Chris Abbott's c64Audio.com is currently going through re-development, and plans are afoot to incorporate both websites into a closer cooperation.
Both sites will remain owned and run by there respective site administrators, but many features will be made available to both c64.audio.com and remix64 visitors.
We'll keep you posted on developments as and when they happen. The future of the c64 remix scene is going to be even more exciting than ever.
Here is a list of planned releases in order of which they are thought to appear:
Output 64: A dire venture in to taking the piss out of c64 music. This album is to be amasingly released through the record industry and these guys have nothing to do with the scene whatsoever. Remix64 will not be supporting this venture in the slightest.
Slow Poison's Karma 64: coming early next year from Chris Abbott, Boz and Kenz. This CD features another side to c64audio.com and will be very different to Chris Abbott's Back In Time series.
Back In Time Live: Celebrating one of the biggest and most exciting c64 events ever. Back In Time Live will feature the classic dance remixes that was whitnessed at Birmingham and London. The release is set for May next year and will coincide with the next BITLIVE event (Yes there is another 😊 )
Instant Remedy: Next year sees the release of the dance orientated CD from oldschool master.
FTC64 - This will feature silky smooth remixes and chilly-out styled music.
8-bit Weapon - Enhanced sid mixes from the Seth sternberger, see our features pages for some info on this.
Press Play On Tape - remixes done with real instruments. Drums, Guitar, Synths from the band PPOT.
Sidologie: Marcel Donne's renditions of some classic tunes. Marcels outing here will provide a jarre/Vangelis feel. This one is about 1 year away from release.
Tonka: This CD is dance orientated a preview of one of the tunes from the CD has appeared on RKO and sounds rather good.
Remix64 - Yes, we all knew this was coming. Scheduled for a Christmas 2002 release and already is well on it way into production. finished/almost finished remixes so far are: Hollywood Poker Pro (Fabian Del Priore), Ocean Loader 4 (Marcel Donne), Hyper Agressive (Ex c64 musician Thomas Detert), Green Beret Title (Thomas Detert). These four tracks are deffinate, though many more are in production as i write. The biggest delay is a negotiation regarding Jeroen Tel's music with EMI. Hopefully this will be sorted out soon.
Nexus 6581 V2: Reyn Owenhand gives us some more of the same probably based around Johannes Bjerregaard. Details are very sketchy at the moment.
Bit 4: 2003 before you see the The long awaited and possibly the final in the series of Bit Albums which features classic sids re-worked into a sword and sorcery setting.
More CD's than you can shake a cat at and double the fun.
"It'll remind you of early Jarre (Oxygene, Equinix" - Marcel Donne.
The sids Marcel is looking to remix in the said style are currently being worked on, but marcel has given R64 a early track list. These are the tracks along with more that are not yet announced that could appear on Sidologie:
Yie Ar II
Miami Vice loader (ingame)
Green Beret loader
Watchit from Red (if I get permission)
Yie Ar 1
and I'm thinking of Monty On The Run.
"The only things I have at the mo are alphas from the Miami Vice loader (Think Equinoxe 1) and Knucklebusters (Industrial). The plan is to get a guitarplayer in for Knucklebusters and a string-quartet for Monty on the run. Oh, and Yie Ar 2 which is actually finished, completely in Vangelis style sounds." - Marcel Donne
