Welcome to Merck Fragments. I’m Gabe Koch, also known as DJ Merck, the founder and manager of both Merck and Narita Records. We’ve stopped releasing new music on Merck as of January 2007 and Narita as of September 2008. This is a weblog I set up to recommend music, links, and just rant. I will be dropping recommendations on music across a variety of genres, mixes from over the years, and other music related stuff. As well as some posts on culture and other interesting topics that may cross my path. And last but not least, and probably most important to you hardcore Merck fans out there, some background stories and exclusive mp3s to give you a bit of a treat and behind the scenes look at things with Merck and Narita.
