Response to The Underdog List Feb. 10th, 2008 @ 05:24 PM

Well, I've been watching this thread awhile (with my hopes up, lol) but i'm going to nominate myself, i guess. I would've much rather been "discovered" haha, but oh well.

I've been DJing longer than i've been producing, probably 6 years or so djing, and about 4 producing. I haven't had time lately to "hone" my producing skills due to hopefully graduating college this year/work/djing. I've djed in the greater Pittsburgh area, Ohio, and Washington D.C. with the likes of Richard "Humptey" Vission, David Garcia, Uberzone, and a host more (i was an opener, of course, haha). To produce, I am currently only using Fruityloops. I merely only use it for the tracking though, since it's comfortable for me. I don't think I ever really used much if any of their presets. I mainly use a host of thirdparty plugins/presets/effects/vst/etc. At my cousin's studio in D.C., for our label beatfoundation.org, we have just about anything and everything to use. I also just recently bought a midi keyboard and waiting for it to arrive, as most of my hardware is in D.C., 3 hours away :-/

Here is a link to my tracks, hope you enjoy! http://bgong.newgrounds.com/

I'm mainly focusing on electro/progressive house at the moment. But i love minimal and breaks, and would hope to merge those sub-genres into my tracks in the near future.

Hmmm, I remember those two. I never really attended the forums back in the day, but I remember xbrav being featured once (old newgrounds design.) He had some great video game tunes, good piano stuff. I remember downloading the pokemon battle theme off of chesder years back. Those were the days...

yuuup.

Interesting fact - XBrav actually signed up the day before me - so technically he has more seniority than even I do :P - but he let himself fade away..

and xbrav and chesderman actually know each other irl - interesting facts :P

also theyre both canadian - Rig you should add them to the canadian list :)

I wouldn't nominate him. I heard crappy FL Slayer in his songs. It does make me want to listen. I do, however, agree with your nomination of XBrav.

No, I don't think I know everything. Its just that... I can't really appreciate mentally abrasive slayer tracks... If he innovated that, then I really, REALLY hate him for it. Slayer gives me headaches (unless you vocode with it, then it sounds cool!)

I know I still need improvement, after all my average audio score is 2 and above.

We don't really have a set day/ timeframe when we put out new lists. I think I'll try to get one up this weekend... but I think I'm going to try to get a new list up every two weeks. Depends on how many votes there are for the week... or two.

I would like to humbly nominate myself. I've been steadily posting my music on NG since 2004 (128 songs so far) but I don't get a lot of attention or reviews. I do get a lot of high scores from voters, and I've had my music used in some pretty popular games, which is always great.

So please, check my stuff out, and leave some reviews. I know I at least feel like an underdog sometimes. :)

Ok, here's another nomination. I nominate Gusto.

He makes some kick-ass drum and bass.[eWorm] is a kick ass piece. Its got distorted 808s, and morphy reeses, along with clean drums. A lot of his other tracks are nice. A few have gotten a little recognition, although few had more than 6 reviews. Most didn't even have that many.

I give him my drum and bass nomination.

Still no nomination even though I've had 4 songs in the top 25 in the last 2 weeks :(

Actually I don't deserve any yet so it's fine. My next song though, if it doesn't win me one, I'll be dissapointed.

you shouldn't be nominated. too many people obviously think you're hot stuff already. being an underdog is a bit of a different position.

I had a listen.
You may fit the criteria, but I think your stuff just isn't original enough to be singled out. But let's hear what the other guys think...
