New site structure

26/02/2010We're back! The Remix64 backend has been revamped to allow for multiple connections between your member account and your various remix projects. That means: you can manage the information for all your projects from your "My Remix64" section, it also means that all members of a group can manage their song and band infos from their individual member accounts.

To establish connections to your remix projects, log in to "My Remix64" and follow the instructions at the "My Connections" page.

The new structure is represented by new URLs. Here are a few examples:

The "Act" URL

It represents the name under which a person or a band has released remixes. It lists all the releases, and the members involved.

http://www.remix64.com/act/press_play_on_tape/

The "Member" URL
Here you'll find your new Remix64 member profile page. It now shows a list of all remix projects you have worked on, and a list of all your project's releases.
http://www.remix64.com/member/c64audio/

The "Track" URL
This is the good old remix info page.
http://www.remix64.com/track/ziphoid/comic_bakery/

The old URLs will still work and forward to the proper new location, so there's no immediate need to update your links.

We also have a revamped member directory.

Enjoy! :-)

ROTY Awards 2009 awarded

26/01/2010Last saturday was the big night of the Remixer Of The Year 2009 award show. Presented by the SceneSat Radio staff, it was being broadcast by SceneSat Radio, SLAY Radio, Radio6581, BitJam and Nectarine Demoscene Radio simultaneously. The hosts were joined by a live crowd consisting of many surprise guests, among them former years ROTY winners and other scene VIPs, pushing Ziphoid's apartment space to its limits! The most entertaining 4 hour show did not only trace the musical highlights of 2009 and present the winners: with the joint broadcast it also opened up perspectives between the remixing community and the demo scene, both which are cloesly related, but have often been ignorant of the other in the past.

The Results

Mordi won 2009's big price, being the new Remixer Of The Year. Firestorm massively scored #1 in the categories "Most Innovative Mix" and "Best c64 Mix" with his version of "Commando", which was a surprise release in december. XxDUSTYxX won "Best Amiga Mix", while daXX managed to place a whopping 9 of his remixes in that category. Reyn Ouwehand managed to win "Best Veteran" for the third time in a row, followed up by Hazel. The award for "Best Newcomer" went to Heartek. In a surprise coup, the Lifetime Achievement Award 2009 was awarded to yours truly, LMan.

Congratulations to all winners and follow-ups, everyone, you've deserved it. As always: the ROTY lists contain only winners.:-D
