Brutal Resonance Compilation, Upcoming Dates, And What’s Going On In The Studio

First on the agenda for this post:

Brutal Resonance has released another amazing compilation! I am happy to inform you that a new and previously unreleased DJversion666 song has made its way onto this collection of industrial music!

The song, Witches, originally made its debut at Bar XIII (Wilmington, DE) for a Wizard of Oz-themed Asylum 13 event. It is now being released for free (pay what you want) via Brutal Resonance, and very soon will be available on the DJversion666 Bandcamp page. This song will NOT be found on any upcoming albums. It will only be released as a single with the option of not having to pay a single penny (if you want to pay for it to show your support, I’m not going to say no, but it is otherwise free).

DJ events coming up in the month of May:

Thursday, May 3rd – Asylum 13 (Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE)

Saturday, May 12th – QXT’s (Newark, NJ)

Unfortunately, the Trenton event has been pulled, apparently due to a lack of interest in industrial and goth music in that area. I do understand Philly is right there, where the goth/industrial scene is strong.

Instead, I’m now looking for a place that will consider a goth/industrial night in Asbury Park (this place NEEDS a goth/industrial night, for so many reasons). Cross fingers. This WILL happen, but it needs to be the right place. Not just any place will do.

 

Recently finished a couple more songs for the upcoming album (By “finished”, I mean the music is done. Once the music is finished, I begin the task of writing lyrics). If there is an interest, I will start posting the occasional preview of new music.

 

Until next time.

 

Yours,

DJversion666

 

 

 

A New Song By DJversion666? Yes!

Before I get into the details of the headline of this post, I would like to call attention to a couple of upcoming events you should know about and come get your goth/industrial groove on:

First, coming up immediately, this week:

We are bringing the goth and industrial to Trenton, NJ! There is no cover charge, so if you’re in the area and you enjoy your music dark and brooding, I’ll make that happen for you.

Also of note (and I will mention it again, in an upcoming post, I assure you), I will be djing for the first time at QXT’s in Newark, NJ! This event will happen Saturday, May 12th! I can’t possibly put into words exactly how excited I am about this! It’s my first time there, AND I will be on the main floor alongside DJ Q MindSolvent! Again, I will post more about this in an upcoming post for May.

So, yes- I am releasing a new song very soon. I wrote it this past Summer, for an event at Asylum 13 (Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE). It is inspired by the movie, The Wizard of Oz.  It will definitely be released on my Bandcamp page, and is being considered for an upcoming compilation. Keep your eyes on this page for more details, as they happen.

 

Until next time.

Much love,

DJversion666

Coming Up In April

I would just like to put this here, for a moment:

That’s right! Grendel, Aesthetic Perfection, and Peter Turns Pirate will be at Bar XIII in Wilmington, NJ on Thursday, April 5th! I am excited and honored to be a part of this, as I will be spinning between band sets, this evening!

Thursday, April 12th, I will be spinning all things goth, EBM, dark, and industrial once again at Champ’s in Trenton! Come out and help us establish this as Trenton’s dark scene!

Goth Night Returns!

On a personal note, I have to admit to everyone I’ve been going through a bit of depression over the past couple of months, which has put a severe damper on my creative process. It seemed to have hit me, some time while I was afflicted with that damn flu that was killing people. I feel I may be finally pulling through that and will be back in the studio, putting my thoughts to sound. Understand, I’m not at all seeking sympathy. My depression, my aspergers, my every, little mental dent and ding fuels my creative process. This is a part of it.

While I despise these feelings, I embrace them for what they do for my creative vehicles.

 

Until next update,

Love.

The New Look

First of all, welcome! If you’ve never been to my website, please, look around! There are links to my music, dj mixes/sets, merchandise (t shirts, cds, etc), as well as up-to-date information on the latest goings on in the wonderful world of DJversion666 and friends.

If you’ve visited this domain before, you will notice that it is vastly different, thanks to my good friend, Tangent D. Noir of TheXFactory.com! He is doing amazing things for me, right now! As things happen, I will share the information with you. He has also taken the reigns on my Facebook page and has made several, amazing improvements I didn’t even know were possible! If you haven’t checked it out, yet, please do (while you’re there, you might as well go ahead and click that Like button). Thank you, Tangent! You are a blessing to the DIY artist community!

In business news (haha I never really wanted to say that, but it was more fun than I’d imagined, just now), I will be performing alongside DJ Killcrazy, once again, for the world-famous Asylum 13 at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE on Thursday, February 1st! I will be spinning at Champ’s in Trenton, NJ for the very relatively new Goth Night Returns event on Friday, February 23rd! At these events, I will always have merchandise with me (T shirts, CDs, and stickers). If you’re too far away to attend any of my events, You can always purchase T shirts and CDs via Bandcamp, and of course, you can purchase CDs from http://www.dsbp.cx/ and of course, there are all the major distribution sites and streaming sites available to you, for digital downloads and streaming, should you choose not to use Bandcamp. You can find links to those sites with some quick browsing around this site.

