There have been several subtle and not-so-subtle changes made at the Remix64 site in recent weeks - check out some of the new, fun features we have now!

Into Eternity was published. Today, I'm pleased to announce it will be available to all as singles. From today and periodically over the next few week we'll be publishing a remix from the album on RKO as a thank you for being with us all these years and also is a way to give back to those whom have given to us joy with their fantastic remixes. Thank you all.
