Remix64‘s Remixer of the Year Awards 2011 was hosted today on SceneSat RadioÂ with the first part of the show starting off with an extensive recap of 2011, showcasing top tracks of each month and scene happenings. With the second half featuring the actual award show,Â the results have been quite thrilling:
The first awardÂBest Newcomer 2011Â was awarded to SID legendÂ Peter ClarkeÂ by Mordi, who had won the award in 2008.
HazelÂ wonÂBest Veteran 2011, which was personally handed over by Makke, who was 2006s best veteran.

The price forÂBest c64 RemixÂ was awarded toÂWarhawk (HalcÃ³n de la guerra mix)Â by scene veteran N-JOY. The award was presented by Andreas WallstrÃ¶m of c64.com. It should be noted thatÂ Kate Z.Â would have actually won this category with her Tusker remix, if the votes for both versions (vocal / non vocal) had been combined.
TwoÂLifetime AchievementÂ awards were awarded toÂ Jan Lund ThomsenÂ andÂ SlaygonÂ for their relentless service to the scene.
The prime price,ÂRemixer Of The Year, was won byÂ Rune-Bertil’sÂ and presented by none other than o2, who was Remix64’s very first Remixer Of The Year, ten years ago in 2001.

We would like to congratulate those who made it on the lists this year and the winners of each award. Without such a great community, we would like to think that the VGM scene would surely falter from lack of support. Keep up the good work! If you missed the actual event, you can use SceneSat’s reLive feature to catch the show in its entirety. Remixer of the Year 2012 has also commenced, so don’t forget to vote. Here’s to hoping that next year’s show will be even more astounding!
