X3LL3N's News

Posted by X3LL3N - March 31st, 2021


I know, Fumi and RUD already said it a couple of minutes ago, but since I have a bigger following than them on Newgrounds, I must also share it :)


I've met RUD in 2018, I was the guy who scouted him on his now deleted profile RUD1 (he wanted to change name lol).


I really liked his tracks, started coming to his streams and we naturally became friends (along with one of his other viewers, Fumijena).


So basically, for a couple of months now, both me and Fumi knew about the secret collab RUD had with Elektronomia.

We did hype it up a bit, but we never said what the secret project really was... until now !


As it turns out, the announcement finally came. Our fellow producer's collab with Elektronomia will come out on NCS on the 29th of April !


I knew we had some NCS producers on Newgrounds, like DJKadenza or Deaf Kev, but it's always a surprise to see someone from your community getting into a nearly 30 millions subscribers channel, specially when that person is one of your close friends.


I am so glad I was able to meet RUD (and Fumijena), it's always fun to chat with them :D


So yeah, that it ; let's wish all the best to him ! ^^

What's up people, long time no see !


I didn't have the time to do an update in a while since, as we all know, 2020 has been a pretty shitty year in many ways.

So here I will tell you about some news, future projects, and more.


Let's start with my goal for 2021 : Reach 300 followers on Newgrounds !

I originally hoped to get to that goal by the month of July (I reached both 100 and 200 followers during summer 2019 and 2020). Due to my inactivity, the lack of uploads and the fact that I'm not uploading some of my tracks as I feel they are not good enough, I hope to get close to it by the end of the year if I get lucky :)


I also have 2 other goals but they don't seem as "easy" : Get my first featured track in the audio portal and getting noticed by our lord and saviour : Tom Fulp

Well I did get noticed by Krinkels so I guess there's a chance lol.


I plan to make a couple of new shoutouts for music producers. I already have a list with a bunch of talented unknown people from the platform so you can expect one soon. They won't be monthly as I am pretty busy with college though.


Now, let's talk about upcoming projects !

I have a bunch of tracks and remixes done or currently on the works (but I'm not releasing them as I think I can improve them).

One of these is a collaboration with my friend RUD. We plan to make it in either Magic Music or NomiaTunes.

It seems his profile was deleted of Newgrounds recently for some reason, we'll check onto it.


This year will also be the year when I finally build myself a good computer. Up until now, I used a laptop for music, but since I'll buy some equipement with my economies from the past 2 years, you can expect some streams from myself ^^


Last but not least, I'm thinking of using my second alias, "DarenX" soon, but I'm not sure for what exactly. I'm hesitating between :


  • More high-quality stuff
  • Simple OST remixes
  • Gaming


I would like to thank you all for your support. I've started my music carreer here on Newgrounds for nearly 3 years, met a lot of amazing people and artists, including some who became good friends of mine.

I am someone who lacks self-confidence and isn't really good at communicating with people, but I believe I got better at it after I joined the community. So once again, thank you all very much ^^

Hey there, X3ll3n here.


If you talk to me on Discord, you probably know I had 20/30 WIPs including 10 nearly finished. Those were mostly Remixes, but also some Original tracks and a couple of VIPs. Those were all way better than anything you've heard from me before.


I had a problem with one of the plugins this week (VPS Avenger) which kept asking me to reload it.

I reinstalled it and for some reason, whenever I open one of my projects that included this plugin, FL Studio freezes and then crashes.


The plugin itself was cracked since I couldn't afford it. I will buy it when it's on sale with the 2 expansions I used (220/320 euros in total).


I hope this will be enough to fix the FLPs, but I fear it might not. We'll see.


Anyway, I decided to show you a couple of these "Summer Projects". I didn't want it to be too long so I decided to stick to these 14 tracks. You can check them out here : https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/962528

Hey there !


In the month of June, TMM43 came across one of my tracks and asked me if I would like to collaborate with him on something. (Obviously, I couldn't refuse that lol)


The thing is, none of us had inspiration for a new track, so we decided to remix his classic track "Ultimate Destruction".


But one question hasn't been answered yet : What style should we do ?


  • TMM43 hasn't made a lot of music in recent years and produces Trance music, meanwhile, I can only work on recent genres of EDM like House or Bounce music.


  • Should we focus on one style of music or mix both ? Also, should the remix be close to the original or should we experiment on it ?


I wanted yo ask your opinion on it.


Also, little change :

In the last few weeks, I've improved a lot, and it made me realise that my EP is actually not that good anymore.

Also, I took a decision. I decided to cancel it.


Some of the tracks that were part of it should still come out, but most of them will be really different from what they first were. I will collaborate with friends for some of them as well.


One last thing : I will do my "Monthly Shoutouts" in 2 weeks, so stay tuned :)


Anyway, that's all I had to say for now, thank you for reading and I hope you have a good day ! ^^

(expect a shitload of remixes once I'm back from vacations lol)

Hey there, long time no see !


Summer is that part of the year, when I'm stuck in Portugal, with nearly no Internet, dying due to the heat, suffering in silence...

But hopefully, it's also in that part of the year that the Newgrounds Underdogs Audio Contest happens !


If you've been following me for a while, you might know I didn't have much hope of getting in last year, and I was right : I got utterly destroyed ! (I didn't even pass the Tryouts).


