Lane 8 – Diamonds feat. Solomon Grey
Two of his originals landed spots on Anjunadeep’s latest (and massively successful) compilation, ‘Without You’ and ‘Diamonds feat. Solomon Grey‘. Diamonds was premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Annie Mac and was a stand out track on Anjunadeep 06. Now we finally get to hear the track in all its unmixed glory.
Diamonds begins with a plucky and percussion beat, with some retro elements, and quickly ascends into an uplifting build up supported by cascading chimes and the introduction of a thumpy bass. The initial bridge leads into Grey’s soothing voice and a deterioration of the tracks initial elements; the melody is carried still by the soft and somewhat raspy vocals, which are snuggly surrounded in simple piano chords and drawn out background synths. In Diamonds, Lane 8 constantly brings instruments in and out to create a sense of fullness and growth.
This beauty of a track will release on Anjunadeep on November 17th, but we highly recommend you stream it now, with the link above. Enjoy.
