Still in the fall air is the burning range of colors and temperatures. Offering up a warm reception to the pending winter come Canadian artists Cosmic JD and Daniel [Dick] Diamonds. Joining us from the frosted north comes Deep North boss-man and 530 Techno/Bad Animal artist Dick Diamonds who sometimes moonlights under his various projects as Hermans and Jerry Riggs. Daniel teams up with Cosmic JD from the stunningly otherwordly group Elextra. We have been big fans of both Elextra’s and Daniel output and please to welcome them to the label. The focus on instrumentation and experimentation executed with supreme dancability offered in Tropicaux has an energy all its own.
Harmonious Discord 036 Cosmic JD and Dick Diamonds – Tropicaux
1. Tropicaux Feat. Botsi
2. Bronco Perdido
The first collaboration with singer Botsi offers a disco tinged dance workout. Pervasive percussion dances around floating pad swells as vocal hums lift the levels around a quickly building synthesizer story. Occasional breaks into broken beat inspired verses keep the neurons firing; a cerebral journey into synthesizer music. Bronco Perdido flowers from a different depth as subdued pads and tones bellow through echo chambers. Bass litters a dubby percussive cadence driven conversation between electronic pepperings and low passed atmospheres. Driven even further under the depths with legacy drum machine sequences we tune into a dialog of a lost soul.
