Hello, everyone! This isn't entirely audio-related, but I'm hoping this is the right forum.
I'm Gene Goldstein, the creator of Hyperboy: http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/hyp erboy
I'd like to ask anyone who is interested if they would like to participate in a little musical project I'm starting.
Two of my friends and I, all of us avid gamers, are starting a rap group by the name of Gumboozle. Now, we hope to have a lighthearted approach to everything, and considering that we are all artists, make our personas very cartoony and exciting. I'll break it down for you guys:
I am Gene, and I go by Gene Machine. I'll wear a slim black suit and tie on stage. I'm the designated hype man, which means I dance around and sing choruses and such.
My friend Gabe is the lead rapper. He goes by Galvosaur and wears a luchador mask onstage.
My friend Greg is just Greg. That's the joke. He has no gimmick. He's the other lead rapper.
Here's a picture I drew depicting us:

I'll cut to the chase, and explain our dilemma. Up until now, this has all been a lot of talk and we're kind of becoming a joke amongst our group of friends. Here's why:
We need beats.
We can't record any music until we have beats. Unfortunately, it's hard to find talented musicians who would want to collaborate. So, I wanted to go on here and ask if there was any musicians that would be willing to work with us? There's no money in it, and it's strictly for the fun of it. We're not making any money off this.
I loved Joakim Sandberg's soundtrack for Noitu Love 2, and I contacted him to see if he was interested in this project. But, he is very busy and I understand his lack of interest. However, I was wondering if there are any 8-bit musicians on here that would be able to do that kind of thing? His songs are almost the exact kind of music we're looking for: Intense, upbeat, melodic, catchy, etc. You can download the soundtrack here:
So, if you are someone who does that kind of thing, let me know. If you know of someone that might be able to help us, let me know of that as well. Thank you for your help everyone! :)
