Video game design student by day, producer by night Blood Diamonds is back with a new EP on the Skrillex-founded OWSLA imprint next week and we have the first taste of it here. Blood Diamonds has worked with vocalists in the past, notably Dominic Lord (nee. A$AP Dom) and pal Grimes, but new song Apex is an instrumental, its melodies shining through a sound design of clicks, glitches, science fiction synths and all sorts of vocal sample contortions. Bright stuff – the track will appear on the b-side of an extra special 7" vinyl.
If you fancy a blast from the past, check out Blood Diamonds' Dummy Mix, dating back to 2011.
OWSLA will release 'Osaka' on October 1st 2013. You can hear Blood Diamonds' mix on OWSLA After Dark on BBC Radio 1 on Monday Sept 30th 2013.
