"DJ Diamond is 24 year old KARLIS GRIFFIN from the West Side of Chicago. He has been producing music since the age of 13 and DJing since 20, heading the 'Flight Muzik' clique of footwork producers. You might recall his two tracks from our 'Bangs & Works Vol.1' footwork compilation of last year. In addition he's also released several mix cds in Chicago, but this, his first international album showcases his unique style of footwork music. DJ Diamond is a unique producer with his own distinct style and an unusual ear for unexpected sonic and rhythmic combinations within the footwork template. Often he thoroughly edits samples into tiny trance-inducing, techno-like stabs. Combining this with a penchant for neon synths and loose, broken drums (that are often more effect-laden and freeform than those of of his peers) and you have a sound which has an intriguing, deeper, dreamlike feel."
