It’s a big day for me, my original song “Run to Japan” that I recorded at Moving Box Studios just got licensed to Armor Games.
Last year, I wrote a fun little asian-inspired song called “Run to Japan”. I recorded it at Moving Box Studios, I hadn’t written music in a while and needed a break from the other studio works I should have probably been doing. I posted it to Newgrounds, the online flash community, and let it be. It was a fun and kind of dorky little beat, I figured someone would probably dig it. I couldn’t help but imagine animation going along with it, the song structure is progressive and it felt like taking a train into a jungle and then running into a japanese city.
It was around march I was contacted by Newgrounds user Jimp who was working on a game called Sushi Cat, he wanted to use the song in his flash game. Fuckin sweet, go for it. I was recently contacted by a rep from Armor Games who was working on porting the game for the iPhone. We worked out a deal and I granted a license. I framed my contract, cause I’m a huge dork. >B]
I love shooters, and Gradius was one of my favorites. bLiNd comes through like always with a rock-solid trance remix from Gradius 3.

“I’m Just a guy that Likes to make Music While thinking outside the ‘normal area’.
I luv to use sounds that others may find are weird. I believe music is very diverse, that’s why you will always find different stuff with my music.”
Hell yeah, get at Mac_real on
OCRemix tweeted this interview with I Fight Dragons, explaining how they’ve got their 10,000 fans in the past year. They explain the concept of “True Fans,” the most awesome people an artist could hope for.
“…a True Fan is not a possession. It’s a relationship. As such, it grows and changes, and people come and go as you grow, and as they grow and their lives change.”
Very cool insight from the nerdtacular group, definitly worth a read.
