A new music! This time it's Dubstep. Still, I didn't make that kind of EDM that sounds all the same. This tune's got some interesting sounds, including an Erhu, a Hawaiian guitar and a voice used as an instrument.
I didn't post this right away because I couldn't get on RRU for some reason. But finally I got the problem fixed (thanks Xiron and Ayliffe!).
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.
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!
I wanted to make something that could fit in Freedom Planet, so here it is! I tried as hard as I could to replicate Woofle and Strife's styles, but I don't know if I tried hard enough still.
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 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)
Halloween is coming! In honor of my favourite holiday, I made two themed tunes: this one (which I actually, I made in June... ), and another, coming next week, the 24th.

So, yeah, the two upcoming musics are going to have this kind of names.
I love this one, I hope you'll like it as well!

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.

Here's a fancy loop for you! It's got orchestral and electronic elements, but it contains a couple unusual instruments and an interesting rhythm. Hope you'll like it!

Here's a new music for you! It's a summer-y Reggae tune, I hope you'll enjoy it.
All the vocals were performed and recorded by me.
BAH SCREW IT I CAN'T GET THE VIDEO TO EMBED

Here's another track! It's a dark, bassy and slow breakbeat track, with a brutal drop, fancy sounds, and a lot of other wonderful stuff!

Welp, here's another music for ya! A Drumstep track, with chiptune sounds, guitars (a couple of which were recorded by me), and a brutal drop like in my classic Dubstep/Drumstep stuff.
So, hope you'll enjoy! I've had a lot of fun when making this track.

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!
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.
I decided to upload this earlier than usual because it's Xiron's birthday, you know.
Well, this is my new track, Showdown! It is one of my classic Chiptuney Drumstep/Dubstep style music, except this one is completely chiptune (although the drums and bass are digital, because Drumstep).
This music was inspired by final boss battles in retro videogames. The track starts with a catchy 8bit tune, but it keeps rising and adding tension as time passes, just like an usual boss battle does, and it transforms in the music of a decisive battle, with the tension building up more and more until the very end of the music.

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.

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.
Here is a nice remix of a Ratchet & Clank music that I though could have been better. Now it has a style more similar to the second game, which had the best music of all the R&C series.
Oh, and by the way, this moosic loops at 1:53. If you want, I can make an extended version of the video.
