(2011, Planet Mu Records) USA, Chicago.
I discovered DJ Diamond randomly. Hail to random !
First of all, I was attracted by his terrific artwork (one of my favorite in 2011).
You play the CD and What a slap ! (Uh)
I started being bored with electro music these days and Dj Diamond created his strong identity.
He offers us a kind of micro-sampling and on the top, instead of adding heavy kick/bass (to be in the current trend), he adds some fine glitchy rhythmic patterns (Horns).
Then, he just plays with the sample (like in Speakerz’n’Tonguez or Pop The Trunk)
I really appreciate the Santigold sample in Go Hard.
I can’t wait to listen to his next record.
