paper diamond in 2012

Though (aka ) has been a mainstay in the electronic music scene for years, his talent and entity continues to develop each year. Fiercely creative and tirelessly dedicated, has had his hand in many endeavors throughout the years including but not limited to: co-founding Elm & Oak, a multi-faceted record label/design studio based in , CO, and being one third of the ever-funky (though unfortunately disbanded) .

In 2013, released his white-hot sophomore album Paragon. He delivers a solid mix of the vibed-out bass music and upbeat glitch-hop we have come to expect from this multi-talented producer. Never one to rest on his laurels, ’s expertise and skill as a producer has blossomed with this release—the sky is the limit for Paper Diamond.

To support this terrific album, Paper Diamond is beginning the 32-stop “Cold Crush Tour” this Friday at Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood, CA. Every time Alex B comes to town, his performance has grown in orders of magnitude since the last. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for this tour. His feel-good gangster sound is the perfect soundtrack for you and your friends to bask in your own swagger for a night. Check out his dates to see when he’s coming your way and get warmed up with his “Tour Mix 2014” on SoundCloud.

Oh yeah, and here is a cute picture of Alex B’s dog Otis aka Puppy Diamond (via Instagram – @paperdiamond):
