DIAMOND VERSION - CI (LP)


incl. download "Diamond Version's debut album pairs blistering electronic rhythms, deconstructed techno and dread static with clipped slogans borrowed from advertising and marketing, in both lyrics and track titles such as 'Science For A Better Life', 'Access To Excellence' and 'Raising The Bar'. This is the collaborative project between two of the most groundbreaking, experimental and visionary creators in modern music and, although Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai have worked closely together since founding Raster-Noton in 1996, it wasn't until they formed Diamond Version that they started working together as a duo. For the debut album, Diamond Version came up with an unusual list of possible vocal collaborators. "We tried to find unpredictable vocalist collaborations - something that you would not think of in the first place, so it didn't feel streamlined. We wanted to break a certain kind of logic.". As well as Neil Tennant of Pet Shops Boys, guest vocalists on the album include musician and poet Leslie Winer and Kyoka - a Raster-Noton recording artist." (label info)
