After the previous post, a lot more Amiga dance music has appeared. Aphrodite is a huge name in the drum n’ bass scene, and I finally managed to get information from him about his use of Amiga. Starting with the releases as Urban Shakedown in 1991, he used two Amigas with OctaMED to sequence and play sounds until 1995. Then he included an AKAI sampler as a sound source, and from 1996 and onwards the Amiga was only used as a sequencer. In the timeline I’ve only added the releases that are 100% Amiga.
Other new additions include Nebula II’s great ‘rave’ from 1991 (youtube, thanks Ant1!), Hardsequencer’s gabber from 1993 (youtube), the Geordie Gabber Mafia artists like UEP and Smurf (thanks Syphys!), DJ Freak’s speedcore (youtube) and also DJ Scud who was very influential for the establishment of breakcore. Finally, I’d like to mention two obscure Amiga music clips: this and this (last one found by 4-mat). And now, let’s have a rave seance!
Update March5: Mark from Nasenbluten says: These BF releases were Amiga specific or at least contained primarily Amiga internal sound with extras added at mixdown stage (turntables / external noise etc): FIST01-12, FIST15-18, FIST20, FIST23, FIST27, FIST33. Deadgirl: DG700, DG702.
