I suppose we all have our opinions on who the real under dogs are, and that's ok. The fact of the matter is I wasn't trying to advertise myself, if I was, I would have deliberately posted music links in my thread and probably would have only nominated myself. I'm sorry if I came across as just an advertiser, but my post was genuine. :D

Two Underdogs, let me think...

Zeviron is definitely an underdog. He is a little bit of a beginner and his songs are kinda repeitive, but his melodies are so freakin' catchy I just had to add him in here. One of his recent songs does have quite a few reviews, but he usually doesn't have many reviews.

Blackhole12 is an awesome music producer. His songs are amazing and I have no idea why they're not all in the top 5. He did get a front page once and in the late 20's of the top 30 another time, but that's about it. His songs are flawless and I downloaded about half of them ^^ (that's a lot) so he's surely an underdog.

I'm going to nominate myself.

I am doing it because I love the sound of my own work, and because I fit the definition given in the first post. I want to see if anyone else likes it but unless you get into the top submissions in under about 5 minutes (the time it takes for your song to cycle out of "latest submissions") they never get heard again.

Just click on my name, listen to a few songs and give me your honest opinion... after a few people do that I won't fit the definition of an underdog anymore and I can stop crying myself to sleep at night.


Ooh that smell...

Ahh why not, ill be uploading more music every day anyway.

http://calamaistr.newgrounds.com/audio/

Self nominating for underdog.

I have been making music officially since age 12 on a keyboard but have been sitting behind pianos from age 3 and up here and there. I have never taken any lessons so i got a definition handicap (dont know all the terms of music) but i am very well educated in the logic of classical music such as bach used also known as the divine proportion/measure by wich a mathematical system gives you insight in wich tones fit together in certain situations allowing artistic composing such as counterpuntal music (wich happens to be my favorite, but have only recently (last year) started actually executing it, before that i only made flat out melodical compositions)

For program music, im into this since the year 1998 but has been most active around 2002 when i was just living on my own in a room with only a matress, a television and a playstation (the first one).
The only thing i did all day long was make music on musicĀ® for the playstation and i have made over 500 original compositions, and perhaps about 50 additional cameo's on games such as the deus ex theme, zelda and even final fantasy 10-2's 'party' (the jazz version)

One of my greatest assets in making music is that i have the both blessing and curse of being able to 'hear' music in my head in full detail after only having 'actually heard it once or twice. This is also helpful when i compose music on the piano wich i do just as often because i dont need a music sheet, someone can play a piece of bach for me, then go downstairs to get a cup of coffee and when he came back i am able to play all they have played and sometimes even more (because i remember the track from sometime that ive heard it wich is exactly the way i learned bachs prelude.)
I also said its a curse because i often cannot get a piece out of my head, and trust me.. i dont listen to modern music so imagine having a complete symfony in your head with all the instruments in full detail, playing again and again and again, you wake up with it in your head, and you go to sleep with it in your head. I can take it with classical music, last time i listened to something else i almost did go mad. (in this case the track 'got to be there' from the jackson 5... im never going to listen to popular music again lol, the track was stuck in my head 'playing' all day long for 4 days without end and im not making this up.

I can understand that not all people like the kind of music i make, afterall i do not use fruity loops very long and ive never used anything else but music for the playstation for wich ive taken a major liking (program wise, since i play the piano, ofcourse alot different but still) I do not even like cd quality to be honest, im in love with the crackle of records and the crisp of tapes just like how i like my house, creaky wood.

I guess im a bit oldschool and all natural, the more hifi the less i like the music. So when listening to my work please keep in mind, its the composition that counts, not the quality.

Hope this is sufficient information for this underdog thing.
Atleast thanks for reading and if there are grammatical errors. Its allright; im dutch.


Original, classical and retro videogame music composer. (No longer take project clients from newgrounds but if you need a track or two from what ive got pm me.)

Please, don't take me as arrogant, which is the last thing I could ever even think of being (I hate arrogance with a passion), but I would like to give myself a self nomination.

