Check out the hundreds of artwork
designs I have made over the years. A lot of it stems from
just making websites that I wanted to make, but there is also a
lot of production work I have done for other companies, such as
I worked with an independent film
company a few years ago called Restraining Hollywood, which made
strange little short movies with a very dark sense of humor.
We also shot a lot of video of bands and then I edited together.
Check out all the stuff here.
Websites, memes, strange stuff,
games, occurrences, art and other things I have found on the
web. More to come when I find it!
I have created hundreds of designs
and uploaded them to Zazzle and put them on hundreds of
products. Totally customizable, you can add text or change
background colors or sizes of shirts or borders on a poster or
size of the pic on a coffee cup - however you want to do it is
up to you! There are literally 1000s of combinations you
could come up with. Or if you like it just the way it is,
keep it the way it is =)! Amazing artwork - check out my
ShatterLinez, PlaneScapez and SYSTEM lines. Absolutely
hilarious stuff - check out MalaBrute, Ye Dirty Olde Man
Magazine, Come Get You Some and other funny things you just
don't see on an everyday ordinary shirt/cup/poster/etc.
Think outside the box and get yourself something unique,
stylish, and insane all wrapped into one. All printed with
high grade inks on quality clothing, paper, or whatever else you
put it on. Check It Out Sometime!
I have collected some of my
favorite YouTube vidz and put them up to share with everyone
else. Check em, most of them made me laugh so hard I
cried, some of them just kind of put you in a trance, you're so
transfixed by what's happening. I am a lover of Chaos -
anything can happen at any time - and the stuff being put on
YouTube are fine examples of 'WTF?'
Stopping By My Website!
I have just released my album
Please Insert Me, 70 minutes of great electronica,
my first full-length release for sale. I spent a lot
of time on it, and there's a little bit of everything for
everyone. Take a listen and buy it please! (Learn
I am DJ.Skagnetti, and I make
electronica. I have been making
electronica since 2001, taking breaks here and there, but
I'm still at it! I have been doing much over the past
few years. I made an album with my friend Vosa Em
called So Many Days In June by Agent Empire (Learn More). I joined
a band called Precious Metals and play synths, kaoss pads
and samplers, things I never had any previous experience
with, but have come to quite enjoy. I may even get
some stuff for myself and use it in my own music, but that's
a little further down the line (Learn More).
I also made music with my
friend Dustin Duffy who has helped produce, mix and master my
tracks for my last 2 albums. We just basically jammed, he
would pick up a guitar or a bass or play a keyboard and I would
sample it using a kaoss pad, and play synths myself, and we'd
play over programmed beats or beats that I made. We'd jam
out for hours at a time, and we cut out some of the best bits to
put up on soundcloud, calling it the Kodiak Sessions (Learn
Precious Metals had a practice space for a while, and for a
couple months on the weekends we weren't practicing we'd shoot a
fun little show called 2 Puppets. It was 2 Puppets who
were just vulgar and said pretty much whatever they wanted.
They had people calling into the show and other crazy stuff.
I played whimsical background music during the show, sampling
keyboards and stuff with a kaoss pad (Learn More). We'd also do a
Freestyle Jam, where our friend Evan Lefavor, who was one
of the voices of the 2 Puppets along with Dustin, would
freestyle rap over beats that I made and we'd sample loops of
keyboards and guitar over that, sending it out live over uStream
Awesome times all around, but unfortunately I had to move home
because I lost my job in May 2012 and couldn't find another one
for the life of me.
I have been making many songs
I just put up 135 songs on the
QuickList - listen to them all for free! That's almost 7
hours of music. (Learn
Second, I've worked on it on
and of for 3 years, but my Next next full-length is pretty well
put together now. I will probably finish it up, have it
mastered and it will be out Spring of 2014. Some of the
songs are on my soundcloud player above, check em all out (most
say rough cut after them in parenthesis.) I'd planning on
calling it "Me and You." (Learn More)
After 10 years of calling
myself a DJ (I always just joke and say it stands for Digital
Journeyman, Digital Jockey, or Dirty Jack), I finally started to
make some mixes of my own. I call them BattleStations, and
they are full of electro/dubstep/breakbeat goodness!!
I also made beats and melodies
for some people who said they were going to freestyle over them,
make songs out of them, or just use them for practice, but the
only person who ever did anything with them was Evan Lefavor.
