[SOTD] Paper Diamond’s “From Now Till…”

03/14/2011

Paper Diamond is the latest member of the Pretty Lights Record Label. His style is a mix of breakbeats, spacey synths and some hard bumps along the way. In his debut EP, Levitate, Paper Diamond drops eight solid tracks as a good indicator of what’s to come, but one track stands above the rest.

“From Now Till…” was the first single that Paper Diamond released just before the EP released back in late January. It’s stuck with me since, unlike the other tracks, because it keeps you engaged. Yeah, the rest is still worth a listen and tops many up-n-coming electronic artists, but eventually fell into “background music” for me. His style is similar to Pretty Lights, retrofitting great voices from the past into a new world, electronic sound.

If you wanna cop his full 8-track EP, head over to PL’s Record Label and take a look around. The label has a pretty good chance of becoming a top electronic label if it finds half the talent Pretty Lights has.
