Revisiting 1989 & 2017

Some tracks from the B.I.G. Demo (Best In Galaxy Demo) by TEX (The Exceptions) released in 1989.

This demo featured a lot of tunes from the C64 converted to the YM2149 chip in the AtariST by Mad Max. In the process the music lost all the nice PWM effects from the SID chip.

In 2017 a new demo was released (HipSid) which added back some SID effects, and these are the tracks presented in this mix. All originally composed by Rob Hubbard.

The SID-ification code was done by Tao.

Selected and mixed by: Gunstick @GunstickULM

One choice criteria was an okay-ish drum sequence. Many of early C64 tunes had weak drums.
