Jabun's News


Yo Newgrounds,

For some reason I can't post up on the front page which is a bummer, but what is a person to do, eh? XD

It's been a busy month! I decided to set up as self-employed and start a business as a freelance audio engineer. Doors are open for commissions so feel free to buzz me about pretty much ANY audio help you need and I'll see what I can do. I specialise in mixing animations, but other stuff and challenges are always welcome. 

I also created a website and set up a Facebook Page. You can find all the details about what I offer and my portfolio there:

In other news, the new Lights, Camera, Attraction! EP "From The Ground Up" is up and out! Please check it out on bandcamp! I think it's some of my best production work yet, and the guys are great musicians :D

Finally, I have some cool collaborations coming up soon. This week I've been recording and producing a new Hip Hop track with Cyberdevil. It should be out by the end of the week! I've also been in talks with Hikarian about mixing her new animation "Tales of Zale". Needless to say, I am megastoked to me working with her and I can't wait to get stuck in! I've already seen some sneak peeks and it looks amazing!

That's all for this time. For weekly updates, check out my website's blog (I post each Saturday). 

Take care Newgrounds!

Yo Newgrounds,

It's been a while, but after 11 months of not having the time to work on my own stuff, I've finally released a new track called "Home". You can listen to it here and there's a download link in the description:

I hope to be making more soon, but freelance work / finding a stable job is still the higher priority... 

With regards other things, I've been working a lot with doing the audio for peoples animations, and released 4(ish) new animations in the last few months with them.

And

3 Little Raptors High-Speed Version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x07iFTkSad8 (Because I REALLY am a child at heart XD)

Finally, the audio for the new LCA EP has been finished for about a month now and preperations are still going on for it's release. Unfortunatly, I've had to call the project a day for personal reasons, but I'll be following the EP to it's release before I head off. We hope to make it public soon.

That's it for today, Newgrounds. I'll be around.

Yo Newgrounds,

It's been turbo busy recently (I mean since my last post...) Cutting a long story short, I've been doing a lot of work for other peeps, trying to tie up some loose ends and old projects and looking for a more stable income. Recently, I've also set up some new sites for music:

http://nickstanding.bandcamp.com/ - For my silly music

https://jabun.bandcamp.com/ - For my electronic stuff

http://betterthanthebook.bandcamp.com/ - For my Ska-Punk Project "Better Than The Book"

On top of this, I've also set up a Pond5 account to liscence some of my sound effects and other audio. You can check that out here: http://www.pond5.com/artist/JabunSamples

And with that is an accompanying SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/jabunsamples/

I don't know when I'll next be able to upload something for you guys. I haven't even been able to make any music for myself in over 8 months now.

Still working on that Lights Camera Attraction EP

Pirates!

2013-10-20 09:41:07 by Jabun

It's been a while since I've made a post. Been really busy with various music projects, but it's finally started paying so I'm very grateful for it!

ANYWAYS, Another animation I did the music for has finally been released by my good friend Anthony Houde :D It's another children's animation about Pirates :D Please take a gander and help support our little animation team by purchasing a download if you liked the song :D Here's a YouTube link :D

The Pirate Alphabet

In other news, I should have a cover song coming out soon with one of the voice actresses I'm workiing with Sheila :D Looks to be good fun and it's very nearly done, just waiting for files to mixdown.

Future projects? The Skyreef game is going underway. Should have a trailer out for that soon (The voice sounds amazing XD), and I got a s**tload of music still to write/produce XD. Best get to it. I should also be releasing more animations soon (though a little smaller) with The Pirate Alphabet team too, though it's gonna be nice to have a little break.

Finally! I've been picked up for music for a pokemon parody animation! :D Really looking forward to this, as it'll be another challenge and a change of genre to what I'm used to XD

Loads more stuff going on, but I think that's all I'll say for now XD

Ciao Newgrounds!

New YouTube Channels and new Track "Distance" :D

2013-09-17 08:37:36 by Jabun
Updated

Heheh! 2 weeks seems to take ages to roll around!

First thing on the list of updates, I've started up 2 new YouTube channels for my music projects. I figured rather than just having all my mumbo jumbo in one place, I'd separate it out so that people can subscribe to only what they're interested in.

