NEWS: Diplo’s Revolution Remixed by Paper Diamond & 2014 Residency Announecment With Wynn Las Vegas



Coming into existence in the early 2000s, the Wynn Properties in Las Vegas have since become synonymous with all-star performer residences. Each year the properties, which include Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst, and XS, announce a new residency roster that raises the bar for nightclubs around the globe. With past rosters featuring names such as Diplo, Bassnectar, Dillon Francis, Eric Prydz and many more, the Wynn family will now be welcoming Paper Diamond for an 8-month monthly residency beginning Wednesday, March 26th, 2014.
Gearing up for a busy new year, Paper Diamond remixes Revolution (feat. Faustix & Imanos and Kai) for current Wynn resident Diplo’s “Revolution Remix EP” out now on Mad Decent. This track comes as a part of a remix package where Diplo’s title trap anthem is reworked by a handful of talented producers including RUN DMT, Sluggers, and Panic City. With the addition of deeper drops and new skillfully-constructed synth leads, Paper Diamond unleashes his unique sound on the already popular track.

Alex’s debut Las Vegas residency will occur just weeks after his North American Cold Crush Tour comes to an end. This two month tour features stops in over 20 different states, including one at New York City‘s famous Webster Hall on February 7th, 2014. Later this month he’ll be dropping a mix for “Diplo and Friends” on BBC Radio 1 this Sunday, January 26th. Tune in to hear exclusive tracks from friends like Zed’s Dead, Two Fresh, Antiserum, Colta, along with some of his unreleased productions.

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. On his March LP release Paragon”, Paper Diamond featured a wide array of talent including the adored pop indie singer Angela McCluskey, the widely embraced production duo Christian Rich, plus CherubBukuGavin TurkeJ Fresh, and Protohype. His fans will certainly have a lot of new material to discover.


The dynamics of Paper Diamond’s live performance makes every show a unqiue experience. Alex explains how he improvises each set live every night to give his fans a truly unique experience.

“I’m using my iPad on stage to control two computers, one has Ableton to play the music, which then sends a MIDI signal to the second computer, where I can control all of the LEDs and live visuals on stage that will capture the nonstop energy of my set. So basically, I get to represent myself in not just a musical manner, but I get to provide an overall visual experience for my fans as well.”
Supporting artists playing on tour such as LoudPvckBranchezGent & Jawns, and Manic Focus, were all hand picked by Alex who takes note that they each share a similar philosophy.“We all love the same things, we like to play great music and have a great time, and I wanted to bring along good music from artists that I personally enjoy and respect.”

Bursting onto the trap scene in 2012, the Los Angeles based duo, LoudPvak consists of DJ producers Kenny Beats and Ryan Marks, who have been blowing up with their big room bassy style and remixes from the likes of Kill the NoiseAutoErotique and Nervo.

Paper Diamond says of LoudPvak’s style, “The tricks they do with production really intrigues me.”

You can always hear a choice cut from Gent & Jawns’ during Paper Diamond’s sets, who have become an unstoppable force in the world of club music. The release of their now classic Moombahton anthem Vibrate landed them remixes for DatsikBare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with NadastromTorro Torro and JWLS. Playing on the tour’s first leg, is Buzzworthy New York native producer Branchez, who recently bonded with Alex during Zed’s Dead “Altered States Tour” and has his own fresh take on blending jazz, slow burning rap beats and synths that oozes soulful timbre. Manic Focus also joins the crew with his energized electro hip-hop filled with deep bass lines and melodious grooves. Stay tuned for more artists and dates to be announced on “The Cold Crush Tour”.
