hermit, Leon, iAN, Laxity, Reyn, and so many brilliant fellow remixers and old C64 sceners...

Thank you for all. All of you. :worship:

Regards,

Mikk (NP)


BTW if you have any comment on the album, any question or anything to add - feel free to do it here, this is the official thread :) :cheers:

I got completely hooked on your Robocop remix a couple of weeks ago. So when I got the news that you'd released an album this morning, it went straight into the shopping basket, without me even checking the previews. Brilliant marketing! :)

Oh, and mad props to you for including a Laser Squad tribute track. And mad props in general for doing something that's (unfortunately) become increasingly rare these days - reinventing the way C64 remixes are done.

Forgot to mention: If you want to increase the marketing reach a bit, send me a 327x70 banner and I'll slap it on RKO. :)

Jan - Er... Don't really know what to say :) Thanks for the positive comment and the support! I think, it has already been re-invented by Chris, you, Reyn, Slaygon, Makke and all the others who form this great community and influenced me to start this project. It's just my take on it ;)

Chris - Greeeat :)

Mayhem - Man, I'm glad you like it :)
