Paper Diamond is once again hitting the road on his headling Night Vision Tour 2012.
After a packed summer of shows and festival appearances, Paper Diamond debuted his new video stage set-up at a recent hometown show at the Ogden Theater in Denver. Playing off the diamond motif inherent in Paper Diamond’s name, the light set-up blew the audience away as it provided the perfect accompaniment to Paper Diamond’s vibrant sound.
View the new stage setup in the below video.
The concept for the new stage set-up came from the idea of taking a common element, like a square, and turning it into something unique. Since many well known electronic artists utilize LED screens, Paper Diamond wanted to take the square video panels and turn them into something unique and reflective of his sound. Paper Diamond gathered the Elm & Oak team, and together they illustrated the design, which was finally built into fruition by Brown Note Productions. Through hands-on design on the part of Paper Diamond and cooperation and teamwork from other artists and designers (Ben Chaykin, Josh Holland, Ian Davis and more), the incredible structure was realized.
Coinciding with the tour and new stage setup, Paper Diamond has just released a new single titled “The 40 Thieves” that was initially covered by Jay-Z’s blog Life+Times.
Listing the genre of ”The 40 Thieves” as ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’, Paper Diamond’s Alex Botwin fuses elements of Trap, Dubstep, Big Bass and Hip Hop to craft a heavy yet bouncy club track. Give it a listen then download it for free via the SoundCloud widget!
