I DJ tonight at Sameheads in Berlin, Germany! Playing after 1AM. Now booking gigs in Europe! Link in sidebar.

 

Hey y’all. It’s been a while with lots has happening this year, hence the lack of updates.

In July I released the Delere Mix that I recorded over air & sea between June and July, finally finishing it in Berlin. Mix photo was taken from the plane over Greenland. Featuring Vactor, Perseus Traxx, Aurora Halal, Glacial Communications, Vereker and more! Check it below:

Farced (which turns 8 on September 22!) is now also a show on Berlin Community Radio!  Check the nice words about me, this trusty blog & the concept behind the show written by Thomas Painter.

Happy New Year, everyone! Ecstatic to announce the first mix of 2014 which was a guest mix for the show Earthly Matters on Glasgow’s freeform Subcity Radio. It aired Monday, January 27, 2014. You can stream it here including Gareth’s awesome selections before and after my mix, with his introduction starting at the 24 minute mark.  Being asked to make a mix of music that I wouldn’t normally DJ out and from the recesses of my collection, it’s another broad mix but unlike any other. Starting off with “Concentration” by then-12 year old wunderkind Chandra followed by Rogelio Ramos’ Agressiva demo of “Lovepig,” it leads you into a world where there are several themes going, if you’re paying close enough attention to notice. A Flaming Tunes favorite and Maria Chavez‘s remarkable “Medici” from her Topography of Sound series brings the cessation of the nearly 90 minute mix.  

The name Querencia came after many chats with my cousin while recovering from surgery,  whom I have now dubbed my “cosmic cousin.” It correlates with what is going on in my life and coincidentally this mix. 

“Sybil has been running the blog Farced since 2006. Regularly updated with glimpses into her life living in New York as well as other ephemera, it is her excellent skill as a curator and the frequent mixes that she posts on the blog that noticeably attract attention.

Although her selections tend to explore the sounds of minimal synth, post-punk, industrial, noise and experimental music it certainly isn’t the only reflection of her tastes. She will be reaching into the deepest recesses of her record collection for the mix that she has kindly put together for Earthly Matters, entitled “Querencia”.

For any of you who may be unfamiliar with her, she has hosted Veronica Vasicka’s Minimal Wave show on East Village Radio on a number of occasions and was also commonly seen playing at the excellent Wierd Records club night which sadly finished at the end of February, 2013.”

If you’d like to have me do a guest mix, feel free to email me. Plotting some exciting projects that will be announced soon. Long live Farced!

For those of you still reading after these SEVEN years, despite massive lack of updates:

I finally made business cards DIY style, after three years on my to do list! Maybe a minimal site revamp is in order:

Found a recording of a DJ Set from a King Dude show at WIERD in April 2012, which made me miss the glory that was making people dance in the fog til 3:30am. An amazing feat in itself when you have Nikki Sneakers providing refilled pint sized glasses of margaritas or whatever it was. I miss WIERD.

Soon I’ll finally make a list of all Wierd & Minimal Wave (EVR) shows I’ve DJed. This year marks 10 years since my friend suggested I become a DJ because I had “good taste.” We played bi-weekly at The Hole (next to Mars Bar, if you lived in NYC 10 years ago, you know). I feel it’s only right to try to start cataloguing as much as I can about what I’ve done the past 10 years. Thankfully Farced has serendipitously provided plenty of material on here for the 3 years I quit DJing (2007-2010).  I’ll always be mixin’  selectin’.

Follow Farced on facebook & twitter (or maybe even Instagram!).

Here’s a mix I recorded for the monthly Rituals party which has just recently moved to The Loft after the shit show at the old K&M. I will be DJing the show on Friday, April 22nd sharing the decks again with Frankie Teardrop (Systems of a Romance) & Glenn Maryansky (Tiers & Cult of Youth).

Scotty wrote an apt description for this mix:

RITUALS MIX022 arrives courtesy of Sybil Jason, who will be DJing for us later this month when Kontravoid and Rosa Apatrida descend upon you all.

