I’m a big fan of C64 remix music even though being a Spectrum boy at heart. I remember looking over at the ‘fence’ at the C64 through curiosity – one regular activity was flicking through the latest issue of Zzap in the local WH Smiths. There was always a top 10 SID tune of the month and I was always curious what these tunes sounded like.

It was some years later when owning an Atari ST that I got a demo disk with a SID emulator and loads of SID tunes on. I was blown away with Sanxion by Rob Hubbard – the tune that was always number 1 in that chart. Another favorite was Last Ninja 2 by Matt Gray.

A couple of years ago Matt launched a very successful Kickstarter to produce a new remix album called Reformation of his Last Ninja 2 tunes. The fruit of that campaign has surfaced recently and perks will be sent out in the coming months. Matt has now launched a new Kickstarter for a new album called Reformation 2 that will cover off the best tunes on the C64 by other musicians. The list of promised tracks is as follows:

  • Commando
  • Comic Bakery
  • One Man & His Droid
  • Lightforce
  • Kentilla
  • Ocean Loader 1
  • Green Beret Loader
  • Monty On The Run
  • Flash Gordon
  • Nemesis The Warlock
  • Holiday Morning
  • Trap
  • International Karate
  • Autumn Breeze
  • Delta
  • The Great Giana Sisters Loading Theme
  • Master Of Magic
  • PLUS 3 Remaining Personal Choice Selections

The campaign has just 5 days to go – so can I ask to please show your support to this wonderful campaign and this legendary C64 composer. The Kickstarter can be found here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1289191009/reformation-2-c64-soundtrack-remakes-by-matt-gray
