Today we bring you the tunes from a lesser-known Commodore 64 title called Quadrant composed by Thomas Detert. While the game might not be all that amazing, it has an awesome soundtrack that will definitely get you moving. We’ve also snuck in some bonus content to showcase Detert’s other work around the time the game was released from the Game On Disk Magazines. Take a listen!

Love the show but I always have problems with your player. It just randomly stops sometimes and I have to refresh the page to get it working again. I have never had this issue on any other site or player, only here. That aside, keep up the great work!
Thanks Doug i’m glad you enjoyed the show! I’m sorry that you’re having some trouble with the web player though, we are using MediaElement.js ( which is supposed to be most compatible as it’s mostly HTML5) but thanks for reporting issue I’ll see what I can do to resolve it
man, C64 music is all the same: fast arpeggios. just could never get into it
fair enough.. its a very focused style of music. i think it’s one of those things you either LOVE or don’t care for at all. i think over using the arps can get really tedious sounding too. there’s gotta be a balance (at least for me)
WOW! What a great podcast indeed !! Thanks for having me and my music in your show ;-)
It was a great trip back in time … Thanks a million, cheers Thomas
My brother just shared this with me today. Nice to get some appreciation for our past work.
All the best from Michael (aka. Takashi) from X-ample Architectures.
