Quickie with a DJ: Paper Diamond + New Tour Dates Announced!
Paper Diamond will kickoff 2012 the same way he's closing out 2011-- with a massive bang. Or shall I say bass-drop? In celebration of his Winter Tour, he's teamed up with Lights All Night and Indaba music for a remix contest where the winner will be flown in to perform at this year’s Lights All Night Festival on Dec 30th and 31st in Dallas, TX! Submissions are due by November 25th, 2011. To enter the contest, view the rules, and to download the stems for “Can We Go Up?” click here.
Don't miss Paper Diamond at this year's SnowGlobe Music Festival in Tahoe. Then, see the full winter tour schedule after elektro's quickie with the man himself. There will be special opening performances from M Machine, now signed to Skrillex's OWSLA label, January 18-28!
elektro: Favorite drink?
Paper Diamond: Currently its Hendricks Gin with tonic, muddled cucumber, jalapeno, and lime. I call it the "Seymour."
Scariest groupie moment? People throwing up in confined places really freaks me out.
Craziest place you ever had sex? Mile High Club member!
If you can have one superhero power, what would it be? Flying or invisibility… or teleportation! I've never really thought about it before. Now that I do, teleportation would make my job pretty easy.
First job you ever had? I think it was selling Pogs on the playground to other kids in elementary school. You remember Pogs right?
