LycanOfficial's News

Posted by LycanOfficial - July 18th, 2021


So, I decided I want to go on hiatus from releasing new music indefinitely. Probably for just a few weeks, but may be longer. It's just that I got a lot of big questions in life that I need to figure out answers to, like what am I about and what do I want for ME in life. Because I've been running around for about 3 years or so having no answers to these questions, instead only ever living for other people, and it ain't done my head any favors, to say the least. So I want to eliminate as many of my responsibilities as I can to give myself more time to think about this, and right now, releasing new music is the easiest one to take off the schedule. :/


In addition, not sure if I'm gonna do this temporarily or permanently, but for the time being at least, I am removing ALL of my music from use in Geometry Dash. I know, I ain't Xtrullor or Creo, so when I do it, nobody cares, but like Xtrullor, I too have honestly grown to despise the very same community my work depends on, and I wanna make a point of that. It's a great game in theory, but y'all have made for a toxic community on so many levels, and I'm hesitant to touch it with a 10 foot pole, to say the least. Come back to me about this game when y'all realize you elites at the game are the minority and not the majority, and that the other ~85% of players (and that's just among the Steam players) shouldn't be made to feel worthless for not being at a talent level that was top tier back when I started playing. And outta solidarity with people like Xtrullor? Also, come back to me when you realize the game serves the music artists' careers, not the other way around.

I've decided to open myself up for song commissions!


TERMS FOR COMMISSIONS:

-I charge $7.50 USD for every 30 seconds of duration on the piece (rounding up; that is, if the piece is 45 seconds, you pay for a minute) if it's an original song, or $5.00 USD if it's a remix. This means the longer you want the song, the more you'll pay. Payments will be taken via PayPal only.

-Anyone who wants custom vocals on their commission is going to have to pay me up front for the cost of hiring a singer (I do not sing myself, and you do not want me to; this said, any singers for custom vocals are a separate entity from myself and so paying me does not cover the cost for them). I will provide you with their costs before requesting payment for this. I also advise but not require that you provide me with the lyrics the singer is to record, as I am not a good lyricist but still want to provide you with a quality product.

-The person commissioning the piece can provide me with a due date for the commission, provided they can also be ready to pay at that due date. Please allow me a minimum of 3 days to work; I'm not taking a "I need a 5 minute song and I need it for tomorrow" commission.

-I will not make anything with explicit content of any kind. This is not negotiable. If you wish to add it yourself, you're welcome to do so, but any version of the commission I release on my platforms will not include these.

-I will provide the person commissioning the piece with 1-2 previews before the final work is finished.

-IF I AM LATE TO HAVE THE WORK READY BY THE GIVEN DUE DATE, WHERE APPLICABLE: I will deduct $0.50 USD off the price for every 30 seconds of song, per day that I am late.

-IF YOU ARE LATE TO HAVE PAYMENT READY BY THE GIVEN DUE DATE OR BY WHEN I'VE FINISHED THE COMMISSION: there will be daily compound interest of 1% tacked onto the charge (after any deductions for lateness; i.e. if I'm late 2 days on a 3 minute song, the interest will use $39 as the initial cost instead of $45) until the due date.

-Payment must be received BEFORE I hand over the final product. This rule is in place for the same reason that the previous rule about interest is in place. As of this writing, I have been commissioned for 3 pieces in recent times and gave them their finished works before receiving payment, and the commissioner has not only not paid since then but also displayed no interest in paying whatsoever, a thing I can't do anything about because late payment fees were not in my original contract which was also not in writing, AKA that guy can go the rest of time without paying me and I'm powerless to do anything about it. I am not allowing this to happen again.

-Anyone who receives a commission from me is free to do as they please with it (i.e. upload it on their YouTube channel), provided they credit me, but understand that I have full intentions of monetizing these releases and publishing them on my own platforms such as here on Newgrounds. This said, if you upload a piece I made for you on YouTube, expect a copyright claim. This does not mean I will take your upload down, only that I as the copyright holder will receive ad revenue on your upload.


I do not mean to be forceful with the use of caps and bolds; I just want to emphasize the important information here so anyone interested knows the basics of the terms. Please make sure you have read all of these terms before contacting me. You can contact me about commissions through my messages here on Newgrounds or via email @ djn3utral123r@gmail.com, preferably using the email address your PayPal is tied to, for purposes of more convenient billing. Thank you.


-Lycan

To all my listeners here, especially the ones who've been following me since 2019 or earlier:


Are there older songs of mine that you think deserve a second chance, a redo? Or maybe you liked an older song a lot and want to hear more of it?