The first channel is for my Ska/poppunk project Better Than The Book. You can check it out at http://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialBTTBMusic. There is also a bandcamp page where you can purchase the One Small Step EP too. http://betterthanthebook.bandcamp.com/

The second channel is for my electronic music project under the name Jabun. You can check that out at http://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialJabunMusic. I've also made a bandcamp for this page too http://jabun.bandcamp.com/. Unlike Better Than The Book however, most of these tracks are free (as are some on my soundcloud), but I've left you the option of making a donation if you wish to (also you get to chose your preferred format :D). Any money I can make from music goes into fuelling my studio so I can make even better music for you.

If you like the music, please feel free to subscribe or support the projects by downloading the music. It's always a confidence boost to know that people out there are actually listening XD

On that topic, I've also released a new track "Distance" which is available here. It's an ambient track for my girlfriend which sort of came out from my feelings of both the happy and sad parts about being in a long distance relationship (as well as experimenting with new sounds). I'm hoping that downloads for this will help towards the travel costs to see her (or at least that's the idea), so if you like it, please download a copy; it'd mean a lot :D.

In other news, there's been some delays with the latest animation collaboration, but my job on the audio is pretty much done :D. We hope to be releasing it at the end of the month. Hope you peeps like Pirates!

That's about it for news. I hope to be releasing some more music soon, though things are very busy at the moment.

Until next time Newgrounds!

Free new EP "Crow's Wing Vol. 1"

2013-09-02 15:17:29 by Jabun

Yo Newgrounds :D

Well I FINALLY got permission from my old bandmates to release this EP of revamped recordings, and it's free right here on Newgrounds :D. The EP is a collection of tracks by my first ever band "Crow's Wing" from back when I was 14-18 (long time ago now XD), which were recorded back in 2007-8 and released here on Newgrounds by my brother Mimeo. Now, 5 years later, and with much more experience producing I've gone back to make them sound a little bit more commercially acceptable XD. No new audio was recorded, just a heck of alot of mixing! I hope you guys enjoy it:

Crow's Wing Vol. 1
01 - Black Ice
02 - Free of Routine
03 - Philosophical Moped
04 - Which Way's South

You can also listen to the whole thing as a YouTube Playlist here.

In other news, I should be releasing another children's animation with Ektinkt very soon. Just waiting on the final voices right now, then I can finish the audio and Ektinkt can finish the animation :D It's sure to be Schweeet!

Finally, if you're interested in what I did with my weekend, my brother Eamon did a Vlog on it and posted it to YouTube. I shan't give any spoilers, but lets just say it's a little a-maize-ing ;D Sorry, that was really corny XD. Anyways feel free to check that out here.

Much to do and that I haven't mentioned, but that's all that's important on the update front.

OH! And I found myself a lovely girlfriend ;D

Ciao for niao Newgrounds!

Busy Busy Busy! (New tracks too :3)

2013-08-19 13:13:45 by Jabun
Updated

Where to start! These last few weeks have been megahecktic!

First of all! I've uploaded some new tracks :D The first is a song by a friend of mine Clare Jeffrey which I produced called "60 Days". You can check her out on Soundcloud if you'd like for more of her musical endeavours! Now since I had all the recordings at my disposal, I decided I'd take a break to do a remix too. Here are the results: "60 Days [Jabun Orchestral Mix]" Hope you guys like it :D

On a slightly different note, things have gotten pretty hectic in other areas of my life, so I've unfortunately had to cut down on some projects. Here's an 8-bit orchestral piece I was doing for a game project: "Piggyback Ride". It's a shame it couldn't be in the game, but oh well such is life...

Meanwhile away from Newgrounds I've been working on music for an upcoming game SKYREEF! It's still in the works, but I should be recording some guitars with xIIInon for it soon. Here's my first contribution to the game, a boss theme for a guy called Crowley. For updates on how the game's progressing feel free to follow the development on Twitter! It's sure to be alot of fun :3

Another cool thing to happen in the last few weeks is an animation by Ektinkt I did some music for The Dinosaur Alphabet hit over 100,000 views on YouTube! (145k as I'm writing). We're already working on a sequel for the near future! Hope you guys like pirates! XD

Lastly, expect a mass upload of music in the near future :D Over the past month I've been revamping some recordings from my teen years by my first ever band Crow's Wing. You can find the original versions on my brother's old and dusty account mimeo, but expect to hear new and improved mixes of "Philosophical Moped", "Black Ice", "Which Way's South" and "Free of Routine" in the near future XD

Oh! Thanks to all the people who voted for me in the Epiphone Coronet design contest, it really meant alot :D No prizes this time around, but 4th place in the UK is pretty darn cool, and I beat my brother which is the main thing XD Cheers!

RIGHT! Back to work! There is much to do XD

Ciao for niao Newgrounds XD
