Dear World: What The Actual Fuck?

There is a lot going on lately. Yes, I have been working on new music and collaborations with other artists, and I will get to all that (If you were hoping to glean information about my music, continue reading beyond my angry message, coming up). But first, let’s talk about current events.

Covid-19 and the Poor Response To It By The United States, Worldwide Protests for Equal Rights, Wealthy People In Control of Government, Police Brutality, Murder Hornets, Increased Seismic Activity at the Yellowstone Site, Asteroids Buzzing The Earth, and let’s not forget Loosening Environmental Regulations To Line The Pockets Of The Wealthy (goes along with Wealthy People In Control of Government)…

This isn’t going to simply deflate. This will eventually pop.

Most of the blame can squarely be placed on the current “president” of the United States and his personal allies (not the allies of the United States, which I am hoping we can smooth those relations after we get rid of Orange #3). Oh, in case you were curious what my stance is on our current leadership:  Fuck trump. Fuck mCconnell. Fuck the lockstep, bootlicking republicans who protect Orange #3. Fuck the police whose fraternity protects the fascism that is rampant in their ranks. I’m sure there is more I could jam my dick in, but this covers a lot of the current holes I would currently like to see plugged.

In case you might be wondering: I don’t give a fuck if you decide you will not support my work because I am not “fascist-friendly”. Go fuck yourself to some Morrissey. Trust me when I say, I don’t make enough money from what I do to notice you will be gone, and your sudden shunning of my work will not take my synths, basses, or microphones away. I will continue to create music, and there is a good chance it will only become angrier and more vitriolic toward your stupid, fucking cause.




Now, onto the good stuff.

I just finished a collaboration with Finnish project, Tonttu. If you agree that gnomes are pure evil and are in control of everything that is wrong with this world, you will certainly enjoy this song. If you wish to learn more about what I just said, I implore you to search out Tonttu’s music collection. It is pure anti-gnome propaganda. Begin your journey, here:

Anyway, I created the music as a backdrop to a story told by Hannu Kulju (Tonttu’s vocalist and leader of the anti-gnome army) about how gnomes have taken over Hell. You can enjoy this tale by clicking on either of these links:




I have also been hard at work on the instrumental album, Puzzle Of Little Deaths; a three-part album, the first of which has been released on Bandcamp only, at this time. Well, the second-part of the album is now complete. The last two songs are in post production and will be released on Bandcamp along with the first part, very soon (Once all three parts are concluded, it will be sent to darkTunes for mass distribution and streaming). I will be starting work on the final part of the album right after I finish this:




Now that the second part of Puzzle of Little Deaths is complete, I will be turning my attention to a single I had intended to release a while ago, but got quite sidetracked. A song I had originally written for an event at a night club I dj at (BIG SHOUT TO BAR XIII in WILMINGTON, DELAWARE) needed some vocals reworked on the original mix. Oddly, the remix is ready to go. That sort of order never happens, to my knowledge, but it happened. Anyway, I will be getting to the vocal rework on a song titled, Dance of the Profane.

I have to admit, I’m a little concerned about the content of the song, as it hits kinda close to current events. The song is literally about dancing to the rhythm of the end of the world. It was created long before all the shit we see now ever went down.




Dance Of The Profane and Embrace The Entropy will both be on the next, full vocal album, which will receive my complete attention, once Puzzle is complete. I know a lot of people are looking forward to the next album. Just with these two songs, it is ramping up to be angrier and more volatile than Prelude, which was more akin to me saying howdy and introducing myself.




Stay safe, my friends. The world is kinda fucked right now, but that is what it takes to make things better, sometimes.

Much Love,



PS: You can find all of my music, including a couple of covers I cannot distribute through my label due to legal issues (And yes, I do have mechanical licenses for both covers, but mass distribution becomes messy, so I give them away for free exclusively, here) on my Bandcamp page:

Also, while you are at it, go visit darkTunes’ merchandise site and purchase stuff with my face on it. Let’s make it weird!

