Colorado-based DJ and electronic dance music producer Alex Botwin, better known as Paper Diamond, is a one-of-a-kind artist who brings his own unique music to the table. As he simply put, “Paper Diamond draws from an origami concept in that if you have a piece of paper, whatever your diamond shape is (simple or complex), that’s YOUR art. For me musically speaking, whether it’s simple or has a lot of layers, it’s my self-expression. Paper Diamond is art”.
Paragon is the perfect portrayal of Paper Diamond’s eclectic style and his distinctive productions with literally NO RULES. The collaborative efforts on the 11 song EP released through his very own Elm and Oak Records in April of 2013, feature artists such as J Fresh, Gavin Turek, Protohype, Buku, Angela McCluskey and Christian Rich. Paper Diamond seamlessly weaves together diverse genres such as electro, funk, dubstep, house, moombahton and hip-hop into a smooth soulful mix embellished with exciting beats and buildups.
His aw inspiring musical creativity has landed him a spot working with labels including Pretty Lights Music and Diplo’s Mad Decent. While using a variety of production techniques that incorporate stirring bass driven beats with catchy vocals and melodies, his distinctive work with synthesizers constantly create smooth moving hits.