You may be familiar with Sybil from her stints DJing at Wierd (VRIP) or her contributions to the Minimal Wave program on East Village Radio. Sybil also co-hosts the Pleasure Discipline party, which if you’ve attended should provide a glimpse into what you’re about to encounter.

What you’ll find here is a bizarre, schizophrenic potpourri of songs. Sybil treats the listener’s sensibilities like a mad puppeteer; leading you in one direction before jerking you in another altogether. It makes sense somehow, which may be the weirdest aspect of it all. Enjoy the beautiful whiplash.

The whiplash that is what it sounds like in my brain at all times, with clicks and glitches…. really just a typical Farced mix.

Tracklist:

1. Killing Joke – Europe
2. Cinema – Cinema Star
3. Martial Canterel – Listener Dead
4. Skinny Puppy – Church
5. Throbbing Gristle – Dreammachine
6. Honey Bane – Boring Conversations
7. Wirtschaftswunder – Analphabet
8. Videoclips – Husky
9. Severed Heads – Casey’s Ion
10. Videosex – Ana
11. Near Paris – Visions
12. Aus Decline – She Gave Me Algedy
13. Experimental Products – The Addict
14. Nuit Des Stars – Plan Actuel
15. Pharmakon – Crawling on Bruised Knees
16. Faded Image – Insanity

Come out, should be a good show and enjoy this mix. I enjoyed recording it thousands of feet in the air en route to LAX.

 

Katie & me are back at it again as Pleasure Discipline  after a 6 month hiatus. Come by Daddy’s (Brooklyn) and hang with your fave female DJ DUO!

Tonight at Wierd (Wednesday) I will be DJing along with Miz Margo & Frankie Teardrop while Rosenkopf play after midnight! Pretty excited for this show and stoked to finally see Rosenkopf live. Demo for “Burning Spirits” included with this entry. I hear they’re phenomenal live, wouldn’t expect anything less, especially with the Antisect reference in the artwork above. Come out if in NYC!

BURNING SPIRITS (LP Version) by RØSENKØPF
As an added bonus, I’ve included Di6’s REMASTERED version of “Carousel” as I will be playing this tonight. I have been waiting forever for a REMASTERED cut of this amazing song, as recently issued with the NADA! Plus reissue.

Hello friends and readers!

Brent finally got his mixtape, five days after I sent it. It’s gotten quite the amount of play over on soundcloud & great feedback from friends and strangers alike. Now I can post the artwork and tracklist for those wondering ears:

Side A:

Death in June – Foretold
Opera Multi Steel – Jardin Botanique
Neud Photo – Comrades of Time
P1E – 49 Second Romance
Klinik – Memories
Severed Heads – Legion
Scorpion Violente – Viol et Revanche
November Group – Night Architecture
Nightmoves – Transdance
Asmodi Bizarr – Dorian
Marilyn and the Moviestars – So Disgraceful
Teai Benet – 2:00 Love

Side B:
Robert Turman – Lotek
Victrola – The Mutant Glow
Led Er Est – Madi La Lune
Moev – Rotting Geraniums
Orbidoig – Nocturnal Operations
Lifetones – Good Side
Klinik – Melting Close
Ryuichi Sakamoto – The Garden of Poppies
Skinny Puppy – Solvent
Strange Devotion – Danger Line

Gratuitous Klinik because this tape was made for (up until earlier this year) the only person I knew as obsessed with Klinik as I. If you have heard me DJ a lot (AKA if you run in the same circle as me or are a friend) you’ve probably heard me play a lot of these songs. This was meant to be a taste of what a DJ set would be like for Brent, who is on the other side of the country & never gets to see me DJ. As mentioned in the last post this was the first live-mixed mixtape I’ve done with quite a few more to come! And as also mentioned in that post, I plan to live mix every single Farced mix from the past five years! I did say I’d start off with the Ohne Titel mix but after recently revisiting the Paramnesia Mix from 9/26/07, I’ve decided to start with that. Right click to download and save the mp3 of Melting Close.
