RIP MAF, I've seen him at Saturne Party 3. He was a Protracker Addicted, really talentous who can talk about techniks and help other musicians with some samples from him. At Saturne, he was playing with a TB 303 and tried to convert sounds from this machine to Protracker, for some Acid-Goa forthcoming songs. Nice "souvenirs".
43 is a shitty age to die of cancer, I often met MAF in parties around 95/98 with the Silicon and Syndrome /cocoon people. I didn't realize he was so young back then, maybe because he was a bit tall and was cool as Fonzy. Kind of person that makes you feel everything will be ok at the party. He was a very popular musician and person. Everyone had his mods in their playlist back then.

Note: most of his mods file in recent collection have the wrong mod format, not protracker , (some other format rename din mod), I had to search mods anthology and some mod archive sites to get the right stuff for mdmod and protracker.

This is devastating :( Maf is and will always remain one of my favorite demoscene musicians. An unique style, and he mastered such a large palette of music genres that he could blend as he wished. Pure genius.

Merci Krabob, Benoît aurait kiffé voir cette compilation sur megadrive.
Cet ami "extra-terrestre" va beaucoup nous manquer, nous ne l’oublierons jamais.

Hey I've got another comment. I had a long estrangement with my sister, we didn't talk for about 10 years. And recently we got talking again, so there's lots of news and e-mail exchanges.

She lives in France. And one thing she just wrote to me was:
"EVEN NOW I regularly find myself humming that ridiculous 'C'est la marmelade de ma grand mère' song you once played to me. Catchy indeed. I quite like it actually!"

Haha... you see it's true, Maf sticks in your head. I downloaded the large collection of Maf past & future songs (including unfinished stuffs) and maybe I'll share some with her.
