My interest in Gothic literature and media is complemented by an interest in goth, industrial, and electronic music. As DJ cypher, I have been active as a club, radio, and internet DJ since 1994.
I currently host two online radio shows. Started in 1999 on terrestrial radio, Dark Nation Radio is my weekly program focusing on new goth, industrial, and intelligent electronica. It is now among the most-established and longest-running "dark music" programs on the web. The program airs weekly on Sunday evenings from 9 - 11 PM Eastern time on Spirit of Resistance Radio.
I also host DJ cypher's Psychobilly Family Power Hour--a semi-monthly show that focuses on rockabilly, psychobilly, and punk rock. It airs on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 9 PM Eastern time on Spirit of Resistance Radio.
All my shows are recorded and I have over 300 of them available on my Mixcloud page. I've recently added another streaming platform that allows shows to be downloaded as podcasts. You can access those here.
Here are a few direct links to a handful of my favorite programs:
Dark Nation Radio presents Traveler: dark electro from the Middle East and South Asia
Dark Nation Radio presents World Goth Day 2023
Dark Nation Radio presents A Dark Solstice 2023
I have held DJ residencies at Contempt NYC and BOUND DC. I both hosted and DJed for the Darkwave Lounge (Michigan) and BOUND Hartford.
Guest spots have included Convergence X (Chicago), Dracula's Ball (Philadelphia), Ghoul School (Hollywood), Endless Night (New Orleans), and House of Voodoo (San Francisco). In April of 2015 I was the featured DJ at the 20th anniversary event for Philadelphia's Dancing Ferret Concerts.
In April of 2021, I created a DJ-mixed label sampler for FiXT records that may be streamed here.