I am addicted to music composition. I have been in music since I was like 4 or 5, playing piano. I then moved on to tenor saxophone and drums in my teens. I am currently attempting to learn guitar. My main problem (and it is what's pulling me down), is putting my musical talents (harmonies are a strong point) on to a DAW. I dont know what the main problem is, but assuming if things went straight from my brain to MP3, I promise you, you would be pleased with the outcome.
I consider myself an underdog because I firmly think that my music is at least good enough for someone to enjoy, I know it aint the best, and some of it aint all that great, but if you ever have any free time, just sit down and listen and review my music. 4 out of 5 people who review my music say that I have the talent, but its that either I'm making silly mistakes or I would be lacking a thing or two.
In a brief conclusion, I am content with my music, yes, I'm still learning but I enjoy what I have.
Just take a look at some of the songs I know you will like.

Self nomination, but not this account.

http://cosmovibe.newgrounds.com/

Like everyone says, not being arrogant or anything. T__T

At this point I'm really just looking for any sort of attention I can get, as I'm getting ready for a ton of music releases soon.

Short auto-bio: Been playing piano for about 12 years now, and have experience with quite a few other instruments too. I've only recently started to use Reason and I'm loving it. One unique characteristic about me as a musician is that I compose in a huge range of styles and genres, so listening to only one of my songs probably isn't enough.

Alternate link to music: http://www.rithum.com/cosmovibe/

I really hope this gets recognized >_>

I have to agree with this so I'm going to have to nominate Blackhole12 as well. Besides being a great producer he's also a great teacher. He created a sytrus tutorial that goes over synth creation with great detail, probably one of the most useful tutorials. One of my favorites by him is On the Edge. A great original work of art.

I'd like to nominate myself.

my profile

I know some of my songs got around 4 reveiws, but most of them are empty. The only reason why those 3 out of 57 songs have that many reveiws is either the song was REALLY good or it was something that just isn't posted on NG to often (I'm talking bout that crappy vocalod song I made.)

about me:

I've been making music about a couple of years. I originaly made music by converting midi files to mp3. Now I use FL Studios 8. I generally make techno or DnB, but sometimes I'll make something out off my range of genres. I play Stepmania, so it's not odd if you find a smfile tha I've made.

There's everything you need to know about me in a nutshell.

Sadly my fan base has never big been big enough to warrent a nomination so..here's my self-nomination: Plasmatic! I haven't put anything in the portal in about 2 years and I thought it was about time to dig up some of the old stuff and see what to put out and what to get rid of here on NG. I just released a new techno/video game loop today, a short but good one, just to see if I have at all what it takes to get back into the swing of things here. Getting rid of a few of my older..less creative or imaginative pieces..I feel like my set of songs is somewhat getting there, where ever "there" is. So this is me here again after two years, just testing my stuff.

Hey guys .
I'm just trying a new approac since I've been constantly zerobombed the last couple of months. I don't get the feedback I want.
I've been writing and record my own material for around 5 years.
I try to play everything myself but I mostly play the Guitar and bass on my songs. There are several exceptions where I play piano , drums , violin and the above.
I don't usually feel this desparate. But it just feels like I'm going nowhere.
Take care.

I guess I'll nominate myself. I definitely qualify, the most reviews on one of my song is four, lol. Anyway, I've been making music on the computer for about 2 years, even though I've been taking pretty big breaks between songs. Anywho, I make a lot of Dance and DnB, and I'm even trying my hand in Ambient, House, and Trance. I started on this profile (this is my only one) so my older stuff isn't nearly as good as my new stuff, and my most recent songs aren't my best, so check out the songs with the most views =D.

Hey Everyone I'm Trypno, I've been making music for quite a number of years, but have only been releasing tracks since about 2007 when I got my computer. I play the djembe like a crazy person, I can also play a little guitar, a little bass, the jaw harp, and I'm basically drumming or tapping some kinda rhythm all the time (thanks ADD). I used to play baritone from 5th grade to 6th grade, learning how to keep rhythm and musical theory along the way.
Unfortunately at this time, I am ashamed to admit, I use Garageband for my music. I started creating electronic music purely for fun, and I find I listen to my music more often than others. Anyway I am limited to Garageband due to financial reasons, I don't have enough to go out and purchase turntables and a mixer as well as all the other cool shit I want, nor do I have my own drumset. But I guarantee that most of my stuff won't sound anything like Garageband because I've learned basically every aspect of that program. Trust me, I don't just copy and paste the premade loops anymore. I don't pretend like I'm some badass musician because I use Garageband, but I do think my stuff is pretty fuckin' cool to listen to, and I just want people to enjoy some kickass free music. So I was kinda hoping to nominate myself if you fellow NG'ers deem me worthy...though I already doubt it...
