    Diskette Deluxe - My Amiga vol. 1 out on Bandcamp:

    The Commodore Amiga is a personal computer from the mid 80s with sort of an an 8-bit sound architecture ( With my music inspired by this computer I return to the sound I have loved ever since my childhood.

    I take inspiration from funky, poppy and sometimes melancholic music made on this machine, by composers like for example Martin Iveson (Jaguar XJ220 soundtrack:, Barry Leitch (Lotus II Turbo Challenge:, Chris Huelsbeck (Turrican II:, many tunes from cracktros (, etc.

    To compose I used Ableton Live and its simple sampler (Simpler), in which I loaded the Amiga Sountracker Sample Packs (…kerSamplePacksst-xx). A couple of sounds come from Plogue's brilliant Chipsounds ( I tried to minimize modern production techniques like reverbs, EQs etc., as those apparently only damage the Amiga vibes. Sometimes I wish I would have used a tracker, because they can control pitch bends and arpeggios so easily, but I love piano rolls too much.

    Enjoy, stream, download. EP coming up later...
