Popular remixer Peter W, who has been a frequent contributor of tunes since his debut in summer ’07 and the 2008 Newcomer Of The Year winner in the annual Remix64 Awards, has also put out some really good C64 & arcade-themed remix songs. One of my favorites is based on the popular Konami 80s arcade/NES shooter “Nemesis”, which old-school US gamers like myself know as the game’s original US/Japan title-“Gradius”. For this version the original music is covered with additions of arcade machine sound effects at the very beginning and end of the song, even ending with the classic “Game Over”.

You can download this song at RKO (Remix.Kwed.Org) by clicking on the link below:
This is one of 20 songs (actually, now 21-a few hours after this post he uploaded a new remix to RKO) by Peter W and one of over 2600 songs you can download for FREE at RKO, no registration required. There is one catch though: To keep bandwidth costs reasonable there is a limit of 50 downloads per IP per hour (a download is when you listen to a song even if you don’t save it to your PC). But unless you’re only listening to a few seconds of a song before going to another one, not really a problem.
(Disclaimer: Per their own disclaimer/fine print, all songs on RKO are assumed to be freely distributable. They generally are submitted by the composers/arrangers/remixers themselves)
