Have a question about FL Studio, or just music composition in general? Make a request for a tutorial here!
That's right, I'm starting a new thing called "Musician of the Week"! Just trying to give some exposure to the underdogs that have great music, but don't have as many fans as they should! Once I get the hang of this, I might interview the user as well
The first musician of the week is... @Cacola!
I've been meaning to do this for a while now. Cacola is one of the first musicians I met here on Newgrounds. He may not have the most astute EQing ability, but he crafts these beautiful melodies that take me on an emotional journey through every song he releases. And one of the most astonishing things about him? He's only 15!
Let's run down the list of what I consider his best pieces...
Hypersaws of Doom 2 was one of the first songs I think I heard from him. I don't remember exactly how we met, but for months I was his only fan. With pieces of solid amateur music gold like this, I was baffled at why he only had one fan.
About a month later, we decided to band together with another fellow amateur musician and form The Techno Trio. We wanted to make an entire album, but so far we've only released two tracks.
This song is a remix by Cacola of my song "Captive in Darkness". He did an excellent job, salvaging my horrible metal song. I still listen to this song all the time. The part at 1:55 never fails to take my breath away. Great job!
This song was my favorite song in the world for such a long time, and I definitely still think it's one of the greatest songs on NG. It's so damn emotional.
Not much to say, just a great song (after the intro, haha).
2015 was a great year for Cacola's music. Maybe even the best year. Only ten submissions, but each and every one of them a masterpiece. Cacola greately improved his mixing. This was also when we released our second The Techno Trio song. Cacola's contribution in this song is definitely my favorite part. The hardstyle basses are to die for.
This song probably has the best drop I've ever heard. Jesus, Cacola. Were you trying to make me ejaculate and have a heart attack at the same time?
While the intro is a bit cringy, you'd be daft to miss listening to this song. It's a journey through and through.
This one nearly made me shit my pants when I first listened to it. The sheer magnitude of the first hit left me in a trance for the rest of the song.
Here's one I helped him with, heh heh. It doesn't sound the best, but the originality alone is 100/10. You HAVE to listen to the part at 2:56. It's nuts.
This one has a low rating, but it's such a good song! Who ever downvoted it should probably get hit by a bus lel. Please upvote this one, he really deserves it.
Oh god, the melody in this song.... ffffFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFDAHGafsgajklfjaHTAHAFDHAfdasd
His first submission of 2016. Another splendid composition!
I was gonna make a big outro here, but I just spent 40 minutes typing a damned news post, so I'll refrain from it. Make sure to check out @Cacola's music and give him a 5 and a fan! See you all next week!
