Ben Dalgish made the music to ‘The Last Ninja‘, together with Anthony Lee and ‘The Last Ninja‘ game and music gave birth to a series of games, that has grown to a cult among old-skool game-nerds. Ben Dalgish also worked together with Rob Hubbard on ‘Auf wiedersehen Monty‘.
I went through some of my old data on my storage unit, this morning, and I found some of my old downloads from back in 1992-1995. This also being the reason that I don’t know the source of inspiration.
Back then I had the habit of hunting down and downloading every single file I could get my hands on, by relevant topic of course – And well, I still do that today.
I especially like the “World of Unicorns” song. It’s not everyday, a song this emotional from the “King of Doskpop”
These three new songs are all dated 1994-1995. I think that Gustaf Grefberg, had a theme going on there, hence the “World of” naming.
I have enclosed two numbers of Lizardking, which, originally, is in the XM format. The first track ‘Claustrophobia’ is super cool and characterize the ‘Doskpop’ style, as he called it, and number two ‘Longstabben’ which is a fairly track.
The first time I heard Martin Galway was at a friends house, and he was loading some Ocean game on his Commodore 64. Bam – The Ocean logo appeared on the monitor and the music started. It was the ‘Ocean Loader‘. How great was that! I just loved the tune – and almost all the later releases from Martin Galway.
First time I heard music by Chris Hülsbeck was in the game ‘The Great Giana Sisters‘. I think most owners of an Amiga, know that game. Chris Hülsbeck was the new generation of musicians, with a completely new and exciting sound.
You can’t talk about chip-music on the Amiga, without automatically talking about David Whittaker. At the peak of the Amiga, David Whittaker was everywhere. With his trademark drumkit (especially the hi-hat) and the distorted guitar – and not to mention his unique music pattern.
I have selected some of my favorite tunes from David Whittaker, in the upcoming posts.
I think most people got acquainted with Karsten Obarski through his music editor – the SoundTracker – and the music scores that came with it. And afterwards, a very large number of simple music- and demos discs, flooded the Amiga scene, where the music was composed with the SoundTracker or one of its successors. Doesn’t everyone remember the ‘D.O.C Musicpack‘?
