I recently had the nostalgic feeling for old school music, especially demoscene stuff. And I went back to check out all the famed people who once active in the scene. And I came across this. This is the xm if anyone was wondering. It was made be no other than that Thomas Bergersen. Yes, that guy. I'm familiar with his module files and his history in the scene, as a demoscener myself, but I was surprised that he did intelligent DnB. Most of his old tracks were techno, and this was the one stood out the most. His recent stuff were pop and techno, how ironic, I guess he missed the scene.
Move on to other artists, where they are now, particularly the people I admire... Wave is still wave. Necros is still famous. Rajunen is still on NG but not active anymore. Jesper Kyd is a full blown composer who's known for Assassin Creed, Hitman and Borderland. Scorpik did Witcher series. Purple Motion is now an orchestrator. Skaven does music for Trine series. Blaizer works for DICE, like the rest of The Silents. Gopher just disappeared. Croaker did Angry Bird, and music by Djartz and also disappeared. TDK doesn't seem to surface anymore, he has an account on NG. Tempest still hasn't got his lawsuit money back from the thief Timbaland.
The other who weren't directly from the scene but known sometime in the tracker scene are: Darude, Aphex Twin, Infected Mushroom, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Venetian Snares, Chris Huelsbeck...
I'm still here, standing on the shoulder of these giants... It's funny to think that I probably started tracking shit and going to the scene, by the time Lioz (Bergersen) stop tracking, left the scene, and went to uni for orchestration.
The point of this post is that we all started from somewhere. Never give up.
