Happy Pixel Day! After listening to a lot of tracker modules, I wanted to pay tribute to old school PC games and demos of the 90s, and what a better way there is than using a tracker! Sadly, Impulse Tracker is way too old, so MilkyTracker had to do :P.


Up until now I had only used DAW's, so this was a completely new territory for me. After a few weeks of trial and error and failed ideas, I got the hand of it and managed to make a somewhat colorful module hehe

As for the samples used, it is a combination of Waveworld, KIArchive and my own :)

While the tensions between the two sides of the Iron Curtain continued to grow, so did the technology to create the so called "Khan", physically and mentally superior human beings. But as soon as this achievement was ready to shine, the deadliest bombs in history fell, wiping out every living creature, except the Khans.


They carried on the violent values of their ancestors and continued the war. Khan against Khan, fighting to death in the ruins of a long gone civilization. Welcome to 199X.

check out schismtracker, then - modern reimplementation! if you have the muscle memory of IT, it'll work perfectly for you

Wow, that was just ... like... taking a fkkn journey. <3

Utterly fantastic work.

love tracker stuff, you nailed the vibe!

Very concise song, that leaves its essence onto a single track, like a train heading towards a specific station.

There's sci-fi elements, a droning feel, and a ever-present emotional lack that pilots the idea of being in an apocalyptic scenario. Delightful chords that focus on bringing in mystique while the main arpeggio keeps doing its thing without overwhelming the main narrative.

I do wish the guitar riffs were much more grittier and contained more highs to better give a deterministic feel, but altogether a very well-focused track ^^
