St. Nik rides again! Back from the dead, he rears his funky head. Surfing time from present to past, dropping hot mixes so you can shake your ass.
My final instrumental songs made under the name Nik Furious are now available for your hungry ears:
If you backed our successful Kickstarter campaign late last year, then you should already have a download code waiting for you in your inbox. However, if you didn't pre-order our project... then you can buy it now!
I hope you enjoy these jams. Although Nik Furious may finally be takin' the ol' dusty trail off into the horizon, I'll be back soon with a new music name and some fresh instrumental cuts.
The final Nik Furious mixtape. A collection of 13 instrumentals featuring original funk songs, hip hop beats, and some weird remixes.
There are two ways to listen to this mixtape. First, there's the 22 minute continuous Smart Bomb mix that includes a few surprises:
Second, there are the individual tracks that make up Smart Bomb. You can download the Smart Bomb ZIP file (33:36, 50 MB) or check out the tracks one-by-one:
3. Fresh Frunk (0:51)
An original song recorded in 2009. The full version was used as the beat for the NSFW Laycock Chronicles pt 1 by the Unlicensed Attorneys at Law. It was also the theme for the Destruct-O-Cast podcast.
5. Jamm (2:07)
A remix of "Let Me Clear My Throat (Old School Reunion Remix '96)" by DJ Kool feat. Biz Markie and Doug E. Fresh. Used as the beat for the NSFW Patio 2 by the Unlicensed Attorneys at Law.
7. Milky (2:26)
An original song recorded in 2012.
10. Slipped (1:58)
A remix of an old R&B song... but I made this beat back in 2004 and I completely forget the name of the song that I sampled! Used as the beat for the NSFW Slip It Inside by the Unlicensed Attorneys at Law.
11. Smart Bomb (2:36)
A remix of one of Steve Ferrone's drum solos from George Duke Band: Live at Shibuya Public Hall - Tokyo, Japan 1983.
Why is this is the final Nik Furious mixtape?
Partially because -- after 4 years of posting music on this blog -- I've finally exhausted my surplus of old Nik Furious beats. But the other (far more important!) reason is that I'm sick of using a derivative name.
Back in 2004, I thought Nik Furious was a clever hip-hop twist on the name of a b-list superhero. It was a subtle wink and nod to other comic book readers.
However, that's changed pretty significantly since Iron Man came out in 2008 and Samuel L. Jackson assumed the role of the one-eyed super spy. Now Nick Fury is a household name!
Also, my affection for mainstream superhero comics is a lot lower than it was a decade ago when I first started using Nik Furious as my musical moniker.
Not to mention that I have ideas for comics about my sonic alter ego and I don't want anything to nix those dreams.
I've hidden my new music name and logo somewhere in this blog post. So if you wanna know what it is, you've gotta hunt for it!
I dunno when my first release under this new name will be out, but I know you'll be hearing more tunes from me soon.
But it has some sweet retro futuristic opening music that I had to remix:
I named the tune Deeno Adventure in honor of the terrible voice acting where they keep saying "dee-no" over and over again. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but I always thought it was pronounced "die-no".
The song is a Valentine's Day gift I made for Justique. This year was our seventh Valentine's Day together, so riffing on the lucky number theme I decided to name the song Jackpot because when I met Justique I hit the jackpot!!!
The music starts at about 3:20 into the episode. It's a mellow instrumental funk jam with a slow go-go style drum beat, fat fretless bass, squealy synths, and acoustic guitar. I hope you dig it!
