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.

Happy Belated new year.  I bring you a new Facebook Page , a new remix, and new tour.

Like a jazz musician (or house DJ), this year I am beginning to release music and perform under my full name, Derek VanScoten. It seemed appropriate to start a new Facebook page so that people could find me more easily. Throughout the year, this page will containing exclusive access to my new remixes, and originals.  This month I give you my remix of the “Rocky Theme.” In case you missed last months remix of Brooklyn’s own Break Science/ Talib Kweli, you can also find it on the new page.

My Winter Tour 2012 brings me to several new spots in the South, Northeast and West.  It includes dates with Ott, The Polish Ambassador, Eliot Lipp, Nit Grit, the SnowMont Festival, and a co-headlining tour in the Northeast with Philly’s Sonic Spank and Silo Effect. Boo-yah!

Re:Mixes!!!

I have several remixes coming out on various labels over the next few months. As promised on Facebook last week, here is the first one, my remix of “The End” by The Doors.

  The Doors- “The End” (D.V.S* Remix) by D.V.S* ~Derek VanScoten

Thanks to all the friends that came through and convinced The New Deal to have me as their last opening act ever. This song is an ode to the end of the year, the New Deal’s career, and the Mayan calendar of course.
 
Vide-ohs!

While I was in Denver last month, supporting the new double album, I sat down for an interview with DMTv.  I talked a bit about why I released 30 songs at once, and how I describe my music. They included shots from the Summit Music Hall show that night.
