Happy Spring into Summer!
I just dropped my remix of “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. It’s really really good.
In other, more humble news, one of my original songs was featured on the new “National Geographic Zero to 60″ video. It’s a climbing feature called The Honnold Perspective.

My friends at Livid Industries in Austin, TX dropped their new wireless midi controller called the Guitar Wing. I was honored to be one of the first few artists to test and debut this game changing piece of tech. Check the videos below!
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.
Some parting thoughts for 2013…
I’ve been added to Lights All Night in Dallas on December 28th to close out a great year.
Info on the fest here.
Lastly, my good friends at Princeton University made a dope vid from our last party there. Check it…
thanks for great year everyone…. <3
Last week I was in Philadelphia playing a SOLD OUT show with Nightmares on Wax, and a headliner date in the beautiful town of Arden, Delaware. I met up with the guys at Funkadelphia for this lengthy exclusive interview. We rapped about everything from the larger cycles of music and Bela Fleck, to my favorite venues, and Van Halen vs. My Bloody Valentine.

“D.V.S* hot off his head turning remix of the Beatles’ “Because” that shot up the Hypem charts, delivers a beautiful dub step rendition that demands repeat plays.” -Sharam

Download full remix ep at: www.beatport.com/release/on-and-on-remixes/1187073
Currently in the top 40 on Hypemachine remixes.
I’ve been a fan of Odesza’s chill beats for a while. They are really ahead of the curve on the whole sampling game, and every track they’ve made is super ‘listenable.”
Here’s my flip of their track “Without You” which samples Gotye’s “Somebody That I used to Know,” among other things.
I was going for the ole’ “fairy dust under the sprinkler” kinda vibe here. Enjoy!
Big ups to all the blog love, including my homies “Do Androids Dance.”
