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!

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.

I was supposed to have finished this “goth” mix for my friend Jessica F nearly two and a half years ago. Last night in my mixing roll, I finally got it done. I tried to keep it going with mostly lesser known dark sounds. Enjoy!

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

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.

If you like this mix you should check out the Doubt to Nothing mixtape (last year’s birthday mixtape for Brent).

Five years ago today, I made my first Farced blog post after installing wordpress onto srsly.tv. Thinking of things in five year increments is in part a bummer, perhaps due to the fact that it flies so fast! Leading to the inevitable thought of “what have I done in the past FIVE years?!” But this isn’t about me, it’s about this dear little blog that I have held on to for a lustrum. In celebration of this event, I planned to post the mixtape I sent Brent for his birthday on Monday. Despite it being only three days, I was really hoping for him to receive it today so I could officially post the mix to the blog. So dear readers you will have to wait for the official post, however I am including the soundcloud upload of it. So far I’ve gotten a lot of praise for this mix which is a relief because I was not happy with the initial live-mixed recording of this mp3. After five days of listening to it non stop, that has passed. And who cares, really? It is after all, a mixtape live-mixed for one person in mind. Tracklist (as repeatedly requested this week) and full posting to come upon receipt of the mixtape.

Also in quinquennial commemoration of Farced, I plan to live-mix every single Farced mix I have posted into mp3s, as I have promised for years now. The first being the ever popular Ohne Titel mix. It’ll be quite the project but I feel that this is the next phase of things.

In typical Farced fashion, I have included the track “Five Years Life” by Aus Decline as featured on the tirelessly fantastic 1983 Italian minimal compilation First Relation.

Happy Birthday Farced!

p.s. I made a tumblr scrapbook of various 35mm photos I’ve taken in the past five years. more posts to come to that as soon as I have time to scan the dillion rolls I have.

Once again I’ve gone months without updating this dear blog, meanwhile the feed subscription count has gone through the roof! Hello new readers and old! I’m updating today to post about my DJing tonight with Turntable Artist Maria Chavez at The Bedford, starting at 10PM! Come by after all of your Fashion’s Night Out events to dance to some good tunes! There will be drink specials and best of all this event is free!

Details and facebook event here.

More music posts and details about future DJ gigs to come!

My love affair with Boytronic started when my best friend Diana put them on a mix for me back when I was not even of age to drink. For the longest time “You” was my favorite track, making its way to the Ohne Titel mix from last year. This week I dug out my copy of “Bryllyant” in preparation for Katie Rose & I’s monthly night, Pleasure Discipline tomorrow, thus starting this week long Boytronic mania. For the past two days I’ve woken up with sexy sax filled “(I Want To Live) In Harmony” off of 1983’s The Working Model in my head which is far from a complaint. The days prior it was their later (1985) “Late Night Satellite” on steady rotation on my turntable and in my head. I couldn’t believe that “(I Want To Live) In Harmony” hadn’t been uploaded to youtube so I took the liberty of adding it to Farced’s youtube channel. I am including it with this post along with “Recycled” as previously posted here.

If you’re in NYC, come out to Daddy’s tomorrow night for Pleasure Discipline! I’ve dug out some goodies in preparation for the “post-rapture” madness.

Just a quick update to let my readers know that I am DJing Wierd tonight, Wednesday, May 4th at Home Sweet Home for the special return of Wierd Records’ own Automelodi of Montreal.

10pm – 4am

“Baundarie Jazz” as heard in the video above was included in the Doubt to Nothing mixtape from last summer.
