D.V.S* (aka Derek VanScoten) is a Brooklyn based Guitarist/ Producer. Some people have used the terms "Brightstep," Glo-Fi", and "Soulgaze" to describe his music. He warms hearts with his melodies, and dancefloors with his Beats.
...Over the last year, D.V.S* has spent considerable time on the road with the likes of Bluetech, Big Gigantic, Ana Sia, Beats Antique, Boombox and Alex B, Papadosio, and EOTO.
No stranger to the live band scene, he has also performed with DJ Logic, Devotchka, and The Motet.
In 2011, D.V.S* will release a new full length album in 4 increments at dvsmusic.net, Each phase will unleash a few more tunes, and a new segment of the album's artwork by Guillaume Bonte (Paris, France). He will also release a "Remix of the Month" available at lostinsound.org
Brian Haas of JFJO says “"The D.V.S* album, 'Before I Sing', combines beautiful melodies, super fat beats, jazz guitar power, and lush horn harmonies into true, relevant psychedelic trip hop. The vocal samples are tasteful, emotional and spiritual colors that take the human voice into a melodic fragment world reminiscent of late Miles Davis trumpet work. The record tells a story from beginning to end, has a musical arc from first track to last track and employs real theme and development within each composition. Very positive sounds from a unique, new voice in modern music....highly recommended."
Supersillyus is an electronic musician and producer based in Allston, MA. His music is a genre-bending adventure through psychedelic dub. He has opened for acts such as Hallucinogen, Conspirator, Archnemesis, EOTO, DJ Logic, and Alex B (of Pnuma Trio). His first full length release, Grampaspaceshuttle, tickled the ears of the electronic community, earning him a spot on LostinSound.org's Top 5 Newcomer Albums of 2010.
He has spent... the past year and three months meticulously crafting his second record, “Tesselations,” which will be released this March on Base Trip Records. The result is an epic double album that will allow listeners to explore highly evolved and extensively layered soundscapes while shaking it to a tasty mix of tribal drums, swirling synths, and the occasional marimba solo.
To give fans a taste of things to come, he is releasing ME(meta)TATRON, an exclusive preview of "Tesselations" which features three tracks off the album as well as a remix, and a bonus track which won't be found anywhere else.

Over the course of 2010 his repertoire has evolved into an exciting musical collection with a very distinct theme and mood. Wrapping up the year playing along side long time inspiration, Eskmo, made 2010 a very humbling year for David. Now in 2011, EXIN has a new album awaiting release and tons more material on its way!
