Introducing Jennifer Stewart

A few months ago my beautiful wife, Jennifer Stewart, had suggested that I listen to a song by a certain Damien Rice, called 9 Crimes.

 

Well, after hearing it, we decided to cover it and give it our own, special spin:

Jennifer did an amazing job! I look forward to working with her again, in the very near future!

Our cover can also be found on Soundcloud and ReverbNation, right now!

I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

Special thanks to Fabian Morelos (aka Exemia) for the incredible post-production!

 

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.

Prelude- Stream It!

 

Depression becomes music. Pushing Through It All is what it sounds like to overcome those feelings that kept me down for so long. Sometimes, words simply aren’t necessary.

Pushing Through It All (available for download)

 

The evolution of humans comes this. We’re not broken. We just think differently.

What’s Inside (available for download)

 

When a relationship goes sour, yet you’re trapped because the person you’re involved with threatens to inflict harm upon themselves.

Happy (available for download)

 

Originally, I wrote this song well over a decade ago. Exemia had professed an interest in the song. I asked if he’d be interested in collaborating on a remake of it. The rest is recent history.

It is a song about depression and hopelessness. This seems to be a running theme with me.

Goodbye World (DJversion666 and Exemia) (available for download)

 

To all the Fundamentalist assholes who sputter on about fire, brimstone, and God’s wrath. Specifically, I wrote this song in regards to Ken Ham, Ray Comfort, Kent and Eric Hovind, and the countless other liars and fear-mongers who prey on those who simply want to believe there is more to life than the bullshit we’ve been born into. Me- I am an atheist. When provoked, I become an antitheist. I can not put faith in something which can’t be proved- especially, some myth created by people who thought the earth was flat.

Where Is Your God Now? (available for download)

 

This song within a song is my homage to a song that started my dreams of becoming a performing musician.

Valentine (available for download)

 

Because I haven’t given you enough songs about self-loathing:

Malevolent Introspection (available for download)

 

Another instrumental- but wait! This one has an extra beat per measure! How the hell does one dance to this? However the hell you want to, my friend.

Lesson In Chaos (available for download)

 

We are here for a limited time, to do limited things. Our importance is ultimately overshadowed by our complete meaninglessness.

Perspective:  In 300,000 years, you’ll be bones in a museum, if you’re lucky. I don’t care who you are.

Future Gods (available for download)

 

There are a lot of politicians who would like to be remembered as “The One Who Pushed The Goddamn Button”. This song is dedicated to those assholes.

Human Race To The Finish (available for download)

 

Because of the way my mind works, I get caught up in myself, inadvertently pushing aside everyone and everything I love. This song is dedicated to my wife and son. Thank you for putting up with my bullshit.

Rain Behind Your Eyes (available for download)

 

This was all Exemia! He made quick work of this remix, which came out with this incredible work of art which appeared on darkTunes’ Gothic Music Orgy compilation CD.

(Exemia Remix) Goodbye World [darkTunes Mix] (bonus) (available for download)

 

 

as an extended bonus, here are other songs not found on the Prelude album:

Nights In White Satin (Moody Blues cover) (available for download)

 

Instrumental- The music feels as if it’s nearly about to break open and go crazy, but it hides behind a serenity, as if it’s trying to cover up its true emotions.

Sanity Between Whispers

 

Instrumental- I wrote this song the day I decided I’d had enough of my hiding from myself, musically.

Reborn

 

Instrumental- This is my idea of scribbling something down on a napkin and telling myself, “I’m going to do something with this, one day. It will be glorious!”

The Artifice Of War (beta)

 

Instrumental- This was the scribble that became Malevolent Introspection on Prelude.

Malevolent Introspection (beta)

 

The next three instrumentals are so old, I seriously doubt I’ll ever actually do anything with them, but I give them to you anyway, because why the fuck not? The quality is absolute crap, but if you can overlook that, you might find some very intricate parts winding through these songs.

Birds Vs Bees originally had lyrics. I was lucky enough to have lost them. They sucked.
