Turrican Podcast, by Chris Huelsbeck & friends

BitJam Podcast, Episode #151 - Turrican Special
The classic "Turrican" games brought nonstop action to all gaming systems of the 80's and 90's (including the C64, Amiga, Atari ST and PC, as well as the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo). The beautiful synthesizer soundtracks for the series were created by Chris Huelsbeck, arguably one of today's most popular game music composers in the world. His music certainly played a major role in shaping "Turrican" into a digital legend over the years. Chris has recently announced plans to bring the cosmic warrior back from retirement, with the production of a "Soundtrack Anthology" - an epic limited edition box set of no less than four CDs, which will feature almost every melody from the saga in newly arranged and recorded versions! More information on this box set, which will only be available until June 3rd, 2012, can be found at www.turricansoundtrack.com.

Almost two decades after the last "Turrican" title was released, BitJam pays tribute to these games and their wonderful music with a dedicated podcast episode. Featured tracks include remixes by Chris himself, as well as a selection of fan arrangements, handpicked by Huelsbeck and the co-producers of his "Turrican Soundtrack Anthology".

Mixing by Vincenzo, logo #151 by H2O, compiled by Chris Huelsbeck, Jan Zottmann & Thomas Böcker.

If you didn't know, BitFellas released a podcast featuring music from the great "Immortal" Audio-CD series (contains remixes of Amiga game tunes made by the original composers) a couple of months ago.

Download and Infos:

Episode #136 - The Immortal Podcast (in collaboration with Jan Zottmann)
Immortal 4 enriches the world of computer game music, featuring remixes of the music from 35 Amiga games in newly arranged studio productions. BitFellas pays tribute to the fantastic Immortal project and presents a selection of fine music from the Immortal CDs in BitJam Podcast #136, including a previously unreleased track.

The acclaimed “Immortal” project started to take shape in the mind of Portuguese game music composer Ruben Monteiro in 1997. The idea behind this project was (and still is) to release the greatest soundtracks from games released for the Commodore Amiga computer on CD - newly arranged and recorded in the studio, but not necessarily in a chart-compatible way. Instead, the “Immortal” producers aim to work with the original artists whenever possible: Chris Hülsbeck, Allister Brimble, Bjorn Lynne, Barry Leitch, Jason Page, Tim Wright and many others contributed exclusive tracks in the past. As of April 2011, four volumes have been released in the “Immortal” series, featuring music from classic games such as Shadow of the Beast, Turrican, Speedball 2, Pinball Dreams, Wing Commander, Alien Breed, Lemmings, or Cannon Fodder.

Maybe this is also of interest for the Amiga scene:
Tomorrow (Sunday, 27th of July) H0ffman will release his Demoscene Big Beats in the mix podcast episode at BitFellas. H0ffman is a great musician who contributed to many Amiga demos and intros in the last months (Revision 2012 Invitation, Hot Dots, 8-bit Jungle, H0ffman's RETROspective). He's also running the netlabel Unstable Label which releases fine and free electronic music with mainly big beats.
