1995 – 2015 : There’s now 20 years i’m programming music with my computer with now more than 1000 songs. So it’s a good moment to let your (re)discover some of them each week !
The first one i choose is « Beyond the Galaxy » written in the end of 1996 with my brand new PC Pentium, this track is some kind of Amiga Shoot’m up style. At that time i wrote especially Techno tracks but i touched to all kind of music and writing video games music is allready things i liked. In 1996, i was still working in .S3M file format with Scream Tracker III and after 1 year and half, that was my 262th song.
This module use samples coming from classical amiga set and there are a melody part played with a Piano like « Dream Music » that i really liked in 96. Many times have passed till i’ve written this song and i know many of you also like that track. There a point i notice now, the fact that it sounds like a Rock music using realy oldschool sounds.
Oldschool tracks written in 96 find a new life in this new Jamendo album : Gimme An Amiga, remembering the time i was dreaming i’ll have an Amiga !
In 1993, two friends show me the Amiga 500, this incredible computer was powerfull to play video-game but also for musical creations especially with Sound Tracker software using samples as instrument. During long month i was dreaming i’ll had an Amiga, but i should wait june 95 before i had an equivalent tool on my PC.
In more than 1 year, i’ll composed most than 300 tracks with Fast Tracker, Scream Tracker, inspirated by the production of Amiga musicians as 4Mat, Moby, Bjorn Lynne, Barry Leitch,… This new album was a souvenir from that time. When i worked with just a 80386 computer with 40mhz processor, only 1mo of memory and allready an older computer compare the brand new Intel Pentium, but enough to write kwel musics ! Those one was just a little remasterised to give you more than just the original .MOD files signed by old name Mc Piet
Here is it :), i’ve just added the full RAR pack containing all the modules from year 1996. This critical year is the first one introducing Cyborg Jeff in trackers world,.. with a stupid techno traxx called « Cyborg’s Laugh » and finally Mc Piet let swtich to be Called Cyborg Jeff…
(Jeff coming from a DJ called Jeff Miles, cause at this time the music i let heard to my friends seems to be close to the one from this DJ)
It’s also my first album (K7 album at this time) called « A journey in my mind » that i will soon re-edit ;p