Puzzle Of Little Deaths: Part 600

Currently, I am offering a prerelease of my new album (in 3 parts- the first part is complete and available) only on Bandcamp. Once all three parts are complete, I will be submit the entire album to darkTunes for publication and distribution. You can now own it as it comes, before the rest of the world gets their chance!

Each part consists of 6 instrumental pieces of dark ambient industrial music; mood music, if you will. Each song leads into the next, telling a story only you will know and understand. Close your eyes and let the music illustrate the story within.

This is one third of an incomplete puzzle. Stay tuned, for Puzzle Of Little Deaths: Part 60! Once all three parts are complete, I will then put the entire puzzle together for you.


Part 600:

  1. Conditioned Response
  2. subSystem
  3. Coming In Threes
  4. Beat Reaction
  5. Shadows Of Reality
  6. SickSickSicks

Until Next Time..


2019 What’s Inside

First, let’s get to the news: January 3rd will be my first event of the year, and this time I am spinning alongside Philly’s own DJ Luna! I am looking forward to hearing what she brings to the table! This event will be at my home away from home: Bar XIII’s Asylum 13 in Wilmington, DE (9pm to 1am). I look forward to seeing my Delaware family for the first time this year!

Okay, so I have decided maybe it’s time for me to open up and give you a bit of me, personally. I hide behind humor (most of it, bad or inappropriate). I have suffered from a form of Major Depression all my life. I was diagnosed as dysthymic, when I was younger. To add to that, I was diagnosed late-in-life (6 years ago) with Asperger’s (Autism Spectrum). Unfortunately, not knowing I was autistic my whole life caused a lot of problems for me, when I was younger. These things shaped who I am, today. I did, in fact, open up a little bit about it, in the songs, What’s Inside, as well as Rain Behind Your Eyes. I suppose you could say, Happy is a song regarding how I feel during a meltdown, and Embrace The Entropy is the acceptance that everything falls apart, which is how a meltdown feels. In fact, Embrace was written right after a very serious meltdown that I would love to forget ever happened, but it will never go away, and nothing will ever change that.

Since being diagnosed, I have had people tell me that I seem to use my autism as an excuse and should really try to contain it and act normal. I do. It’s fucking exhausting. But I always do. It’s something that, long before my diagnosis, I was being told I needed to do. I’m used to people not really being comfortable with the real me. I am exhausting.

But it fuels my music. My hyperfocus is music (well, there are others, but we’ll not discuss those, at this time). This has, on occasion, been to my detriment. I will lose track of time and space, when I work with sound. I will forget to eat and sleep. I will forget to take care of basic needs for myself and those who rely on me.

While we’re on the subject, let’s talk a little bit about the autism meltdown. People talk about how bad it is to bottle shit up. I don’t know too many people on the spectrum who have a firm control over this. It is the one part of me that has always scared me. It is a monster I cannot control, except to sink into seclusion. Most of the time, I am in my music studio. Most of the time, I sleep there. It keeps the monster away from everyone.

I say it scares me. It does. But there is the dark, raspy voice in the back of my head, telling me “You can tell the whole world how much you hate me, but you can’t lie to me. You can’t lie to yourself. You love me.” And I do. It feels good to meltdown. It is uncontrollable anger. The lid comes off. The pressure releases. I black out. I remember bits and pieces, later, but most everything is relayed to me from someone I wish wouldn’t have been there for it. It is best that I stay away from those I love, sometimes.

The fucked up thing about being autistic and not knowing- growing up and not understanding why people treat you like both an alien and a target for their entertainment.But it’s that, which fuels my passion, as well. I have grown to understand that the world is full of assholes. It’s full of what people like to call “Normies”. They are the sheep. They are the status quo. They are one color- one tone- one sound… and while that sound, color, or tone may change over time to the beat of media, government, or whatever, it still remains the same, bland crap that has always infected humanity.


Let your freak flag fly. Don’t strive for status quo. Be you and fuck those who oppose.

