  1. Disco Zax, Overlame, Boneless, heard those in so many demos in the very early 90s, DRAX seemed to rule the demo scene back then 🙂 He was so insanely productive !!!! … well yeah, i’m a big fan of DRAX, more recently, i liked Resolution and Gemini .. Thomas is really the kind of awesome melodies.

    Interesting to hear the analog pops in his Thaw tune … that 6581 DC offset modulated by the envelope, i love it 🙂
