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!

 Ocean Loader 3 (21st Century SID Remix)

Arranged by Peter Clarke

It's always a pleasure to hear remixes done by the authors of the original SIDs, and this one is no exception.

I'll be honest, I was a little apprehensive when listening to this remix the first time, but once I've read Peter's comments on this remix it suddenly made sense to me: the monophonic instruments, the arpeggios, the analogue warmth - all of it.

Oh, and I absolutely love the drums on this one!

Well done, sir, and thank you for this gem!

 Sacred Armour of Antiriad

Arranged by GZILLA

A nice remix on the tune, that alas suffers from a bit of a dodgey piano sample in the beginning. But around 1:25 it gets interesting as Gzilla weaves extra on top of the old tune. He uses some groovy low pitch rumble samples and string kind of samples in a long transition till about 2:15, then he changes style to a more complete, and brooding song with a really wicked background synth sample to make the beat.

He mixes in a bit of sound effects from teh game to some succes. Overall I like the remix, especially how it is very light on the drum track, other instruments are the major players. I cannot easily put a genre on this one, but it's worth a download indeed.
