The 4th Transmission64 online demo party was held on Nov 25, 2023. There were several events at this party of note to Commodore remix fans:
If you missed the event, don't worry - you can still re-live the live stream of BIT Live 2023 on Twitch courtesy of SLAY Radio. See the links below!
The entries have been vetted, the ballot has been created, and the votes have been counted - the results of the BIT Live 2023 Remix Compo are in! And the winner is…
Unfortunately, neither Jeroen Tel, nor Chris Abbott will be able to make it to BIT Live this year (see link to FastLoaders' Facebook announcement below). With Jeroen's absence the Saturday schedule of BIT Live 2023 has changed slightly, too: Ziona is now slated to start one hour earlier at 23:00 CET. Attached is the updated schedule.
Back In Time Live 2023 is just a few days away! See the picture above for the full schedule of the event. Also note that the remix compo is scheduled to start at 18:00 CET on Saturday, Nov 4. Voting will take place both online here on Remix64.com, and attendees will also be able to submit ballots in person at the event. Last year the compo had 10 entries, and we are happy to announce that this year's compo will exceed that number for sure! See you all soon at BIT Live 2023!
Talented SID musician, Shogoon, has started a crowdfunding campaign for an
online concert filled with soulful guitar playing, string quartet and vocal arrangements of C64 scene and game music. The concert will take place at the Transmission64 demo party on Nov 25, 2023. More details at the link below.
The following is a press release from the Encore Team:
We are delighted to announce the release of the entire Encore500 album on AmigaRemix.com! That’s right! 21 tracks total so you can enjoy the whole Encore500 album absolutely free. Whether you listen to tracks in isolation or take the whole-album journey, we’re sure there’s something for everybody within the diverse contents. With its massive 100+ minutes of Amiga remixes and 21 tracks by some of the Amiga’s legendary, original musicians, Encore500 is an impressive collective of both Game & Demo music, made with the highest possible production values we could muster.
Encore500 is our 2nd complete, current, commercial album given freely to the scene this year and represents our love of the Amiga-remix scene following Encore64 (which was released for free on RKO back in April). So, you can listen, review & comment on the album’s tracks and we hope you will appreciate the work, invention & creativity which went into making this wide-ranging sequel to Encore64, diverse & different as it is; most of all though, we hope you enjoy the music…

It's short, yeah, but it's *short and sweet*. =)
Helicopters and gunfire, and electric guitar melodies… almost kicks most of the power metal bands out of the charts!
This is just *epic*! Great work.
No idea about the nostalgic value. I don't care. This thing rules even without nostalgy. Yet, since it reminds me of SID arpeggios, I have to give *some* score =)
