Thanks for 10 Years on Newgrounds!

Posted by SynchroSpectre - May 20th, 2021


Wow, what a fucking journey. Last month marks my 11th year making music in general, but now this account is 10 years old!


If you guys didn't already know, I am an experimental electronic music producer that tries to make tracks that no one has ever heard before. Lately, I've been trying to make my sound design original and try to make my own basses. However, when it comes to organic instruments or natural-sounding drums I do rely on samples; royalty-free of course (;


I've gotten a DistroKid and started pushing my music to streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music instead of being a kid uploading to just Newgrounds and SoundCloud lol.

I've released so many new tracks in the last few months. My latest release 'High Roller' is a collaborative effort made with a good friend of mine that goes by the name 'WhiteFire'. It's a sick 6-minute drum & bass track with multiple parts to enjoy, so go check it out!

I've started to release singles now instead of planning 4-6 track EPs because goddamn, just making one track takes like 3-4 months. Each single was like a journey to create and I feel like each one deserves their own album art ha.

And yes, I do have a back catalog I've been trying to push out and complete. I've got three collaboration tracks and three other original ones to finish. I've got some artworks here to show what's coming c;

The visual aspect of my work has been fun too, I've been incorporating the Photoshop layers from the album arts into After Effects and try to make a unique-ish cover background compared to the actual cover art. With High Roller, there is a horizontal version of the Spotify canvas. Coincidentally, the clips change in sync with the song so that was interesting.

Spotify has this cool thing where you can make 'canvases' where it's these like GIF loops that play on the Spotify player. I've made one for Vanillamoon and High Roller and I plan on making more for the older tracks as well.

So yeah, there's that once-in-a-blue-moon news post from me. Be sure to check out my stuff on the streaming platforms and on Audius it really helps! 'Buying' (donating lol) my tracks on Bandcamp also helps tremendously. The support I have received (or lack thereof) has kept me going and try to push into the music industry as a legit artist. Anyways, thank you guys so much for checking out my stuff since I was called rover lmfao.
