Today is the final day of the kickstarter with massive talent involved, so if you want to participate, head there now.
The organiser Matt Smith wrote about it:
Splendidly, as we head into the last day of the campaign, we've hit the £19,000 mark and unlocked a new stretch goal. The deluxe liner notes booklet accompanying the AP album (in both its digital and physical incarnations) will now feature a full 100 pages of groovy stuff, including a special Complete Control section written by Rich Pelley, in which he’ll endeavour to provide solutions to all your problems – game-related or otherwise. Hurrah!
How much more can we accomplish in the next few hours? With your help, we could yet hit another stretch goal! There's still time to support the project if you haven't already, and continuing to spread the word about it would be a massive help too. Just click the link above for more information!
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.
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

The Blithe, the Blend and the Bizarre
by Reyn Ouwehand
Reyn Ouwehand once again sets new standards in C64 live performance. This CD concentrates on those small or overlooked tunes that once filled our hearts with joy, and produces the definitive versions of them. Once you've heard his rendition: your brain will always think of the tunes that way. Performed live by Reyn and previewed extensively on Boz's Bit o' Bollocks Slay Radio show, this CD is further enhanced by Gilliam-esque artwork from the multi-talented Reyn and that Wizball and Sanxion-meister himself, Mark Hennessy-Barrett. This CD will leave you with a big soppy grin on your face. Guaranteed!* * Not a guarantee, but it's very likely.
Arranged by N-JOY
!!Warning!! this track will get stuck in your head all day!
