South Diamonds is a group of DJs and producers from the south of France made up by Nikko Alonzo & DJ Major.
When they met in 2010, Nikko Alonzo & DJ Major discovered that they shared the same passion and that they had the same musical tastes. Each had started mixing in a hip-hop style and their attraction for deep bass and powerful melodies made them evolve progressively towards a house sound. With Nikko Alonzo ́s experience in production and DJ Major ́s experience in live mix, they complement each other in these two areas.
They have already mixed in prestigious clubs in the south of France (Monaco, Cannes, Bordeaux, Perpignan, …) and have completed a tour in New Caledonia in early 2011 where they ignited the dancefloors of all the biggest clubs in Noumea (Pop Light, Krystal, Omao …) combining their performances with dancers, fire-eater and drummers.
In their explosive sets they mix different styles of house music by incorporating bootlegs and remixes of their creations. They love to mix sounds from various backgrounds to reach the most people. Because of the atmosphere that prevails in their show, their slogan became “We take the club & put it back to the front!"
Their bootlegs are recognized on the Internet, and have been downloaded many times, posted on many music blogs and played by DJs around the world.
Their track “Buy Now – For Sale (South Diamonds Re-edit)” has been selected by the international DJ Kid Massive in his top ten tracks and played by Cazzette in the podcast of one of the biggest UK label CR2 Records in episode 37.
They have remixed the title “Play the game” for the group White Noise Machine released in the label Exclusive Records.
Their first EP “Dreamcatcher” is signed on the London label Stereo FX and distributed since September 4th on all legal download platforms.
But South Diamonds does not intend to stop after such a good start. They are finalizing several other pieces that will soon be released, signed on other European labels…
