your favorite all time computer musician and the reason why?

category: general [glöplog]
Thanx for all this "feed back". You can also post more musicians if you want to. I try to find some good musicians I never heard from. :D For example I never heard of "dizzy" in the time he was active, but his songs are really goodies. Try to find some more good surprises like this. Also the chip musicians are welcome.
My alltime favorite for chiptunes is scavy. :D

Thank you.

Please, also try to explain why. I'm very interested about the reason, to better understand the songs.

In the demoscene and tracking community I'll have to second Shifter on dizzy - what awesome tracks that guy pumped out.

H.Kyllonen (kyoto)
Jean9 made some good tracks as well.

Melvyl of hellven kicked my ass so many times.
Xerxes had a great period around 99.

Necros made amazing tracks (martian lovesong is so "omfg wtf bbq")

Mortimer Twang has the groove.
Willbe aswell.

There are so much good ones to mention, so crazy a few mentionned them.

One of my fave might be bogdan then, stupid breaks with cute rabbit leads FTW.

in mod world it'd be another vote for dizzy here, for pure musicianship. and nuke/spaceman/atjazz/whatever hes going as these days behind him. :)

Mod wise, really, the shivers were with Heatbeat and earliest Nuke's work (Seeing is Believing music remains something beautiful to me).

Heatbeat was incredibly good at making stunning melodies mixed with a very high sound quality both mixing and sound design.

Well, to be honest, most of the finnish musicians were good back then (Strobo, Heatbeat, Dizzy, Groo...)

Ever listenned to a module of Warder?
This guy was doing incredible celtic influenced cinematic tracks.

And ever heard about Chris Jarvis?
This guy made really good songs with worked progressions...

Cinematic celtic music? le truc ringard à base de cornemuse et de quatre quart breton ?
Tu commences comme ça, et tu finis à t'écouter la Céline Dion/BO de Titanic à fond dans la Fuego.

I like dr. awesome, perro, moby and jogeir liljedahl on AMIGA. They are very melodious.

Tommy was a friend and did some nice techno songs. His songs with harddisc stolen on 680xx.
Ripguy also did lotsa good stuff. Tough also all his songs & computer were stolen on 680xx convention. There was a techno song called "orgasm" that was very good that time. :(
Nevertheless, tommy became money for a new harddisc from his friends there and ripguy got the 1st price from lazer, because his computer was stolen. That was friendship. :D

and jogeir RLY loved many other musicians I think :)

@oxb: stop saying bullshit, there are no real commercial or lame genres, there are only commercial or lame ways to work on them (progressions for example).

and impulse tracker > * definitly.

why? were they lame?
added on the 2007-06-26 14:43:50 by seppjo seppjo
No, they are far from lame, it's just your delivery that made me chuckle.
added on the 2007-06-26 14:57:17 by okkie okkie
@seppjo: to say you enjoy them is quite what a lot would have said, it's quite common I mean.

And by the way Jogeir weren't accused to have ripped a lot of melodic ideas on other musicians?