But since last year, I've improved a lot ! I want to believe that I'll make it in this time, I must, this is my duty !


This will however not be an easy task since I'll definitely end up in the "All Star" category (due to the fact that I have over 200 followers on NG).


The fight will be hard, but if I do get in, I'll do my best ! Let's all hope I'm able to at least get in the Knock-Out round this time around !


And for those wondering, I sent this track for the Tryouts :


Wish me good luck ! ^^


PS : RUD, Aerin, Trickshot, if you somehow see this, you should join the fun ^^

Hey there !


Around 2 weeks ago, I decided I would start making monthly shoutouts to some of my friends and / or artists who have less than 100 subs here on Newgrounds. I'll select between 3 and 5 people each month and link a couple of their tracks.

For now, I will focus on music producers and singers only.


I have a list with 20 artists already, but if you know an unknown / underrated producer in the website, you can tell me about him so I'll check him out ^^


I'm not used to shoutouts, but I'll try my best.

Without further ado, let's see who the chosen ones are :


Artist n°1 : RUD


RUD is a 20 years old producer from Norway. He started uploading his musics on Newgrounds at the end of 2018.

You can hear that his main inspiration is K-391, who some of you probably know for his tracks "Summertime", "This is Felicitas" or more recently, "Ignite".

A couple of monthes ago, RUD started developping his style more and started making some amazing tracks ! Here are some of them :



He was able to get some of his musics in pretty big channels like UXN and Magic Music, but somehow, he only has 36 followers on Newgrounds.

If you like his tracks, you can check him out on Youtube and Twitch where he often streams, he also posts musics on Soundcloud and Spotify ^^


Artist n°2 : MVKUTA


MvKuta may only be 15, but he's a really talented producer. He started producing here on Newgrounds in 2018.

He's a Dubstep producer and mainly makes Riddim / Deathstep. I believe the main reason why he is pretty unknown here is because he doesn't upload very often. He does put a lot of time and effort in his musics and you can clearly hear it. Here, you can check some of the stuff he worked on :


  • Unpublished Submission
  • Unpublished Submission


I wanted to only show musics that are uploaded on Newgrounds, but he has a lot of IDs, so I decided to include a compilation of them ^^


https://soundcloud.com/mvkuta/mvkuta-id-showcase-mid-2020


He has a pretty decent following on both Youtube and Soundcloud, including artists like Virtual Riot ! If you like his musics, you can check him there or in Spotify !


Artist n°3 : KLYDIX


I don't know much about Klydix, he was originally not gonna be in this month's shoutout but I decided to put him in anyway.

Klydix's musics so far have been either future bass or future house, with a melodic and kawaii touch.

With his latest music called "Promise", it was clear that one of his main inspiration is Porter Robinson.

What Klydix excels at are his melodies and the ambience in his latest musics. He's developping many skills really fast.

Here are the musics I picked :



Unlike the 2 other producers in this list, Klydix is pretty new to the website and I believe he'll be a pretty big artist in Newgrounds someday.

If you like his musics, you can check him out on Youtube and Soundcloud


That's all for my first wave of shoutouts. I'm sorry if it somehow feels rushed, I wanted to keep it simple and promote some of the artists out there who I believe deserve more recognition on Newgrounds.


In next month's shoutout, you can expect some very talented artists !

I might add some people closer to 100 subs in the following shoutouts unless I find out some new people.

That's all for today, I hope you'll check these artists ^^

I didn't think this would ever happen, but it did !


I started making music and posting them on Newgrounds on July 2018. 1 year later, on the 31st of August 2019, I reached 100 Fans. And today, another year later, I've reached 200 Fans on the website !

(That's pretty big for someone who joined the audio portal in recent years)


I'd like to thank all of you once again for your support ! It's already been a while since I've joined this website, I've met lots of wonderful people and artists and I'm glad some of them enjoy the content I provide :)


I don't think it will happen since it gets harder and harder to get followers, but hey, my next goal is 300 followers for the Summer of 2021 ^^


Special thanks to the people who helped me until now, specially Froej, Trickshot, Astedroid and Aerin.

Little shoutout to MVKuta. He only has 25 followers as of today, but he's a great producer !


I'll release an EP soon, along with some old projects. I also might start doing other shoutouts in the future :D

Hey there !

I'm glad many contestants joined my contest and I'd like to thank everyone of you for participating ^^


I want to add some more details about how I'm gonna organize the whole thing :


  • I pushed the deadline from the 20th of May to the 27th since multiple people asked.


  • Starting the 27th, I'm gonna judge the entries and after that, we'll be making the results video.


  • GDTrickshot will make the results video where we will be showcasing the best entries (with the leaderboard on the left, similar to his own contest results video)


  • I'll make a tierlist which I'll post on my Newgrounds page because why not x)


Some more informations :


  • You have the right to make your remix after the contest ended and you are allowed to monetize it / send it to promotion channels (I see you RUD and Mestrix)


  • You are allowed to upload it on any platforms (Spotify, Youtube, Newgrounds, Soundcloud...)


  • I'll give a consolation prize for the people that didn't win (an accapella pack or a sample pack I guess)


But anyways, I hope you'll have fun, and once again, thank you all :D
