John Garner Perfect soundtrack to driving through Slovenia’s Julian Alps. Joyful invention, beautifully nostalgic.

Vivy-NX if it were not for Rolling Down The Street, In My Katamari, i would never have found Fearofdark's work. but the rest of this album is just as well put together. if you're in the market for tracker tunes Fearofdark's got ya covered and then some. Favorite track: Surfing On A Sine Wave.

"Motorway" is a debut album by Stephen Hemstritch-Johnston aka Fearofdark.

The jazz and funk grooves composed with changing times and new adventures in mind, taking inspiration from the fact of moving away from home, and being away from family for the first time in life.

This is a remastered version, a project that lasted for more than two years. Every track was carefully re-mixed and re-mastered from the original sources to get the sound aligned with “Exit Plan”, Fearofdark's significant follow-up to “Motorway”.



"Motorway is my first full chiptune album.

Instead of mixing formats, or simply putting together a compilation of songs I've already released, I decided to work on a pack of "new" tracks, with a couple of the old "classics" thrown in there.

I chose to write in the .XM format, and decided to use ModPlug tracker to make these songs; this was the first program I used to make music on a computer, and so I felt like my debut release should naturally be made using this program. Most of the tracks contain my traditional blend of jazz harmonies, funk and chiptune elements.

A lot of big changes have happened this year, both in my life and in the world. The biggest one for me was leaving home to go to university. In that respect, I feel like "Motorway" is an appropriate title. Heading towards a new destination."
