Since I did a big room version Strong Force for its one year special, I am thinking of either remaking and or making X remakes of my old songs (mainly those I made from CHIPS) when their dates come close.
CHIPS VIII: The Big Dance
Overdrive and Overload
CHIPS X: Dreams
CHIPS SAIM (Story and Art-Inspired Music)
Digital Behavior *This is highly unlikely
CHIPS Secret Santa
Warning *Please notify me in advance (within 4 weeks of the date of this song)

I actually cannot believe it has been a year since I made Strong Force. :O
In a past news post, I made this story for Strong Force:
While I was making Truth 2, I was thinking of putting in a dubstep drop, but I kept failing, so I went to the demo song Jasmina by Goldhands and used a similar pattern, but I still kept failing. So for the 5 days after, I just went the normal route for Truth 2 and improvised. Not long after that, in April 24, I started a totally new project just for testing a simple dubstep track. I listened to Goldhands's Jasmina again and then listened to ELEPS44's Effects and Dubstep Machine remix. When I got to the pre-drop, I was still trying to figure out a great pattern for a dubstep drop. I was in the same position as I was a month prior, failing just like I did in the drop attempt in Truth 2. So I stopped working on the project and went back to Truth 2 and finished it. Truth 2, at the time, became my best song and most productive, with a total production time of 40 hours. Truth 2 is still my most productive song as of today. So 3 days after I uploaded Truth 2, I began working on the unnamed project (soon to be Strong Force). Just 2 hours after, I found out about a weekly contest called NGCHIPS, so this gave me a bigger inspiration boost. On the next day, I had a eureka moment for the first dubstep drop. 3 hours later, the first dubstep drop became my best work I have done since my first music piece I have done by myself in 2014. Just only 2 days after, the second drop idea came. I just pitched the notes to different pitches so it sounds different, and so it did. I finished it on May 9, where between then and May 13, I tweaked some stuff here and there until it became the Strong Force song you here today. I renamed the unnamed song to Strong Force on May 12. That is pretty much the big story.
Every once in a while, I come back listening to Strong Force and wondering if I could travel back in time just to see how I made the song. Even though I have a lot more songs better than Strong Force now, Strong Force was mainly my big turning point for making music (yes, Truth 2 has a major part in this as well).
I am no longer a part of the CHIPS community as I have moved away from it because I had too much time on my hands with other things. I do appreciate the feedback I have gotten from them though. :)

Sorry for being inactive for over 15 days. Usually, I would upload songs here weekly, but it has been around 2 weeks since I did my last song: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/795182
I have been doing a lot of music lately in the meantime, here is a list of what I have been working on:
1. NGAP15 A-BOT's THEME
This is a theme collaboration with @FGK2015, and it will be his last collaboration, because he is leaving. We will try to get this theme ready for NGAP15 hopefully within the date of April 21st.
2. CHIPS CACAOPHONY ENTRIES
I have one entry underway that is in the Chips Cacaophony Bonus Round 2. No further details on this song.
3. REMIX FOR TheFantasticZ (TRAPPED CHAPTER 3)
I have recently been talking to @TheFantasticZ about remixing one of his songs yesterday. The remix is not yet official on which song it will be, but it will be a future song he will be making. I also decided to make the remix the third song in Trapped.

So apparently, Xtrullor's Paradigm Shift somehow came of the featured audio and my song Drop It is first.
First of all, I was not expecting Drop It to be featured at all, and I definitely was not expected it to be at the top. It reminded me of a crappy song I did called Dubstep Machine.
Am I saying the two are similar? Likely, but not necessarily the case. Dubstep Machine got at least 440 plays in just 3 hours, and at least 200 more plays in the next 3 hours (that makes at least 640 plays in its first 6 hours). Drop It got at least 300 plays on its first day, and at least 650 plays on its first week. Dubstep Machine was rather done with minimal work, but Drop It took 25 hours to make.
My songs don't get featured as often as artists like DJVI (shown in the second image with "Like An Animal") or Zyzyx (shown in the first image with "Scars"), but I get shocked just to see it barely featured (like how "Skeleton Party" is). This is only the second time I have gotten a song with the top feature (and second top feature this year), but I have yet to get a song frontpaged.
I have gotten more than just these two songs featured, I have actually gotten quite a few songs featured. The problem being is that when my songs get featured, the ratings start to drop down like how a lot of usual unnoticed artists' songs are. Am I saying that I am unnoticed? Well, if you compare somebody like myself with around 70 fans to your usual artists like F-777 and Xtrullor who have at least 1,000 fans, then I am very much unnoticed.
The real reason I was shocked that this song is unlike the rest of my featured songs. It was not a collab (Dubstep Machine), remix (new Viking Arena remix, Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites by Skrillex, Alone by Marshmello), cover (none yet actually), nor remake (no remake yet, but I guess you can call my Alone remix a remake).
Sorry for making this sound like a big deal. It is just that I do feel shocked that a song of mine gets featured, but at the same time, it feels a bit boring because the usual trend I get with the songs after they get featured, but I am not totally mad about it either.
