ÁROK/SLAY Radio remix compo!

Slaygon Rok Slay Radio Remix Compo


Greetings, 8-bitlings!

Welcome to our ONLINE C64 Remix Competition!

Background story: Árok party is an annual 8-bit demoscene event in Hungary, which, due to the unfortunate COVID situation won't happen this year.
Árok is (in)famous for its friendly atmosphere and its REMIX COMPETITION - no other 8-bit demoscene event had ever such a compo!
We miss the event so much that we want to honor it with organizing an online version of the unique challenge.

Árok Party team and SLAY Radio proudly present:


Árok started the annual Remix Competitions right after the MP3 player card for the IDE64 was released.
Just to be authentic, all the releases were played on the C64 since the beginning.
Participants take their favourite 8-bit songs and recreate them without limits, using modern instrumentation.
Join the fun, and compete with your own creation!
