Members of Mayday on Amiga

Mayday is one of the most famous rave festivals in Europe, and has been running since 1991. One of the founders was Westbam, who formed a duo called Members of Mayday together with Klaus Jankuhn. They played at every Mayday until 2014.

It turns out that one of their releases had an Amiga remix. An 8-bit four-channel Protracker remix, to be specific. It was made by Jan Pravda, who I recently got in touch with (and could after 7 years confirm which of his releases that were made on Amiga).

So yeah, enjoy Pravda’s Amiga remix of We Are Different by Members of Mayday. Bring on the crunch!

There’s many, many more connections between Amiga and rave culture. If that’s your cup of tea, I have a YouTube-playlist, and I’ve written about it several times in this blog. And the timeline is full of examples by now – just search for Amiga and drool at all those rave, gabber, and techno releases from the 90’s!
