So yes, there are many reasons why the next Project Kingdom XIII track is taking some time. I assure you though, you will not be disappointed. That said, I have a section on the latest track that I thought would be nice to open up to a few of the Kingdom Hearts communities that I'm aware/part of.
As the title states, you do need to have a fairly decent microphone (no laptops microphone audio please) with knowledge on controlling your audio aka proper noise profile, no puffs or thumps, no clicks or distortion, etc. I realize that yes, this could be a stretch, but you know, if Hans Zimmer can pull it off, maybe I can as well you know (lol)? You never know who's here lurking ;).
If you have something online readily available (YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, etc.), please post a link to the sample as a reply with your email as a contact (or if you'd rather, just direct message me the information. If you do not have either but you have audio that you'd like to send to me directly, please send it by email to contact[at]keyjayonline.com.
For the qualified, I'll be in contact with the procedures on how to get the reference audio to load up into your DAW for recording. For all others, thank you greatly for your interest and hope that you enjoy what I have in store!
Lol I don't mean to boast, but...yeah this track is sounding amazing so far. With every addition, I get invigorated every time. I know you're going to love it.
Thanks all and looking forward to hearing all of your wonderful singing!
Just released a new track today :D
Join me, Hand in Hand as we bump this to 100 Side X Side. If you didn’t get the obvious reference just now, then I can’t help ya XD. This is a stylistic Future Bass House Remix of Hand in Hand from Kingdom Hearts originally composed by Yoko Shimomura.
Been having fun talking with you guys on Discord. I figured now is a good time more than ever to introduce my Kingdom Hearts based project, Project Kingdom XIII (PKXIII).
What is it?
Allow me to outline a few highlights:
An original music production based on the world of Kingdom Hearts; an homage to the works of Yoko Shimomura, Utada Hikaru, and maybe even Nobuo Uematsu, in our own unique way!
Covers and original songs inspired by the original soundtrack, plus a few unique bonuses
Multi genre and styles spanning the gamut of modern classical, EDM, Hip-Hop, and even acapella renditions.
New arrangements, instrumentations, lyrical content, performed by new artists from Florida to London!
Starting as a 3 track EP project, but with your support, we’ll go as far as we can! We’d love to do a 13 track album instead :D
PROJECT IS COMPLETELY FREE via Soundcloud and Youtube for Streaming, and available for true lossless quality download (FLAC or WAV) soon.
Keeping up on the Project
I'll do my best to keep posts updated here upon new changes and track releases, however PKXIII now has its own website: http://pkxiii.com. Sign up with your email and you will have updates delivered to you. NOTE: For GMAIL users, make sure when you get your email that you move the mail to primary tab and click yes, or add contact[at]keyjayonline.com to your allow list.
Has the project Started?
Yes it has! In fact, we have one track out now! Time to get your spoopy on by visiting either playlist on Soundcloud or Youtube (cosplay version ^_^). [12/11] Now, we're all set to release two new tracks this month on December 13th and another on December 25th (Happy Holidays!).
Right now the project is slated as a 3 track EP however I will push to get more tracks completed. Ideally, I want this to become a 13+ track album, but I will need additional support from the community in order for that to happen. Once we finish our initial run of the tracks we have planned/are able to do without much trouble, we will explore options for the remaining tracks.
Need any Help?
Sure! If you have a specific skill, idea, or anything else that you'd like to contribute to the project, just email me at email@example.com and add in the title, PKXIII. Also, don't forget to like, share, and subscribe to the platform of your choosing!
More of your work?
You can find more of what I do/have done over on my official website: http://keyjayonline.com
Thanks so much! Good to know. I actually might have something for the chorus group soon for the same project! I'll make a master post there as soon as I can :)
Just joined recently :D. I also still have to play Birth by Sleep. I'm going from top to bottom again and just finished KH1...skipping ReChained though.... >_> lol
Glad to be here! I love these games and I'm anxiously waiting for more details on 3 like the rest of you guys!
Just a little about me, I'm a musician, voice actor, I design websites, I hate grape medicine, and I play a lot of games. Overwatch has me occupied at the moment due to the event, but I have Cuphead waiting for me.
To be honest, I'm also here to introduce a Kingdom Hearts based music production project I'm working on called Project Kingdom XIII. Coincidentally, I also just released the first track today for Halloween:
It's going to be a multi genre project probably around 3 to 4 tracks to start, but if we get the support we need, I might be able to get it to a 13 track album :D Let me know if you want to keep updated with it.
I'll be sure to give back to this community in any way I can...perhaps with some gameplay videos of me sucking at Kingdom Hearts (ironically, I'll be buying some new gear to help me record better as well lol) ^_^.
Anyways, cheers guys! Great to be here!
