The music of D.V.S* stems from his love of infectious bass tracks, fused with a visionary effect that years of guitar playing have had on him. Classical, 60′s psychedelia, R&B, americana, and shoegaze are all intertwined with downtempo, nu disco, dubstep, and garage to create something “positively dreamy.” (Songster)
As a testament to the the widespread appeal of his melodic bass style, his 2013 Beatles “Because” remix reached the top of the Hype Machine charts, and gained blog attention from around the world.
The productions of D.V.S* have been released through Electronic Musician Magazine, Soulection, Loci, Yoshi Toshi, 1320 records, Pretty Lights Music, Cantora, Dub Lab, and many more.
As a diverse performer, D.V.S* has spent considerable time on the road with electronic acts including Big Gigantic, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Tycho, Cherub, EOTO, Tipper, Lotus and Pantyraid.
As a respected multi-instrumentalist, he has performed with diverse talents like Devotchka, The Motet, DJ Logic, and the Boulder Philharmonic.
Festival highlights include: Lights all Night, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, Lightning in a Bottle, Sonic Bloom, SXSW, The Manifestation Celebration, Gathering of the Vibes, and San Francisco Bicycle Day.
