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

Prelude Reviews From Around The World

“DJversion666’s new album PRELUDE is a great dose of dark ambiance. Dangerous and eerie music with it’s roots firmly planted in old school industrial. Great stuff!”– Zoog Von Rock, Angelspit

“liked the album a lot, im pumped for that release, i think he could really make waves…really fuckin talented and you (Exemia) helping him with his production brings it to a whole other level” -Audiocentesis

“So much quality and aggressive!” -2Bullet

“This guy is epic xD this is a really good album i also like your (Exemia) mastering, it feels really good, like some old school industrial” -Megrim

“the sound is really professional, i like the drums too wow happy’s intro sounds really cool! there’s some 90’s nin groove in there, his rockish/angrier vox reminds me of trent well, this is definitely industrial, this project could become really big. there’s something that could attract many people in my opinion they sound really finished, sounds very professional and well-though great sampling and melodically interesting also the atmosphere is there. and it changes from gothic to something a bit surrealistic or psychedelic sometimes well i’m happy that i had a chance to listen to this album this early wow, what an ending track to album. surpirisngly good release. really interesting to see how people will react, i think it has potential to go big” -Cellhavoc

Tangent D. Noir (TheXFactory.com) Review of Prelude:

“I was sent an album written by one of our group members Bri Stewart (aka: DJversion666) and given the directive to “test” it for flaws. Well honestly, it’s really hard to test an album for flaws when you realize that every time you listen to the album it gets better. I’ve listened to this pre-release all the way through, seriously, 20 or more times. Here are my thoughts track by track;

TRACK 01 “Pushing Through It All”
The first song as an instrumental is so very important to the enjoyment of this album. It opens up the part of your brain which translates audio information in to information that you will need. It completely gets you in the mindset to listen to what comes next; and, I love the soft piano towards the end.

TRACK 02 “What’s Inside”
In my opinion, this is the most “stompy” track on the album. It’s almost pre-dance industrial but it holds on to an old school electronic industrial feel some how. Once your body gets moving to this you’ll understand just how important all of these elements are.

TRACK 03 “Happy”
Heavy hitting and gritty. If you like old school dance industrial, you’re probably going to break your hip dancing to this track. This song seems to be designed to snap you out of your false sense of reality using sarcasm as it’s chosen mode of delivering it’s message.

TRACK 04 “Goodbye World”
This song starts off like a determined steam engine with a vendetta. It slowly chugs along in the night with no intension of stopping. The effects and sounds seriously add to this imagery for me. There’s also a slowed down pre-chorus and a killer coda that’s just freakin’ inspired. Great audio imagery. Gets better every time I listen to it.

TRACK 05 “Where Is Your God Now”
I love the idea that this track could have very easily become an EBM tune in the beginning. Despite the heavy industrial feel of this song – which is always good, I can actually see it becoming popular with the EBM heads who like heavy grit in their tunes. This is yet another one of those songs that sneaks up on you and gets better every time you listen to it.

TRACK 06 “Valentine”
This is currently my favorite song on the album. This song is as close to true industrial as you’re going to get today. It’s filled with irony without having a single word written. It’s just freakin’ beautiful. The leads during the coda will blow your mind. It takes me back to the days of my listening to the bands “Yellow” and “The Art of Noise”. You will always wish this song was longer; because, it’s that good.

TRACK 07 “Malevolent Introspection”
The vocals sound very 80’s influenced – always a plus with me. You will love the arpeggiated bass line. If you don’t, I’m inclined to think that something may be wrong with the way you live your life. Ha.. Ha..

TRACK 08 “Lessons in Chaos”
This is my second favorite song on the album. It sounds so good loud. It pounds it’s way through your chest. Very very industrial in my opinion; but, borrows from classic rock to make it’s point even stronger. I so love the time fluctuations of a rhythmic melody which happens through out the song. Very very bad ass. Again, this takes me back to the days of listening to the bands “Yellow” and “The Art of Noise”.

TRACK 09 “Future Gods”
Probably the most chill statement about reality you’ll ever here. Tells you like it is while making you feel relaxed about the fact that we as humans are important yet meaningless at the same time.

TRACK 10 “Human Race to the Finish”
Once this song kicked in, it really got my heart going. Great industrial metal feel with a hint of punk with a very cool mini guitar solo that you’ll never really see coming each time you listen to it.

TRACK 11 “Rain Behind Your Eyes”
This is my third favorite track on the album. The vocals are laced with what I call the “Bowie Factor”(all hail David Bowie). Very slow thought provoking tempo; and, it has an almost sinister nostalgia to it.

TRACK 12 “Goodbye World [*bonus track]”
Very good remix of the original “Goodbye World” track. It has all of what you would expect from a dance industrial hit. This edit will set the dance floor on fire!!! I don’t know if Bri plans on adding this track as a “hidden” track on the CD or not. If so, all I can say is that a good day will be had when purchasers of this CD bump in to this track.

My official summary is that this is “an album to bond with”. Which simply means, that you’ll want to listen to it from beginning to end whenever you hear any single song from the album.”
