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!

Thanks so much Ottawa and Toronto! Great times. Had a real blast. IMPORTANT NOTE! Due to a double booking issue the Montreal show has been moved to Cabaret Underworld still on this Wednesday. It has NOT been cancelled as the previous promoter posted. If you know anyone that had heard the show was cancelled please relay this info to them. Many thanks!

BOOM! Check out the new LWSD and RimVisuals live experience teaser trailer shot and edited in HD by The Lotus Eaters! It also features some preview clips of new LWSD forthcoming music! Rim just walked in the door here in Ottawa and were kicking it all off tomorrow! Eastern Canada! You ready for this?!?

Phew! Looking forward to putting my hand in the Pacific Ocean and driving this great country of ours all the way to high five the Atlantic. It might sound cheesy, but this has literally been a dream of mine from when I was about 14 rocking out in my bedroom to metal and the Wipeout XL soundtrack...

There you have it! If you need further info, I will try and gather event pages etc and post them in here in the next couple days. I don't know a ton of people East of Alberta so if you know someone that would dig the show tag them in here or share this with em, I'd love the help! Really looking forward to this. Hope to see you all soon and again very many thanks for your kind support.
Love LWSD

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.

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 :D Zomg. I can’t wait…

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.
