When Frank Heiss needed to pick artists to remix his precious Awaken(d) album, he went right to the best of the best in the transformational scene: Skytree, Futexture, and Derek VanScoten.
D.V.S* carefully layers his scintillating guitar over a shapeshifting foundation that opens with a clean slate, builds into a housey groove, and the drops into halftime with some psychedelic warbles. The magic and majesty in VanScoten's string work has started to build him a fan base hopelessly addicted to those soaring notes that pierce the soul and pull the heartstrings. The official remix album will be out April 14th, but you can download this puppy for free, for the cost of a Like.
