Game music and demoscene chiptune collide in a multi-genre explosion of audio bliss! Today’s show features music from BreakQuest, an impressive breakout-style game with fantastic graphics and a complex physics engine. The soundtrack is comprised entirely of repurposed demoscene tunes composed by members of Maniacs of Noise: Thomas Mogensen (DRAX,) Jeroen Tel (WAVE,) and Thomas Petersen (Laxity.) Get ready for some expertly-crafted tracker music, and find out why DRAX is Ed’s favorite demoscene composer!
