David Miles Huber is a 4X Grammy-nominated producer and musician in the electronic dance and surround-sound genres, whose music has sold over the million mark. His dance performance style is energized and balanced out by lush beats and live acoustic instruments that combine to create a “Zen-meets-Tech Experience”. His latest music and collaborations can be heard at www.davidmileshuber.com.
DMH has performed all over the US and Central Europe using his in-studio tools (Steinberg Nuendo), on-stage performance tools (Ableton Live) and wireless iPad controller (zero-debug Touchable3). It’s been said that he plays a “mean computer”, iPad, MIDI toys, ethnic flutes, vocals and any kind of percussion he can get his hands on … then he combines these into a complex project that is not DJ’ed, but is actually performed live.

Those who know me know that my site & logo used to be 51bpm. In fact, if you type in www.51bpm.com, my new site name will show up. So … why 51bpm? One of the first pieces of gear that I acquired was my Raven synth from quasimidi. It’s definetely meant to tear out in a German techno-style at 130+ bpm. However, being the downtempo guy that I am, I cranked the bpm down to as low as it goes (which happens to be 51bpm)… damn, does it sound lush, full and very “analogy”! Since then, I’ve gotten a few other pieces of quasimidi gear and the bpm name stuck with me. Even though I now work at higher tempos, I still have a soft spot for well-crafted chill beats. Coincidently, the “51″ works very well with my passion for working in surround… and thus 51bpm.com was born… and then retired.
The following are a series of video interviews that were shot at SAE Berlin in 2013.
Had a great time with my radio DJ brother at WECI, working the mics, playing music, etc… at 6:30 in the morning! Here’s a fun interview that he did with me.
My talented brother also made a painting of his kid brother getting his first Grammy nomination … How awesome is that!
