Our beloved C64 musician, Johannes Bjerregaard has been recently diagnosed with cancer and needs our help. A remix album honoring his C64 tunes has just been published with all proceeds from the sale of the album benefiting Johannes Bjerregaard directly.
Among several classic Bjerregaard remixes there are also two new remixes available on this album: a re-interpretation of
Rockbuster by Wobbler, and NecroPolo's
Zoom. Enhanced versions of a few other remixes are also appearing on this album for the first time. Please, consider supporting the Bjerregaard family by purchasing the album on Bandcamp here.
It turns out that being patient for 4 years, 5 months and 3 days pays off in the end. The new episode of the C64 Take-away podcast was released yesterday. Jan is back with 65 minutes of remixes, chiptunes and news from the world of C64-related music.
Due to some technical circumstances, you are urged to delete the old feedburner.com feed from your podcast clients/RSS readers and sign up for the new feed to keep yourself updated of future episodes.

Hey all, it was about time for a design overhaul of our beloved Remix64.com.
The new layout is tidy and works with your mobile.
Mind that there are still a lot of sub-pages (Tracks, Remixer infos) that need to be redone to work in your phone. This will happen little by little, so thanks for your patience.
