Hello everyone, I just heard about MySpace losing a ton of songs from the early years due to a failed server migration and I remembered that there was one chiptune that was only on MySpace that I really liked and now I'm trying to track it down. It was from an Indonesian artist that I think passed away not long after uploading the track and JDDJ3J did a remix of it but it never got a formal release. Does anyone recall this song?

p.s. I tried tracking down all of JDDJ3J's remixes this morning but this one isn't coming up in any of my searches.

Have you tried to search for indonesian artists only? Maybe you'll remember then name, once you stumble upon it.

Also, you might wanna give a little more information? Like, what kind of style was the song (happy, sad, techno, bluesy/jazzy), what sounds where used (SID or Ricoh, etc.). That might help to track it down.

I did try searching for Indonesian artists but his only presence as far as I can tell was on MySpace and that other 8bit music site that died off, both profiles are probably gone now. I think anyone who is familiar with JDDJ3J's discography would remember it, he's only done so many remixes. But if it helps, the original and remix were both a four on the floor techno style with a nice chord progression.

OH HEY I FOUND IT!

Literally was just scrolling down the page because I couldn't find JDDJ3J's artist name with CTRL-F but then I search my old artist name and this was alphabetically almost right after. KISMET.

Now I just need to track down the artist name. This is legit one of my favorite chiptune tracks. Glad it was preserved somewhere!

I think the artist's stage name was Godard.

The track's still available for download on micromusic.net (although the uploader's name there is "Jar-Wo" -- pretty sure it's the same person though).

The same track's also up for streaming on a Godard Reverbnation page: https://www.reverbnation.com/godard
