Diamond Vampires "The Mineral Room"
- Words: Thomas Rees
Beginning with a minute of brooding synths and bells that could have been lifted directly from Silent Shout, then moving towards a more Jan Hammer circa Miami Vice vibe, Diamond Vampires' "The Mineral Room" eventually becomes a full-blown dark balearic track. Watery vocoded elements, killer kicks, and some secondary synth harmonies that scream late-night rave round out the piece, cementing the group's place among the non-chillwave crowd of newer electronic musicians making people dance.
