Boomkat Product Review:
“Debuting with an album we have been hyped to release for some time now, a new artist for Dream Catalogue in 2016 is Diamondstein, whose work brings classical musicality, the macabre ideas of metal and next level electronic instrumentation to create a unique sound that pulls various ideas from synthwave, techno and film scores and moulds them into a unique holistic vision for an album unlike anything you will have ever heard.
If 2814’s ‘Birth Of A New Day’ provides a shimmery glimpse into a romantic and melancholic future, Diamondstein’s ‘The Ridges’ takes us on a 40 minute trip through the dark underbelly of that world, where the people who live for the night lurk, where lust and sin reigns over love and hope. The Ridges brings a subtle sense of danger and terror to Dream Catalogue that has not been present in our two year history of releasing dream music, but something that is very much a part of dreaming life.
Diamondstein has created a score for a cyberpunk dystopia without the bright neon lights. It is at times savage and loud and at times sparse and moody. Overall, it is a trip into a dark future and one that takes the idea of “dream music” to the next level.”
