That is an amiga remix site. Did you expect them to come in mod-form?

well not in mod-form as it's only 4 channel but in multi channel tracker form such as XM, IT.

An excellent site - thoroughly enjoyed listening to many of the remixed tunes.

By far my favourite is deadly cookie's music, as he's kept the timing, sound and feel of the originals.

Many of the others I'm not so impressed with. In my opinion, they've gone a bit over top adding personal touches, changing the timing (which makes many of them sound just plain wrong), drowning out lead instruments, overcomplicating the arrangements and the overall result is they've killed the feel of the originals.

I'm also a little surprised at people's choices as to what to remix so far - many classic tunes haven't been covered - 80% are lesser known titles.

I'm perhaps missing the point of tunes termed "remixes" (implying they are meant to sound different), but I'd like to see some more releases along the lines of deadly cookies work. In other words "updates" to the originals, with more powerful better quality instruments but the leaving the spirit of the classic version intact and recognisable.

I honestly donīt know most of the music but I do know that "remix" means that it is supposed to be different from the original and the three songs I just downloaded (at 700 kbps) are very well remixed !! Congratulations guys !!!

That is NOT funny.

Considerateness is not part of your vocabulary, is it?
Those broadband weirdoes have once caused c64 remix site @ kwed.org to close because people like you insisted on downloading all in one go!
Think of others that want too, instead of thinking solely in favor of your benefit. Also think that this expensive hosting of *several* *gigabytes* doesn't bear extra costs for YOU, hence better be happy about it than mercilessly make serious attempts to force the site into closure again. my 2c

I guess to avoid this, they should provide a bit torrent file containg the site mirrored so to spread the load out between people that really want a mirror of that site. This could be a way to satisfy both parties.
