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. 😃

Necropolo: raKBIT

RAKBIT

by NecroPolo

NecroPolo has produced a stunning album which is built on a vintage prog-sound: from hard as nails to Rhodes-heaven, NecroPolo has got beneath the skin of the pieces and created something which is totally authentic to their spirit.
As if that wasn't enough, this album features the first ever C64-executable album cover, complete with classic scrolltext and the original SIDs that appear on the album, in one PRG!
And if THAT wasn't enough, this demo contains the first ever usage of a revolutionary new SID encoding format which enables any complexity of SID to be played back with minimal raster time, no matter how complex the player! Named SIDRIP, this routine was produced by Hermit specially for this demo, because pieces such as Scoll Machine or Rimrunner needed to feature in this demo, and their players were far too difficult to squeeze into a one-file demo.

Listening Recommendation

 Vendetta

Arranged by Chris Holm

Thank you Chris. Thank you for not destroying an absolute classic piece from Matt. The original tune was deep and atmospheric, and this tune is done in the style Matt may have wanted to do but couldn`t due to c64 limitations. The male monks borrowed from Enigma really sharpen and highten the density to the Nth degree. The tune is on my playlist and in my MP3 player, and there`s no higher recommendation than that. Keep it up.

 Trojan Warrior

Arranged by Dr Future

Oh those guitars are simply Beautiful. These are a massive plus point and the main point of the remix. The drums maybe a little over attacking really for such a beautiful lead. A more sweeping feeling i think might have been the order of the day with this tune.

However i actually really like the remix, it gets away with murder at times but gets away with it because your ears are so listening to the lead sound.

Latest Review

 Outrun Europe (levels)

Arranged by hermitsoft

Fast paced and, from a technical point of view, very well composed, "Outrun Europe (levels)" has a clear edge - it catches the bright pastels of the arcade version almost flawlessly! Needless to say, of all Outrun covers released up to this point, Hermisoft's take on Jeroen Tels original outruns all of them!
