A new column here on VF! some great new music in club music and electronic dance you can’t miss! From Dark Electro to EBM and Synthpop, there are some great new beats for the middle of the year, especially from a few select labels- and apparently, Dark Dimensions has been on fire this past month!
Check out the links to the labels’ sites to keep up with these newly released & upcoming works and read on:
Chainreactor- Overcharging System- Dark Dimensions Label Group
From the new Mass Driver album, Chainreactor’s new album shows a progression of music and style while keeping the same production style that keeps his work one of my favourites. An amazing release!
Neusn- Es Geschiet Nichts (Voodoopriester Remix)- Rawhard Audio Records
Another monster from Rawhead Audio, this entire EP release from Neusn has dark, noisy and hard works to choose from. This remix is a standout.
Noisuf-X- Prison For Your Mind- Dark Dimensions Label Group
From the new ‘Invasion’ album, which is a killer release! Nearly every track is hard-to-the-floor and you
Xotox- slÃ¥ tillbaka (Remix by Suicide Commando)- Dark Dimensions Label Group
Off of the Redux EP release (that’s also on vinyl!), there are some stellar remixes on this plus some original new Xotox tracks. This Suicide Commando was a surprise to hear laid over Xotox’s work and it works!
Harm Joy- We Keep Circling (Spin Mix by Eisfabrik)- Emmo.biz Records
The melodic work and moving lyrics keep this track on repeat- this is a synthpop laden song that everyone should love moving to.
Anthony Pablo- Prime- Green Mono Music
From the UK- One of my favorite new electronic music labels and apparently they've decided to release one club masterpiece after another this year including this moving track from Anthony Pablo. Fantastic production work and driving rhythm.
Mr. Kitty- Scars- Negative Gain Productions
This entire album from Mr. Kitty is amazing, one that you can play back and repeat from start to finish; a wonderfully synth / electro laden work and great wistful vocal styling reminiscent of New Order. The Scars track really stands out with its lyrics. Get this album and the follow up release ASAP.
BhamBhamHara- Nur fuer Euch (Zensiert by [:SITD:])- Dark Dimensions Label Group
BBH’s single release from their latest album contains this fantastic remix from [:SITD:] (an all-time favourite) and it’s great how well it stands out from the well-done original version.
E-Craft- Gone- Infacted Recordings
From the outstanding new E-Craft album. Dark Electro / EBM at high quality and a driving beat.
Cally & Juice- Virus (MKN Remix)- Ourstyle Recordings
A Hardstyle mover from this solid label. Make sure to check out Cally & Juice’s other works!
Check out these other incredible tracks to blow out your earholes with:
Mthmphtmn- Tunglmyrkvi (Mick Scamo Remix)- Rawhard Audio Records
Rawhard continues giving music lovers more to stomp to. This remix is only one of the many noisy dark tech tracks on this EP!
Alex Scherz- Dubformation 2.0 (Decibel Flekx Repurpose)- Rawhard Audio Records
- and yes, one more from the label! Go to Rawhard’s site on Beatport and lose your mind to this amazing material!
Wumpscut- Wreath of Barbs (Desastroes Remix)- BKM
This remix to a modern :W: classic has a great twist to a familiar melody. You’ll love this re-interpretation!
Alter Der Ruine- Leviathan- Negative Gain Productions
ADR’s new album shows a different direction at such an expertise quality of production work. This track is one of many selected new favourites!
Cosmic Armchair- Conversation- Alfa Matrix
A surprise release from Alfa Matrix, it will be very interesting to hear the direction this project takes after checking out this track.
Ian Rupert- Deep Swagger- Green Mono Music
The UK’s Green Mono Music label continues the incredible electronic dance output. True to the track’s title, the groove on this one makes you sway if not swagger and move to the low tones. Love this one!

