Favorite ThisD.V.S* shares first chunk of latest album

Published: January 23, 2011

Derek VanScoten is taking full advantage of the changing media industry, choosing to release his latest album "Coming Up for Air" in 4 parts throughout the year.  The first three tracks are out now, with just a part of the album artwork, which will be assembled with each new drop.  D.V.S* (or the Dick Van Dyke of dubstep and downtempo, as we like to call him, for his one-man-bandery) slices seamlessly across genres with this latest trio of offerings.  Calling his tracks "bright step" and "electronic glo-fi soulgaze" is as close as you're going to get to nailing the fat synth lines synced with soaring guitar riffs.  The glitch and break derived beats drive the tunes ever onwards and upwards.  Quite a treat for tired ears, DVS*'s taste of "Air" is refreshing, crisp, and cool.
