Sweetness and Love in Your Arms

By: Vote4Nixon - Friday, July 11th, 2014

The following is a guest post from Dell!


First off we have the popular speedcore artist m1dlet returning to Thirdstyle! The song Die In Your Arms Tonight was published by Splitterblast Records on June 7th, 2010. Brace yourself for a tough file, at a quick 250 BPM it has 16ths stream throughout, and some 32nd burst rolls as well! The easy, medium, and hard difficulties were stepped by accomplished publisher and simfiler, ChloMoDJz! The beginner difficulty was stepped by one of our fearless leaders, Tiza the Snow Fairy, more commonly known as Vote4Nixon.

I Like Your Hat

By: Vote4Nixon - Monday, March 17th, 2014

Get ready with some keyboard smashin' with our new song and new simfiler.

It's been a quite while since we have seen a Danpaladin song in game. So here we are with our new song I Like Your Hat by DanPaladin (a.k.a. synj).This song has some jacks in the hard file at 125 BPM (but I think you can do it). Speaking of DanPaladin, he is an American video game artist and designer who also makes music. DanPaladin also draws, you can see some of his drawings here. This file was stepped by our new simfiler and most active chatter on Thirdstyle, Onilateur.

Here are some words from the simfiler:

I'm a layering freak, so I did just that for that file, with different degrees of layering depending on the difficulty and how natural it felt. No instrument was stressed in the making of this file. As such the hard file is full of jacks, the medium is really fluid and the easy has silences. I won't take responsibility for the beginner.


Be sure to like Onilateur's Hat and Play I Like Your hat now!

Check out DanPaladin on Newgrounds and on his official site.

V4N Edit: Also, be sure to congratulate ChloMoDJz on achieving the status of Publisher for all his efforts to keep the front page up to date! Great job DJz!


Punching, Fighting, and More Chickens!

By: Vote4Nixon - Saturday, March 8th, 2014

Yet another post from ChloMoDJz! Thanks once again for keeping the front page of TS active!

This is my third Front Page Post, and I will make more posts to keep you guys updated on Thirdstyle.


As of now, we have a new song from an extreme 8bit, dance, and metal artist Rainbowdragoneyes called Punch You. ChloMoDJz stepped this file and describes it as a "short but terrible file" because of its streamy patterns at 201 BPM, so it will sure punch you.

Play Punch You now on Thirdstyle!

After those streams, chill and play this easy file by our comeback simfiler YoSniper, who also stepped the last Roland La Goy song. The song is Fight or Ignite, and it comes with friendly steps. Buy it now in the Thirdstyle Store for 200 Stylepoints.

Play this now and know if you will Fight or Ignite!


And last we have our 8Bit, video game song, Golden Poultry City by Mowtendoo. He is a Youtube artist who makes a lot of videos about Terry Crews. This song was stepped by our new simfiler and new Official Overlord Dell2150.

Here are some words from Dell2150 about his own simfile: "If you look through beginner, easy, medium, and hard you can see the file is built of blocks. The melody has one line (that follows PR the best I could) and so does the bassline. Harder difficulties combine the two, and add shorter holds for cymbal sounds and add in 16ths for the middle section etc."

Watch his funny videos here!

By: Vote4Nixon - Monday, March 3rd, 2014

The following is a guest post by one of our prolific simfilers Vote4DJz, who now is referred to as ChloMoDJz.

After a long long time since the last update, we are here again to bring you some moar files from different artists and simfilers.


Break your fingers with this breakcore song Twirl by a Canadian electronic musician Venetian Snares that will challenge you because of its tricky gimmicks and some speedups that DefTeaMachine did. You are really good at making those gimmicks DTM.

The second song is another file by DefTeaMachine that is called Video Out E. This songs has a few slowdowns so be sure to watch your fingers not to be much faster and listen carefully to this piano, breakbeat song by Vospi. You can buy this song in the store for 150 StylePoints, it's worth it!


Oh mang, DefTeaMachine owns this post, because he has another file stepped with gimmicks (DTM likes to step gimmicks). Another Chaoz song by ParagonX9, Chaoz Twilight. This streamy song at 172 bpm will sure make your fingers tired.
