It's VaeVIKTUZ I nominate.

He's the very definition of underdog. His tracks are always so good, He uses life instruments. It doesn't sound overproduced, but not too noisy. Just a very human and honest sound.

He's been here on Newgrounds for one and a halve year, posted plenty of songs, and up till today he's still very active. I heard he's been on the front page once and rightly so, yet he's only got 8 fans, and gets way too little reviews. I guess he just doesn't ask for attention enough, but he certainly deserves some credit based on his music.

Please put him on the list.

I'm on a new account since I started using more professional techniques, and sadly I'm only working on my song, but I thought I would say I would be back here, and maybe get someone to check me out since I'm getting 0 bomber (because honestly my music isnt that bad... Unless someone thinks otherwise at least)

You are nowhere near being awesome, but still shamelessly self-advertised. That's why Lasse and I do not like your attitude.

Also...

You should write the abbreviated form of "do not" with an apostrophe.

I'd suggest you to worry about making better music
And if you think you're already good at it and you're getting 0-bombed for no reason, there are obviously some people who think otherwise.

Well umm.. your will probably hate me for this but worth a try :p
so I'm gonna nominate myself :D Not that I'm saying I'm awesome or anything but I'm sure many of you will enjoy the music! I have only began being active on NG recently. Well... only yesterday really xD
anyway, I produce trance music, have been playing piano (with no lessons) for a decade and I'm 17 years old.
I'm quite popular on youtube for having been a producer for less than 2 years.
http://www.youtube.com/user/SoulofT In case anyone is wondering!! :D
Anyway, hope I can get more attention on NG, I will certainly also be more active! =)

Souloft out :)

Lets see.. I have 6 songs so far, and I'm still uploading.
I have no reviews though :-/. I'm not sure if I've been scouted at this point IDK. I'm new here.
I'm definitely active. I'm just beginning to start exploring all of the site.
It says I can self nominate? I feel kinda cheesy doing that, but hey it's worth a shot right?

About me? Hmmm... I make original Electronic music. Much of it does not fit into any genre - not because I make it spaz out like so many experimental artists do, but because I hate cliche. I will never do dubstep, trance, or any other over-used style. Most of the songs are very different from eachother. I wrote a few hundred tracks over the past 10 years or so. Many of which I will be posting here in the next couple weeks. I control MIDI with my Nord Lead II. I use Cubase, Ableton, Renoise, and FL Studio to record synth loops. I compile my songs manually by editing the waveforms in Adobe Audition. I don't use multitrack. I stopped using third party loops around 2003. I use different one-shots for my drum work, most are my own, some are downloaded from packs. I love what I do. I hope I posted this on the right thread.
Thanks to everyone who checks it out - Jake

Hey sorry for striking a bone, but I wanted to get honest feedback, if I actually have bad music, then I want to know how to be better, and I havnt heard anything negative about my music, in fact I've been hearing just the opposite. The reason I posted here was to get some exposure and to see what people think about my music, so sorry if I struck a bone or something, I just want to get better

This guy has some damn good house songs, at least I think so. He doesn't seem to get that much attention, though that could because he doesn't do much in the community, but I feel he deserves some recognition.

It's better than me trying to nominate myself, though my stuff isn't really good enough for me to be considered an underdog.

No one is against you or your little crap. We just try to remind you to post self-advertising at the right thread (see DJDela response). As stated by OP, this thread is for other nomination mostly, unless the self-nominator is a good artist, which you are nowhere near being decent (2 songs only? Give me a break...).

No negative? How about that little thread you were whining about 0-bombing? No one bombed you for no reason. Why the hell does every noob on NG have the exact same shitty reactions?

