Boomkat Product Review:
Miami - home to an ocean of thugs, pawn shops, strip clubs and lowslung cars that make the ground shake. A place so hot it can make your head fry, and just when you thought you had the Metatronix sound pegged, in steps diamond ice. This is a simply amazing record, fusing together two genres that have hitherto not been fused with amazing results : Jiggy beats with a classic Detroit insistance on only using the deepest chords possible. If you can imagine Timbaland fighting it out with Carl Craig you may well be a bit confused but will have an idea of just how good this is. Having lived for 2 years at the infamous 90.9 fm tha bomb, one of miami’s pioneering pirate stations, Diamond befriended bass legends such as ghetto style djs, uncle al and jam pony express, as well as supersoul, the guiding hand behind metatronix and producer of ‘funk 4 da trunk’. These instrumentals are an ode to bass, the monster stereo systems and the cars that push them. Their originality and amazing jiggy depth should be investigated without delay. Awesome.
