Los Angeles musician Diamondstein creates sci-fi soundscapes that blend the lines between Detroit’s techno underworld and evocative soundtracks of independent film. Described as cinematic techno and ‘Deep Score’, this new artists’s dark and dramatic dance music is beautifully realized in his new music video for his first official release titled "Nat Sherman Arpeggiator".
"Nat Sherman Arpeggiator", the first track off Diamondstein's upcoming EP The Ridges, is a powerful, waltzing song that uses slithering synth sequences to create the ominous but spiritual atmosphere at the core of Diamondstein's music. The accompanying video, directed by Jason Michael Roberts, shows a physically pristine dancer transform into a technological deity. According to the director, "The video is about visualizing the whole process of trans-humanism, and giving a face to the spirit behind a conscious machine."
The Ridges EP is scheduled for September 23 release.
