RealFaction's News

Posted by RealFaction - 2 days ago


UPDATE:  The album will not be dropping this week but maybe a week or two, will keep you updated.  For now, this week the second single, "Skill" feat. Row Skino will be up, hopefully.  If not, then next week.

Surprise! The new Kid Projekt album, "Under Construction", is dropping this week, and a new episode of Talking Real is up now!  There is info (with time markers of when I talk about the topics so you can skip other topics) about Pixel Day 2019 (January 23rd), needing someone to lead this year's Art-Inspired Music Contest (AIM) and NGADM, me potentially moving out of my city, secret projects, big things... plans for 2019, so don't miss out!

Listen here: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/843069
Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzNskrWT52o&feature=youtu.be

Been finishing up vocals on the new Kid Projekt album if you like experimental meaningful deep hip-hop that has positive messages and not the crap that plays on the radio.  Should be done sometime this week, it features my friends @CyberDevil and Row Skino in a couple songs!  I also made all the beats (with a couple songs sampled in a couple of them I can't upload to NG)!  Stay tuned this week!

Surprise! Here's the album cover for Piercing Lazer's new album I've been working on for 4 years, almost 5, titled "Eyes of Purgatory, Pt. 1", also working on part 2. I uploaded a demo of a song I originally intended to have on it back from 2015, may finish it someday, but cut it for now.  The album will be coming sometime this year.

The album is the first of a 2-part series that is a concept album paying tribute to my good friend and musical inspiration, @Back-From-Purgatory.  It tells a story through various styles of Metal.  It'll give you somewhat an idea of the different directions I'll be going with the new record, but still, every song is different.

The album cover that is a picture my good friend @JennyActs took in a coal mine that I edited, so enjoy! https://youtu.be/hx6UTJcZoSU

Surprise, I made a remix after hardly making remixes. 

Here's my surprise remix of The Prodigy's "TimeBomb Zone"! They've inspired me since 2006 when I first started making music at 14, going back to my roots! Below is an explanation of why I'm allowed to upload this to NG.  Go listen to it.

Listen to the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5tHiZACxbI

YouTube: https://youtu.be/ysQltzJLEsE
SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/realfaction/the-prodigy-timebomb-zone-real-faction-remix


 



I cleared this song with an NG staff member so this doesn't get taken down, the remix contest gives permission in the terms and conditions (enter your email to get info on that on the site): http://theprodigy.com/?fbclid=IwAR2vb33oAQpbdv0JrkMzpxZ4DYCAGpE-9F8a6RRILBvQWv-lt92KpA8OADA

Enjoy!  There's my last song of the year, figured I'd let 2018 go out with a bang!

I finally did it.  1,800 fans!  Thanks guys!  Last I checked it was in the middle of 1,750 but, woah it spiked! 

1743246_154582308352_aewtaetaet.png



As for the future, stay tuned, nothing to post more so than my last update post.  Just uploaded the latest episode of Venturescape, and a song I made for it, so go check those out in my submissions.  That's my last submission for the year.  I have at least 5 secret things to release in the next 2 or so months, but a little early to talk about those.

All I'll say is, 1 collab project almost done, a secret album announcement, working on 2 video games (technically 3 but you'll see), and a secret song...or secret set of songs maybe?  Alright, it's more than 5 secrets, but you'll understand when I can talk about them in the next two months or so. 

In short, I have some big things in the works for 2019, all will be released next year.  For now, look forward to Pixel Day January 23rd, work on your pixel entries!  And, I'm working to finish the new Kid Projekt album for January 16th.  The next batch of uploads will be song demos from the new Piercing Lazer album coming this Summer, then the KP songs.  After that, you're getting a surprise album.  Stay tuned!

I need more commissions, because I'm broke, so if you want to commission me, or know someone who does, check this post out: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1026401

Don't forget to enter your submissions by January 23rd for our 4th annual Pixel Day!

https://www.newgrounds.com/collection/pixelday2019

Also, if you like experimental Hip-Hop, check out my new Kid Projekt single "Under Construction", the title track of the new album coming January 16th.  It's a positive message.  It's on Newgrounds, but if you want to support me, you can buy it on my store too.

Newgrounds
BandCamp Store



Also, I have a couple questions. 



Newgrounds Zero Hour Needs a Game Programmer

1. Would any programmers like to help me finish the rest of Newgrounds: Zero Hour?  It was a game to celebrate the birth of Pixel Day, and the demo has over 80,000 views now, with an amazing rating, holy moly!  I've been wanting to finish it for years, we have about half the assets needed, I just need a good programmer who can do what the demo pulls off.  Message me?

Check it out: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/664782



I'm Making a...Card Game?

2. I'm also developing a party card game, how would I go about the process to finalize it enough, then how would I present it to a card company in an email in a way where they can't steal my idea, but they are interested enough to email me back?  I've done test runs, and many people have said it's lots of fun, though I gotta tweak it a litttle.  Ideas?


