Paper Diamond’s Shining in 2014


Colorado based producer and music wunderkind Alex Botwin continues to chart into new audio territory with his project Paper Diamond – and the voyage continues in 2014 with his headlining North American tour kicking off on January 23rd and a residency starting at the Wynn.

Controlling not only the sonics, but also the lights, Botwin’s show architect approach makes each event a truly unique experience.  On stage, Diamond says “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.”

Hot off of the Altered St8s tour, where Paper Diamond served as main support for Zeds Dead in over 35 cities, Diamond returns to some of his favorite markets as the headliner with a slate of hand selected opening acts, including LA’s LOUDPVCK, Branchez, Gents & Jawns and Manic Focus that will make each show trap-tastic.  With more special guests to be announced and possibly some featured vocalist appearances (possibly some collaborators from the Paragon EP?) – the shows should be parties celebrating not just Botwin’s accomplishments and music, but some of the brightest up and comers in the scene.
