Diamond Version will release EP2 on 12” on November 26th and via Digital Download on December 4th.

Featuring the tracks “Science For A Better Life, “Shift The Future” and “Forever New Frontiers”, this is the next installment in a sequence of five 12″ / download EPs to be released throughout 2012 and 2013, culminating in a debut full length record in 2013.

With playful humor, Diamond Version explore Daily Short Message Information Culture (DSMC), their phrase to describe the relentless slogans we are bombarded with, rendered meaningless by their constant repetition. “We both are obsessed with company logos,” explain Diamond Version. “We collected these slogans and started reading them, without knowing the companies. In this amount and concentration they become absurd.”

A version of “Shift The Future” was transmitted at the No Nukes 2012 festival in Japan, organized by Ryuichi Sakamoto as a reaction to the reopening of the Oi nuclear power plant following 2011’s nuclear disaster, watch the video message here: http://youtu.be/5fTWS7WBKgA

EP2 follows EP1: Technology At The Speed Of Life / Empowering Change, described by The Wire as “metallic ring modulated tones gleam in the dark always driven forward by a malevolent computational funk”.

Diamond Version is the collaborative project between two of the most groundbreaking, experimental and forward thinking creators in modern music, Byetone and Alva Noto. As joint heads of the German-based label Raster-Noton, with their solo projects, they have been releasing work that spectacularly blurs the lines between the visceral and the conceptual, bridging the gap between gallery and dancefloor

“Diamond Version is a project born out of a live situation. We occasionally performed encores together after our solo sets. These spontaneous and improvised tracks always had a kind of “special energy” which we missed in our solo works.”

The debut of their audio-visual live performance, with special guest Atsuhiro Ito, was at Sonar 2012, reviewed here by The Quietus, http://thequietus.com/articles/09113-diamond-version-sonar-live-review.

Future dates will be announced shortly.