Until next time,


Brutal Resonance Compilation, Upcoming Dates, And What’s Going On In The Studio

First on the agenda for this post:

Brutal Resonance has released another amazing compilation! I am happy to inform you that a new and previously unreleased DJversion666 song has made its way onto this collection of industrial music!

The song, Witches, originally made its debut at Bar XIII (Wilmington, DE) for a Wizard of Oz-themed Asylum 13 event. It is now being released for free (pay what you want) via Brutal Resonance, and very soon will be available on the DJversion666 Bandcamp page. This song will NOT be found on any upcoming albums. It will only be released as a single with the option of not having to pay a single penny (if you want to pay for it to show your support, I’m not going to say no, but it is otherwise free).

DJ events coming up in the month of May:

Thursday, May 3rd – Asylum 13 (Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE)

Saturday, May 12th – QXT’s (Newark, NJ)

Unfortunately, the Trenton event has been pulled, apparently due to a lack of interest in industrial and goth music in that area. I do understand Philly is right there, where the goth/industrial scene is strong.

Instead, I’m now looking for a place that will consider a goth/industrial night in Asbury Park (this place NEEDS a goth/industrial night, for so many reasons). Cross fingers. This WILL happen, but it needs to be the right place. Not just any place will do.


Recently finished a couple more songs for the upcoming album (By “finished”, I mean the music is done. Once the music is finished, I begin the task of writing lyrics). If there is an interest, I will start posting the occasional preview of new music.


Until next time.







A New Song By DJversion666? Yes!

Before I get into the details of the headline of this post, I would like to call attention to a couple of upcoming events you should know about and come get your goth/industrial groove on:

First, coming up immediately, this week:

We are bringing the goth and industrial to Trenton, NJ! There is no cover charge, so if you’re in the area and you enjoy your music dark and brooding, I’ll make that happen for you.

Also of note (and I will mention it again, in an upcoming post, I assure you), I will be djing for the first time at QXT’s in Newark, NJ! This event will happen Saturday, May 12th! I can’t possibly put into words exactly how excited I am about this! It’s my first time there, AND I will be on the main floor alongside DJ Q MindSolvent! Again, I will post more about this in an upcoming post for May.

So, yes- I am releasing a new song very soon. I wrote it this past Summer, for an event at Asylum 13 (Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE). It is inspired by the movie, The Wizard of Oz.  It will definitely be released on my Bandcamp page, and is being considered for an upcoming compilation. Keep your eyes on this page for more details, as they happen.


Until next time.

Much love,


The New Look

First of all, welcome! If you’ve never been to my website, please, look around! There are links to my music, dj mixes/sets, merchandise (t shirts, cds, etc), as well as up-to-date information on the latest goings on in the wonderful world of DJversion666 and friends.

If you’ve visited this domain before, you will notice that it is vastly different, thanks to my good friend, Tangent D. Noir of! He is doing amazing things for me, right now! As things happen, I will share the information with you. He has also taken the reigns on my Facebook page and has made several, amazing improvements I didn’t even know were possible! If you haven’t checked it out, yet, please do (while you’re there, you might as well go ahead and click that Like button). Thank you, Tangent! You are a blessing to the DIY artist community!

In business news (haha I never really wanted to say that, but it was more fun than I’d imagined, just now), I will be performing alongside DJ Killcrazy, once again, for the world-famous Asylum 13 at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE on Thursday, February 1st! I will be spinning at Champ’s in Trenton, NJ for the very relatively new Goth Night Returns event on Friday, February 23rd! At these events, I will always have merchandise with me (T shirts, CDs, and stickers). If you’re too far away to attend any of my events, You can always purchase T shirts and CDs via Bandcamp, and of course, you can purchase CDs from and of course, there are all the major distribution sites and streaming sites available to you, for digital downloads and streaming, should you choose not to use Bandcamp. You can find links to those sites with some quick browsing around this site.

