Amiga music recommendations

I got myself two little iPhone apps, SID Player Pro and Mod Player Pro. Both quite good fun.

Thing is, on the SID player I knew loads of good tunes that I wanted to listen to. Despite the Amiga having much better sound than the C64, my memory is a bit blank on what great Amiga mods I should be listening to.

So far I've got Batman, Apolocalypse City and not much else.

What would you recommend?

Do a search for U4IA or F8 (Jim Young) some of his stuff is a bit mad but other stuff is just classic.
Most of, in fact virtually all of his music was created on a standard A500.

See if you can get the trance/techno stuff - "Freudian Dream and Take a trip from me" are excellent tracks.
Actually I have put Freudian Dream in the Zone for you. (Helps if your speakers have a bit of power!)
