Once again, I find myself apologizing for my absence on my own website. I’ve been hacking away at the instrumental album, which will be titled Puzzle Of Little Deaths. I’m currently well into the 6th song on the album. This album is going to be filled with all kinds of musical easter eggs and other secretive goodness, it will be interesting to see who pays attention. The puzzle is not just part of the title.
Also in DJversion666 news: Since the beginning of signing with darkTunes, I have not collected my royalty checks, as they haven’t been enough to really worry about. To explain this: People rarely purchase music, anymore, as you probably already know. Instead, they stream music through Spotify and the like. These streaming sites pay very little (think: .0050 cents a play, give or take). It takes literally thousands of streams to make a couple of bucks. This keeps the struggling artist struggling. I used to joke about being able to afford a large cappuccino every six months with the amount of money I make from royalties. Well, that went up substantially (again, think: .0050 cents a play, give or take) and I can now afford a crunchy biscotti in which to dip into my caffeinated beverage! I have started claiming my royalties now, and I have you all to thank for it!
Speaking of darkTunes: The upcoming and as of yet unannounced Gothic Music Orgy will have Exemia’s remix of an as-of-yet unreleased song of mine that will be appearing on the upcoming vocal album (as opposed to the previously mentioned instrumental album, Puzzle Of Little Deaths). The song is entitled, Dance of the Profane. The original was played, once, at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE. The vocal album it will be appearing on will be titled, An Entire Case Of Undetonated F-Bombs.
Speaking of Bar XIII: I will be spinning alongside DJ Tyler SinDrome, at Asylum 13, June 6th! This is going to be a crazy evening! Something tells me, however, we will not be sponsored by MyPillow.com. I can’t say we really tried, but it was an entertaining thought, at the time. For those of you who don’t know about our fascination with MyPillow.com, it’s probably for the best that you remain in the dark. This show will be something you won’t want to miss! We are calling this event, Nyx vs Dark Angels. Nyx is usually the team of DJ Luna Pallida and myself. Dark Angels is DJ SinDrome’s event (he is the official DJ of the Dark Angels’ Burlesque Show). DJ Luna will be out town at this time. Yes, he is bringing dancers from his show. I will be spinning a few of my own songs into my mixes. This is a unique event. You will not get this, anywhere else! It is imperative you are at Bar XIII, June 6th!
Until next time…
