Remix64.com Awards 2009

Last saturday was the big night of the Remixer Of The Year 2009 award show. Presented by the SceneSat Radio staff, it was being broadcast by SceneSat Radio, SLAY Radio, Radio6581, BitJam and Nectarine Demoscene Radio simultaneously. The hosts were joined by a live crowd consisting of many surprise guests, among them former years ROTY winners and other scene VIPs, pushing Ziphoid's apartment space to its limits! The most entertaining 4 hour show did not only trace the musical highlights of 2009 and present the winners: with the joint broadcast it also opened up perspectives between the remixing community and the demo scene, both which are cloesly related, but have often been ignorant of the other in the past.

The Results

Mordi won 2009's big price, being the new Remixer Of The Year. Firestorm massively scored #1 in the categories Most Innovative Mix and Best c64 Mix with his version of Commando, which was a surprise release in december. XxDUSTYxX won Best Amiga Mix, while daXX managed to place a whopping 9 of his remixes in that category. Reyn Ouwehand managed to win Best Veteran for the third time in a row, followed up by Hazel. The award for Best Newcomer went to Heartek. In a surprise coup, the Lifetime Achievement Award 2009 was awarded to yours truly, LMan.

Congratulations to all winners and follow-ups, everyone, you've deserved it. As always: the ROTY lists contain only winners. 😃

Ben Daglish And Thing
05/10/2018

A legend checks out way too early...

 

You've probably heard by now about the passing of Ben Daglish on 1st October. Having beaten cancer once, many of us were lulled into a false sense of security by the stability of his condition. However, following a short hospitalisation, he died of complications on Monday morning.

This is Remix64 so I don't need to list all the tunes he did: you have HVSC for that. But we'll all miss him terribly: he was the beating heart of the scene: not just a figure from history, but a living breathing legend who many of us had the privilege to meet, befriend, and even perform and compose with. We all have our own memories, and people all over the Internet are sharing theirs: he touched so many lives it's incredible.

Rock on, Ben. Give Richard our love. ❤

FEATSTEP Remix 2! (Android App)

Featstep Featstep Remix 2 Android App

Free Promo

FEATSTEP Remix 2! (Android) will remix .mp3 Audio / .mp4 Video to play as close to the 'tune' of your .SIDs as possible! Performance is better on newer devices; it sometimes runs with occational & inermittant pauses on my 4 year old tablet. The following demonstartion video was recorded with the software running on a PC for this reason.

youtu.be/u5tHMfhBwJA


While availible on Googe Play! for $2.99 (..in Canada only)..

I am sharing the current version with the worldly C64 .SID scene for FREE via this download link :

http://www.featstep.ca/featstepromo.apk
(This is the same file as the $2.99 Google Play release.)

FEATSTEP REMIX! (1 and 2) has been in constant development for about 3 years.

Developing this software I thought I could support myself with sales, though I have never actually successfully sold 1 copy to-date.

Any promotion you can do will be greatly appreciated, whether users download it for FREE from the promo link, or choose to pay $2.99 on Google Play. (Please concider paying as a Donation, I am now near bankrupt and homeless from working on it 24/7 and not selling any copies).

Also, If you enjoy FEATSTEP Remix 2! please share it with your friends 😊 (Either for FREE or at $2.99) ;)

Insert Disc 2

by Instant Remedy

7 years in the making, this is a labor of love – all contained in one album. Including the mega mixes, there actually are 25 remixes on the album. Filled with dance remixes of music from famous Amiga games.

Listening Recommendation

 Turbo Outrun (Oh No It's A Trap)

Arranged by Wobbler

Brilliant! Relaxed mood. Great instrumentation. Thoroughly enjoyable, wheter you're an Outrun fan or not. Also, Wobblers new batch of remixes (the first in 6 years) serves as a reminder to the C64 remixing community that innovation is still very much possible.

Random review

 The Last Ninja 3 Intro

Arranged by IceXuick

In its current form this "remix" is not much more than an enhanced SID tune.
Many parts of the original were left in verbatim (or so it sounds), including
the arpeggios, which was an especially big mistake. The addition of effects
and monstrous drums doesn't add too much except loudness. I still much prefer
Reyn's own version of his tune on "Nexus 6581" which has a definite orchestral
feel. That's more fitting for the LN3 Intro than this electro-opera with its
trumpet-like analog lead.

Review by LaLa

Latest Review

 SuperFrog - World 4

Arranged by groovebox

Music is always subjective as we all like different stuff. But listening to this was like a rollercoaster of "oooh!! i like" and "ooooh maybe not". I love the electro backing music, and the drops etc. Sounds great. But maybe using a harder synth sound instead of the original flute sound for the main tune might have given it more power. I also think the tempo is a little too fast for this tune. But hey these are just how I hear it. No reflection on ability and I absolutely love the fact that people like yourself are making awesome remixes of great Amiga tracks :) Please keep making more stuff! I wanna hear more!
