Saboten Con 2014

I’ll be making my first appearance at local anime festival Saboten Con this year. I’ve had the pleasure of appearing at Kikori Con (Flagstaff, AZ) and Con-Nichiwa (Tucson, AZ) within the last year–not to mention MAGFest 2014 and the Reno GAME Expo 2014–so I’m looking forward to playing at a con in my hometown of Glendale!

 

For those of you just joining us from Saboten, here’s a set on my Soundcloud with a few of my past gigs!

Contest deadline EXTENDED

Hey everyone, quick announcement: I’m extending the deadline of my Frostbite contest for about another month or so. Why, you ask? Simply put, I don’t have the ability to give away the cash prize that I said I would right away–the Soundcloud prize, of course, is available whenever I call on it, but I want to make sure that I’m financially able to give the winner (whoever it ends up being) the Image-Line Virtual Cash prize as soon as I can.  Also, I haven’t yet heard any remixes that truly blow me out of the water. I’ve heard some very solid ones, to be sure, but I’d love to let this thing sit a while longer and see what else people can come up with.

 

Can’t wait to see this thing through!

 

 

EDIT: Extending ONE LAST TIME because of circumstances, and now the FINAL DEADLINE is on July 14, 2012. Last extension. Hopefully. Probably.

You’ve Got A Secret Bonus Point

Recently, I had an opportunity to contribute to a Dynamite Headdy remix album project. While I’d never played the game, I did have a fantastically fun time remixing the main theme of a prominent boss, Maruyama, and this is what came out:
Dynamite Headdy – Hustle Maruyama – “Trouble Brewin'” by Flexstyle
The entire album may be downloaded over at http://dhsbp.kngi.org/ for, of course, the low-and-entirely-reasonable price of FREE!

I’ll have more music soon, but you can usually stay updated at my Facebook page (link in sidebar) or on my Soundcloud.

Until next time!

ACIDplanet.com 8-Pack Tournament 2010: Round 2

Welcome, Acidplaneteers (and everyone else), to my entry for round two of our lil’ tourney. With Halloween being fresh in my mind, still, I’ve named this tense, brooding, ever-so-slightly-dissonant, somewhat nervous track “Too-Much-Candy Ghoul.” I’m proud to say that, maybe for the first time ever, I have actually used every single available loop to some degree or another. My opponent for this week is the worthy Inny Binny, whom I have faced several times in the past. I’m fairly certain we’re tied as far as all-time victories against each other in 8pack battles go, so this isn’t just a fight to get to the next round! 😛

Airdrift – Phoenix (Flexstyle Trancestep Remix)

Quick post to show everyone this remix I did of an awesome artist and friend of mine, Airdrift. He just recently got signed to Dangerbox Recordings, one of my very favorite record labels, and his Frozen EP is undergoing a promo phase right now in anticipation of its August 16th release on Beatport.  Here’s my remix of his song “Phoenix.” Special thanks to my friend James for the guitar work!