Thanks Evan! (Learn More)
One of the songs I made for the
next album is called Me And You and I used it to make a
commercial for my Zazzle stores about a year ago.
I'm a huge nerd, and I've been
making a game in RMXP (a game that lets you make your own RPG
game in the style of old-school nintendo and super nintendo
games like Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy, but with 32-bit
graphics.) I have made a lot of original artwork for it
and also a lot of original music. I have no idea when I'll
finish it. (Learn More)
Beyond that, I've made just a
bunch of odds and ends which I don't know if I'll ever use, or
maybe someday I'll turn them into a masterpiece, or maybe I'll
just throw them away.
Over the years my website has
changed many times, ranging in motifs such as a movie star kind
of thing to a top secret agent kind of thing to my last one -
Guns Guns Guns - a gun wielding maniac kind of thing.
Lot's of people didn't get the Guns Guns Guns motif at all,
which had various shaped guns for links and gun separators.
It was a joke, people! The only thing I'll ever terrorize
is your senses!
Now I've redone the entire
site, bringing it in a whole new direction - Rainbowy Unicorns
and Robots and Toys! Because rainbowy unicorns and robots
and toys is what
my music is all about. I've gone with a lot lighter colors
than in previous incarnations, along with a lot of, uh, rainbowy
unicorns and robots and toys.

hard times so I'm back in my hometown, making some money and
paying off some debts. Need money. Please give.

Originally this was supposed to be
for sale, a 2 CD set over 2 hours long, where each song
blended into the next one. I had it pretty close
to finished when my hard drive crashed in '09. I
recently went through my entire website looking for all
music I have uploaded, and found a lot of the songs that
I had split into singles a long time ago. It's not
mastered, some were really blown out, so I normalized
them and did the best I could, but here it is finally (9
years after I started ithttp://www.black-ogre.com/djskagnetti.) - The Traitor of the 9
My first retail EP, 60
minutes long, packed to the brim with intriguing
electronica. First in a lot of things, first album
I ever sold, first EP I ever made, first song I ever
sang on, first time using Reason, and marked a gentle
transition from Acid Pro to Reason, containing songs
created with both programs. Buy it off Nimbit for
Check this one out, it's probably
the best of all the free albums. Each song title is a
reference to an anime movie. The title to the album
itself is in reference to that angry rap rock shite that
was so entrenched in our society around 2000-2004.
F*ck Like a Whisper - A very strange
song, an even stranger video! I made it with Adobe Premiere
and the footage is from Archive.org. This song is off my next
album "Please Insert Me", due to be released May 28th,
To view other videos from "Please
Insert Me" and other stuff I've done,
I started making an album back
in 2003, and kept adding and taking away and adding and
taking away and changing and changing and changing.
It's probably gone through 30 different stages at least.
I made so much music for it, I had to turn it into a 2 disk
set. Over 2 hours of music.
But then my harddrive crashed
in March of 2009, and I lost not only all that but like pretty much
everything I've ever done in the last 8 years:
artwork, music, programs, videos, like, everything.
Always back up your shit.
Anyways, that CD was called
"Traitor of the 9 Moons", and while I may have a few .mp3s
or .wavs floating around of it, I lost all the loops and
samples for it so there's no way I can really go back
and alter or change it if need be.
Update: I found
many of the old .mp3 files on my website buried deep within
the layers of it's expanse, and have recently released what
I could of Traitor of the 9 Moons - 25 songs free, for you!
Check it out.
Anyways, it turned into kind
of a concept album over the process of creating it, and I
made a little backstory to it. I actually like the
backstory better than the album, and if you'd like to check
it out, awesome! If not, well fine I didn't want you
reading my awesome story anyways. pff
There's nothing worse than
being the new guy/gal in town. Don't know where to
go for fun, don't know what's cool and what's not, don't
know the little hierarchy of people in town or personal
traits or who not to hang out with or who can get you in
with the 'in' crowd. And that's not cool.
So here in SkagnettiLand,
I've developed a process to help you get better
acquainted with my music. It took years of fine
tuning and thousands upon thousands of complex geometric
equations, but I have finally perfected the process and
present it to you. No matter what your style of
music preference is, I will try my damndest to help you
find it. I got you!
It's kind of like those old
choose your own adventure books, I ask some questions and
you answer and I'll try to match the music I think you would
like based on your answers!
