Entry #2 - Makke - Final Assault (New Age Climber)

Amiga remix of Final Assault (Title) a.k.a. Biovuac a.k.a. Chamonix Challenge, by Charles Callet

 

Total Score: 243

Average Rating: 3.68

Best Remix rank: #33

 

COMMENT: This is a take on the Amiga title music for Final Assault a.k.a. Biovuac a.k.a. Chamonix Challenge. The arrangement was tricky, because the original sounds slightly random at times. I am sure some notes are wrong, but this is as far as my patience would go. I wanted it to sound like an early 90s new age track.

 


Entry #3 - LDA - Dynamoid (LDA Remake)

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/D/Detert_Thomas/Dynamoid.sid, subtune 2

 

Total Score: 268

Entry #4 - Tim Forsyth - M.A.C.H - Subtune 3

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/B/Bjerregaard_Johannes/M_A_C_H.sid, subtune 3

 

Total Score: 265

Average Rating: 4.02

Best Remix rank: #17

 

COMMENT: Taking the rules far too literally, I picked something that's never been remixed before.    The funny thing is, I have absolutely no idea how I know this great tune.  I never played that game, so perhaps it was from a demo or cracktro. When I start a remix, I have no idea what direction it's going to go in. This very quickly turned into some kind of techno space opera and I admit it was a challenge to cram things down to 5 minutes while keeping the sections intact and everything coherant.

COMMENT: Firstly, all the best on your 20th anniversary and great success in the years ahead!   Since I bought my new E-Drum Kit (Alesis Nitro Mesh w/ double bass pedal and 2 extra cymbals) in 2020, I almost practice every day.   After 34(!) years, Drums To Heaven by Chris Hülsbeck still rocks, so I came to the idea of this drum cover.   I kept it very simple this time: Just my e-drum kit, two original samples and no extra frills! 😉   Have fun!

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/J/Jammer/Broken_Circuits_Part_1_short.sid

Best Remix rank: #24

 

COMMENT: Jammer is one of my most fav nu-school C64 composers. I was thinking about making a guitar cover of this high energy SID for a loooong time, so finally here it is.    Tools used, for tech nerds like me:

- DAW: Reaper 5.9

- Interface: Focusrite Clarett 4pre USB

Entry #21 - Kjetiln - Desert Dream Remix

Amiga remix of  Desert Dream by Laxity/Kefrens

 

Total Score: 285

Average Rating: 4.32

Best Remix rank: #8

 

COMMENT: I just LOVE the main melody of Desert Dream. When I finally had an opportunity to make an Amiga remix for a compo, this .mod was a very easy choice for me. It's not an easy song to tackle, though. Previous attempts from me have always ended up in the bin.. I am very satisfied with the result this time, and hope you are as well!

Entry #24 - Kjetiln - Rubicon End Theme Remix

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/T/Tel_Jeroen/Rubicon.sid, subtune 11

 

Total Score: 261

Average Rating: 3.95

Best Remix rank: #21

 

COMMENT: I had a lot of fun with the remix, but also some frustration as it was a hard one to get right. I actually started on 3 different remixes of this song. I almost quit on the 3rd attempt as well, but luckily I managed to get it where I wanted it at the end. There's already an excellent rendition by Glyn R Brown of this track and I wanted to make this not a remake of that one, but at the same time do my own thing which is kinda similar. I also wanted to stay as true to the original as possible.


Entry #25 - Bullboy - Death Wish 3

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/DeathWish_III.sid, subtune 1

 

Total Score: 222

The Last Hero image:
Mikael Dunker a.k.a. Mikael of Pretzel Logic

 

This remix of The Last Hero started off with some air drumming whilst I was listening to the original SID at work (this happens all the time when a tune inspires me). I got the basic groove down and thought: I must get this tune remixed! I don't play other instruments that well and please don't ask me to mix and master your next album, but I'm fortunate to have talented friends who dedicated their time to make this remix to what it is. It was a pleasure working with everyone and for me, this cooperation is a true testament to how wonderful the C64 scene is and also the friendships that come along with it.

Thanks for listening!

Andreas

Entry #31 - The Cheesemakers - Draconus (Shaken Baby-Twist)

SID remix of /MUSICIANS/G/Gilmore_Adam/Draconus.sid, subtune 3

 

Total Score: 207

Average Rating: 3.09

Best Remix rank: #39

 

COMMENT: Dj Skitz was always a fan of The Cheesemakers, praising whatever WIP I sent his way. But he caught on why he only got to hear unfinished tunes as soon as we started co-oping on Draconus, for I am one lazy, unmotivated bum. Maybe he calculated it would take about one and a half decades for me to get going (thanks to the great 20th-anniversary initiative!) and released a standalone remix.  And now, the collab is FINALLY... here.  Greetz: Remix64, Slayradio, T&M, Arne, Eurocop, and Paul Hadrill
