Yo Peeps!

New track for y'all "You Take The Lift [8-bit]", an 8-bit remix of "You Take The Lift, I'll Take The Stairs" by my band Lights, Camera, Attraction! You can find the original here! Enjoy!

Meanwhile, I've been a little ill as of late and my left ear is kinda blocked which has made production last week next to impossible DX (But it's getting better). Nevertheless I really wanted to do something and 8-bit music is a good way to go when your ears ain't so great.

Meanwhile on the collab front, it looks like some of my music with xIIInon is gonna be animated :D. On top of that, some of my own music has been picked up on by dieseling, a very talented animator, and after a grand skype chat it looks like there'll be a collab to come soon. It's sounding swick!

NEways, take care peeps, and hopefully once my ears have got better, I'll be sending some more hi-fi music your way.

BWAMP!

WoooHooo!

Another cinematic collab with the great xIIInon. This latest track "Combat" was an awesome project to record for, this time busting heavy electric guitar riffs within an orchestral setting. It was great to work with xIIInon again, and it certainly won't be the last of our team efforts! The project gave me some nice practice experimenting with recording methods for heavy guitars and I'll be using similar techniques in the future to rip heavy licks in my other musical endeavours!

Meanwhile, it seems that I turned 23 last week... kinda scary, but I guess it was bound to happen at some point XD. What's set for the future? Well, I've been getting back on the electronic front and spent a good afternoon sampling the sounds of fire last week! A tune has started to weave its way into existence by the name of "Arsonist" so prepare for some (hopefully soon) Nu-metal Orchestral Drumstep (you'll see what I mean XD). SOON!

Anyways take care peeps! I've been tweeting alot recently as well, so If you want the latest updates, that's the best place to find me.

Until next time!

New Electro House track with Mattuiop "Happy Uncertainty" and more!

Yo, peeps! It's been a while.

So recently I've been doing lots of collab stuff, and here comes the next piece of fruit of my labour: "Happy Uncertainty", an Electro House track composed by Mattuiop with me on vocals (I also wrote the lyrics). Matt's been a great guy to work with and we hope to be collaborating again in the future. Please check out his other tracks :D

Some more stuff in the pipeline is another orchestral adventure with xIIInon and I've finally got round to working on my own stuff again too (Horray!). More tracks to come soon. In the mean time, check out the loops and stuff on my soundcloud for a taster of what I've been up to and what's to come XD.

Also, my band Lights, Camera, Attraction! should be hitting the studio at the end of the month which I'm turbo excited for. It's been too long since I produced a full band! We've also picked up the pace with regards gigging which is also fun. Not long now until the record deal (Finger's crossed XD)

Finally I'd like to say a big thanks to all the peeps who've been listening to my various projects. Each positive comment really brings a smile to my face and make the next project all the more exciting. You guys make all the effort and stress worth it :D

Catch you on the flip side and keep an ear out for the next release.

Ciao for niao

I had this song lying around for a while, but I've finally uploaded it for download :D. It's a little love song for my greatest childhood fear:

I hope it all brings a smile to your face this Easter (though I should have probably put this up for Vday XD)

Enjoy :D <3

Happy Easter! Here's a little present :D ////(.:OwO:.)\\\\ <3



Yo peeps!

Last week was another full of epic recording for xIIInon. He invited me to rerecord the guitars for his MAC13 entry "Everything We Stand For" and after a little remastering and exchanging of audio, we are please to present the remastered version. Also, thanks to everyone for their support with our first collab "Mountains Of Gold" which last week made it into the featured audio section of the front page. It means so much to us :D

Another thanks goes to the people who supported me in the Avid and Talenthouse competition. Not sure when the results get published, but whatever happens, I had fun and got alot of nice comments on my music.

Future? Well, this week was also busy with recording vocals for mattuiop. I can't give an ETA on our collab yet, but it certainly shaping up to be an exciting venture! Meanwhile I'll be working on some more of my own audio for y'all and will hopefully get some more stuff out soon.

Ciao

Y hello thar peeps!

Here's a little 8-bit tune I made for the March Monthly Audio Contest. I had alot of fun making it as it's my first original (non-remix) 8-bit song. I hope you guys enjoy it.

On top of this everythings getting pretty busy with regards music work at the moment. I've been working on my first collab with XIIINON, a very talented cinematic composer who buzzed me after I uploaded Mayhem Market. We should have our collab (mostly his) track up soon and there is the great possibily of more tracks to follow. As well as this, I've also got on board with mattuiop to help with an electro house project (It's sounding very tasty). I'll let you know how these go as they progress. It's certainly exciting times at the moment!

Finally, I mentioned in a few of my previous posts, I've entered a competition with Avid and TalentHouse for one of my tracks to be mixed and mastered at Abbey Road studios. If you like any of my tracks either here, or on my soundcloud, feel free to show your support by giving a simple vote here. It only takes a moment, but it'll really mean a lot to me.

Title says it all. Now that I've figured out the audio submission thingy on newgrounds, I'll be uploading more often. This latest track is a chillstep one called "Apollo". It's my first electronic track with my own vocals in it. Enjoy! (Btw, youtube's being a bitch atm. Is it a compliment that they need me to prove this is my own work?)

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/526413

Also, it seems i've been invited to do a few collabs with newgrounds! More info on that as it unfolds.

Finally, I got round to redesigning my Jabun Ambigram. Whatdoyallthink?

I finally figured it out!!!! MASS AUDIO UPLOAD!!!!

Ok, so after a good few months of raging at the audio portal upload system, I finally found out why it didn't seem to be taking my files. Turns out I changed the way I encoded my mp3s just before Christmas and Newgrounds didn't like the new encoding. Also there appears to be a filename character limit, which screwed me over on my tracks with stupid long titles! Nevertheless, I finally got round to doing a mass upload for the full songs on my soundcloud. I may upload some loops later as I have LOADS, but for now, here are the full songs:

Diamond Eyes - Nine Fifteen Ft. Jess (Jabun Remix): http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/526075
Leaving Home [8-bit]: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/526079
Comics Are For Kids [8-bit]: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/526080

Enjoy and if you like the stuff, become a fan XD
