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 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.

lyrics

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.
