Nik Furious: 7 Star Sky Flash Kick

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

13 original instrumental songs. Electronic, surf, funk, rock, and more.

Each song on 7 Star Sky Flash Kick has a special story behind it. I'll be sharing those stories with you and adding them to the tracklist below as I go. I changed my mind! Though the stories are awesome, I'd rather spend my time making new songs than writing blog posts about ones I've already made 😉

Watch the 7 Star Sky Flash Kick album sampler video:

The songs on this album were written and recorded between 2003-2013. A few of them have been released with older mixes and different names. Many of them are theme songs to podcasts produced by myself and my friends including Comic Book Pitt, 3 Chicks Review Comics, and various shows on AudioShocker.com.

The album cover is a collaboration between myself and my incredible girlfriend, Justique Woolridge. She created a painting inspired by the title. I scanned in both the front of it and the paint-smudged back...

...and then I layered both of them on top of each other in Photoshop and altered the colors to produce the final album design.

The album is named after one of Chun-Li's moves from Marvel vs. Capcom. Here's what the 7 Star Sky Flash Kick looks like in the video game:

Finally but most importantly, a lot of people have supported me, inspired me, and helped me create these songs. Thanks to Justique, Ed Marino, Jennifer Marino-Gabrielli, Josh Kobylarz, Dan Greenwald, Kelly Thompson, Ross Campbell, Scott Niekum, Kaylie McDougal, Neal Shyam, and Shawn Atkins.

Nik Furious: Da Bounce

Monday, September 5th, 2011

On the latest episode of Naked Jews and Neo-Hippies podcast, Dustin said that you can find a copy of this song by Googling "nik furious da bounce"... well, sadly, that's not true. Because I've never posted the full song until now!

In fact, this completed version of Da Bounce has heretofore only been heard on earlier episodes of the Naked Jews podcast.

However, I did post some stages of this song's construction as a part of my abandoned Building Da Beat series on the AudioShocker. There's even a special scrapped version of the track with a ton of crunchy electric guitar on it.

This song will be included on my upcoming album 7 Star Sky Flash Kick. I'm only a few songs away from being done with that collection of tracks, so hopefully I'll release the full thing around the end of the year.

3 Chicks podcast theme... with rap!!!

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

It's not too often you hear a non-instrumental Nik Furious song... but that's exactly what you got here!!!

When Kelly Thompson contacted me about making an original track for her new podcast, 3 Chicks Review Comics, she expected an instrumental song like my other podcast themes (for the AudioShocker and Comic Book Pitt, natch).

I suggested the idea of shouting "3 Chicks" in there and she liked it. But when I came up with the idea of adding a verse to it, I decided to keep it secret and surprise Kelly with it when the song was complete. When it came time for the unveiling, Kelly dug the rap and told me she'd save the vocal version for special occasions.

And today just happens to be one of those occasions! 3 Chicks Review Comics Episode 005 [link coming later today!] was the right time to let the vocal version loose... and now I'm thrilled to be able to share this version of the theme with you.

If you like this 3 Chicks theme, check out my original instrumental album Brilliant Shower.

UPDATE: The full-length instrumental version of this song is available as Egg Shaker on my album 7 Star Sky Flash Kick.
