Local electro artist Diamondback Kid and his download label Diamondback Recordings are going from strength to strength. In the last few weeks, various artist release ‘The Elements’ has hit the top six on the Juno Download electro charts and the label’s latest release, ‘Decoding System’ by Italian producer Giuseppe Mereu has almost tipped electro legend Jimmy Edgar off the top spot!
As far as his own productions go, DBK tracks have been snapped up for release on vinyl by the legendary Streetsounds label for their ‘Nu Electro 4’ album, by German mega-label Dominance for their latest ‘Electrofunk Resistance’ album (out 2nd November) and by USA label Devine Disorder for their forthcoming chilled- electro compilation ‘Alternate Realities 2’.
In addition, DBK has been proud to have been included on a very special picture disc remix project released on Electro Avenue records. This disc features 7 remixes of Beat Street tune ‘Baptize The Beat’ by The System (who are currently making a big comeback in the States), including the Diamondback Kid Remix – which also features a massive guitar solo by local boy Charlie Waddington!
The Diamondback Recordings label is expanding and now has 5 artists, including artists from Italy, UK and Norway, with styles ranging from electro to breakbeat to ambient. All tunes are available from Diamondback Bandcamp, iTunes, Juno, Amazon etc.
