New video of Paper Diamond & Christian Rich single ‘XIX’ ft Angela McCluskey
Bonnaroo is exclusively premiering a free mp3 download of the new Paper Diamond & Christian Rich single ’XIX’ ft Angela McCluskey from Paper Diamond’s forthcoming EP titled “Paragon”, set for release on April 16.
The song is a collaboration between Paper Diamond who is performing at Bonnaroo and LA based production duo Christian Rich and features the Scottish vocalist Angela Mccluskey of Telepopmuzik, making for a truly sensual and downbeat listening experience.
The collaborative production on “XIX” resulted in a velvety, expansive cut that is dark and nightlife-approved, laquered with glossy tones and pulsing rhythms. “XIX” oozes post- electronic minimalism, and highlights Mccluskey’s aching vocals. Think dark rooms with flashing lights, conversations shrowded in clouds of smoke, a dance party in slow motion.
Talented producers and twins Taiwo ‘Christian’ Hassan and Kehinde ‘Rich’ Hassan, dubbed Christian Rich, are on the same magical, symbiotic wavelength in the studio. The brotherly duo has an impressive year behind them, producing tracks like Earl Sweatshirt’s stuttering, lo-fi cut “Chum” plus collabs with Rye Rye and N.E.R.D.
Check back tomorrow for the premiere of the official music video for “XIX” on the Bonnaroo365 youtube channel.
