MSTRKRFT and John Digweed to Carry Out Dance Fan Fantasies
First annual Diamond tour pairs unlikely couple.
on Wed Jan 24, 2007
John Digweed's tech-inspired sets and the electro punk anthems of MSTRKRFT will hook up in March to create what organizers promise will be dance floor nirvana. March 1 begins the19-date major club appearances for the first ever 'DIAMONDS TOUR,' where the two distinct electronic musicians (along with special guests) plan to transform the club experience to something, producers say, fans have been searching for in a lineup.
Tour co-producer, Michael Gorman of Last Gang Promotions, said "the unique combination of JOHN DIGWEED and MSTRKRFT is something we had wanted to do for a long time and are thrilled to see it finally transpire". Looking for the most musically-charged bash of the year? Gorman thinks the need for something different on the club circuit is what inspired the DIAMONDS tour and he believes "These parties are destined to fulfill the fantasies of every dance music fan".
A tall order considering the average electronic music fan's appetite for inspiration, but DIAMONDS is off to a promising start. High profile club appearance are scheduled to dominate the spotlight throughout March 2007 at venues like Ruby Skye in San Francisco, Vanguard in Los Angeles, Blue in Atlanta and Pacha in New York. Music industry insiders will also have their shot at critiquing the unique pairing during SXSW in Austin (March 16 at SPIN) and the Winter Music Conference in Miami (March 20 at Pawn Shop).
