o2 gives us a short but precise interview. O2 has created many dreamlike scores this is because of his musical influences, people like Jarre and Enya have made an impression on o2, and this is why you get these atmospheric remixes.

An Interview with Stefan Hartwig

by Neil Carr

Another Guy who provided some excellent tunes for the Turrican series of games. For some reason Stefan wan't consulted about about his music for Turrican before the game hit the market. Stefan explains that he was a bit disappointed by this. Some of the Software Houses in the days of the c64 really do have a lot to answer to.

An Interview with Fredrik Segerfalk

by Neil Carr

Fredrik composed the music for Shadow Of the Beast and Kick Off. Two outstanding games with outstanding soundtracks. The Kick Off series of games are still being made to this very day over a decade later. Fredrik tells a sad story here, where his hard work was literally and to put it bluntly RIPPED OFF!!!

An Interview with Richard Joseph (by Neil Carr)

by Neil Carr

Defender Of the Crown, Antirad, Barbarian and more recently 11 tracks for a lego game. Although he follows a different lead with his company Audio Interactive he still writes music to this very day. Talking of music.. Keep an eye out for a remix of Barbarian which may feature in a future BIT Album by Richard himself.

An Interview with Press Play On Tape

by Neil Carr

The only band in existance (Unless you know different) who devote their time into playing C64 music. They have played live in concert and have appeared on Danish radio. So we asked them about these matters and here's what they had to say.

An Interview with The Mighty Bogg

by Neil Carr

Mighty Bogg (Graham Marsh) Famous for the ermmm... Mighty Bogg Albums 1 and 2. But What happened to Bogg, where did he go, on he had the answers. So we seeked him out to ask exactly the questions.

An Interview with Thomas Detert

An Interview with Bart Klepka

Bart creator of 'The Big Ben' medley and his latest remix is Bruce Lee. Following a Dance style bart creations are heavilly remixed producing some unusual but satisfying work.

An Interview with Fred Gray

by Neil Carr

Shadowfire, Mutants, and Engima Force, yet surprisingly these an not his favourite piece, though he admits to them being groundbreakers. His favourite piece suprisingly is the whacky MADBALLS or the music from Mario Bros.

An Interview with Kenz

by Neil Carr

Kenz is the editor of Commodore Zone. He also set up a PD site called Binary Zone Interactive. To top this he has been involved with the Channel 4 show Bits as a Retro-Reasearcher. But to continue matters he is the Executive Producer for Bit 3 and he is responsable for the companion cd for bit3. Chris Abbott described this man as the man who single handedly tried to save the c64" - I think he has a point.

An Interview with DjLizard

by Neil Carr

Dj Lizard is all about Dance. Why?.. Well "everyone likes dance" according to Michael. But if you take a look at his website, you'll find many other tunes that are not of this style. Go on.. You know you want to...

by Neil Carr

Barry Leitch here gives a quite amusing account of his past and present work. He was resposable for the Techno-mix of Monty On The Run in the gremlin graphics follow-up called Impossamole. So what does barry do now... Well you'll be surprised...

An Interview with Ferrara

by Neil Carr

Ferrara takes the more philosophical approach with this interview. It certainly raises some issue's that are both interesting and Intriguing. Just check what Ferrara has to say.

An Interview with Makke

by Neil Carr

Makke's 'Ode to the c64', had to be investigated. This is just one of the many questions we asked Makke. He has produced some memorable tunes so far, and 'Ode to the C64' has possibly got to be one of the most original concept's for a good while.

An Interview with Wobbler

So far Wobbler has created many dance tracks with one excpetion his remix of Turbo Outrun has a latin feel. Feel free to visit his website at: www.wobbler.nu

Slumgud has produced some notable remixes, and these can be found at R:K:O. Another musician that follows the dance style, which seems to be the popular style at the moment.

An Interview with Michiel Soede (www.soedesoft.com)

by Neil Carr

Michiel is a Composer and Arranger. Soedesoft created many excellent tunes on the c64, but a worthy addition to this is his fine cover of Nemesis The Warlock, which can be found at either R:K:O, or at his own website. One of my favourite covers.

An Interview with Bart ten Brinke

by Neil Carr

Bart ten Brinke has so far made only one c64 remix. His version of Myth is very good indeed with superb use of stereo sound. He is looking towards doing mixes of Maniac Mansion and Outrun (Splash Wave).

An Interview with LMan

by Neil Carr

LMan has showed that he can compete with the best. His IK (Hiyyyah! Remix) proves this beyond doubt, winning him acclaim from many sections. He has also composed some non commercial c64 sid tunes that can be found on the HVSC under the name LMan, they are equally impressive. Not only this he works on the remix64 site and has provided content, graphics, and web design alongside colleague Slim.

An Interview with Jogeir Liljedahl

by Neil Carr

Jogier is another person who has contributed to the Back In Time album. His most popular cover is the Galway Is God mix, Which even he describes as his personal favourite. This mix mergers both Rambo and Green Beret with some class. It's an excellent cover, and it can be found on BIT 1 CD.

An Interview with DHS of the Soundwavers

by Neil Carr

Dhs's has always impressed me with his arrangements. They are proffesional. They keep in-touch with the original, yet add extra dance-a-bility. Not only this. He also belongs to the group Soundwavers which are equally as impressive as a collective
