The Summer Parties - Part 2

EWe've made it to Episode 10! The last episode made me realise just how much incredible music is released at demoparties but then not given the audience it deserves. This inspired me to create another Summer Party show and may even determine the future direction of this podcast. So open a beer, join the party and enjoy another extended episode. Featuring tracks from AROK, Edison, The Lost Party, Nordlicht and Sommarhack plus artists Wayfinder, LiSI, Saga Musix, CONS, Harvey, mAZE, PG, Gasman, Boogeyman, Alpha, Zantac, K-Line, Znurre, Danko, TFX, Graphite 3.6 and NecroPolo.

The Summer Parties - Part 2

The Summer Party Edition

This episode covers my favourite music entries at the Summer Nordic parties; Assembly and Datastorm. Included are streaming and tracked entries plus a C64 SID tune. There were so many great entries at both parties, the tracks included here are only a selection, balancing styles and compo categories all whilst needing to working within the context of this show. If you like what you hear in this episode - please do check demozoo.org where all tracks - and much more - can be freely downloaded. This episode features artists including Notorious, Ephmerix, HBR, Roz and Yzi, Florida Man, Jumankeissi, Buzzer, Jon Tardis, Chipremacy, Downgone, Rapture and Serpent, Mygg, Amiga Junglism, Vedder and Nightbeat.

The Amiga Remixed

Featuring the best remixes of Amiga game and demoscene tracks. Despite using modern instruments, many remixes still sound like poor substitutes for the originals. Here, I present what are in my opinion, the better remixes; bringing modern production values to the old classics. Featuring remixes of Gods, Cannon Fodder, R Type, Jaguar XJ220 and demoscene tracks including Space Debris, Hyperbased and more.

The SID and Paula Show

With special guest, the Yamaha YM. Comparing the soundtracks from games and demos that exist on both the C64 and Amiga. Featuring R-Type, Turrican 2, Shadow of the Beast, Supremacy, Speedball and more. Due to the limited number of games released across both 8 and 16 bit platforms, some of these tunes have been featured in previous episodes of Bitstream - but never in this format. Bitstream - now with added XCopy Boing!

Memories of the Commodore Amiga

Covering my first impressions of the Commodore Amiga as a 14 year old; the single experience that sealed the fate of my poor Atari ST. In this episode I cover the best game and demo soundtracks that were not only impressive back then, but sound as good today as they did some 25+ years ago. Featuring tracks from Red Sector, Phenomena, Budbrain and more.

Memories of the Atari ST

In this first episode I re-live my first impressions of the Atari ST as an impressionable 13 year old, having migrated from the Amstrad CPC; experiencing the Atari ST for the first time. Whilst both machines contained a near-identical sound chip, the combination of 16-bit graphics and the brutal YM sound chip left a lasting impression. Featuring tracks by Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway, Jeroen Tel and conversions by Jochen Hippel.
