Hailing from Oakland's Dimond District is DIMOND SAINTS, the new collaborative project from West Coast Acid Crunk pioneer AN-TEN-NAE and soundscape savvy, melodic bass beat master RELEECE. Their first single 'We Diamonds' took Hypem by storm as it climbed to the #4 slot and their industrial, gritty remix of Lorde's 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World' catapulted up to the #3 position. This week, they're preparing to unleash the first volume of their three chapter debut album Shingetsu, which translates from Japanese to 'New Moon'.
The first installment, 'Chapter One: The Rising' is a deliciously deep and sultry exploration into bass music. Starting on February 10th, the duo will be teasing our ear buds with their signature grimy, glorious bass. Single by single, the album will be made available as a free download on their Soundcloud. Yesterday's release was the intricately layered and hauntingly beautiful 'Take Me To The Moon' and today, they're coming at you with 'The Rising', the album's atmospheric and emotive glitch riddled title track.
