Hey, here's a new track for you! It's a Chiptune/Orchestral/Metal loop (ends at 1:47), and it's inspired by UNDERTALE. Undertale is truly an inspiring game, and its soundtrack is even more from a composer's point of view.
A couple days ago StewartG asked me to make the main theme for Rock Raiders 2, so I decided to upload it so that everyone can hear it, as a preview. Feedback and suggestions for improvement are very much appreciated.
So yeah, I might be making the music for this game. It depends on what Stewart decides.
Hai. I did a remix of my own music. And that's awesome. And I made it just because summer's approaching. Wah.
Listen on SoundCloud. If you manage to. Because that page seems to derp out a lot. I might have to reupload it.
A catchy chiptune for that game I wanted to make (it's not happening, by the way). More are coming soon.
What do you think of this video format for chiptunes? Please give your honest opinion.

As promised, here's a single post containing some of my videos, from this summer onwards!
This is a TouHou style track I started two years ago right after finishing Champion Battle, but I remade it from scratch with my new composition style. Unlike other tracks inspired by the same source, this one is a full-fledged composition!
This one is a rather unusual track for my standards, being more focused on experimental atmosphere and ambience than anything. Melodies are very scattered and are by far the least important element here.
This is a pretty basic House track, it's nothing too extreme but it's definitely a refreshing take on such a stale genre!
And last, but not least, this is a track I made as an example to show to a game developer who contacted me. I didn't even get to send it to him, so I decided to upload it. It's a JRPG-syle background music with very Japanese-y elements and floaty harmonies.
And that's all! Enjoy!
I started this way back when I finished Champion Battle, but I finished it just two days ago. It also went through a bunch of transformations, as this was initially supposed to sound Earthbound-y (you can still hear one of the weird pads often used in the game in the third part of this music though).
Anywho, it's done! Enjoy!
Finally, a new music! I have some more ready, so my schedule shouldn't be too random in these next few weeks.
This is an ambient track, inspired by Earthbound, as well as Borderlands (not too much though). It's got 16-bit limitations too!
The video should also be in a slightly higher quality, I did some stuff to make it look less blurry. I'm not sure if it worked out well or not.
Halloween is approaching, so here's an obligatory Halloween music for ya! This year I had a lot of other projects to do, so I didn't have much time for this. Still, today I got back on this music (I started it a month and a half ago ), and polished it a bit.
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
Oh, and for this special occasion, here's a link to a free download for this music on SoundCloud!
Heya, le717 asked me to do this so here it is! This is probably the first and only professionally made cover of this music. I thought you would have enjoyed it, so I decided to upload and post this on RRU!

I thought that the topic I made for my music isn't good enough for what I intended to do, so I'm gonna use the blog for every new music.
Well, you can guess what this music is inspired by, and is supposed to sound like.
Enjoy folks! I also put a commentary on the video, it was fun to write.

I decided to put up my album soon enough*, but I am lacking of two important things for it to be uploaded: a graphic for the album, and a decent logo for my channel. I mean, just look at that c24 thing. It's horrifying. So, I am asking you to give me a hand with that, as my digital drawing skills are indescribably bad.
If you are going to help me with this, you have to know a couple things:
The album is most likely going to be called "The Grand Finale", as this whole album is an homage to LR2. I was thinking that the graphics should be technologic and abstract, but even a futuristic panorama could go, I guess.
I am going to (finally!) change my artist name to Shadowblaze. I have always been known by that name, and I don't know why I shouldn't be called with that name even as an artist. For the logo, I don't believe that writing the name is a good idea, but an abstract and geometric drawing could work. Also, it should be in two formats: a detailed one (optional), and one in greyscale with white background. Take a look at the EDM District logos to better understand how that should be made.
Everyone's efforts will be considered and appreciated, I just expect a bit of experience and professionality at drawing. If more than one people accept to do this, I will choose the pics that I think will be more fitting, or that I like better.
And again, I apologize for the title.
*: It's going to be for free. The stupid laws in this country make selling music on the internet next to impossible.
A spooky name for a spooky tune!
I tried to make the "x reacts to audio" thing for the video, what do you think?
Have a Happy Halloween everybody!
(I changed it in 27/10/15 from Ballad of the Pumpkin, by the way)
Hello, here's one of my newest tracks! It's a blend between ambiance, DnB and drumstep. I hope you like it!
I know the video quality is bad, but audio is what matters.