On a personal note, I am ecstatic to have received an awesome package from a good friend, yesterday! I was happy to find my new Aim & Execute T Shirt, along with my replacement Exemia T Shirt (my old one was on its last threads lol)

OH YEAH! I certainly don’t want to forget to mention an upcoming interview with the YouTube channel, KnowShitCast! I’m really looking forward to this, as it’s technically my first, official interview! Nervous? Of course! Excited? Also, yes!

Also, know I’ve got several songs on the burner, right now. Soon, you’ll be hearing some new material from your pessimistic pal, DJversion666, including a couple of songs I did specifically for a couple of events I’ve recently DJ’d for. I consider them more of a novelty, than anything, so I will be giving them away for free, as soon as they’re mastered and ready to go.

Also considering doing a couple of videos for my YouTube channel, but I may have to request the aid of my nine year old son to hold the camera (phone- don’t let me kid you. If I figure out a better way, I’ll do it). Since I’m one of the very few industrial/goth/electronic musicians who use Linux, there have been questions and curiosities about my work flow and the processes I go through to record the noise that makes sense to me. We’ll see how that goes, though. Once I get involved in recording, I tend to become oblivious to everything around me, so actually talking might be a bit of a challenge. lol

Until next time, keep doing what you’re doing, unless someone else is suffering for it (unless that is what that “someone” is into. I certainly do not judge).







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.




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.


Back In The Studio- All Guns Firing

New ideas are flowing- from the mind, to the fingertips, to the hard drive, to the ears- and eventually, to you.

I’m taking my time on this next album. Each song will be an entity unto itself.

Also, it is my esteemed pleasure to be joined on this project by vocalist/keyboardist, The Queen of Blasphemy!

Another dimension has been added.

Stay tuned!




Smiles! Re: Celestial Stage, August 20th

We had an incredible time, last night, at QXT’s! They were wonderful hosts. I cannot wait to perform there, again (and again and again and, well, you get the idea).

I made a lot of new friends, that night. If you dig deep, you’ll find a picture of me playing the Pokemon Go game with a great group of people who drove an hour away to see our show (I swear, I’m playing it for my son. QXT’s is a Pokestop. I’m sure you understand). Shout out to Patty, Derek, and the rest of the crew! You guys are awesome!

It is an honor to have opened for Kosmic Daydream and GHyp:See & The Wichts! There is some great music coming from these bands! If you ever get a chance, definitely check them out. The Wichts’ bassist, Samuel Elijah James IV, is bangin’ it out on a six string with a tremolo- from one bassist to another, I salute you!

I cannot thank everybody enough for the awesome time we had!

Embrace The Entropy

The first song has officially been recorded for the next album (title TBA)! I would like to thank Exemia (Fabian Morales) for his incredible post-production work, as well as the brilliant guitar tracks! I would also like to thank QXT’s in Newark (Especially DJ Victrola!) for all their support and love! I am truly honored to have my music played in such a well-known and wonderful nightclub!

Embrace The Entropy is currently only available for streaming. It will be available for download, shortly (courtesy of darkTunes Music Group).

Embrace The Entropy will also be found on an upcoming CIA Special Forces compilation CD!

Several radio stations already have their hands on this song and have promised to give it so airwave love!

Currently, there are several incredible artists working on remixes of this song. I am really looking forward to hearing their work!

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!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!




MADNESS III Masquerade Ball At Bar 13 (formerly Mojo 13), Wilmington, DE Halloween Night!

This is going to be an incredible event! I’m going to be spinning tunes between live performances from Ego Likeness, Mindless Faith, Die Sektor, and The Rain Within, as well as the Noiseferatu performance by members of Angelspit, The Gothsicles, and The Dead Room (live music/sound set to the silent movie, Nosferatu)!

Halloween at Mojo 13 2015


This event coincides with this website,, becoming viewable to the public AND the re-release of the album, PRELUDE, courtesy of darkTunes Music Group!

When I think this day can’t possibly get bigger, it grows!

I hope to see everyone there!
