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

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. 😀 ). 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

 

 

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.

 

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

DJ Strykknine & DJversion666 At Bar XIII’s ASYLUM 13, This Thursday (Dec 1st)

Asylum 13 DJv666 and DJ Strykknine

Evan and I have been talking about spinning together for a while now. It’s finally about to happen, and it shall be glorious.

If you live anywhere on the East Coast, this is the place to be Thursday night. We are going to bring the dark electronic sounds you know and love (and a few you will be happy to hear for the first time).

We look forward to seeing you there.

Bringing In The New Year (2016) Right

Well, I would love to say that it will be hard to beat the awesomeness that was 2015, but I can’t. Don’t get me wrong- 2015 was the year that really put the DJversion666 project into high gear. Exemia dusted me off and put me back where I’m supposed to be, musically. QXT’s in Newark, New Jersey, hosted my cd release party, when I had released it independently. A couple months later, I signed with darkTunes Music Group. Throughout all of last year, I’d been a guest dj a number of times at Bar XIII (formerly Mojo 13) in Wilmington, Delaware. I have met some outstanding human beings throughout this past year. It has been an amazing ride, thus far.

2016- I am the first featured artist of the year, on the Batbox Music E-Zine http://www.batboxmusic.com/#!january-feature-band-djversion666/c1vrx!

In a couple more months, the band will be ready to take the chains off and give you the best performance possible. Expect to see us at QXT’s, Bar XIII, and The Brighton Bar in Longbranch, New Jersey, shortly after we say “go”.

January of 2016 will also usher in two more compilations- One from Intravenous Magazine:  Blood Pack Volume 3, and one from darkTunes:  Gothic Music Orgy Volume 2.

I will also be starting work on the next album, in 2016. My first album revolved around depression, self-loathing, and anger- all great emotions that feel really good to get out and put to music. Expect to dive deeper into my mind on the next album.

On that note, I would like to welcome everyone to the new year!

 

Sincerely,

DJversion666
