Climax Remix, Relix Feature, Swaager Video, Summer Dates

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!

Derek VanScoten The Code

Today is the day. Exactly 6 months after I brought you the double album “Coming Up For Air,” I present “The Code.”
This psychedelic guitar-electronica was inspired by the imagery of codes and symbols throughout various cultures and eras. It’s out today via Daly City Records.
Thanks! -Derek

Fall 2011 News!

Posted on 09/03/11 by DVS*

After an amazing summer of playing festivals 13 out of 14 weekends in a row, I’m back in the clubs this fall.

The remainder of “Coming Up For Air’” will drop in late October/ Early November, and be a double album (yes, in an age of singles and ep’s, I’m releasing a double album).

On the tour front: I’ll be hitting several new places, as well as some old favorites. Due to popular demand, I’ve also been added to all 4 nights in Colorado with my man emancipator! I’ll be opening each night, and most likely joining him for parts of his set as well!
