So today I decided to call time on X Sentinel. Here's a post I made earlier on my Facebook page which tells all:
"Hey guys, It comes with a heavy heart to write this, but it's time I did. As of today I won't be making any more X Sentinel tracks. I know I don't have many followers but the ones I do have mean a lot to me, and I've spoken to a lot of people personally thanks to this, but I think it's time to move on.
There's no definite this or that reason for it, but more a collection of different ones that have forced my hand. I feel I owe some of you an explanation though so if you want one here it is.
When I started out back in 2007 under this name I had no freaking idea what the hell I was doing, X Sentinel was just a name I thought sounded cool and I wanted it to be me, so I made the name well before I even made anything worth listening to. Then about 3 years later I started getting better and I was getting a few listens which inspired me more. Then dubstep got big, and I got swept away by it. Dubstep was so new to me and so epic that it really inspired me to get better with my technical abilities, I honestly owe all of my knowledge of music production to that genre. But the Dubstep phase is over, and what's more it has been for a while. I never wanted to jump on any bandwagon and that's why I always tried to inject something different into my songs, but lately I'm having trouble making anything that I really care about under this genre. There are so many better artists than me doing things I wish I could with what dubstep has become, some of the branch-offs like glitch-hop, trap and so on are really great, but I don't feel like they're where I belong.
So, again, I think it's time I closed the book for X. I had some of the best times of my life writing these songs, and some of your messages about how my songs have inspired or helped you really mean the world to me. My pages will stay up as long as the sites are around, so you can always get X no matter what!
One last time, I want to thank you all so so much for all the support. I want to thank GirlStep especially for being awesome and making some of my favorite shit with me, also PoniiboiAtrasolis Young Pupp Leonardo Music Newgrounds Mexpha XRP Radio and of course M.U.D. Production's There's also so many people I can't tag because you're not artists! But know I love you all guys.
So I guess I'll finish with this song [The song was Game Over... heh], more appropriate now than ever! I'll still be round writing music and more! Maybe you'll come across me again soon!
So yeah, that's that. BUT, Newgrounds will always be my home, Sentinel or not, so I'll still be putting all of my work up here for everyone. I think I'll focus on writing some good game/movie music for all of the awesome people here, who knows? I can do anything now! :)
Thanks for all the XS support Newgrounds, I wouldn't have had a fraction of the success without this great community.
