Buncha new tunes comin soon

Hey folk, one and all,

 

Haven't posted lately cause I've got all sorts of tasty shit brewing. 

Recently helped out with some songs for a Student Game my friend made, so there should be a few more short video game tunes on here. In the meantime don't forget to check out my little demo reel:

And also if you are looking to wet your earholes with a little bit of electronic retro-inspired groovy disco then keep an eye out for my EP, "I Am Alive" that I am getting close to finishing up. 

This is a VERY early version of the title track. Expect more groovaliciousness and better everything. http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/710676

 

Stay groovy for now

Hey one and all, here is a new sample of my work in the realm of game composing. Mostly retro platformer styled stuff.

Check it out if that's your thing or if you are in the market for some video game tunes!

"A lone wandering knight is you. A run down Kingdom you walk through, poor peasants you spot with your eyeballs, toiling away for no reward. A splendid castle you do spy with your same eyeballs, up at the top of town. Wondrous feasts and celebrations you do catch wind of, celebrating the despicable selfishness of the gluttonous and narcissistic King Kale, up in his perch.

A solemn vow you do make in thine heart to enter the golden doors of this castle and free the good folk of this land from this unthinkable, yet cliche treachery."

 

Or at least that's what my pappy told me about when he grew up in the medieval times



Hey fellas, 

I just put up a little video to go along with my Video Game style track "Welcome to Your Grooviest Nightmare". Put together some gameplay that I thought would fit well with the song, check it out:

Thoughts on Hobbits

This is my favourite song, because it is a hobbit song.
I like to play it on every instrument in the world. This was actually performed in Hobbiton in the Shire believe it or not. But I swear on my honour that its the truth. I was there on vacation last spring to visit some family and see some sights as I havent been there in a good while.
The reason I frigged a few notes is because I was in bag end and bilbu-san kept on strumming away on his lute in the background and I got distracted.
Like, its all cool now but at the time I was like really bro? Can you not see that Im trying to record a sweet little insta vid right now? Like gimme a break.
But anywho its all good, we shared some fresh baked bobbit bread and a tea. Shortly after actually good old gandalf the great stopped in and he had a quick mug as well, real nice dude. Real nice to catch up with him. Havent seen him in 80-odd years.
But anyhow it actually took me 9 months or so to post this because we were passing through rivendell and rohan and stuff and they dont got good wifi. And then my phone service went away after we got out of range.
Thats not even the craziest part in my opinion even though it is really insane. But the one time we really wanted some mcdonalds (haha not sponsored just a part of the story lmao) but anyways turns out they are not as common out that way. 
So were looking and looking for a while, like I mean we made a weekend out of it. But eventually we were lost and we had to settle for some juicy dirt grubs from the forest. 
It was a really good time though, and its something Ill treasure for my whole life.
But anyways yes its true that me and bilbu-san did get up to some pretty crazy shenanigans which I wont go into, just know it involved a soda poppie can, two rolls of aluminium foil, 300 pounds of animal fat, butter, duct tape, large parachute, mpuntain climb gear icepick boots trombone mug and a bike horn.
So anyways that took a really long time to get to the point but what Im trying to say with all this is weve got a mixtape coming out peep it its called "fire in the shire yall" and will be on 8track
