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

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

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.
