I was wondering if any famous producers started out on newgrounds. I was just curious since I'm like a newbie to the community.

Uh the guy who wrote the music for Bit.Trip Runner was originally from NG.

There's also Xcore.
I really can't of these guys off the top of my head, but there's more than a couple.

I don't think we can consider Stan SB "famous" yet, but he definitely will be and he started here.


Intriguing tale, sibling.

Film/Trailer scorer Edgen started here on Newgrounds... his music is used in Hollywood trailers and even some films by major companies.

MrFijiWiji is on MonstercatMedia (not sure if you'd call it famous, but it's an achievement). Although I'm not sure whether he started here or not, I still think it's worth a mention :)

According to Wikipedia(which means it could be bullshit), the pop-punk band Set Your Goals gained some popularity through posting on NG, although that was also due to Myspace and other social networking sites as well.

Selcuk Bor (MaestroRage), JP Neufeld (Rig), Matt Cavender (XKore), Milkman Dan, Nick Perrin and Andrew Aversa (ZirconMusic) are likely the most notable. xKore tours the world now and most people who know anything about dubstep are familiar with him. Zircon is probably the second most well known (has done a lot of film/tv stuff and runs his own sound design business).

But there's no-one truly pop/hip-hop/dance mainstream famous outside of xKore right now (AFAIK).

Space Laces (cornandbeans) started here with some dope trance and dance tunes, but now he releases mostly dubstep and complextro. He has collaborated with the big dubstep artists Excision and Downlink to create Raise Your Fist, which was #1 in the Beatport dubstep chart for a long time.

Kingbastard really never got much traction at all actually... sometimes I feel like I'm his only fan :c

I know this may be out of topic but I'm just curious

Do you guys think guys like Deadmau5 and Calvin Harris started out on forms like the guys you mentioned

I'm sure they started somewhere. IIRC Deadmau5 started out working for a radio station or something like that.

Also, Centra (His NG name is escaping me) is starting to get bigger in the DnB scene.