I believe we will be investing in a new laptop soon since the two we have here are completely fubar. My partner in crime/neighbor just hooked up Wi-Fi for us to start promoting our work so I'll likely be around more soon. I know I said it before, but it's in motion now. I also got a new phone...again with the fubar with my old phone, so already this site is easier for me to browse. I'll see you guys soon in tc circle

As some of you know, we have a 'VF Sponsored cults' feature where we select 15 of the most active cults each month and give them special features / privileges, such as more chances to earn VF points and custom layout designs. There's been some recent drama / complaints about a particular cult that lost their sponsored status due to spam complaints.
Just to be clear - the 'VF sponsored cults' has always been an experimental extra bonus feature for VF, it's not a standard feature of the site and not something that we owe to any cult. We do try to provide the best customer service possible and our members always come first, but there are some features which are simply experimental and not part of our standard service.
As always we are indeed working on a number of ways to improve VF and some ideas are simply in testing phase.
We continue to try new ideas / experiments to improve the site and we appreciate everyone's support and feedback.
I'm not 100% sure. She said she's more likely to sponsor cults with active discussions than cults that run on games. All the cults will have to go under some kind of 'review' before being given sponsorship. But I assume cults like Cynosure will be sponsored too despite the games, because so many people find the cult useful in other ways. But no, I don't think anyone is quite ridiculous enough to deem 'Count Up' as quality content.
So I don't play with a lot of my characters or do anything with them at all so I'm going to make a tab that says "Dead" and under this tab are going to be several of my characters. Please go and check the list and tell me if I need to take one of them off and not kill them off. Thank you.
Not good when I have to call out of work but had to yesteeday. Damn rib had killed me for 2 damn days. Weird thig is it took a good week to do that. And that's after dealing with a fucked up shoulder. What can I say I'm good at hurting my self. lol
Several Bands / headliners including Marilyn Manson and Combichrist have reported news of the cancellation, although no official statement has been released yet. Combichrist reports: "We received notice this morning that the Alt-Fest Festival in Kettering, UK booked for the weekend of August 15-17, has been cancelled," they wrote. "As of now the organizers of the event haven't made an official announcement but unless there is a massive cabal afoot, we will believe the word we received from our agency. So we are sad to report to you that we won't be appearing in the UK this Summer..."
We've got a bunch of friends who were planning on going and they're wondering what is up but some of our band sources have confirmed that it is cancelled. This looks like it was going to be an awesome festival so we hope for the best!
It's hard to believe they had less than 8,000 tickets sold. Like the message said, they had some Killer! bands playing there. I haven't seen Manson at any of the other festival line ups.I guess at the end of the day it came down to the competition and marketing.Everything was there for it to be an amazing festival, it just didn't come together.I hope something as awesome as this comes around again
Manson's first show because of the Russia bullshit starts August 6th. I'm guessing he's going to try and make another date in replacement for Alt-Fest. Every one seemed excited for this. I saw that the tickets were selling out pretty good but I guess that wasn't the case right?

I've had a YouTube channel for a little under 4 years now. I've deleted out a solid 150-200 videos over the course of time, due to people's disinterest in them or simply saying I posted something that was in poor taste, lol. I'm only human, I make mistakes. I use to post a lot of videos that were 10, 20, 30+ minutes... people don't like that. Gotta give the people what they want, right? *shrugs* I go through periods of time where I'll post many videos, almost one daily to times where I'll post a video every couple months. My channel is mostly about entertainment and comedy. I enjoy making people laugh and having fun. If you can get something out of that... GREAT! It's like free therapy for me, in a way.
I'm approaching 400 subscribers. It has taken me so long to get there because I'm not cute, hot, attractive, young or female. I'm just a 34 year old dude on the internet making silly-ass'd videos for the love of entertaining and having fun. My profession is oil painting. I paint nudes. It's not as fun as it would seem and yes, even the human form can get boring. YouTube is a nice escape for me to be creative in another way that I enjoy. In the future, I'll be doing film projects, but for now I'm just going with the flow and doing what I do.
I'm posting this journal because I was curious if people feel I should do something special for the subscribers when I hit 500. Should I and if so, what? I can't send 500 individual people a free gift... rather, I won't be doing that, heh. I'm not running a fucking ebay store, I don't have the will or time to award 500 people with a gift. What are your thoughts on giving out some really awesome prizes to maybe 3-10 subscribers though? I think that might be fun to do when I hit 500. Unless it's more customary to do that when you hit 1,000. But it's safe to say I'll not be hitting that number, ya know?
Anyway, leave me your thoughts on the topic, even if you don't know me or aren't subscribed to my channel. I like to make people smile. Video game consoles and big screen televisions make people smile. What kind of prizes/gifts make you smile?
