Response to The Underdog List 2010-05-24 18:53:08

I would like to nominate myself and here is why:

-I have only been writing songs for a little under a year at this point, I spent 6 months writing songs, 3 months teaching those songs to a band, cut a self produced EP with my friend Gabe, and try my ass off, and you just wouldn't believe how hard it can be to get people to listen to a new band.

-I recently uploaded 7 tracks to the audio portal which samples everything I do from some of my experimental ac cappella stuff, to funk, to soul, to grunge, and all over the place.

-My sound is pretty raw, what you hear on the track is very much what we sound like live, all of the tracks were pretty much just one take, aside from Living with Telemarketers VOX, and Shadow Puppets I dont really use many effects, just a little reverb on my voice and some interesting vocal techniques that I started using creates our sound.

-I would just like to be recognized for doing my thing, and know that I am doing something right with my sound, or wrong for that matter, just consider my music for what it is, the recordings are amateur, and I haven't been doing this for long. Just go http://vaudevillefreud.newgrounds.com/

I'll nominate myself.

I don't know if I really count as an underdog here, I've gotten top 5 one time in 2008, but most of my later tracks haven't been getting as much love lately. Not many reviews, not as many plays as in the good old days.

Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I go by Kill Bill, formerly DJ NiteMare. I've been on this site since 2007. I'm a rapper/hip-hop producer from South Carolina. I've produced for a lot of independent rappers, including MseeMercury, P Mac, and IMMO Stax. I do live shows all over South Carolina, and I'm almost finished with my first official mixtape "The Illest Sh*t I Ever Wrote".
I don't mean to be bragging, but I'm pretty damn good at what I do. Hope you guys enjoy the music.

People are allowed to nominate themselves. It says so in the original post. So either get over it, or just be quiet about it. Because it's perfectly within the standards of this thread for people to nominate themselves.

I thought that was what you were supposed to do, and if you're an underdog you really would HAVE to, wouldn't you? Maybe I'm missing the point here.

Damn, people can be real assholes on this newgrounds shit. Don't worry about what someone else is doing, worry about yourself

The idea is to nominate someone other than yourself that you feel is under appreciated. But self nominations are allowed.

Welcome to Newgrounds. Also, let it drop. There is no need to discuss this issue further. Doing so takes away from what this thread was originally about.

Just to get this thread back on the right track, I would like to nominate jrayteam6:

All of his songs are FL Slayer metal. BUT!!!! They are EXTREMELY well written. If he had Electri6ity or Prominy at his disposal, or god forbid a real guitarist, I dare say his songs would rival most metal bands you hear on the radio. His songs all have a decent amount of listens and votes, but not reviews. Thus it leads me to believe the same couple of people just stop by to listen and 5 his music. Some of my favorite songs of his include:

I nominated myself once, admittedly, but I made sure that I nominated like another 3 or 4 other artists before nominating myself. If everyone decided to nominate themselves then this thread may as well merge with the Audio Advertisements thread.

You are not supposed to nominate yourself multiple times. Not only that but it's also really lame to do so multiple times.

Also realize that being a douche like this right here will have the opposite effect you want. I suggest keeping your mouth shut and not starting a fight with popular artists who are respected here on Newgrounds. Sorohanro would be one of those. Because if you do people here will think less of you and will ignore your attempts at self promotion.

I would like to nominate EvilHatX:

He mainly focus in the orchestral/soundtrack form of composition. I personally think he deserves more recognition than he gets on Newgrounds. I'm impressed with his works anyways, and I think a lot of people here would enjoy his music if given the chance to listen to it. Some songs of his submissions that I enjoy:

OMG! Audio Portal long time no see (like any of you know me. >.>)

I'm not sure if I did this before but I would like to nominate Smurfbeatz! I remember way back when I first started using the NG audio portal and I came across one of this guy's songs and I was blown away. He is into a lot of genres so there is bound to be something on his palate that you will enjoy. (I mean, he remixed the Laguna battle theme music from FFVIII and killed it!)

But here are a couple songs from him that got me hooked. :D

Give It Up

I nominate JohnWE.

He records himself playing piano live, and his main genre of choice is a form of contemporary jazz. I've really come to enjoy this guy's music because truthfully, it reminds me a lot of when I had a piano and was able to play everyday. His playing skills are not extraordinary, but he is quite talented all the same.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people would get a lot of joy from hearing his music. Some of my favorite submissions of his would include:

I'd like to nominate AphoticAthanasy, firstly.

Many might know him more recently from entering the recent Robot Day. I did what any onlooker-of-potential-competition did and listened to Fire's Depths, his first entry to the competition and to NGAP (go figure.) Wow was I blown away. To any other person, this would have sounded like jibberish trash vomit, but because of my tainted musical tastes, I found rhythm in the rhythmless and literally jammed to this.

: But wait! There's more!!

He's a kid that goes by Pixelsaur. He caught my ear back in early 2009 with 8-Bit Buffalo, then Frog (which is kinda backwards, seeing as Frog was hugely popular and led a few people to him in the first place). He one me over with his happy-go-lucky, bouncy 8-bit pieces. More recently, he's taken a liking to house music; French house ain't my thing, but eh, a lot of other people like it.

In respect to a proposition made by a poster before to post other nominees before self-nominating, I decided to self-nominate.

Dickish? yes, but I feel better doing this now that I've nominated other deserving underdogs.

I've been making music for 5 years in FL Studio 5 thru 9, Fruity Loops edition. My style has ranged from generic FL techno to maybe-good DnB, to gabber then to IDM, to jungle/DnB then to breakcore. Over these years, I've amassed over 400 songs in the Audio Portal to date; making me one of the most prolific artist on here.

I'm what you call a 'dirty little secret', for a lot of big name people love my music, but wish not to speak of me in mixed company.

My current style is loosely-defined as "an amen break's brutal de-limbing and reconstruction caught on microphone, pitch-bent, raped, then beaten mercilessly". I have devoted many man-hours to perfecting this cacophonous symphony of drums in any way, shape or form. Sure, breakcore is an untapped niche of listeners on NG, but there are still that select few who adore my near-noise.
