Baby Wants a "Dube" and need a snack? No, I don't smoke, don't need to listening to Paper Diamond's new song "Black Rose", which premiered via Hypetrak on January 29th, 2014.

"Black Rose" one of the songs on Paper Diamond's debut mix for "Diplo and Friends" seems to make the harshness of a disasterous day slip away -- if you are at home listening, get up out of your chair and let the music course through your body until it becomes the lifeforce that makes every muscle gently sway and move to the beat.

"Black Rose" is among one of PD's recent releases that aired on BBC Radio 1's "Diplo and Friends" mix last weekend. PD's new "sexy" edit of "Jasmine" by Jai Paul, kicked off the second hour.

(Personally, I've never heard of Jai Paul, until Paper Diamond's edit. When I tried to find personal information on this artistic genious, the website literally came up "white". Hmmm.... Anyway, check out Jai Paul's Jasmine demo on SoundCloud, which, in my opinion, is actually more sensously sexy than PD's edit. Sorry PD!)

Alex B wrapped up by giving a nod to the man himself with his latest "Revolution" remix released on Diplo's Revolution Remix EP -- out now on Mad Decent.


This year Paper Diamond is headlineing 30+ date Cold Crush Tour as well as debuting his Las Vegas monthly DJ residency starting March 26th.

'On this tour Paper Diamond will be experimenting with new gear by incorporating creative beatmaking with an acclaimed sound library on Maschine Studio into his live stage productions. During 2014, fans can expect to hear a plethora of new tunes, some featuring never-before-heard collaborations during his recent LA studio sessions with various writers, producers and singers."

Life is full of wonderment and surprises, all of which can be observed as a living form of art, a giant colorful canvas full of complex identities and cultures. For me, the combination of Journalism and Anthropology, best describe my personality.
