Howdy all. I decided to get all (_ALL_) of the available music modules from
"The Party '93" and review them. The keys for the speeds and the types of
music are below the review grid. If you're gonna get any of these, get
mod.BananaSplit, mod.HideawayBlues, and mod.Nappyzap. ENJOY!!!


All modules are available at nic.funet.fi in "/pub/amiga/demos/Party93/music"

All were tested with Smartplay, AmigaDos 2.04, on an Amiga 1000 (Lowpass filter
was hacked off a while ago)

People, PLEASE do not send me requests for e-mail!! I am not a mod-server!!

If you have no access to these mods, then wait. They'll come to a local BBS
or something in your area with time. They only came out within the last month.

Thanks, and sorry.

Weren't on the party but I have listened to the top 12 tunes and find it
amazing that so manu tuned contained sampled guitars. Is that some kind of
new/old trend that I have missed? Cool though!

Efunk was _not_ _good_ IMHO. In fact, it pretty much sucked.
Go on, flame me =:-)

It seems to be a trend away from typical "Demo Music" and more towards jazz,
rock, and heavy guitar songs....

I think it's great that people are writing such great non-techno mods
nowadays. To all you mod writers: Keep it up!!

(Except you, U4ia, Keep up the techno! :)
