View Full Version : List of sites feat. game and demo music

2009-07-04, 17:54
I'm maintaining a list of music sites on the forum of a gaming site (http://www.innlegg.no/index.php?showtopic=842) in Norway in an effort to show people how much fantastic music exists in the scene, so I thought I'd make an English version here and maybe get some additional links, comments and corrections :-)

Some nitpicky details.. ;)

radio.c64.org is SLAY Radio. Before it was named SLAY Radio, it was radio.c64.org. This was in, like, 2002 or something. :)

HVSC also prefers to be called that and not HVSID.

Apart from that, great list!

More nitpicking:

"Demovibes" is actually a collective; it's what used to be called Nectarine; Yes is calling it 'Demovibes Radio' right now but it's been Nectarine for almost 10 years. Some folks will recall it as such; specifically some folks in Norway. The "Demovibes" collection itself is Willbe's Demovibes mixes, and those are available on a separate site. - http://www.demovibes.org goes to both, but the collections/mixes are at Willbe's portion. You really should list these separately, or have them as a different category. You could almost put the Demovibes stuff in the 'podcast' area, but it's more a fantastic collection of hour+ mix of tunes.

BitJam and Bitfellas have had podcasts for AGES and should be listed in that area as well, with links to the podcasts.

"DTV" is Demoscene TV. DTV is a c64 joystick that can be converted to a 'real' c64 with some hacks (it's not real, it's actually a separate platform, TRSI has done demos for that platform...)

You're missing the BIG one for Amiga: Exotica; Buzz's site; http://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Main_Page - includes modland, hsvc, and of course the Exotica and UnExotica collections, plus ogg (expirimental) download of the tunes in streaming format.

And scene.org doesn't warrant a mention? Um, why? (:

Newly discovered today:
http://soundcloud.com/groups/amiga-music/tracks - SLL has put some of his tunes on Soundcloud, and is hoping for more Amiga stuff to be put there. Just, please, folks, DO NOT USE FREAKING MIKMOD TO CONVERT THEM.

D'oh. I missed that this thread actually needed moderation, for some reason. Anyhoo, here it is, for public amusement. :)

Also, I guess you should rename KWED to either Remix.Kwed.Org or simply RKO as well. :)

Thank you very much for the input, I think I've fixed them all now and added scene.org ofcourse :o
Now I will fix the Norwegian translation aswell and all should be good \o/
