Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I had to take a lot of really tough courses this year and it's been sapping my creativity, time and drive. The term's almost over and I'm looking forward to a long Summer and a job. I've mostly been tinkering with small projects since the last song I put out; trying out new synths and effects, getting new samples and playing around with my new keyboard controller and adjusting to the new workflow it provides.
But I think I'm starting to get back in to it. I have a basis for each track on my next EP and one track is done so far, and I've already made the album art/music video template. Hopefully I'll be able to get in the mood to finish everything quickly. New songs on the EP will be two DnB tracks, one Ambient/Chill track and one Progressive House track. Then I'll probably throw in Karmafield and superRescue because they don't have homes.
Here's a little preview of the music video. (no sound, just heavily compressed HTLM5)

P.S.: I'm worried about the Audio Portal. The "Popular Audio" section has been shrinking, with only a couple tracks in there each week it seems, when there should be like 8 or so. I kind of rely on getting songs in to that because that seems to be where people go to listen to music the most on this site, aside from the homepage I imagine. Whether Newgrounds changed their algorithms or visitor/contributor counts are dropping, I don't think it's a good thing.
Woah! I remember that it was just over a year or so ago that there were less than 10 of you, so this really means a lot.
So thank you for your continued support, and I hope I can keep making stuff that you enjoy. :3
School's started up again, so I'm going to try and finish my ongoing projects before things get too hectic. 2013's been a pretty lame year music wise for me with only 3 tracks published, but hopefully I'll be able to get really inspired again and stop over-thinking things. Maybe I'll finally buy some production hardware to make composing easier and more fun. d:
I meant to make a post about this when I uploaded it almost a week ago, and forgot. ._.
But yeah, I'd love it if you checked it out and let me know what you thought!
I've got a couple DnB tracks that aren't far from being done, so I'll be back to my usual crap soon. :3
Cheers, and thank you,
The most recent track I uploaded hasn't been faring as well as a few of my previous uploads, even though I feel this new one is much stronger.
I'd love to know what people think: what works, what doesn't, etc. I'm always trying to improve!
