Winter Dates/ Ableton Artist Party in L.A.

Posted on 01/17/13 by DVS*
Lights All Night

Happy new year all,
I’ve been hunkered down in the the studio since my last show at Lights All Nights on NYE.

I’m honored that I will be one of nine artists performing at the that Ableton NAMM party this year in Hollywood, CA. I’ll be joining a super size roster including Beats Antique, Nosaj Thing, 6 more! I’ll also be performing my entire set on the new PUSH controller, which is exciting, as it hasn’t even gone into mass production yet.
Look for a new full length album this spring. In the meantime, here’s some upcoming gigs….

Pink Floyd Remix/ Ableton Clinic

Posted on 10/25/12 by DVS*

Last week I dropped my dubstep/chillstep rendition of Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them.” It’s clocked in around 4,000 plays in the first week. Thanks for the love!

After 5 weeks of touring the northeast and south, I’m chilin’ in NYC for a bit. On Thurs Nov 1st, I’ll be participating in an Ableton seminar at Tekserve. It will be streaming live on the net.

Climax Remix, Relix Feature, Swaager Video, Summer Dates

Posted on 06/05/12 by DVS*

I just dropped a Summertime Chillout Remix of Usher/ Diplo’s “Climax.” I turned it into a 2-step and then surrounded it with all kinds of guitars. Feel free to bump this one from the backyard, rootftop, or beach over the next fews months.

The June 2012 issue of Relix magazine features an interview with me in the “On the Verge” section. Past acts to grace this column include Devotchka, Mumford and Sons, and Yeasayer. Grab a copy of at your local newsstand, or peep it online here.

Boston/ NYC music blog The Braintrust wrote a very insightful review of my latest ep “The Code.” Check it out here. I just may be the only electronic producer that has a press pic of themselves playing the mandolin in a suit.

While I was out west in March, Swaager put together an artist profile video from footage at the Fox Theatre show. Topics include influences, vision and equipment.

Here’s some early summer dates as well!

The Softstep Controller

Posted on 10/19/11 by DVS*

I’m thrilled to announce that I’m an official “Keith McMillen” artist, and will be using the Sofstep foot controller as part of my live shows and studio work. A couple of years ago I stumbled across their website, and was blown away at what they could do for the future of string musicians playing electronic music.
This amazing midi controller can pretty much fulfill any forward thinking guitarist’s dreams. Look for a D.V.S* Softstep video sometime in November!
