I've decided to just keep a list of ex-NGers who have gone on to bigger and better things (mostly in drum & bass, because that's what I followed here), for anyone who's wondering where they went and/or wants to see what they're doing now.
I got signed! Check out my latest release on Beatport!
I'm adding a list for those on my "have potential" list who finally got signed. Here be the new list:
Nova [Ammunition/Cognition]: SoundCloud - MySpace - NG Page
Para [Mindtech/Close 2 Death/Ammunition]: SoundCloud - MySpace - NG Page
Centra [Ammunition/Cognition]: SoundCloud - MySpace - NG Page
InKa [Vibration Records/Dubplate Records]: SoundCloud - NG Page
Landscapers [Ammunition/Suspect Device/Mindtech]: SoundCloud - NG Page
Oscillist [Offworld Recordings]: SoundCloud - NG Page
Stan SB [Liquicity Records]: MySpace - NG Page
Ok. I've decided to start keeping a list of the best drum & bass artists on NG. And I mean the best... the people who make pro-quality tracks, and who I feel could easily get signed. So here it is:
And here's the list of people who could be added if they keep up their current work:
So there you go. Be sure to watch these guys.
ALSO: SELF PLUG - SoundCloud
Europe vs. North America drum & bass battle!
Audio forum thread: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/10 94325
EDIT: This battle is pretty much dead :(
Remember to check out my MySpace for my new songs:
EDIT: Collab with IZK done! Check out the demo here! http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /276410
Also: I've decided to rework my remix of Geier's "Solar," because I've learned a lot since I made that remix and it's a great song :D
The Audio Portal DnB section is shit. A large, smelly, pile of shit with a few gems hidden in it. But mostly shit.
I request that it be obliterated, then restarted with a MUCH higher standard.
You don't know how many songs I've just had to vote 2 or lower on, and how many reviews I've left explaining that "this song isn't drum & bass" and how to make real drum & bass.
Honestly, this does bother me that much. Poor nubs like I used to be are gonna go to the audio portal and try to learn dnb there, and get sucked into whatever shit they got goin' on over there... honestly, I think the drum & bass section now is like one of the worst parts of the audio portal. It's in horrible shape.
UPDATE: I'm even more pissed because whenever I try to point people in the direction of real DnB, they respond like "actually this is D&B" (when it's not) or "I don't see why I should do this or this." People here have no fucking idea what real DnB is.
UPDATE AGAIN. I just went through the whole DnB Top 50 5ing and 0ing songs to make sure GOOD ONES are on top... they should make me a mod for the DnB section :D I'd delete everything and tell good artists to upload stuff. I'd delete everything I came across that wasn't DnB.
UPDATE AGAIN. I'm re-reading this and i sound pretty harsh lol.
Well, as you may have noticed, I'm not submitting to Newgrounds anymore. I still hang around to check how the DnB here is going, but the way I see it, it's slowly falling. There isn't much real DnB being submitted anymore - guys like API (Geier), Karbon, Koriigahn (Para) have all pretty much left. Why nobody else can make real DnB, I don't know. The only good Drum n Bass artists left here, in my opinion, are Stan-SB, Waterflame and Quarl.
I'm just saying, I think people ought to get into DnB more, and not that ParagonX9 style crap that's currently being made. We need some more guys like Geier.
So anyway, MAYBE I'll submit a short clip of something, but I'm not sure. Aside from all the non-real-DnB that's being submitted, there's still a crapload of zero-bombers. And that's just uncool.
(PS I'm looking for a new DnB alias, ideas?)
Yeah ok. I'm back to making audio. But I'm still adding finishing touches to Battlefield.
In other news, I got Auto-Tune as a VST so I can add epic vocals to songs now. I used it in a new trance song I made, which will be submitted later. I've also finished a new Drum & Bass song, but I need to fix it a bit. I think it has my best drums yet. I used some new techniques this time, and made the snare in it from scratch. It's pretty cool. I'll submit that when it's finalized too.
K, time to go now. Later.
Wow, it's actually a non-audio-related post!
I'm working on a new platform shooter, called "Battlefield." It's meant to be downloaded, because it dynamically loads all its maps/images/sounds from a data folder to make the game's size smaller, and make it more user-customizable. I made an easy level editor for it, with which you can create your own maps and weapons.
I'm gonna try to make a Newgrounds-playable demo version of it and submit it. I guess I'll just put all the map files on my site and have the game load them from there.
In the meantime, enjoy this screenshot!
WOW! I NEVER THOUGHT I'D ACTUALLY GET ON THE TOP 30 ALL-TIME BEST SCORING AUDIO LIST!
BUT I ACTUALLY MADE IT!
Wow, man, I'm surprised. If any song got there I'd think it was Twisted Realms or Space Invaders, but it's Out There. Well, it IS one of my better songs.
I'M VERY HAPPY! THANKS A LOT GUYS!
So I was bored, and I had some paint and clay, so I made this. His name is Frank.
SAY HI TO FRANK!
As you can see, the 2 latest songs I've submitted (Drive and Pyromaniac) have been deleted. This is because of low scores and the lack of reviews.
SO, I'll no longer be submitting to Newgrounds. If you don't appreciate the music, why bother submitting it?
And I'm serious this time.
If you'd like to continue listening to my stuff, get on over to my Myspace here:
>> Zero Logic DNB <<
Yes, as some of you may have noticed, my new artist name is Zero Logic... I just haven't bothered changing my alias.
