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

Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.

Listening Recommendation

 Bubble Bobble (Live!)

Arranged by Hampshire Regional High School

Brilliant! Absolutely love this! Wonder who's in the audience as they seem to be loving it too! Main theme accurately reproduced with lots of humour - then we have the invincibility music (which gets a big cheer) followed by the New Zealand story ingame music :-) Great stuff and a lot of fun!!

Random review

 Barbarian (Orchestral)

Arranged by Matthias Sachal

Hmm. I have to say one thing first: This tune is one of the tunes that need a freaking good remix that's all the way faithful to the original. So in a way, I'm very glad that this remix was made in the first place. I hope it serves as an inspiration for the remixers.

As for this particular tune, I found it somewhat disappointing because it was somewhat short (The original is six and half minutes, this is a little bit over a minute...), and it's a little bit too slow too. Fight music needs to be fast! The rest of the elements of the song are pretty good; I like the use of the noises in the beginning. The instrument choices are pretty good.

But as it is, it isn't bad! I hope someone later remixes the One True Barbarian Remix. This will definitely do while waiting...

 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?
