I love stats!... so here you go: Since May long weekend the total amount of kilometers driven by LWSD to come rave with you is.... (drum roll please).... 32,021 km! Which is approximately 80% of the distance around the circumference of the planet.... Yes. I'm crazy like that, but damn did I ever have some of the best times of my life. Great Success! Thanks so much to everyone at Fozzy Fest for a fantastic ending to the whole thing, and to everyone at all the stops in-between. Now to hermit out for a while and get to finishing the next record! Sorry for the delay, but that much driving equals very little time in your studio zone to finish stuff... In the cliche words of unimaginative peoples year book signings "Hope you all had a great summer" Ha! More soon. Thanks all.
Off to my last festival of the season this weekend at Fozzy Fest! Looking forward to it! A really fantastic season of these amazing gatherings this year. Super fun times all around. Also, if you missed it, check out this fun interview I did with the fine people at Spliff Breaks at Basscoast earlier this year. Thanks for having me on the show guys. Hope your all well. Thanks for caring about my music in any way shape or form. Cheers.
Well, its been one hell of a summer. Thank you so much to everyone that attended, participated, organized and threw all the amazing festivities I have had the great pleasure of playing and enjoying myself at. Seriously some amazing times. There are a coupe left for LWSD this season and then its fall/winter studio/nerd time. Catch me at Beaverfest this weekend, Aurora Innovative Arts Festival the weekend after and then finally at FozzyFest. After that, there "may" be an odd appearance but not much else until New Years in New Zealand for Rhythm and Alps ! I know many of you have been asking, "Dave, where's the new music releases?" Well, that, I'm afraid, entails not driving half way around the world every weekend. Needs me my studio time! So catch me at one of these shows if you wanna rock out once more this year, and then I shall be keeping you posted on the upcoming musics. My sincere love and thanks to you all! Godspeed.
YES! My utmost thanks to Shambhala Music Festival yet again for providing such a perfect looking and sounding environment full of the best kinds of people. Such killer vibes this year and some of my favorite sets from friends and new favorites that I've ever encountered at the festival in general. Thanks so much for having me and for providing the perfect environment to do my various rave experiments and performances. I really felt connected this year and had such a blast playing. Also, extreme appreciation to everyone that stayed up late with me on Thursday to check out the show. Did you get one of the hand made 101 swords? (They were really fun to make btw) If so, I've been having a hilarious time finding out stories of who got which one etc. Do you have some connection with the many ridiculous inside jokes and movie references on yours? Post you sword name and number in this thread and share a story if you got one. Thanks for being in my army. Damn, so much to say. Big smiles still. My most sincere thanks for the amazing times. Cheers to all involved. Yes.
Wow. Bass Coast Project. No Words... Should have sent.... a poet.... For a festival that really succeeds at one-uping itself every year, I think you jumped about 10 notches ahead with this one. So much fun and good vibes all weekend. Some of the all time best looking and sounding stages I've ever witnessed (and that seems putting it lightly somehow) All the friends. All the chunes. Damn. That was so rad. Im pretty floored. 9 billion thank you's to everyone that played any part in that entire production. So much appreciation. Love LWSD
IT BEGINS! Crazy Western Canada festival time is upon us. Kicking it off this weekend with Motion Notion, then Bass Coast, followed by Shambhala, and then Meme (Two sets, LWSD and Sick Bay with Phil Western) Also, recently added dates at Beaver Fest, Aurora Fest and finishing it up with Fozzy Fest. After that its a big touring break for me, so come rage out while you can. After that its studio time to finally get some releases done. (Thanks for the patients, I am but one human) Looking forward to seeing all you creative and wonderful people again. Can't wait to share what I been slaving on in the lab. Travel and party safe! See you soon. DO IT!
Thank You! I've been so busy getting ready for the rest of festival season I didn't notice my soundcloud tick over a quarter million plays! :O My utmost appreciation to you all for subjecting your precious eardrums to my various sounds. I know some people can put out a tune and get this many play in a day or whatever, but this really means a lot to me. I want you to know that. Thank you.
Well the first stage of the cross North American Tour is complete! Supreme thanks to Co-Pilot Dingo and the lovely Tim and Sarah of RimVisuals. That was quite the adventure. Extra special thanks to the heart warming people and staff of Esthetic Evolution for a truly magical finale to this part of the tour. What a fantastic place and wonderful group of people. My sincerest thanks to everyone that came out to see the shows on this trip. You all rule. Getting super stoked for Tall Tree Music Festival this weekend as the Western Canada festival shenanigans are gearing up! It's good to be home. Oh, and if you were wondering how far it is to drive from Vancity to Hallifax-NYC and back.... its 14,381km. :)
Really enjoying the craziness of NYC. Super cool to finally get to see this city. Appreciating the No-BS, brass-tax tour guide stylings of my old friend Devin Dirt. He and I are playing at Factory Studios in Brooklyn tomorrow night! Website (address at the bottom) is linked below. Come check it out! Just found out our talented friend Stickybuds is playing in Brooklyn tonight too! Say whaaaaa? Gonna peep that and get a feel for the vibe here. BC invasion commence!
Wow. I LOVE Halifax! That was such a fantastic time. Probably one of my all time favourite shows I've ever been fortunate enough to play. I really appreciate your kindness and general positive attitude out here on the East Coast. Sincere thanks for really making the end of my cross Canada tour a very special experience. Can't thank you enough. Also, an extra special thanks to the 4 guys n 1 gal crew that drove down from New Glasgow to see the show, managed to find my iPOD in a sea of empty beer bottles and were kind and honest enough to return it the next day. An 8000km drive home with no tunes would have been unacceptable. I couldn't believe it! Thank you for your honestly and awesomeness. Did I mention I love the East Coast? Sincere thanks all around. Ok, got a travel day off in Boston. Time to go see what's going on here. Cheers!
Finally made it to the Atlantic! Thanks to everyone that made it out in St.John, great times. VERY excited for Halifax tonight. I've heard a lot of the advance tickets have been snapped up BUT! there WILL be a bunch of door tickets too. The place is huge, and we wanna slam it. They have the biggest fog machine I've ever seen. Prepare for some serious wizardry with Rim Visuals on board! DO IT.
Tonight! LWSD and Rim Visuals LIVE in Montreal at the Cabaret Underworld. Because of the venue switch all the web promo will say Snak The Ripper is here tonight, which is also true, so you could come down early and double whammy it! However I assure you were are on after, about 11pm. At the venue now setting up. Friday in Saint John and Saturday in Halifax will proceed as scheduled. Thanks for your understanding. Merci!
A collection of clips from LWSD and Rim Visuals 2010/2011 shows, as well as some other fun memorable moments… Many thanks to all of the amazing people that have come out to see our little spectacle. We are, as always, committed to bringing you the most insane looking and sounding LIVE performance within our means. We also have lots of crazy plans for the future and would be honored to see you again. Sincere thanks for helping us do what we love. Cheers.

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
New article out by Alan Ranta:
Not only is King a joy to watch, his beats are unerringly raunchy, gnarly, techy and quirky, and his recent collaboration with Rim Visuals has culminated in a fully immersive concert experience.

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.
