Jeroen Tel

Mountain BreezeJeroen TelA grand, deeply emotional composition.

Nine Nine OneJeroen TelThis is a well known tune in the scene. I think it deserves to be widely known outside of it too.

Pools of PoisonJeroen TelThe bassline from this one has been stuck with me for years. This is something I would humm to myself from time to time. You should try it yourself.


Rocket LifeLaxityProbably my favorite from Laxity. A chill breakbeat tune with that unmistakable 90s vibe.

Prince of VoiceLaxityWhat might sound as your normal electronic jazz instrumental is actually a small masterpiece of voice sampling. Attempted by many, the genre of using your voice for all samples in a mod file has been around for a while, but this is the only song that I know of that actually made it work.

Static MotionLaxityA melancholic wandering in a world of floating notes, dispersed in space by an electronic guitar under the gaze of a memorable and somewhat ominous string theme.


Peek-a-booDRAXA classic from DRAX, it's probably the catchiest of his tunes and one of the most vivid demonstrations of his skill as both a master melodist and an accomplished tracker musician.

A Rose of GoldDRAXA groovy high quality instrumental with a catchy brass-like refrain, culminating with an absolutely mesmerizing variations.

3 monkeys - 1 beer!DRAXA whimsical, slightly mischievous and incredibly entertaining piece of music, which you are likely to enjoy more than you think. The mood grows on you, and you find yourself coming back to it again and again...


going underHunzA ballad.

magasin de jeuxHunzA skittish jazzy tune - playfullness at its finest.

PossumHunzAlways've been impressed with this one. Very atmospheric. Be sure to read story inside the module. Best looped.

scotch and sandHunzThis one is good when looped too - a classic chiptune structure.

the temple gatesHunzTriumphant and grand.

Help me find?HunzClassical Hunz, I would say.

wrong way homeHunzThis one projects urban impressions on me, going in circles in a city.

send me drift'nHunzHunz was one of only a few musicians who actually put vocals into his songs - and did it with amazing quality and feeling.


~~~~~~~.gazela.TitoA unique breakbeat track with a serene feel to it.

OriginTitoAlways gave me a bit of Young American Primitive vibes. One of my favorites from Tito.

Vodka polkaTitoNot only this is a very cleverly written tune, it is also one of the few alcohol melodies that actually sound like alcohol! Best if looped.

the hippo strutTitoGroovy percussion, playful oriental melody.

I can fly!TitoA skillfully constructed eurodance tune with an incredible level of anticipation built-in.

Gulp!TitoA very funny and well put together chip tune. Best when served looped (obviously!)


After HoursElwoodA really nice house tune. As far as I know it is one of Elwood's latest tracked works and it gravitates more towards the sound he has in his mp3 tunes.

DeadlockElwoodClassic Elwood. Most of his tunes remind me of music from such fantasy movies as "Neverending story", magical and moving.

ExperienceElwoodA mix of techno and chiptune.

Fall From SkyElwoodPossibly one of the most versatile and imaginative tunes by the man - great structure and wonderful leads. You can imagine this being a song with vocals.

Feats Of ValorElwoodAnother song-like tune. In fact, I once considered writing lyrics for this one. As difficult as it is to pick a fav out of these 15 superb tunes, this one's most likely to top my list.

HomecomingElwoodA romantic ballad.

Inferiority ComplexElwoodThis is my least favourite, although I love the lead in the middle.

Into The ShadowElwoodI remember being blown away by this tune. With trackers it's important not only how good the music is, but how well it's made given the limited software possibilities.

Little ManElwoodIn the comments inside the file Elwood says he made this after a bad day at school. Probably left many people wondering whether someone had offended him. "Neverending story" does come to mind, doesn't it?"

Neutral ZoneElwoodNice thoughtful tune. Along with Inferiority Complex my least favourite from Elwood.

One Fine Day...ElwoodA powerful ballad.

Shooting StarElwoodA very enjoyable tune and very clever too, not to mention it is simply beautiful. Be sure to play this with a proper xm player, some mess up the tuning of samples.

Sick On MondayElwoodFor some reason many sites showed this tune to be the most popular among listeners. I've found it to be nice, but not nicer than other tunes - simply another outstanding creation, that's all.

Sweet DreamsElwoodThe ease with which Elwood seems to write those leads, the mastery with which he treats sounds and creates such complex arrangements - all of this amazes. But the depth of music leaves no one indifferent.

Unknown FutureElwoodNice techno tune. Always wondered where does the voice sample come from. The melody really carries you along.

Michal Wilczynski

An intimate slumberMichal WilczynskiIn my view, this composer was one of the most elaborate melody writers of the MOD scene. While tunes by other composers entertain and occasionally amaze by their skill, Michal's compositions stand out as tunes which put you to quiet thought and seem to pass on something very intimate. His tunes are incredibly well written and he is one of my all time favourite mod composers.

Eternal travellersMichal WilczynskiEpic melody. Something in it tells a story and I can imagine a writer being inspired to write a novel, based on this.

Evolution 002 part2Michal WilczynskiObviously part of a bigger work, possibly an album. A lot of depth in this one.

Evolution 002 part3Michal Wilczynski3rd part of the series and the second Evolution tune of the only two in my possession. Rythmical, as opposed to beatless part 2. Same lead instrument, victorious, energetic melody.

Far and away, parts 1 & 2Michal WilczynskiThis is the tune which became a revelation to me and it is from this tune that I discovered Michal Wilczynski.

MicroworldMichal WilczynskiSomething scientific and futuristic in this tune. Actually, the way arrangements are made, many Michal's tunes remind of Jarre and Space, but melodically they are quite different. I think this tune shows that - I suspect Jarre would take a different direction here.


Pure InstinctQuazarA really well produced house tune which has a flare of mainstream quality, which was really unusual at the time.

reservoir dogsOrionThis is truly something magical. One of very few tunes to use voice samples. Later I heard the final version of this track, but it way worse and the magic was absolutely gone, so I prefer this version.

PanoramavelvetA chillout tune using various looped samples. Something more common these days, during tracker days it sounded awesome and unique, as it was generally closer to what you hear on the radio than most tracked tunes.
