I only just got told which ones out of the loads they listened to they wanted to use, so apologies to remixers and performers (and especially Reyn) than I had to sign off on these this afternoon in a hurry. I thought they'd give me a couple of weeks so I could get to everyone individually.
Anyway, here's the remixes they're using:
Reyn - Galway - Comic Bakery (Title)
Abbott - Hubbard - Thalamusik 2000
Reyn - Daglish- Bombo
Tron - Hubbard – Sanxion
Reyn - Daglish - Deflektor
Makke - Reyn - Last Ninja III
Makke - Joseph - Sacred Armour of Antiriad
Donne - Hubbard - Knucklebusters
Instant Remedy - Hubbard - Commando
Donne - Hubbard - Lightforce
Reyn - Follin - Magic Johnson's Basketball
Reyn - Norman - Aztec Challenge
Reyn - Cooksey - Ghosts and Goblins
Reyn - Galway - Arkanoid (Title)
Reyn - Galway - Parallax (Title)
Thanks and congratulations to all composers and remixers involved: being played at a BAFTA awards ceremony is a medium-size deal
By employing all 3 oscillators of the SID chip, Fastfingers generates rich, warm analogue synth sounds, craved so much by contemporary music producers.
Dan Laskowski is already making plans for further improvements, or even a version 2.0 of Fastfingers.
Apart from being an all-around nice guy both in real life and on the forum, he was also a very profecient remixer
and a DJ on SLAY Radio. Skitz passed away in his sleep, surrounded by his family.
He will be missed by us all.
We have been taking your votes for various categories including the one that the initials come from - Remixer of the Year.
The award show will be presented and broadcast by SLAY Radio, Sunday 16th January, 20:00 CET. It will also be relayed by SceneSat Radio.
Join your hosts, Boz and Slaygon, with a round-up of the year's events followed by the awards ceremony itself.
To ease your decision, the ROTY voting page now has a sorting feature that allows you to gain a quick overview about:
- Which acts had the highest average scores?
- Who released the most?
- Who was newcomer, who was veteran?
On the 23rd November in the year 2000, a new website revolutionised the then young c64 remixing community: Remix.Kwed.Org, lovingly named RKO by its users, went officially online. Offering vast webspace and free bandwidth, and employing latest web technologies, its founder Jan Lund Thomsen finally enabled artists to submit their remixes into a free, central, automatic music repository. This system compelled by its minimal design and ease-of-use, quickly superseding or complementing the conglomerate of websites that existed before (Triad's mp3 site being the most popular), which were loosely organised via the c64rmx yahoogroup.
The success of RKO lay the groundwork for many of the scene websites that came after, including Remix64.com.
Thanks Jan for 10 years of ceaseless service to the scene!
