I nominate F-777.

Now for real...

I nominate T3animator. He thinks he's bad at FL Studio, but he is so wrong. Don't let the low scores fool you, a handful of his songs are surprisingly very well done, even though he has such little popularity. Here are my favourite songs from him:

Although a few of his songs are slight let-downs, most of his songs are great, with a lot of variety and uniqueness to them.

Anyway, now, because I'm self-centered and greedy, I'd like to nominate myself...

It all started 4 years ago when I decided to start learning the piano. I found a big interest in music, and it wasn't too long (OK, maybe it was a little long...) before I got FL Studio 8, and started producing, and I've been producing for a little over a year, I think. My first songs were horrible, and I thought there wasn't any hope for me, but recently, for some really wierd reason, I've been getting an unusual amount of positive feedback on my new songs. At first I only made melodies of songs with Finale Notepad, and transferred those melodies to a friend of mine who added instruments, since I didn't have FL Studio, but once I got FL Studio, I started composing on my own.

My first proper song with FL Studio was Distant Seas, which naturally was covered with FL presets. I soon moved on to my song Mass Illusion, which was still covered in presets, but at least was listen-able. After that, I submitted quite a few songs and some remixes. My songs started getting good ever since I submitted my All Hail Windows tracks, which are songs made entirely out of XP sounds and drums. From then, I submitted Windows Wars (a combination of loads of Windows sound effects, including Vista and Windows 2000), which is currently my best track with 16 reviews all 10/10 and 1 review an 8, soon after I finished The Essence of Time which was my first proper attempt at classical/hip-hop and then my latest right now, which is Power of the Piano, and has 5 10/10 reviews.

I played around with a lot of genres throughout my time producing, including Hip-Hop, Jazz, DnB, Heavy Metal, Rock, and Dance, but I seem to do better in a mixture of Classical and Hip Hop or Dance. I'm also almost done with an Album I'm doing with Scooter-16, called Supernova, and I currently have around 10 songs dying to get submitted. Although I focus quite a lot more on reviewing recently (my reviews are terribly long), I still continue composing, and who knows, maybe some day I'll submit a song which is worth downloading XD.

Anyway, that's pretty much my story :3.

I nominate myself.
I have been making music for 3 years now...I don't have any form of a fanbase, not many people ever listen to my music, and I work very hard on my songs. I try to make a unique sound which is unheard of in alot of songs here, and I think I deserve it for all this hard work and no one to listen to my music?

DJ-Chilvan is an amazing artist. He definitely deserves a spot in this thread, and a lot of his songs deserve a spot in the top 5. He's good at making classical (clicky), dance (clicky), techno (clicky) and even made a few good hip-hop and rock songs too, so as you can see he's an artist of many genres. My faves from him are:

He definitely qualifies for this thread, and I'm sure that if you take a look at his audio, you won't be disappointed. His songs, due to 0-bombing, never become popular, but give him a chance, and see what I mean when I say "his songs rock".

Zomg, ai am laik teh beest underdog fainder.

These tracks are in no particular genre and are made mostly with Logic 8 but also Sound Hack, a Boss DR-110, some 1980s Yamaha keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars and a broken banjo.

Thanks!

So to me this thread is another prime example of a good idea gone to the dogs. As it stands now, this is just another audio advertisements thread (mind you, at least here people post reasonably well written bios and explanations of their work). Just wanting to know how we could shape this thread up a bit

What I mean is, there's a reason why people who nominate themselves don't get attention. Cause they suck. So I checked out some of the people who nominated themselves, and all it is is one instrument and a drum. That's music? Fuck that.

You guys want REAL music?

How to fix this thread? Simple. Don't allow people to nominate themselves. Furthermore, require that, once someone is nominated, other people have to second the nomination to prevent someone from using an alt. Of course if someone nominates an artist who is clearly crap, then it makes it all the more obvious that its an alt and they should be banned from the BBS anyway. Poof, problem solved.

Hello,i am an amateur at making music, and am currently working at six new songs to release in a bundle. I use garageband, mainly because i am to lazy to either learn how to get logic studio for my mac free, or to learn anything else. I do not use ANY preset loops and i am technofanatic.

Another guy worthy of being checked out is Calamaistr. Now, I know several of you APers out there can be pretty off-put on his overstated and brash opinions on music, but I think at the very least a lot of his songs are interesting and unique that at LEAST warrants some listening, especially if you are sick of the ho-hum generic 8-bit music that doesn't try or other songs of that nature.

Ahh your to kind, i do have a major shortage on reviews ;(

well right back to you btw, people should check out your music sometime too.

Says one of the guys that nominated himself.

The whole idea of this thread was for people to nominate people that deserve more attention, not to assume you, yourself, are worthy of more attention. Leave that for the others to decide.

I'll nominate myself. I've posted upwards of 40 songs on Newgrounds to this day (and I'm about to post another). I don't get much attention though; I don't think I'm a great artist, but I do think I'm improving.

I've been doing music for almost two years now, and I write a lot of things for short films and freebie games. Sometimes my work gets a little attention, but most of the time, I'm just another faceless NGer.

http://dopedgod.newgrounds.com/audio/

crap.. i forgot about the ''something about yourself" part... anyway, i am 21 and go to college. I go by dopedgod and have been playing guitar for about 2 years now. Even though its nothing compared to a lot of musicians here, i think i am not bad, if not alright. I played with 2 bands before the current one i am in, but the whole punk, rock 'n roll scene got old for me. So I started playing with the people i play with now and formed Radio for the Daydreamers, sharing the sad knowledge with my band that most of our post-teenage years have just been a haze or a Daydream. We realized that when we listen to music, we dont just listen to one genre. I am more ambient rock (radiohead, pink floyd), post-rock(a silver Mt. Zion) and metal (meshuggah, opeth) oriented, while other members of the band range from jazz, hip-hop, classical, Indian folk and others. So we decided to not worry about what genre we belonged to as long as we enjoyed making music... this band is an attempt to take elements from post-rock, dark dissonant noise rock, and mix it with elements from gorillaz, jazz, and tool...
that might've been too long, but i just wanted to tell everything i could at this point...

Dang, looked like this would almost be a page with no self nominations... oh well.

Self nominations are just sad really. There is an audio advertisements thread, and thats where that sorta thing should be done. Doing it here really does just look desperate, and makes me for one, NOT want to go and check out that persons stuff.
