about

Diamonds is Mikkel Meyer’s fifth release, and his second on Rump.

His previous release, the nostalgic 303 & 808-based "Jolly EP" from 2014, gained great reviews around the globe plus airplay at the BBC.

After the release Mikkel Meyer joined the touring KUBE project with Rumpistol and Unkwon and now he's back with a release full of sparkling emotional acid tunes.

The title refers to diamonds as a precious gemstone and a profitable object to simile or synthesize. Inspired by this strange nature of the stone, Meyer names his tunes after different imitations of the mythical rock.

On the "Diamonds EP", Mikkel Meyer searches for the dance floor with acid in his pocket and beats on his mind. The orchestra is stripped down to music-machines of the 80’s, they are modified so yesterdays sound is all but a shimmering glow on the modern tracks. The result is melodic and full of emotions with a hint of electrified American new folk. Like Bonnie "Prince" Billy if he had switched his guitar and voice for synths and drum machines.