I'm Making a...Video Game Too?

I just bought RPGMaker MV, and going to learn it, in attempt to make a video game demo for a kickstarter, so this is all stuff I've secretly been up to.

That's all for now, I'm really just an idea guy who's trying to come up with ideas I love until something sticks.  After the Kid Projekt album, there's a few surprises in store music-wise, then more work on the long-awaited Piercing Lazer album.

Commissions are open again for Music and Voice Acting if you want to hire me to make you a song or provide a voice! I'm raising the prices a little, I need the money until I get a second job. We can do a payment plan of a third or half the payment upfront, then weekly or bi-weekly payments. 

I'm also going to be very cheap for voice acting since I'm not on the map much, but I have years of experience.  I posted the music demo reel down below (and here on newgrounds).

More info in the videos below. Link me youtube videos of what you want it to sound like, instruments you want, what the song is for, etc.  Email me at rfmusic180@gmail.com when you get all the info, or if you have questions ask me.

PS: Don't forget about Pixel Day in January!  Make your submissions!  Tom Fulp and I are judging as always!  Click here for more info!

This is just until I get a second job, it's been hard man.  I just got over a week of being sick, working on the new Kid Projekt album, and more on the Piercing Lazer album.  I just finished a commission that hopefully you guys will see in the soon future on the Fawful's Minion youtube channel, and mine. 

Not much else to update, stay tuned for a few more song demos from the past, then stuff cut from the new Piercing Lazer album.  Just trying to find my direction and how to make money right now.  Stay tuned!

Last guy is my old pal Row Skino, he's rapping on a song on my next album.


New Album!

Go pick up my new FREE album of demos from years ago that were unreleased!  It's my new experimental Real Faction album, Observation; Exploration, an originally scrapped album from 2011, with unreleased tracks and demos that never got done, plus bonus tracks. 

Download it for free, it's my gift to you: https://realfaction.bandcamp.com/album/observation-exploration

I'm happy to announce we have only a handful of demo songs to go, and a new song or two will be popping up soon.  This year I've been pumping out unreleased songs and demos from distant past. 

1743246_154207541412_ObservationEPcover1400.jpg

I'll be uploading the rest of those tracks (already uploaded some here) in the next week.  It was basically an unfinished album, but releasing it anyway, since I'm proud of what got done.




What's Next? Two MORE New Albums?!?

All the demo songs and unreleased songs in general have been fillers to entertain you guys while I've been working on the new material for Piercing Lazer and Kid Projekt, but also a small surprise for next year as well, so it won't just be two albums.  I hope to get the Piercing Lazer album done in Spring or Summer


The next album is the Kid Projekt album I'm getting closer to finishing, releasing January 16th, not too far from Pixel Day.  I'll be dropping a new track from that album next month.

PS: For anyone who's read this far, here's a special reward.  It's a teaser to something, but can you figure out what?

1743246_154207656943_eryeryer.jpg



Live Scripted Comedy Podcast Series "The Midnight Munch"


I've also been working on my live scripted comedy podcast, so more voice-acting from me, and it'll be interactive with the fans (you guys) during the live shows, too.  I plan on also launching that sometime in January, I hope, or February. 


Thats all for now, see some of you tomorrow!

Yes, you heard right.  A surprise new Real Faction album I just announced, and my Discord server for the fans.  But before I get into that...
 



NG Midwest Meetup 2018 (November)

Don't forget, November 13th (Tuesday) at 6 PM, the NG Midwest Meetup 2018 is happening at Recbar (10301 Taylorsville Rd, Jeffersontown, KY 40299).  Come visit Louisville, KY!  It's my birthday bash, too!  Arcade games and food and what not, and if you're 21 or over, drinks! 

You'll see me, I'm hosting.  Here's a couple pics of the place.  It's decked out with gamer decor, too, what the blurry stuff won't show you.

New Real Faction Album(s)

So, I didn't think it would be this soon before I'd drop another RF album, and for free, but, thing is, it's past work.  Let me explain.  Firstly, it's songs from 2010-2012, some that have never seen the light of day, especially not on Newgrounds.  Second, it was going to originally drop in 2011 until I scrapped it. 

The hacker issues made production harder along the way, originating in 2009, but those songs got scrapped out of my control, take a guess as to why.  So, it's not done, but I'm releasing what was finished, minus the vocals on some tracks.  It was originally going to be a Piercing Lazer effort, a softer side, but...this doesn't really sound like Piercing Lazer, at all, so...I'm releasing it under Real Faction, it's experimental.

Some of the songs have vocals, some don't, and theres instrumental versions of some that do.  I will be uploading these songs to NG and YouTube, but if you want the album cover and the collection to yourself, it's easier to get it on BandCamp through Discord 2 weeks early, or when it drops, November 14th, my birthday.  Re: Member, is a song I just dropped last night, here on NG, that's one of the songs from it.

So, it's called, Observation; Exploration, as it was originally titled in 2011.

