recently i was mindblowed when i found out that this radix tune was actually an XM:

and then i realized why the song was previously released only in mp3 format: the .XM is a gargantuan 14.70MB.

I hope you don’t mind me picking up this topic again. I found it while scanning through old topics and felt the urge to jump in.

As an old mod-enthusiast it’s hard to know where to begin. Some sugestions seem too obvious to me but I’m not sure if they are obvious for todays crowd. So please bare with me here.

Do you want good ol catchy melodic synthstuff? On the Amiga Lizardking was a pretty obvious answer. He had a characteristic sound throughout much of his tunes (Korg Wavestation ;-) ) and particular style (doskpop). He is one of those guys that was used as a benchmark. ”This sounds like doskpop, this sounds like Lizardking”.   If you ask me this is a good typical Lizardking .mod, if you like this you should download some more of his .mod-tunes since you probably will enjoy the rest of his stuff aswell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv78JqoDuDk

A popular later artist on the PC that could be said to build upon the doskpop sound was Elwood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rN6T1qa9NY



Do you prefere darker and more rythmical music with less obvious lead melodies? Fancy distorted drums? Then Dune might be for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2MUI_Ywk1A



Want tracked chiptunes?

Your fellow forum member 4-Mat is a early, popular, classic composer in the genre: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wZ8jOYPEvc

Another popular early guy on the amiga was Emax: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1-fVb9vZDE

A bit later Radix emerged:

Radix sound on the Amiga (and later on the PC as well) was a big inspiration for classic PC chip-artists such as Loonie:

Some Amiga artists that I personally hold amongst my favorites that might not be as obvious to find for new enthusiasts are:


XTD : He made loads of awesome stuff on the Amiga and went on to do some awesome stuff on the PC as well. It’s kind of hard to pin point his stylie. He works alot with crazy genre crossovers. Many of his tunes are very heavy. Hard techno or industrial/metal guitar rythmic stuff while others are at the opposite end of the spectrum, cute and melodic. . …but the parts i really enjoy are when he does all things at once, check this out, the change at 2:03 makes me smile every time! :

And oh by the way, he has done some nice chiptunes as well ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPeBRDeBCOE


ELF: Another sort of overlooked, super awesome, guy. When i heard this tune by him some time back in the early 90’s I was instantly hooked on the .mod-scene. This is one of my alltime favorites:

CAPTAIN: Finally. I hope everyone has already heard this, but if some one has managed not to this is the time to listen to one of the true classics from the Amiga era. How can you not love this tune!?!
