The Lobby / Any interest in a new project of mine?
« on: August 14, 2012, 18:59:19 »
(Posting this in a few different places...)

If I were to put together a list of the top 100 tracker-musicians of all time, do write-ups for each of them one at a time, and posted them to my website, would anyone be interested? Would anyone care? Or would I just risk pissing off what's left of the tracking scene Novus-Revolution-style? ;D

Reason I ask is that about a year ago, I started up a pretty ambitious personal project... I put together a list of every tracker who had at least 1 song in my playlist, augmented that list with a whole bunch of other trackers whose music I'd always been curious to hear but I'd just never gotten around to, and then started downloading *ALL* of their songs from the Modland FTP site. I'm about halfway through my artist list, I've listened to at least part of tens of thousands of tracks, and I've kept over a thousand new tracks for my collection.

It got me wondering about if there was any way to share some of the songs I've found with a wider audience, the way I used to do more regularly with my website, and that's when I came up with the top-100 trackers idea. But I could also see it coming across as more of my trademark Novus arrogance, so I figured I'd bounce it off of you guys first.

If I do it, it'll be my list for sure (hey, my time, my work, my website, so it's my list!), but I'd certainly solicit feedback from other fans of tracker music first to make sure I'm not missing anyone good.

So, what do you guys think?

Sampling / Did somebody say... free samples?
« on: November 29, 2007, 16:06:11 »
With all of the myriad message board threads out there started by people looking for free samples, I figured it would be helpful to put together a list for my own use. And then I figured it might be nice to share that list. So here. :)

It's the first entry right there, dated today.

Help me find that... / Basement Swingin' - by Glee
« on: October 22, 2007, 12:32:53 »
Anyone got this one? It's an old club tune circa 1999 called Basement Swingin' by a tracker named Glee. The file was an XM.

From an old long-dead file listing I've found it looks like the ZIP file for it was just under a meg.

A few years ago I tracked down Glee and e-mailed him, but he said he'd long ago lost the file in a hard drive crash. Bleah. :-\

If anyone has it, I'll be your bestest friend forever! :angel:

(Or maybe not.)