1743246_154080775951_ObservationEPcover1400.jpg



BONUS: I just dropped the release date of my next Kid Projekt hiphop album with the album cover done.  It's called Under Construction, and it's darker, more personal.  Some of it samples old songs, so I won't be able to upload every track here, sadly, due to the copyright rules. 

I'm hoping to finish one of the tracks soon to release it, it comes out on January 16th, 2019.  It's going to feature my rapper friends @Cyberdevil and Row Skino on a couple tracks.  Thanks to my friend, Hunter for the background photo she took.

1743246_154080810452_UnderConstructionCover1400jpeg.jpg

Fun fact: The album cover was inspired by The Fast and the Furious movies and posters, cause I love those movies, and I figured the style I was going for sort of fit.  I'm pretty happy with it. 

The Piercing Lazer album has been moved to next year, but here's the lineup of stuff I'm releasing in the meantime, and uploading more unreleased demos between here and there, not that many left, then I'll start cranking out more new music previews, BUT I'm still working on that live scripted podcast thing with my characters and voice acting, I'll keep you up to date on that. 

That's all for now, I'll let you know when Venturescape episode 8 is done, too.  Peace.

So, besides working on my new albums, I've been working on something off and on for 2 years, left it for a while but started it up again, been writing, and it involves my characters, my voices, a scripted live comedy podcast series that reminds you of 50's radio and modern radio perhaps?  It's satire.  More details in the video below.

If you want a preview, here's a test/preview of the format I did 2 years ago, music by Captain Audio: https://instaud.io/2PzP

Also, here's my fan discord server if you wanna talk with me and the fans and stay updated and have discord exclusive previews of my stuff: https://discord.gg/dyBdfvF

PS: See you at the NG Meetup on November 13th!  Details here: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1018282

I prefer not to post this sort of stuff on newgrounds about my personal life most of the time, because I don't want to be negative, or a drag, but I guess I'm reaching out for help, because I sincerely need it right now.  As of late I've mostly been okay, but due to some stuff that's been going on today, stuff that triggered certain emotions....i'm not okay today.  You probably won't read most of this which I don't expect many to, it is a lot to read after all.

Anyway, here's a basic vent about my current personal life.




Today i had a fight with my dad because he's very stubborn, angry, and I stopped accepting his apologies because it's a routine.  Do something to emotionally hurt me and be stubborn doing things his way selfishly, apologize, do it again.  He'll never change, and he'll do it again, and again.  That's how it's been for years, since I was a kid, what he always does. 

I've been dealing with mold in my a/c ventilation system, im very allergic, so that's been going on the past week.  And yes, those two things connect, because I always have to rely on my parents for money, and things.  I only make like $400 a month with my current job.

Overall, I'm just lost with my identity, what to do with my life job-wise.  I wanted the Kickstarter to work out but it's still sitting at $31....and I guess that's all my Venturescape series will ever be worth, but that's probably just my anxiety talking, that's how I feel I guess...I've failed a lot, and I know failure is what it takes to get better, and you have to keep trying, but right now I feel terrified, and uncertain of what to do.

Living with Autism is the most annoying, the biggest struggle of my life.

It makes me slower at many things than most people, and my capacity for patience is physically shrunk in half because of the way I was born, that's what it does to my brain, it didn't develop/grow on one side as much as other people's brains (yes, literally).  I'm also quite emotionally sensitive due to it, and being in certain environments is hard, I'm still yet to totally find a way to deal with my frustrations, and bad managers.

I'm reluctant to apply to many jobs due to my fear of repeating past failures at past jobs of certain kinds.  I'm trying my best to get past it, but I genuinely don't have a plan for my life outside of what I do with my Venturescape series, and music here which I don't really lean on.  It's why I've tried hard to promote the Kickstarter and what not, that's my dream, I'm actually good at that.  I feel lost. I'll even admit I've been crying my eyes out, I don't care anymore, fuck it, you know now.

I know I have to get past this somehow, but this will slow my progress further with videos maybe....or maybe in a day or two I'll figure something out, maybe not, I really don't know guys...I'm sorry.  I've kept living with let downs and failures, and it's getting to me. I'm still better than I used to be emotionally, but today's been a really rough one. I still have those every once in a while, we all do. I just feel I've let myself down, and let you all down. I'm sorry.

Anyway, Venturescape will still keep going, i'm still waiting on my actress to re-record her lines in the next week, hopefully. In terms of music, soon I'll upload a demo from the past, another unreleased song I'm happy with for the most part besides the mixing issues, that I think you all will enjoy.

And thank you to those who have given me wonderful supportive comments in the past on here and on my videos, it means a lot. Keep on keeping on, everyone. I just wish I knew what to do financially right now, what job to get, what I can do. I feel pretty beat up and broken right now guys. Anyway, stay tuned.




PS: I can't wait to see you all at the NG Meetup party next month, I hope people show up.  Woo.
