This is our story...

Multifaceted producer, Blood Diamonds, has the rare, coveted ability to make (and play) music of all sorts; evident in the contrast between his Rap/Pop maiden release on OWSLA with Dominic Lord titled, “Barcode,” released in March and his latest offering released today titled Osaka — a two track sophomore EP on OWSLA portraying a more experimental side of the LA-based producer.

The title track features a multitude of punching stabs mirrored by soft, whispery vocal cuts and percussion reminiscent of Asia or the South Pacific. The B-side, “Apex,” follows in the footsteps of “Osaka,” with feathery vocals and a generous portion of bleeps and breaks throughout.

Also, coinciding with the Osaka EP today is Blood Diamonds’ takeover of OWSLA’s After Dark series on Mistajam’s BBC Radio 1xtra program. Part 4 of the relatively green radio show sees Blood Diamonds at his best, somehow finding a balance between grooves from the likes of Dusky, South London Ordinance, and George Fitzgerald and the more bassy styles of Juicy J, DJ Fresh & Diplo, and Danny Brown.
