Paper Diamond showcases versatility in new Diplo and Friends Mix
Homegrown Colorado-based producer Paper Diamond took over the BBC airwaves on Diplo‘s famed Saturday night studio session to deliver an impressive hour-long mix that weaves through chillwave, trap, and hip-hop sounds. Born from the Pretty Lights school of production, Paper Diamond has begun to establish himself as a producer to be reckoned with, affirmed by this flawless mix.
After conquering stages from HARD Summer in Los Angeles to Lights All Night in Dallas and so many in between, Paper Diamond has proven his versatile ability to immerse the listener in a wide range of genre-bending sounds. Diplo himself asserts praise for Colorado’s favorite son saying, “every festival in the world is not complete without Paper Diamond.”
The mix bounces and bumps through various tracks and edits from premier producers and promising up-and-coming acts alike, all while seamlessly tying in Paper Diamond’s own distinct downtempo synth work. Belching bubbles of bass between tracks from Cashmere Cat to What So Not, this mix reflects Paper Diamond’s multifaceted skill set at the decks. Handpicking heavy selections from Milo and Otis, Protohype, 12th Planet, and Dillon Francis among others, Paper Diamond’s Diplo and Friends mix is a bass music odyssey marked with his unmistakable trip-hop groove.
