Episode 047: Just in time for Christmas

Just in time for Christmas, Makke and Jan skip an obvious opportunity to pour themselves a generous helping of glühwein. Instead they get all serious (well, not really), and cook up a delicious Commodore 64 styled music burger for you: Two Christmas tunes make up the bun, a solitary SID chiptune provides the dressing, and between it a solid slab of meat mixed from shredded guitars, beatup drums, and pounded pianos. Also, to spice things up there’s C64-related “news”, feedback, and the usual banter on the side. And the “Classic Remix” segment takes us all the way back to 2001.

Episode 046

Just when you thought the C64 Take-away was back on a regular schedule, Makke and Jan go and mess it up again – this time blaming it on being extremely busy at work. To make things better, the lads provide you with the longest show so far, clocking in at just over an hours worth of C64 SIDs, remixes, and a couple of off-topic memories – including one about juggling floppies on the Amiga. Also, the “Classic Remix” is back by popular demand.

Episode 045

Holy rapid release schedule, Batman! Another C64 Take-away already? Makke and Jan are back to entertain you with even more carefully selected C64 SIDs and remixes – including an 8-bit tribute to the man who came up with the moonwalk, and a trip back to the early days of remixing. Also, we talk about the BBC tuning into the chiptune/remix scene, and Apple not wanting people to run emulated 6510 assembly code on the iPhone.