You know, I didn't respond to you earlier, because everyone complains about zero bombing all the time. But when you started the topic, I actually checked out your profile, and I saw that at the time you only had 2 songs up, with a total of 5 votes. If your songs dropped from 4s to 2s, that means only 2 or 3 of those 5 votes were actual 0s. I won't call that bombing. If I look at your profile now you have about 25 votes in total and your scores are even lower. Maybe by complaining so much over nothing gave yourself negative exposure. I also saw you wrote some very negative reviews where you gave halve a star to songs that in my opinion weren't too bad (at least better than your own). It's not surprising if you made some enemies with your reviews. The most likely explanation however is your songs just aren't as good as you think, just no one cares enough to tell you. I didn't vote for your songs because I feel sorry for you and I don't want to freeze the score at the 2 it's at, because that's I'd vote. If you want constructive criticism, I'll tell you this; Keep in mind what key your song is in and don't use notes that donâEUTMt fit that key. Use good sounding and preferably original chord progressions. These things are important for understanding your own songs. If you don't know why your song should be good, it probably isn't. Don't just learn tips and tricks from google or youtube. Pick up a book about fundamentals of music. Or take lessons. Be original. Nothing against dubstep, but you're not the first to make it, and a lot of people who do are beginners that arenâEUTMt very good. Make yourself stand out from the mass. If you write "best" among your tags, be sure not to disappoint. Good luck and keep improving.

I'll nominate myself. I've been making music for a little under 2 years, but recently joined NG. I'll let you guys decide what my music is all about, because I could say that my music is the best out there, but I know it's not.

He got a TON of songs and uploaded them since 2008. Check him out!
It looks like he had something big going in 2010 and before but after that, people kind of forgot about him.

I wanna nominate myself...is that dick-ish?

Anyway: History....Um, I've been making music since 2008. I didn't start taking it seriously until about 2011, when I released my first album. But to this day it has almost no downloads. Since then I've released an EP, and am working on my second full length album..

I use Reaper as a DAW. And I use a mixture of Gearbox, FL and a couple various VST's.

No matter how great my infamy may be, I will always be an underdog.

So yes, I nominate myself. I'm not going to even post a link to my stuff. I respect the rules of this thread, and I'm way too much of an underdog anyway.

I normally record myself with a handheld video camera, upload the songs to youtube, then use a website that converts youtube videos to .mp3 files so I can post them here.

I am a true underdog.

What u need to do is try to buy a nice microfoon. if your recording quality is better then we are able to make a nice song if u want. I think that the sound quality and some extra stuff like some drums etc really makes the difference in your song. because the vocals are pretty good only they are bad recorded just like the gitar. i think that if u do that that more people are gonna like it and that u are not gonna stand long on that underdog list ;)

Self nomination ( shameless :-p )

http://armoniascuro.newgrounds.com/audio/

I have played music my entire life with a variety of instruments- but my primary for most of my active musical life has been bass. I am nominating myself for my chiptune work however... in which I am just starting out. Music programming has always been something I have been interested in but never really pursued until now.
My journey into newgrounds started out as a joke, I wrote the song in my profile called "vampire party" basically saying something around the lines of if i write some poppy trash on guitar pro everyone will love it. I actually found the community to be pretty critical and helpful though... and that evolved into writing "The Time machine" which i was a bit more proud of but I felt like the instrumental limitations of guitar pro were holding me back-- so I downloaded Famitracker and began learning the program.
Since then I have gotten my passion back for composition and have been trying to get my work heard. All of the songs recorded have been written in no more than two dedicated sit-downs - normally in a 24 hour period. My goal as a musician composing these pieces is to get them used in Games. As long as I can remember I have always wanted to compose music for games. I hope you guys dig my music, my heart is in it!

note: i used to dump my trash here from an old band, (goofy improvs we didnt use) so please dont mind the 2010 submissions :-p

Sry, blasted through the rules...

I use Logic Express to make these songs with a "duet" form apogee to record voices and guitar/bass.
I write in many a genre but will mainly post instrumental music here, intended for movies, videogames or some such.
I have had a 2 year hiatus from writing this kind of music and started up again one week ago.

How the hell can you be an underdog, if you're here less than a month.
So you just came to newgrounds and suddenly you're expecting to have thousands of fans.

I totally agree with the guy above, this became another audio ad thread long time ago.
