Amiga Power: The Album With Attitude live on Kickstarter

Matt Smith Amiga Power The Album With Attitude Live On Kickstarter
29/03/2019

A Kickstarter campaign to create a new album of Amiga game music remixes, all of them connected with classic '90s magazine Amiga Power, is now live.

 

apkickstarter.com

 

 

Journalist and long-standing AP fan Matthew Smith – not the Manic Miner creator – is seeking funding to create Amiga Power: The Album With Attitude, a double-CD collection of more than 30 brand new remixes inspired by the magazine. The first disc will feature tracks based on tunes personally selected by former AP contributors, while the second disc will contain tracks based on games and demos given away on the mag's coverdisks over the years.

 

A whole host of star musicians are involved with the project, including Andrew Barnabas, Allister Brimble, Mike Clarke, Fabian Del Priore, Olof Gustafsson, Jogeir Liljedahl, Joi, Jon Hare, Chris Huelsbeck, Barry Leitch, Patrick Nevian, Jason Page, Instant Remedy, Matthias Steinwachs, Jeroen Tel and Tim Wright.

 

Among the tracks set for inclusion are pieces from Apidya, Banshee, Blob, Cannon Fodder, The Chaos Engine, Fantasy World Dizzy, Fire & Ice, Gloom, Harlequin, Hired Guns, Jetstrike, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2, No Second Prize, Pinball Fantasies, Sensible World Of Soccer, Shadow Fighter, Speedball 2 and Stardust, plus many more.

 

The album will also include a deluxe liner notes booklet containing more than 80 pages of facts, song lyrics, exclusive artwork and written contributions from the AP team.

 

If you want to grab a copy for yourself (in physical or digital form), along with a variety of bonus rewards, you can support the Kickstarter campaign here: apkickstarter.com

Back In Time 2 CD

Back in Time 2

by Various Artists

Back in Time 1 broke a lot of ground, so the sequel aimed to raise the bar. The second album used some extraordinary talent such as Peter Connelly, Jogeir Liljedahl, Tonka and Danko to provide a much more varied soundscape than the first. Highlights include the beautiful orchestral version of "Forbidden Forest", the ultimate feel-good remix "Wizball 2000" and the spine-tingling "Galway is God" Rambo/Green Beret medley, as well as featuring a remastering of the first ever C64 Remix: Rob Hubbard's own "Thalamusik" from Zzap!64 issue 26. Round that off with an extended club mix of Comic Bakery and Fred Gray's own funky interpretation of his own Batman theme, and you've got a CD which still stands the test of time today.

Listening Recommendation

 Green Beret (The Simple Mix)

Arranged by Mordi

Understated, laid back, sweet, lush.

Four words to start with describing this piece that I'm so glad Mordi decided to release after tantalising in the forum:-)

Now I have a special soft spot for this original piece from Martin Galway, but that doesent mean I automatically love every arrangement, there arent many out there that I can confess to really liking.

This, by approaching the piece from a different angle - smoother, slower, less frenetic than the original - it appeals for different reasons.

Mordi's decision to stick with the wibbles/noteplex's in the tune is a good one, it anchors the piece to the original in a warm nostalgic way I appreciate. The melody is intact, with an added underlying harmony that reminds me a bit of the dual-melodies in the Wizball highscore. Added arpeggios give it an ethereal lift that think adds a lot too.

A relaxing nostalgic listening pleasure, thank you Mordi:-)

Random review

 Thanatos (In Love Mix)

Arranged by DJ RETROGrade

If somebody can explain to me why this remix starts with what sounds like a
Japanese auctioneer speaking fast, please, let me know. Then it has a sort of
minimalistic oriental feel to it with exotic drums and that sitar-like lead.
Which would be okay with me, except that this goes on for over 5 minutes
without much variation - and it makes this remix boring. Cut this remix in
half or introduce some variations or add a climax or something.

 Dutch Breeze/Robocop 3 (Progressive Uplift)

Arranged by Lagerfeldt

This has everything going for it. Beautiful beat, beautiful synth, effects fit in perfectly.. One of my all time favourites. No Emotion or energy? It's infectious! How can you not want to get your groove on listening to this?
