Kabam! I am very pleased to announce that I am nearing completion of my 3rd full length studio album entitled "Squashing Machine" due out late March/April on East Van Digital! It features the beautiful original artwork of Tara Handelman with photography and digital processing/layout by Vasho Pekar.
To celebrate, there shall also be a tour announced soon! Featuring the return of the one of a kind madness that is RimVisuals with some new surprises were working on to explode more brains. More details on that soon, but were excited to see some faces and places we haven't seen in far too long.
Lastly, I have moved into an exciting new studio space and although there will still be plenty of shows, I am using this new opportunity to focus on finishing up a huge back catalog of music in order to not make you patient, wonderful people wait another 3 years for a release. There will be many other EP's, albums, give-a-ways, singles and side projects cranking out tunes so this album is only the beginning! Expect a lot more music from a wide variety of genres from LWSD within the next 36 months...
I am, as always, extremely grateful for your support and interest and really hope you'll like the new record. Can't wait to hear what you think! Tour kicks of in Vancity March 27th! More info soon. Much love and happy squashing.
enhance..... ENHANCE! More info, less teasing tomorrow. :)
BIG EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENTS COMING SOON THIS WEEK AND NEXT! I am super excited.... Here's a tease for now... watch this page. Can't wait to share with you. Cheers!
Happy Holidays! Or Vacation Time! Or time to wear silly sweaters and see movies with lots of CGI! Well however you spend your years end I hope you enjoy yourselves. And hey! If you fancy it, feel free to join me for some dancey fun times too! Excited to be playing this Friday for the first time in Golden BC, then Boxing Day in Calgary AB, and finally, drum roll please, NYE at Rhythm and Alps Festival in New Zealand! If you miss these ones, worry not, its only a quick run of shows to end the year, and then there are..... "plans" mwahaha.... More on that in due time. Hope to see you soon regardless and thanks so much for the awesome year. Cheers!
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.
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.

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. The next album is hot on its heals as well as other surprises coming. Sincere thanks to East Van Digital for getting the tunes out there Woohoo! Digital Era!
