This article will be a “work in progress” as I really want this published, but the research and work it takes to complete will take forever – so this will evolve as I go along
In the beginning of the 90, they were the best on the demo scene.
Future Crew had a flair for the story element in their demos and together with the musical side it all came together in a symbiosis. This was true though, for many mega-demos (or longer demos) but still Future Crew has some flair for the entire user-experience and at the same time show of many new skills and elements that was to be copied and developed further by other groups.
Future Crew had a slight advantage on the music module side, as Future Crew developed the ScreamTrack music software, that extended the .MOD file format from 4 channels to 32 supported in the .S3M format.
Even though the music was very sophisticated and fitted their “movies” perfectly, I never really saw this as music like other chiptunes a bit more like movie soundtracks.

From early to mid 1990’s, Triton was on the top of their game.
Though they only released two demos for the PC, they were both equally as great as any of the great Future Crew demos. Triton understood the need for a great music track (or tracks) in a demo and by the second demo they had the best, they had Lizardking on their side. Now we are talking about real chiptune/demo music.
Gustaf Grefberg (Lizardking) together with Joakim Falk, created their own music style: Doskpop. This is music you can listen to, for (almost) hours.