On a personal note, I am ecstatic to have received an awesome package from a good friend, yesterday! I was happy to find my new Aim & Execute T Shirt, along with my replacement Exemia T Shirt (my old one was on its last threads lol)

OH YEAH! I certainly don’t want to forget to mention an upcoming interview with the YouTube channel, KnowShitCast! I’m really looking forward to this, as it’s technically my first, official interview! Nervous? Of course! Excited? Also, yes!

Also, know I’ve got several songs on the burner, right now. Soon, you’ll be hearing some new material from your pessimistic pal, DJversion666, including a couple of songs I did specifically for a couple of events I’ve recently DJ’d for. I consider them more of a novelty, than anything, so I will be giving them away for free, as soon as they’re mastered and ready to go.

Also considering doing a couple of videos for my YouTube channel, but I may have to request the aid of my nine year old son to hold the camera (phone- don’t let me kid you. If I figure out a better way, I’ll do it). Since I’m one of the very few industrial/goth/electronic musicians who use Linux, there have been questions and curiosities about my work flow and the processes I go through to record the noise that makes sense to me. We’ll see how that goes, though. Once I get involved in recording, I tend to become oblivious to everything around me, so actually talking might be a bit of a challenge. lol

Until next time, keep doing what you’re doing, unless someone else is suffering for it (unless that is what that “someone” is into. I certainly do not judge).

 

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

 

 

I Would Like To Share Everything I’m Doing With You, Right Now

And that is very difficult to do.

Yes, I have a couple of events I’ll be spinning tunes for:  Notably, the Goth Dance Party (appropriately, on Black Friday, November 24th), in Trenton, NJ at Champ’s (https://www.facebook.com/events/185411258674088/) and Asylum 13 in Wilmington, DE at Bar XIII on December 7th (https://www.facebook.com/asylum13/photos/rpp.138195462940572/1015735548519888/?type=3&theater)

Musically, I’m still diligently putting my next album together. I’ve got several songs going on at the same time.

I’m also trying to get an Xmas song done in time for a compilation cd. I’m going to make it an instrumental, and I’m choosing a song that is in the public domain, so no headaches.

I will admit that I am in dire need of someone who would be willing to help me with keeping this website updated, etc. Doing it all, myself, is becoming too much, as I’m trying to focus on writing music. Granted, I can’t pay. I am willing to pay in the form of merchandise and high-pitched, girlish laughter (if that is what you’re truly interested in).  If you would like to consider this position for yourself, you can email me at Brian.Stewart@DJversion666.com and we will discuss your lucrative (or whatever) career as my e-ssistant.

Other than that, I’ve got a couple of remixes I’m considering doing, if I can find that extra time I hear so much about. I know there is more going on, but my mind is so scattered at the moment, it’s a small wonder I am able to put this post together.

Hopefully, my next post won’t seem so scattered.

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

 

The Month of October- Or, This Is THE Month

Happy Halloween Month!

Savor every fucking day, this month, as every moment is a worthy moment- and with a little effort, a worthy moment can become a spooky moment! -PSA

There is a lot going on, this month:

Thursday, October 5th, I’m spinning alongside Project Two during the Asylum 13 event, which will be a Twisted Wizard of Oz theme! This, of course, goes on at Bar XIII in Wilmington, Delaware. If you’re interested, the party starts at 9pm and we take it down the Yellow Brick Road until 1am. It’s a theme party, so get your flying monkey suit and join in the fun!

As stated, this is a themed event, and Project Two, Exemia, and myself decided to do something very different and produce original songs inspired by the Wizard of Oz! Those songs will premiere, that night!

Saturday, October 21st, I will be stepping foot and plugging in for the first time in Allentown, PA at The Stonewall for the monthly Reset Society event! I’m am both nervous and excited to be here, this night! The party starts at 10pm and goes until 2am!

Friday, October 27th, I will be giving you my spookiest at Champ’s in Trenton, NJ as they host their Goth/Industrial Halloween Party! Come in costume, because that’s what you do at a Halloween Party! The party will be from 9pm until 1am!

Also, I want to mention, the Iron Garden is hosting their Halloween Party at QXT’s in Newark, NJ and one of the prizes will involve a DJversion666 PRELUDE cd and t-shirt! I was also asked to judge the costume contest they will be having, but their party is the same night as the Halloween Party at Champ’s. I had to politely decline. I am honored that they had asked! Best wishes to all involved in the Iron Garden event! I can truly say, I will definitely be there in spirit!

