Each and every Halloween DJ Death hits the scene Droppin’ beats from club to club Leaving trails of death and blood You’ll never know where she’ll go She joins the show with mind control When DJ Death enters the club The spinning DJ starts to run. Ooo- DJ Death, Ooo- DJ Death DJ Death makes everyone dance You’ll dance the best You’ve ever danced But when it ends, the story goes YOU WILL DIE AND BLOOD WILL FLOW Ooo- DJ Death, Ooo- DJ Death When DJ Death spins her set Everyone gets up to dance The music pulls you from your seat You can’t help but spill your drink Hang your arms in front like a zombie Kick your feet from side to side Shake your butt simultaneously If it’s hard to do then you’re very, very lucky Cuz’ DJ Death ain’t in your head… no, no, no… DJ Death ain’t in your head… no, no, no… DJ Death ain’t in your head… no, no, no… DJ Death ain’t in your head… YET. Ooo- DJ Death, Ooo- DJ Death... Starts with a little oooz from your ears But you’re dancing so hard You really don’t care Then all of sudden, your belly button Is drippin’ blood down your belly muffin Before you know- you’re on the floor Dead as can be- all blood and gore. Ooo- DJ Death, Ooo- DJ Death... So when you’re out this Halloween If DJ Death’s on the scene You betta’ run, run, run As fast as you can Or you will die when the beat ends. RUN FOR IT! It’s DJ Death You betta’ run, run, run Run for it It’s DJ Death, run, run DJ Death, run, run You betta’ run, run, run As fast as you can… It’s DJ Death, run, run DJ Death You betta’ run, run You betta’ run DJ Death.

about

This thumping Halloween electro dance track shares the story of DJ Death: a mind controlling DJ that gets in your head, making you dance the best you’ve ever danced… of course, when the beat ends, you will die and blood will flow. Better run!

DJ Death was initially written by Kara Square with a ukulele. You can hear the uke riff the best at the beginning of the track. The bass line mirrors it. The song immediately lent itself to video, so Kara enlisted her talented artistic friend, Chris Smallwood, to create artwork for her to animate. This music video was posted on YouTube in 2011 under Kara’s pseudonym Mind Map That. When the music video was posted, Kara also shared the vocal, ukulele, and bass stems on ccMixter to encourage remixes of the song. It was enthusiastically embraced by the international remixing community. The cover art was designed by Joel Frijters from SoundAdvantage and includes Chris Smallwood’s original artwork of the DJ Death character. The track has been re-mastered for its official release on October 4, 2012.
