Diamond Style
Paper Diamond - Levitate [Pretty Lights]
Paper Diamond - Steady Swinging [Pretty Lights]

Today I’d like to introduce to you an artist that has been causing quite a scene in the realm of glitch hop. If you’ve liked what I’ve written about Pretty Lights thus far, then you’re going to love this! Paper Diamond first started out in Colorado, as have many of today’s other fresh new electro and glitch hop talent. Pretty soon he released a ton of productions that caught the eyes of, you guessed it, Pretty Lights. Soon after, he released his debut album, called Levitate, on Pretty Lights’ label. Since then, he’s played at places like Snowball Festival and Coachella.

After giving Levitate a thorough listen-through, I’m very impressed with what he’s done. Songs like Snowball and All Green Lights take it slow, while others like Levitate are grimier and deeper. His sound is more progressive and more focused on creepy-crawly melodies than loud, percussive sounds. I’m going to leave you with two of my favorites on the album–em>Levitate and Steady Swinging. For the rest of the album, check out Pretty Lights’ label page for a free download (please donate!).
