DJ Chase Dobson hits the road with Mike Posner
Analog Space regular and former resident Lipgloss DJ c.db.sn, aka Chase Dobson, is heading to Los Angeles this week, after landing a gig with pop and R&B star Mike Posner. Dobson will be keyboard and Ableton Live technician on Posner's upcoming tour, working behind the scenes during shows to make sure backing tracks and vocals stay, well, on track.
The Tampa, Florida transplant has been hard at work on his own material since stepping down from his residency at Lipgloss, but says he's ready to hit the road. "It's really about time I put my skill set to good use in a professional way," says the DJ and soundman of the change from center stage to back of house.
Dobson has been working professionally on the back end of sound engineering since 1997, but shifted his focus to DJing when he moved to Denver a few years ago. After returning from Los Angeles, Dobson will be in town for a few days before shipping off to Philadelphia for rehearsals and five weeks on the road with Posner (tour dates listed below). After that Dobson says he'll be keeping his options open work-wise, but Denver is still his home.
