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!

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.

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!
