He hasn't made anything new since 06, but if there's ever an update on that "missing in action, really cool artists list" then I guess he'd qualify for that.

If you really want to make sure he get's listened to, post some links to some of his better tracks. I listened to some stuff. He seems to be a pretty good rapper and I heared a fairly good dnb too. I was a little skeptical though at first because he eq'd the bass drum way too high in the first track I listened to.

Now, I'd get into more depth about this guy, because I liked what I heard... but this track scared me a little. I'm not sure how much of the original track he sampled, but that guitar work sounded too good, same with the vocals until the octave shifts started up. Can someone else verify how original this track is?

original track: "Everything Goes Dark" by The Hoosiers. I'd look into it myself, but I'd have to download it through lime wire on my school's internet connection. Risky, illegal and really slow.

Holy shit....

KaiSun rocks!!

He mainly does breakbeat stuff, but it sounds really nice. Not really at the professional level yet, but he has potential... major potential.

Trapdoor (Beast Mix) is some great nu skool breaks! And A Mule Ate My Past is some nice, phat, but minimalist sounding breakbeat!

djb345t owns all three of those nominees. He owns in track quality, amount submitted to the portal, and underdogness respectively.

I would like to nominate myself as an underdog. Ive been making songs for a little over a year now. And don't plan on stopping.... it's been over a month since ive submitted a song but i always have a few projects going. My early stuff isn't great... as with most people. But i like my recent songs.

I use madtracker, audacity, and a new program called musicshake.

I'm personally not sure that I would qualify for the top 10 list.
Though, I would love a bit more attention, I'm not sure I want it for the same reasons
as others would. With attention, comes criticism. As you listen to my newer songs and compare
them to my older songs, it's obvious there has been improvement. I'm just hoping to keepmyself in that cycle and NG is the basis for that to continue.
There are tons of experienced musicians and better composers on NG
who already have a fan base to think godly of them with every track they release.
What about the others who need help. I am one of them, and it sucks to have a song passed bywhen all of that effort is put into it.

- My Ideas
We are the basis for changing the music industry.
We post out ideas, thoughts, creations, sweat and blood on here for the entire planet to hear.
Distribution isn't a problem anymore. Recording costs are a thing of the past. CD's are overpriced and dying as the world slowly but surely turns digital. Sites like Newgrounds is how we're going to make it. The way money is made will have to change. (games, live performances, developing a strong fan base and other crap) It's all happening here.
- What Music is To Me
Music is my life. It has helped me through a lot, and will continue to do so until my last breath.
I may not be the best at expressing my musical Ideas yet (only 16)... but I'm making an effort to change that. I came to Newgrounds for a bit of help.
Music is the way I express myself. It's my way to keep in check with myself.
Music gets me through the day.
-My Style
I love all music. Jazz, Electronic, Classical, Choir, Rock, Metal, Ol' Skool Rap, blah blah blah
I'm still finding my place, and starting to use my own vocals.
I compose with a M-Audio Axiom 49, a computer with ableton live 6, and a guitar and bass.
I love writing all different kinds of things.
I've been composing for half a year, just got ableton a couple months ago.
I picked up my first instrument 2 years ago.

That's me... go ahead, delete this post :D
I'm sorry it's so long, tell me to edit it if you want.

I nominate myself since I'm not well known around the Audio Portal.
I have a few decent songs in my repertoire too.
So, someone pick a song, even if the score is a little low.

Oh, and my program is FL studio. I've been making music since well, August of last year.
I don't have much skill yet because I've onlt scratched the surface on the program that is Fl Studio.

Eh...
It's not that I wanted to nominate myself....
I guess I shouldn't really shouldn't have.
I'm no where near as good as others and still have to work on
my songs consistently being good.
I should have posted in a different thread.
I just wanted to get those thoughts out.

Nomination seconded. Some of your work sounded pretty good, though, some of it, not so much. Regardless, I'll put you up for http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/1 13714, Santa's Enlightenment and H.H.H.

Just letting you know, you got some of your genres wrong. That track you labeled as drum and bass was not drum and bass.

Well, I personally think you still have some more improvement to be done before I would nominate you. Who's not to say however that someone else might pick you up?

I'm not willing to nominate you. A bunch of your older tunes relied way too heavily on garage band loops. Who's to say that your newer stuff isn't original, but let's take into consideration that a majority of your tracks are old anyways. That means that a majority of your work is sampled loops. You cut them up a lot though. I almost didn't recognize them, but there were some pretty rough give-aways.

At 2/10/08 02:18 PM, Uthandar wrote: Eh...

Regardless, you'll get a nomination. I'm putting up your songs Traditional Chinese/ Modern (a dnb track after that minute long intro, why did you put it under classical?), Okay Roll The Drums and Sleeping By The Gummy Bear.

RAWR!

I nominate me.

History:
Got into flash when i was 6 and into audio making when 10.Im now 13.

I focus on audio alot more[I have flash movies to prove it :)] because i thinkit is the most fun of the two.

Ive posted nearly 40 tracks so far[MOST of them are good, some are screw ups,tests,etc.] and i think i have improved alot.

I recently posted a track and while i was making it, i could feel myself get better, and thats what inspired me to post this.
