This year we invited everyone to join the Back In Time 2019 Remix Competition! This is the first time we hosted such a competition, and this year’s theme was Commodore-related music by Rob Hubbard and Matt Gray. We received 15 entries! Thanks to all who contributed with their remixes, we couldn’t ever imagine that it would be this popular!
Congratulations to the winner, SIDNIFY, who remixed both Gray and Hubbard with his remix Stealth intAIRsection! Also a huge shout out to the the other medalists, Slaygon and Mordi & Lea with their Lightforce remixes! As it turned out, all the winners were present at the event and could receive their medal on stage! And thanks again to all who sent in their remixes! You are all awesome, and all the remixes are great!
Voting took place at the event, and in order to vote, participants had to be present through the presentation of all the remixes. The remixes were played anonymously. Each participant would select the three songs they liked the best, and range them from 1st to 3rd. 1st place was worth 5 points, 2nd place was worth 3 points and 3rd place was worth 1 point. Slay Radio then went through all the votes and counted them, at least twice!

The entry must be C64 / Amiga related and be either a remix of a tune by Rob Hubbard or Matt Gray, or be a remix that includes identifiable parts from at least 2 tunes composed by either Rob Hubbard or Matt Gray, and no other composers. In either way, one or both of these composers need to be present in the remix.
Who can attend?
Everyone can attend. We accept remote entries, there is no need to be present at the event when your remix is blasting through the speakers, though we strongly encourage it!
Since it’s a remix, we don’t expect a completely original tune, but the more it stands out from other remixes of the same track, the better. We do allow for new self-composed elements, as long as the theme of Rob Hubbard / Matt Gray is intact.
The entry must not contain copyrighted material such as samples from published remixes or other licensed work.
The entry must not have been previously published.
It’s your remix!
The remixer will keep all rights to the remix, but the organizers of Back in Time 2019 will be allowed to play the remix at any time during the festival.
Format: .mp3, at least 192 kbps
Length: not shorter than 2 minutes and not longer than 6 minutes.
