Released: Friday, July 07, 2006

Damn! Time flies when you're having fun or not.
Today it's my 34th birthday and instead of recieving presents, I give you one.

Episode #8 is a liveset performed by Jeroen Tel/Maniacs Of Noise which he did on March 24th this year on the dutch WeekendXL radioshow.
It was recorded by Earthshaker and I edited and cleaned it up a bit.

Okay then, enjoy the podcast and i'll be going on to the next 34 years. At least!



 


Episode #7 - A Tribute to Edwin van Santen


Released: Wednesday, June 21, 2006

It seemed today would be just another day at the office but then I opened the Commodore 64 Scene Database and noticed a new topic about Edwin van Santen.

First a rumour but later it was confirmed; Edwin van Santen aka EVS/20th Century Composers passed away on May 24th, 2006 due to lungcancer at the age of 32.

The news was recieved almost a month later by the C64 Scene.
Edwin quitted the scene somewhere in 1994 and moved on as a hardcore techno producer and lost contact with the C64 scene.
I'm not that familiar with that side of techno but reading the responses on several forums he was a quite wellknown and successful producer.

Edwin is no more but his music lives on.
He meant a lot for the evolution of the demoscene and inspired dozens of people to start composing on the C64.
That's why I dedicate this podcast to him and his music.

I hope you enjoy this one.
Maybe you discover that he made that tune that you always whistled on the way to school back in the days...

Edwin, rest in peace!
