Usher – “Climax” (Paper Diamond Remix)
Exclusively Premiered on RCRD LBL Today

“Paper Diamond’s sound has the capacity to make a packed dancefloor vibe as one.”
– Huffington Post
“Can We Go Up” offers a choppy dance anthem, complete with Hoover synths and electonic strings, but rearranged for a hyper dance floor.”
– Interview Magazine
Paper Diamond, Botwin is helping to shape a sound and culture in Colorado and beyond to a genre that continues to flourish in many of its flavors-electronic music.”
– Glide
“You’ll love PD’s unique fresh vibe, giving that electronic punch yet mainting that hip hop swagger.“
– This Song Is Sick
“The Boulder based producer is an all out gunslinger when it comes to unloading clock stopping soundscapes from his massive collection of fully loaded, bass filled double barrels… He has crafted a sound that is incredibly unique, yet still perfectly exemplifies the music that is being unleashed from his respective movement. This is defined by a charismatic hip-hop mentality that combines so well with Botwin’s soulful bass lines and energetic drum patterns, which are like instant remedies to anyone tuned in.” 
– The Untz
“He combines pop and bass in a way that compromises the integrity and quality of neither. It’s the logical conclusion to the unison of mainstream and subculture sounds many artists seem to be moving towards to but haven’t quite been able to achieve. Paper Diamond excels at setting a sonic atmosphere through the way the sculpts his songs alone.” 
– Salacious Sound
“I can honestly say I’m impressed with his skill as a moombahton producer.”
– Less Than 3

“Paper Diamond’s hip-hop flavored beats build faster than Amish factory workers, and his songs have a healthy bass infusion that are never useful for mellow time with grandma. In other words, WE LOVE IT.” 
– Swaager
Paper Diamond is offering up a free new remix, exlusively premiered on RCRD LBL today, June 25. As RCRD LBL put it, the Usher-smooth, Diplo-produced anthem “Climax” has now been refitted by Paper Diamond, the latest wind beneath Mad Decent’s wings. This “Climax” is one of tantric proportions, ladled with stuttering mist, distorted R&B moans and barn burning moombahton beats. You can download the track HERE. 
Paper Diamond is the newest edition to Diplo’s Mad Decent label, with his brand of music fitting in nicely with his new label mates Major Lazer, Crookers and Rusko, among many others. His new EP entitled Wavesight was released May 3, and showcases Paper Diamond’s talent for incredible bass, electronic, and hip-hop styles. 
MTV recently premiered the video for “Turn the Lights Off,” featuring a collaboration with New Orleans based singer songwriter Nasimiyu. Check out the video HERE
Colorado native Paper Diamond has an extensive background in making beats that are a blend of hip-hop, bass music, electro, all with a whiff of ganja smoke blowing through it. He has a kind of raw energy and dramatic anticipation that only a seasoned producer can incite. His signature driving beats and bass grab onto you while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. 

Paper Diamond is also continuing his progression across the great expanse of America, taking his beats through the summer. He will be making appearences at several major festivals, includingElectric Forest, What The Festival?!, Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo.