Well, now you can voice these opinions for a shot at giving them this second chance! Linked in this message is a questionnaire of sorts, on which you can choose 3 songs of mine from 2018 or 2019 (all other years are omitted for reasons explained on the form) that you would like to see redone, as well as what genre you'd like to see the remake done in (this last part is ultimately my choice, but if the requested genres are reasonable enough, I will take them; this said, maybe don't ask me to turn a house song into a DnB song). The 3 most requested songs will all be given a V2 or 2.0 by the end of this year.

To all my Newgrounds followers:


Starting today, I'm rebranding all of my platforms, because the excessive complexity of my name is hurting the brand. From here on out, all of my platforms will go by the name "Lycan" or something to that effect. Wasn't an easy call for me, ditching the name, but it needed to be done.

iu_214309_6373562.jpgJust so you know, my new album "Aeon" is out now!


The following links are where you can buy my album, as of this writing:

-iTunes: https://music.apple.com/us/album/aeon/1544976834

-Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/0465Alnzl8mnaMyhcj1buM?si=dUMfL6hgSWudNU99S6avNg

-Amazon Music: https://www.amazon.com/Aeon-DJ-N3utral123r/dp/B08QNF98MK/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=DJ+N3utral123r&qid=1608893083&s=dmusic&search-type=ss&sr=1-5


Alternatively, you can get it drip-fed 1 song a day here or on YouTube or SoundCloud. If you choose to buy my album or any songs on it though, I ask that you leave reviews of the album on those sites, as it would really help me get my name out there. Thank you!

Posting this as a reminder that my new album releases tomorrow! I will post links to the full album here tomorrow, but as for Newgrounds receiving the songs itself, I'm going to make this album drip-fed, releasing one song each day. This will also be what I do for YouTube and Soundcloud. But, if you're impatient to hear the rest, the links for Spotify, iTunes, etc. will be here.

Also, before I forget, Merry Christmas to anyone who celebrates it, and happy holidays to everyone who doesn't!

iu_207802_6373562.jpgNew album, "Aeon", releasing on Christmas Day to Spotify, and will release to many other platforms in the weeks to follow! This album features no shortage of tracks that those who have heard previews have gone so far as to describe as "immersive", be they for the hard-hitting, bassy techno and dubstep tracks or for the beauty and emotion of the slower, more ambient works. Overall, I am very proud of this release, and I can't wait to see what you all think of it when it's released!


The following is the full list of platforms for which this album will be made available (listed in alphabetical order): Alibaba, Amazon Music, AMI Entertainment, Anghami, Apple Music, Boomplay, Claro Musica, Deezer, Facebook, Google Play, iHeartRadio, Instagram, KKBox, Melon Plus, Napster, NetEase, Newgrounds, Pandora, Resso, Saavn, Shazam, SoundCloud, Sound Exchange, Spotify, Tencent, Tidal, TikTok, Twitch, VK, Yandex, YouTube


Purchase price for the album will probably be between $7-9 USD, but I do not control official release prices. Should you choose to buy it on platforms like Amazon Music or Apple Music, I encourage you to leave a review; it'd really help me to grow the brand.

So, for those unaware, I entered into the NGUAC 2020 music competition on Newgrounds, which is a competition for smaller artists. Kinda helps get their name out there.

Anyway, round 1 results came out today, and to my surprise, I made it through round 1, avoiding being part of the half of the competition that was eliminated. :)

There was a total of 444 contestants at the start, and now I move on to round 2 with the other 221 who passed. Very excited, and I'll update you all at the end of round 2! Stay tuned for my next song, which will be my Round 2 submission! 😁

Thank you all for helping me reach 50 fans on Newgrounds! I know it's not much, relatively speaking, but considering how much harder it is to get fans here than it is subs on YT or followers on SoundCloud, I'd still deem it an accomplishment, and I'd like to thank you all for helping me reach this!

As of recently, I've started getting my music on Spotify and a few other places, such as Google Play Music; currently working on Apple Music still. Anyway, currently, 6 of my songs are on Spotify; namely, "Together", "My World", "Magic", "Planes", "Foxtrot" and "Lycanthropy". You can find the videos for even more of my stuff on Google Play Music, such as my "Transformers Prime" remix and "Spack Jarrow" remix. Feel free to check my music out there, maybe download them or put them in your playlists! Would greatly appreciate it!


Thank all of you for helping me get this far! You have no idea what this means to me!
