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

It's Binary, Baby!
by Marcus (Makke) Nilsson (feat. Andreas Wallström & Boz)
Contemporary retro pop that uplifts and amazes. A stunningly original CD in which Makke's personality shines through in every track! Highlights include the "happy hardcore but so much more" Glider Rider, the inspired hard-edged electro-synth and robotic vocals of "Cauldron 2-005", and the " Bonus tracks include Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" and Apoptygma Berzerk's "Bitch, as well as Makke's witty and acclaimed covers of Madballs and Artura, with Makke's Irish accent all but wiping your memory of his Swedish origins!
