Working hard on what will become the next album, with much more soon to follow. Not long now mwahaha... Thanks for your patients you fine people. In the mean time check out this really fun interview I did with my good friend Kayla Graham for DJmag. Twas a fun one to do. Many thanks!
Longwalkshortdock – An Anomaly Amongst Us bc.djmag.ca To say Longwalkshortdock is a bit of an anomaly is a bit of an understatement. From top to bottom, his entire show cannot be specified, classified, or imitated. Some would call his deep pounding grooves techno, some would call it industrial inspired electronica, some would call it video game music,…
May I present, the LAST song in this batch of Monday Free Tunes! Its just for a while, I have more free stuff planned for later in the year, but this is the last one thats ready and mastered etc. Also, doing things a bit different this time and sending you over to my fantastic label East Van Digital. Seriously, check em out and get familiar. A bunch of past/forthcoming releases from me and many friends thru this fine establishment. Go on over there and check it out for your free Rocket Lawnchair! Much love for the support and for listening to and downloading the free tunes. Up next... RELEASES! Mwhahaha... stay tuned.
It was about someone, then it was about someone else, then it was about a place, then it was about me. I don't know what its about anymore, but I really like it. Here's today free chune. Side note: I played this at a few dates on the tour as the last song of the night and didn't realize the lyrical irony as the lights were coming on until now haha. Well, If you heard this song, then your a champion and thanks for sticking it out to the end. Much love.
You feeling a little.... STRESSED OUT! ....AT WORK?!?! This weeks free tune is for you. This is a VERY early LWSD track from when I was trying to figure out Ableton in like 2005... Probably one of the first 5 songs I made with it. Its fairly ridiculous, so apologies in advance. I was full of quite a bit of angst at the time haha. Anyway, take this one with a grain of salt, a big one. Also, let it be known, that if you leave me stupid drunken voicemails, they "may" be immortalized in song.... Enjoy!
On behalf of myself and RimVisuals I would like to sincerely show my thanks and gratitude to all you fine people that came out and supported our show this winter tour. Some of the most fun shows I've ever had the pleasure to do, and I was thrilled to meet so many great new people and see some old friends as well. Much love to you all. Here is This weeks free tune, apologies for the delay but Soundcloud was being a jerk yesterday/today and the upload kept failing. This is a weird experiment I tried that is just kinda fun, and kinda sad. Thats how the world works sometimes. Enjoy, and many thanks again.
Time to put some BFG-9000 fuel into your fuel tank for the new year with this weeks free download... >:D I'm gonna go all IDKFA and IDDQD all over 2014! Lets kick this year off in a terrifying bang with the much requested DOOM song! Yes, its beast mode time... Sincere thanks to everyone thats been coming to the shows, been one of the best tours I've ever had the pleasure of doing and I've had some fantastic experiences with you wonderful people.

YES! Attention all you LWSD fans who also happen to be gamers (I’m gonna assume there is quite a bit of cross-over there :P) I am truly ecstatic to announce the release of the new SSX Tricky From EA Games Feb. 28th featuring a ton of wicked music from many amazing artists and a bunch of original tracks from LWSD! :D! DUDE! A dream come true really… I did a bunch of stuff for them, but not sure how/where it ended up getting used. I guess we’ll find out together! Stoked! Peep this trailer with Run DMC remix by Pretty Lights Zomg. I can’t wait… SSX: It's Tricky Trailer
Happy New Year! This year, my focus is going to be producing and performing a broader scope of music. Many new BPM’s, stlyes, Instrumentation etc. I feel this is the right direction for me as an artist right now and I’m hoping you enjoy the new depth I’m aiming to bring to the shows/releases. Fear Not! There will still be classic type LWSD as well. As always, I am committed to bringing you the best show I have the ability to put on and greatly appreciate your interest and support. Thank you all so much. Much love.

Hello! I has website! Sincere thanks for visiting. We are just starting out over here and there will be more fun stuff appearing all the time so feel free to check back at your leisure. This will start to become a main hub for all your LWSD info needs. New shows, releases, contests, bookings, downloads, pics, videos, merch…you name it! Also if you’re feeling particularly brave, you can sign up for the longwalkshortdock newsletter (which will ONLY highlight important stuff and not spam a ton of crap to your inbox). Also, by popular demand, I have reposted some classic LWSD live sets from 2009 (Uprising and Soundwave), and soon there will be some more interesting live recordings released from various other Longwalk sightings. Anyway, have a poke around and let us know what you think. Hope you enjoy and sincere thanks for your interest and support.
The First Album “Casual Tea” is now available on Beatport.com, and in 2 weeks many many other online music shops. Finally! Sincere apologies for the delay on that one.
