ROTY 2016 Awards - Show Report

ROTY Trophy 2016

On sunday, 19th February 2017, the awards show started broadcasting at 20:00 CET from the SLAY Radio headquaters, hosted by Boz, Slaygon and Leonie. The show featured a run down of the last year's events and popular remixes of each months, with award announcements inbetween.

The Best Newcomer 2016 award was announced and went to Armandox.

The second award went to ROTY award regular daXX as Best Veteran 2016.

Best Amiga Remix 2016 was awarded to Rapture for his epic Pinball Prelude Medley.

Best c64 Remix 2016 went to Mordi for his updated version of Why Me.

The special honour of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2016 was given to Ziphoid for his myriad contributions to the scene, and also to Ben Daglish, who apart from being an original legendary composer of the 80s is still active and around in the scene.

Also SLAY Radio listener Maltus was awarded as Beer-deliverer of the Year as a personal award of the SLAY staff for his extraordinary support (like, you know, actually delivering beer from Germany to the SLAY hq). 😃

Finally, the big moment approached and it was time to award the main price, Remixer Of The Year 2016 and it went to MRT, second year in a row!

MASSIVE CONGRATS!

 Supernerd Lightforce Remix

Arranged by Jurek Raben

Jurek raben.. seems this man has a golden touch at the second because everything ive heard from him has made my ears prick up quicker than a fox sensing a rabbit.. or visa versa.

And once again here i am sitting here listening on repeat to another one of his tunes.. this is just absolutely brilliant.. taking a tune and "remixing it".

not covering it and adding the odd trance effect or sticking a vocal over it that mimics the main line.. nor does it cover itself with high processed drumloops and crap like that.. it goes out in the yard with a chainsaw during a barbeque and begins to hack up the rest of its family... bear with me here.. until there are peices of them laying all over the place.. then it hacks itself apart and then with its only working arm.. calls molly mcmastery.. the worlds greatest seamstress.. who comes and sow's him back together.. just with the wrong bits attached.. its the same tune... just with different limbs.. get what i mean?.

probably not.. but then you dont have the same medication as me...
let me put it simple.. its lightforce right.. but its not lightforce 1:1 and for that.. i like it and if it was a woman id sleep with it AND marry.

yes.

 Platoon (Stratovarius Mix)

Arranged by ifadeo

Strangely appealing and decidedly electronic, this remix is not trying to do too much but still achieves a lot. I quite like the bass sound in it and the whole electronic feel that it projects.

 Super Cars 2

Arranged by Espen Gätzschmann / TiLT

This remix is The definitive one to go by of the ones available on AMIGAremix/Remix64. The instruments are very well chosen, the tune and beat is essentially unchanged from the original but while this isn't a factor that would ordinarily speak in favor of the composition, it works remarkably well for the new choice of instruments, and the outro properly nails it for this beutiful recreation. Well done, Espen! (I really thought I had already reviewed this but to my embarassment it seems I never left even a comment until now.)

by PRESS PLAY ON TAPE

PRESS PLAY ON TAPE are legends. This is their third studio CD, and it's a doozy, combining kick-your-bottom C64 remixes with original brain-beatingly good tracks. Although obliterated from Wikipedia by pedants who can't cope with reality, there's no keeping these guys down! Rock on!! 26 tracks of mayhem, a double CD, over 2 hours of music! Comes with a 32 page souvenir booklet, packed with photos of Soren. And some other guys, not sure who they are, but they look dodgy to me... *hehe* This album is not available to buy from us digitally, only from iTunes, but FLAC and MP3 Album packs are downloadable when you purchase the CD. * Note: all preorders have now been sent out * "PPOT delivers exactly what is expected of them, and their fans will love this CD. New fans will without doubt take it to their hearts too, because no matter if you're a fan of vocals on remixes or not, there's plenty of music to enjoy." - Andreas Wallstrom, C64.com
