Due to my staggered output in various places in 2013, I figured I make a list of everything I dropped this past year. here ya go…

Hit the Clouds Running- I started off with the singles Trapsody in Blue, Sleepwalker and Roll the Dice. In early April all 10 songs dropped on Gravitas Recordings. My favorite press quotes were:
“Positively dreamy.” -Songster
“The Playa lovechild of Lunice and Ratatat. -SF Public Works

Beatles remix- broke the top 5 on Hype machine for this bear. Good lookin’. Funny to think I almost abandoned this one. Fave quote for this one: “We’ve stumbled upon some magic here.” -Vibe.com

My Odesza remix: I called this one Sprinklerstep.

Sharam- On and On remix: another Hype Machine charter. Fun Fact… the 11th version of this song was the one released. :)
“…like with the rest of the D.V.S* discography, in its entirety, this track is flawless, beautiful dubstep. Classic.” -Do Androids Dance

Emancipator- Dusk to Dawn
I lent some mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar to the title track of Emancipator’s latest album.

Random Rab- Blast Off
I also lent mandolin and slide guitar to this track. Def a personal fave.

Minnesota Remix… wow I made a house track!

Cherub Remix: a nu disco flip of one of my fave groups.
