Our Favourite DSD Tracks : — Album available in: DSD 64fs | Stereo and/or Multichannel

The International HiFi Show Melbourne is a big supporter of the audio format Direct Stream Digital (DSD) and this year many exhibitors showcase their DSD-capable Players & DACs. We decided to reach out to NativeDSD.com – the largest DSD content provider and available worldwide – to see how we could promote DSD music at our show. The result: we were asked to create our own DSD album. Four record labels – Navis Classics, Just Listen, Sketti Sandwich Productions and Channel Classics Records – gave us a carte blanche to pick our favourite tracks!
NativeDSD.com is also home to 39 other record labels, with more labels entering as we speak. This Northern Hemisphere summer of 2016 (June/July), NativeDSD will reach the 1000 DSD Albums milestone. In the meantime the amount of DSD-friendly DACs & Players are growing rapidly too. This spreadsheet shows all of the available DSD capable DACs and Players, as well as a list of suitable playback software and all the sites where DSD music is available: some of the recommended DACs Players are available at: www.nativedsdgear.com

Back to the music, we hope you will enjoy this custom made HiFi Show Melbourne DSD album called: "Our Favourite DSD Tracks" — and if you do, make sure to come back for more..

David Elias

David’s original work and contributions as a pioneer in the unsigned artist’s world of self-produced CD’s put him in front of the folk community nationally and worldwide at an early Internet age (1995). He achieved numerous and frequent #1 charting on various large musical web communities such as MP3.com, Besonic, SoundClick, Mixposure, and IndieHeart.com (currently #1 artist for most plays) as well as others.

Not restricting his exposure to online outlets (breaking ground with CD Baby in 1998 and eventually Amazon, iTunes and 50+ others) David also attracted the discriminate audiophile community as an innovator in hi-def 5.1 surround sound recordings (SACD’s “The Window”, 2003 and “Crossing”, 2005). This met with industry recognition for excellence, including the Brutus award from Positive Feedback Online for both SACD’s.

David’s songwriting achieved early recognition from the likes of Billboard magazine (honorable mention folk award in 1998) and hundreds of reviews and comments online from fans, musicians and industry professionals. He has been compared to many great songwriters ranging from Jim Croce to Nick Drake to Tom Petty to Dan Hicks to Arlo Guthrie to Bruce Cockburn, Paul Simon, Dylan, Neil Young, among numerous others. His productions continue to be recognized for their outstanding articulation and impact, both lyrically, musically and sonically. He has indeed been referred to as both musician’s musician and a songwriter’s songwriter.

It is somewhat challenging to try to characterize the scope and impact of David’s work either chronologically or in a complete fashion. Working as an independent artist for 15 years, he has been part of the dawn of many new discoveries in music and DIY approaches to sustaining art. Performing in the vicinity of 1000 shows, give or take, since 1994 and teaming up with dozens of different casts of characters from the deep roots of the Irish and Scottish to the quietude or rants of Americana and folk to the eclectic, bluegrass, rock and pop realms of those such as Jane Siberry (Issa), Sally Van Meter, and Roger Powell, David has spun many homegrown musical tales for the environment, local education and businesses, benefits galore, art shows, fairs and festivals, warehouses and lofts, beach parties, pubs and eateries, music halls and local cafes not to mention his own 8 released recordings and endless other collaborations. Perhaps it is summarized best as one fan online wrote: “…music for the heart and soul”.
