about

Around the time my parents bought their first pc, a Pentium 100 with 64 mb ram running windows 95, I switched from protracker on the Amiga to fasttracker II for my music.

No more one megabyte songs in 8 bit sound quality and four mono track limit, but the luxury of enough tracks & sample memory to use in 16 bit stereo :) . Of course I abused this newfound freedom, lifting a lot of loops from the Hip Hop music I was into at the time with often questionable results. Creating sort of like party jams, reminiscent of early Frankie Cutlass or watered down Fatman Scoop/Crooklyn Clan instrumentals. Basically a mix of unobscured familiar loops playing in succession without worrying about copyright.

As there weren't cd-burners yet, and the tracks were too big to fit onto a 3.5 inch disk, a lot of attempts at music have died with the harddisk of the machine, but some have been recovered as I sometimes recorded tracks to decrepit cassette tapes, like this compilation of hip hop'ish & jungly tracks made between 1997 - 1999.
