Ohh I remember when this came out. I rode my bicycle 8km to get this demo. Skyflash (oneway) called me and was like "i got the new XAKK demo! come over here!" and when I arrived he threw the disk down from his window on the second floor, i picked it up on the lawn and fastened it on the packet-holder on my bicycle and moved the file physically to my home, ending up in my diskdrive. Ah, those were the days! I didnt even own a modem yet.

... like the multiplexer part ... it is black and we are all waiting for the cameltue and there appears a man in bald ugly but still demoish pixels and we kind of buy it ... music build up and scroller come ... we adore it .... scroller move on and the music envolve and we just go into a state of mind that this was the real shit, this was the perfect screen even all was not perfect but as a part at this time it just fucking rule so hard and was so above... it is almost as the music say - hey looser... here i am wait for it and love it - I love it!

BEST DEMO EVER CREATED ON THE C64!!! The code... and man the music... beyond sound quality, this is hands down the best demo music ever composed to fit parts in my mind. This is far beyond what everyone can see or hear today, I do not understand why but this is just the absolutely best there ever was and will be!

This is so absolutely cool. Loved back then, loved now.

Knatter is a mega SIDman.

Plot a Lot, if this doesn't let you dance, you're dead.

A classic demo group, legends in my mind... wow what demo they created a year and a half after they stopped!

This is one of my absolute fav demos of all time... their beuty lies in doing stuff they felt created action in my mind, and action is something we all feel is good.. wow what a action packed demo this is with true splendid code from the time it were created too(even today in my mind again)... the demo tunes fit the demo so nice and this is probably my fav oldschool demo of all times...

X-akkexpress rocks so hard. I've always loved this rendition of the tune most.

The end part and especially the tune made a great impression on me. This was something of a worthy end to a group. This was something of a mind-expander when I first saw it.

Just look at the scroll part for instance. This was made in a dousin other examples afterwards, not even close.

This is a great demo, but I don't remember seeing it when it was released. I actually never knew Xakk made demo's until they mysteriously appeared among the top groups ;)

The last part is absolutely beautiful, with a great tune, a picture of a guy with an 80s haircut and a hardcore DYSP multiplexer.