I apologize for the sassy title and blog post in general.
I decided after much deliberation that it's time I do a soft-reboot of my channel. After 5 years of complete staleness, it's time I actively start promoting my brand by sending some cheap EDM music to people like Dubstep Gutter and Berzox, as that's what cool people do these days.
But mind you, it's going to be just a phase. I will be doing what I have to until I can start making again the stuff I want, I hope you understand what I mean. Besides, it's not like I despise EDM. If it's not repetitive and unoriginal garbage like most of the releases on UKF I'll most likely see some good in it, and try to incorporate it in my style. My plan is to start making both EDM and VGM in the future, as I enjoy them all the same, even if for different reasons.
So, what I mean by soft-rebooting is: I should change my name again, to something more thought out and unique, that will sound acceptable for both for EDM and the more VGM and cinematic side of music. What I found was this name: Nuwe.
The Nue is a mythological Japanese creature which "has the face of a monkey, the legs of a tiger , the body of a Japanese Raccoon Dog and the front half of a snake for a tail" (Wikipedia), basically a chimera. It's also known for being very mysterious and enigmatic, which led to a shift in meaning of its name to "man of mystery". Now, to me this name sounds glorious. Super simple to write and remember, I like how it's pronounced, and it's got that meaning which perfectly fits what I do (many styles under a single identity, sort of like a chimera?). The only problem is that "nue" in French means naked (feminine), which is stupid.
So I used my Nihongo no kakikata no takumi to rewrite it in a less equivocal way, and got Nuwe, which is even better, because for reasons I cannot explain here it looks stylish to Japanese people. Additionally, in Afrikaans apparently it means "newer" which is a plus.
So that's the name I wanted to go with. The alternative is to use a pseudonym where the first name is a shortening of my actual first name and Nuwe as a fake surname.
I was also thinking that maybe the logo could use some tweaking. Thoughts about all of this? Any critique to make? Please don't hold yourself back. You're my focus group and I want to hear everything I can from you.
Ooh, a dark ambiance drumstep music! It's kinda weird and experimental, but I hope you'll like it.
You can listen to the music on Soundcloud too: https://soundcloud.com/c24dubstep/c24-panther
Also, the volume is a bit louder than in my other videos.
Heyyy, it's been a while since I've done anything! Better get back on track with a fully produced track with real recorders!
As I mentioned in the description of the video, this has been laying around for a pretty dang long time. While I still think this track is way too silly for me to take 100% seriously, it still is pretty important to me, so I felt I needed to publish it and move on with it. Hope you'll enjoy!
Another loop! Why do I do this stuff? Because I love video game music and I want to learn making them well. This one is inspired by Ratchet & Clank, as usual, and it has a mysterious feel to it. This music is called City Depths because I had a picture in mind of a disastered suburban (literally) area, I think the slowness, tension and undergroundness (literally, again) of the tune helps with the devastated and dangerous scenary I was thinking of. The music loops at 2:52. Kinda long for a loop, but the longer the better I guess.

Surprise! It's an Irish folk song. Except it's got guns! This is probably my new favorite track of mine, even with all the repetitions (which by the way are very intentional). This track is like 80% stuff I've never used or tried before, so it's got a very fresh sound. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
The butterfly has flown out of its cocoon. Or something.
This is my magnum opus. I've never made something so complicated, and I'm really proud of it (despite the short duration). Feel free to count how many time changes there are, and what tempo this music's in.
