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. Some of the songs are dated 1994-1995 but I cannot verify all of them.
I think that Gustaf Grefberg went through a “phase” at the time, hence the “World of …” naming.
I especially like the “World of Unicorns” song. It’s not everyday, a song this is so emotional from the “King of Doskpop”.

The song ‘Claustrophobia’ is super cool and characterize the ‘Doskpop’ style, as he called it. The ‘Doskpop intro’ are a slow version of Claustrophobia, but in only 4 channels (MOD).
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‘?