Also, I wanted to thank Tangent D. Noir and TheXFactory.com (website and social media) for their continued support of the DJversion666 brand! This man has accomplished (and continues to do so) superhero-like feats in order to make things happen! I truly cannot thank him enough for everything he does!

Another person I can’t thank enough for everything is Fabian Morales, otherwise known as Exemia! He continues to make my music absolutely magical! He is an incredible talent! If you have never heard his work, I suggest you google Exemia, AND Aim&Execute (a collaboration between himself and Audiocentesis)! The man is a genius!

Finally, I want to thank my family. I know I push myself, and you have to put up with my craziness. Life is about doing and being. Thank you for letting me do me. I hope to only make you proud.

That is all the news for this month. I have a couple of events already booked for next month, and am hoping to book one or two more, but I’ll talk more on those in a future post.

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

Busy, Busy, Busy

There are so many things to catch you up on, I’m not even sure where to begin!

Let’s start with the TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the DJversion666.COM WEBSITE! To celebrate (and to try and pay some bills, because bills), I am pointing out an exclusive offer you can’t find anywhere else and that would be my entire collection for the low, low price of $10.40 (US) for the DJversion666 Digital Collection! You can get it, here: Click Here and Scroll Down for the Special Price!

Coming up at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE, Thursday, September 7th, Asylum 13 will be presenting a Twisted Wizard of Oz theme night! That’s right- dark dance, ebm, industrial with a hint of everything Yellow Brick Road! For this event, I am writing an original song inspired by the classic movie! After the event, I will be providing a link to give the song away for free 🙂

Speaking of:  The aforementioned song inspired by the Wizard of Oz is being written and produced within my new DAW. I have retired EnergyXT and have migrated to Ardour. I won’t go into details here, but suffice it to say, EnergyXT was not able to keep up with my demands. Ardour fits my needs like a glove. I think you’re going to like what will be coming from me, soon. 🙂

Stay tuned keep supporting independent artists. We do it because we love it.

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

More Apologies From The Heart

Here I am, still not updating as often as I’d like to. Please accept my most sincere apology, as we move forward.

Of note in the realm of DJversion666:

I’m getting my own reality series! Just kidding. Fuck no.

I am working on several songs at the same time. I work on a little at a time with each of them. Which one I work on is entirely dependent upon my mood. There are a couple of very interesting ideas, I’m kicking around. I can’t divulge anything, yet. Nothing is set in stone.

Of extra special note: The first Thursday of each month, Project Two and myself take turns spinning the dark electronic tunes in Wilmington, Delaware’s Bar XIII for Asylum 13. As of May (The 4th), we began doing theme nights. Yes, it was a Star Wars theme night! Project two and I had some fun that night. I admit, I love Star Wars. Most people could guess what song got played, that evening.

Thursday, June 1st will be The Matrix theme.

Bar 13 Matrix Style Thursday June 1st 2017

Follow the white rabbit.

Take the red pill.

one more…

There is no spoon.

 

MADNESS III Masquerade Ball At Bar 13 (formerly Mojo 13), Wilmington, DE Halloween Night!

This is going to be an incredible event! I’m going to be spinning tunes between live performances from Ego Likeness, Mindless Faith, Die Sektor, and The Rain Within, as well as the Noiseferatu performance by members of Angelspit, The Gothsicles, and The Dead Room (live music/sound set to the silent movie, Nosferatu)!

Halloween at Mojo 13 2015

 

This event coincides with this website, djversion666.com, becoming viewable to the public AND the re-release of the album, PRELUDE, courtesy of darkTunes Music Group!

When I think this day can’t possibly get bigger, it grows!

I hope to see everyone there!

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

DJing At Mojo 13, September 26th

I’m really looking forward to spinning, once again, at Mojo 13! It’s always a blast- the music, the people, the drinks, that atmosphere, though…

September 26th of 2015 is going to be taken up a few notches, as Justin Symbol (to which, I say, “fuck yeah!”) and Generation Empty (which is owed another, “fuck yeah!”) hammer the ears and everything in between, and DJ Richard Reich and I spin music that evening.

Oh, and did I mention it’s a theme party? That’s right- the theme for the evening is blasphemy, sacrilege, debauchery, and everything sinful.

Apparently, Pope Francis is set to hold Mass in Philadelphia that day. http://www.popefrancisvisit.com/schedule/mass-cathedral-basilica-sts-peter-paul-philadelphia/  We’re going to be thirty minutes away, later that evening, making things right once again.

Asylum 13 Blasphemous Sept 26 2015

I hope I see everyone here, doing what we as humans do best.

 

Sincerely Sinister,
