Sunday techno rock mix.

Yes, I have been at it again; playing with my sampler and mixing decks to produce a double layered, bespoke and completely original new mix. Combining pumping techno rhythms with wall of sound guitar feedback and metal riffs, I bring you Metalik, an epic masterpiece now available on Bandcamp.

You can listen for free and/or purchase the track for a piddling fee with the embedded player link below.

Rock on, my dudes.

Bank holiday bonus track.

As promised, I’m here to premiere another new tune, which I was originally going to use as part of a project to remix The Cure‘s epic instrumental track, Carnage Visors.

This particular incarnation of the evolving composition proved unsuitable for the final version of the Cure mix, (about which, more later) but it seemed a waste to consign it to the digital scrapheap, so I added some atmospherics to the basic framework and voila!

Sunday mix.

I’m proud to present two more eclectic selections from my new musical output for your Sunday evening listening pleasure.

First a funky little number called Brass Monkey Business, featuring the warm and organic sounds of horns and guitars…

…contrasting nicely with this bouncy slab of techno, going by the name of Biometrik

Hope you enjoy those, sorry if you’ve been waiting since last weekend, I completely forgot.

As a bonus, I shall be uploading another new tune tomorrow, promise…

Friday mix double header.

With another unplanned week off work as corona-furlough strikes again, I’ve been sitting in my garden studio (oh, alright, in a comfortable chair with my phone) adding to my rapidly expanding music catalogue.

First there’s this chilled out cinematic epic, once again produced from scratch with two completely separate, bespoke pieces of music, which I then mixed together on my DJ app…

…and here is the accompanying, multilayered video I created for it:

After which I was inspired by the warmth of the sunshine to make this rather infectious, (in a good way) Latin-tinged, rhythmic electro number…

…with more optical gymnastics to go with it:

More to come tomorrow, watch this space.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Monday again, so it’s time for our regular journey down the optical rabbit hole; Giving it the old collage try.

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to do some photographic applique and make a collage from whatever images you liked.

I always enjoy the meticulous process of creating these odd little scenes, see if you can spot the seven additions to this picture from last week’s post.

What did you put together for our visual delectation this week?

To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.

Tag your posts with #CosPhoChal.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages, animation, gifs, or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Apologies for the lateness of the hour, I’ve had a bit of a full week this week, but I have a fine idea for the theme of The Cosmic Photo Challenge today to make up for it. Having noted the popularity of our recent “artistic” prompt, I’m going with another freestyle concept; Giving it the old collage try.

You see what I did there?

Yes, it’s time to test your editing skills once more and combine multiple photos into one aesthetically pleasing whole image.

Any subject, any style, any processes or techniques, just mash ’em up and have some fun.

See y’all on Monday with a bit of photo-combo mumbo-jumbo, have a great weekend.

One liner Wednesday: Midweek mix.

The alternative dictionary takes brief sabbatical again this week, to allow me to show off my latest audio visual project.

I have used my sequencer to compose all the additional music required to make a completely new mix of the Kate Bush song, King Of The Mountain, accompanied by a similarly upgraded video.

Enjoy.

Back by (not very) popular demand: DJ dc57 and the Wheels of Steal.

No, that’s not a typo, it’s a reference to the blatant artistic thievery I employ to create my unconventional mashup mixes; jamming together unsuspecting and unlikely tunes for my own twisted entertainment.

Well, I’ve been producing them for long enough now that I thought I should compile some of the best and make them freely available, as an unofficial and totally unauthorised release on my newly re-energised Bandcamp page.

I cannot possibly charge you anything for them – I can’t even allow you to “name your price” due to copyright issues – however, there is nothing to stop anyone from browsing the rest of my back catalogue and choosing to pay for a completely different track, while downloading the free remixes…

Anyway, the album is embedded below, should you wish to sample its delights, and quite a mixed bag of obtuse musical juxtapositions it is, too.

Both the somewhat blunt title and mildly disturbing cover art, (which, you’ll be unsurprised to learn, are Twin Peaks-related in-jokes) are from an album I created to store all the mixes in my phone’s music player, so it seemed only fitting that I use it for its real world release, so to speak.

Brace yourselves…

Midweek music/movie mashup.

Continuing my mission to squish together unlikely combinations of bands with stolen cinematic footage, may I present my latest mashup of musical madness.

This particular peculiar pairing features The Fun Lovin’Criminals and Leftfield, combined with some predictably blood-soaked clips from movie maestro Quentin Tarantino.

Here is the dc57 Dusted Mix of Korean Bodega, enjoy.

***Exclusive Album Launch Announcement***

Yes, it’s true.

ISOLATION RADIO, the album, is a reality!

I have just released my first ever collection of original musical material for public consumption on Bandcamp and here exclusively and first anywhere in the world, I present it to you, my lovely readers.

You have already had a chance to sample many of the delights contained within, via the audio visual noodling I have engaged in of late, but now is your chance to actually own my…uniquely unschooled sonic oeuvre.

If I have embedded it correctly, you should see the Bandcamp player for the album below, where you may experience it for free as often as you like.

If for some reason you are unable to access Isolation Radio directly from there, you can find it HERE; where you are welcome to purchase it for the frankly piddling sum of £3, (or more, should you deem it worthy) or even browse the free tracks I have experimented with over the years.
