You people rock lol! Good luck on your next song!

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Hey Maki! Thanks for the comment! We just uploaded a new song, I'm gonna send you a PM so you can have a listen (and hopefully a download).


2009-02-19 16:44:00

you are just awesome. ._.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks so much man!


2009-02-19 23:10:02

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh shit. Two artists I respect collaborating on a joint project, no less? This is really fantastic. Congrats on your top 5, btw.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Woo! Lira! Thanks alot!

Oh and if you're up for it, we'd love to work with you (although we know not everyone has all the time in the world).

Thanks again!


2009-02-21 22:50:08

HOLY SH***T. Lol. This music is GOOD. If you put this on an album I guarantee you it will sell. The sound is unique, catchy, and IMHO amazing.


ApproachingNirvana responds:

Haha, thanks man. That's what we're hoping and that's the eventual plan. For right now we're putting things together for plans for an album. We're getting a pretty good response from the people here on NGs, but we're going to moving beyond NGs (still - we won't forget it). Hopefully someone will notice us. We'll see what happens this week.

Thanks so much man!


2009-02-22 14:58:50

woah, you two are doing well :)

and with just 3 songs up!! Well done guys.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks Zero. Hopefully we'll do well this next week. But only time (and zerobombers) will tell.

Thanks again!

Would love to work on tracks with you guys outside of NG (lack of free time = pretty much only doing original/pro projects). I listened to all your tracks-- I prefer Heaven's Storm to No More Words, and Wrecked by Deja Vu to The Heist (the strings in The Heist don't work for me. hmmmm. Were you using EastWest, though? I somehow expected better) -- so far I think two of four are post-NG material, but 'tis still good to bounce tracks off of NG. Good luck with it all!

--- oh and. If you're moving forward with a serious venture anytime, I suggest that you make a MySpace musician's page; kind of strange being on MySpace, but it gets exposure like you wouldn't believe.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks for the comments Lira. Understandable about the strings. Yes they're EW, but I think they got muddled in the mix a bit. Anyhow, we'll PM about a song this weekend. I've gotta get going to work now.

In terms of a Myspace. That's on its way, we just wanted to have more songs done and have the Myspace page look a bit more professional than what we could provide.

Thanks Lira, we'll talk to you this weekend!


2009-02-28 11:32:06

So are you going to be able to make the song?

ApproachingNirvana responds:

We just sent you a PM about it.


2009-03-18 00:19:26

better them me and F-777 i say :O you got it going on!

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks Warcry!


2009-03-18 17:55:14

you should make an Instrumental version of Heaven's Storm!

ApproachingNirvana responds:

We actually will have an instrumental of Heaven's Storm coming with the EP we release. So definitely keep an eye out for that.


2009-03-19 13:48:42

hey, ure welcome for the post, but how do u make music? is there some kind of gadget on newgrounds or somthing or do u have to MAKE it? thnx for reading


ApproachingNirvana responds:

well to make music:

You need to use hardware to record sounds (like use a guitar or midi keyboard or mic) and then use software (like FL Studios, Logic Studios, Cubase, Reason). Check out the audio forum, their should be plenty help there.

Hope we helped you on your journey to making sweet musics


2009-03-23 01:00:18

hey just wondering can you give me a basic idea on when the EP will release???

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Yea! Depending on how fast Itunes/Amazon.com can review the EP, it should be out sometime in late April/early May. We'll be sending out messages to all our fans on here when it releases so if you want to favorite us as an artist, you will definitely be notified on here!



2009-03-25 21:24:47

Man I just herd your guys music and its THE BEST you guys are AWESOME looking forward to your new album! :)

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks! It should be out soon so keep your eyes open!


2009-03-28 18:36:54

you guys have the best music. i even used it in a couple flash's i've made.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks! Send us some links so we can check them out!


2009-04-01 21:45:21

You guys know eachother? How do you guys go about making your collabs? It must be really hard unless the person is next to you.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

RenoakRhythm lives in California, and Sinjim lives in Maryland. We collab via interwebs and tubes. It takes some getting used to. Our goal is definitely to have a studio to work in at the same time.


2009-04-02 18:45:49

Hay, I really like your music, especially Heavens Storm.
I was listening to your new Gummi Bears realese and it sparked an idea, the Manamana song.
Just a suggestion, but that would completly own if you guys did your own version of that.

ApproachingNirvana responds:


Haha, that would be interesting. I'll talk to Renoak and see what he thinks about it. Thanks for the suggestion, we'll definitely PM if we go through with it!


2009-04-07 18:39:16

you are teh king of techno.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks so much!

Remember to keep an eye open for our EP that's due out late April/early May. It's going to melt your face off


2009-04-23 23:16:41

Can you has my babies nao?

(also, who sings in most of the songs?)

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Haha, great to hear fromy ou Nal. We wouldn't mind working with you on some tracks :P (if you're interested).

The songs on NGs, I (SinJim) am mostly singing. Overall (between our myspace/EP and tracks we have yet to release) we tend to split right down the middle. It also really depends on which kind of voice the particular song calls for. We have two distinctly different styles so it helps when we're going for a specific style on one song or part of a song.

Anyways, great to hear from you! Glad you're our friend on the Myspaces!


2009-04-26 15:30:28

have you guys seen eachother in real life?

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Well if webcam counts as real life then yes.

Haha, no, we have not. Maybe one day.


2009-04-27 06:08:38

hmm okay =)

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Yea, in time we'll both be in a position where we're able to work together on a day-to-day basis. It sure would ease the process,that's for sure.


2009-05-10 20:04:35

I luv RenoakRhythm's music. I need to listen to SinJim more...very seldomly do I hear his.

ApproachingNirvana responds:



2009-05-27 15:26:32

Hey, I just got a friend request from you over on myspace and accepted it. Right after hearing Heaven's Storm I knew I remembered it from Newgrounds. Got a bunch of good songs going for yourself so I'll expect a bunch more amazing songs to come up. =)

Keep it up.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks! We've got a lot of songs in the works and a new album set for release July 1! Keep an eye on our Myspace as there'll be opportunities to get some free stuff.

We'll reply back to your message on Myspace later tonight or tomorrow, we hit the message limit hehe.

Thanks again for the support!
