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

What Am I Up To?

Once again, here I am with a sporadic update of things going on in the world of DJversion666:

I will be djing at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE on July 6th! I love this place! Once a month, I travel from the dirty Jersey shored to this amazing bar just 30 minutes south of Philadelphia; the first Thursday of each, to be exact. We’ve started doing themed events, within the past few months. The first was a Star Wars theme, thrown at us at the last minute, putting the creative part of the brain into a higher gear. Thankfully, Klayton of Celldweller and Circle Of Dust fame has done a tremendous job of paying electronic homage to the Star Wars franchise. Amazon had the single available for a few bucks, so it was a matter of downloading, listening, and, like any man with some alone-time, playing with it. I was ready. The most recent event was a Matrix theme. That was a great time! We picked several songs from the soundtrack and added that to our standard picks of EBM, Darkwave, and Industrial (with a pinch of EDM from Project Two, my usual partner in crime on the decks). This next event will be a Hackers theme (Hack The Planet, Mr. The Plague, etc); more great music from three, separate soundtracks! It’s sure to be a great time, once again. Project Two won’t be able to make it, this time, oddly, because of hackers (not the movie, but actual hackers. I can’t go into detail, because it’s not my place. …but, funny. ūüėÄ ). DJ KillCrazy will be joining me, this time. Together, we are taking down the Gibson, baby!

In the music realm, I am crazy busy. I’ve decided to shelf the idea of putting a band together for the live project. I’ve started focusing on studio work, once again. I have recently finished recording my vocals on an Aim&Execute (a collaborative project of Exemia and Audiocentesis) song titled Messiah Of My Doubt. It was recently released on the Terror Night Vol. 3 Mechanized Occultism¬†compilation cd!¬†That was an amazing experience. It gave me the kick I needed to start working on my own music. Currently, I have four or five songs put into motion. A few of them may not make it, but that is the nature of the beats. I am looking forward to finishing these, and many more, in the upcoming year.

The original Embrace The Entropy was also recently released on the June 2017 Brutal Resonance release; a compilation that is now being released once a month! …FOR FREE!!! (pay what you will- be cool and throw ’em a few bucks. Trust me when I say, they appreciate it). That’s it- with the exception of instrumentals and remixes, every one of my songs has been on (in some form or fashion) a compilation cd! Achievement Unlocked!

DSBP Discogs, founded by Tommy T. Rapisardi of Diverje fame, is being especially awesome! A short while back, they started carrying physical copies of the Prelude cd in their online store! That’s right- you can order physical cds from them! Tommy, who also hosts Cyberage Radio plays various songs from the album in the regular rotation! A lot of people are hearing my work, especially out West! I can’t thank him enough for all the help he’s provided on this incredible journey.

That is true of everyone who has helped me, thus far. The list is becoming the length of my first letter to Santa Claus. My next, full album will have a huge Special Thanks section!

Until next post:

Much love!

Sincerely,

DJversion666

 

 

2017!

I want to apologize, first, for not updating this site as often as I should. With my work schedule, it’s difficult to sit down and actually catch you up with the latest goings on and what-not.

Tonight (January 5th, 2017), I will be spinning alongside Project Two at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE. We’ll be pumping out the dark tunes for your stomping pleasure!

Also, tonight (at Midnight), darkTunes Music Group will be releasing my single, Embrace The Entropy, along with some seriously kick-ass remixes by Audiocentesis, Cutoff:Sky, Exemia, LaUD23, and Machines On Blast! This will be available through various distribution sites, such as iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play. I shall also have it available on Bandcamp, for those of you who prefer it.

Exemia and I just finished a remix for Totem Obscura (Acylum side project) which will be released via digital download AND physical media! I have to admit, I’m pretty damned excited about that!

Currently, I’m working on a remix for Machines On Blast, for the remix cd of the Tin Man Empire album!

Shortly after that, I will be working on another remix for Deophagy! They’re finishing up some tracks and putting together a remix kit, and then- it’s on!

After that, I will be getting back to work on the next DJversion666 album. I am hoping to have a full, decibel-packed album out and available by Halloween of this year. It’s not going to be easy, as my work schedule is crazy (bills won’t leave me alone, no matter how much I insist they give me a break), but I will make this happen!

I will be seeking to reform the live show, very soon. I miss being on the stage, screaming into a microphone. If you are a musician (especially if you live in Jersey, however, if you’re willing to travel we can work things out), and you’re interested in having some fun on stage, reach out to me at djversion666@thexfactory.com

That is all the news for now.

Stay tuned for more, as it happens.

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666

A Few Major Announcements

So much is going on, I’m not really sure where to begin!

I suppose, to start, I would like to say that we are excited and pleased to bring aboard Jennifer Stewart into the DJversion666 project! She is currently putting dozens of incredible things in motion. We are all looking forward to the vast number of elements she brings to the table!

Speaking of Jennifer- she and I are just finishing up a cover of an incredible song by Damien Rice, putting our own, special flavor to his song.

Things are going extremely well with the live project! We’re estimating being ready to launch by the end of April. A few venues have mentioned having us. As soon as we are officially ready, I will be reaching out to everyone. Stay tuned!

Another awesome announcement: ¬†I have been asked to cover a song by a German techno/industrial ¬†group for their upcoming tribute album! I don’t want to give too much away, at this time, but suffice it to say I am honored!

I am also looking forward to working with Edit/Erase! We’ve been talking about a collaboration or two for a while now. I believe it’s¬†about time we¬†make this happen!

It goes without saying, I am looking forward to working with the Master Of All Things Audio- The Man Behind The Mask- Fabian Morelos: ¬†Exemia! I know, he’s an extremely busy man, not only with his personal project but he also has this incredible collaboration with the guys from AudioCentesis, known as Aim & Execute (Remember. This. Name)! Know that great things are coming to your ears from this man!

The next DJversion666 album will be more than just me! Yes, I will still be writing the songs, the lyrics, and doing the arranging, but Nathan, Renee, Brian, Jennifer, and myself (along with everything Fabian brings) will be laying down some serious, fucking tracks! This album is going to bring everything we do to a whole, new level!

We are coming. It will be beautiful.
