“Paper Diamond has created a cohesive work out of disparate sounds, resisting modern EDM’s genre taxonomy. The EP is rooted in the bass-heavy, dubstep-driven sound that earned him legions of fans as part of Pretty Lights’ camp. But a sense of fearlessness permeates its 11 tracks, with no sound or sample off-limits.”– Billboard
“Due to years of experience, Paper Diamond puts on a live show that will keep you on your feet the entire set. PD is a must-see live this summer.”– VIBE Magazine
“Having seen Paper Diamond once at Bonnaroo, he completely stole the show bringing just enough funky dub with a mixture of hip-hop and bass.”
– EDM Sauce (on the Altered States Tour)
“Although the set clocked in at just an hour, it was nothing short of quality filled with high energy tracks. Paper Diamond took this crucial time to introduce new music, while playing tracks that helped establish his place as a must-see live act. He was excellent with crowd interaction and successfully building the energy on the Altered States Tour.”
– Indie Rock Reviews

Ever since Alex Botwin launched his Paper Diamond moniker slightly over two years ago, the multigenre producer and instrumentalist has brought his artistic sounds to the masses making festival appearances this summer at Detroit’s Movement Fest to New York City’s Governors Ball, HARD Summer in Los Angeles, and Austin City Limits. In addition to his debut performance this summer at Bonnaroo, and closing out LA’s HARD Day Of The DeadPaper Diamond spent the good majority of 2013 on the road playing extensive tours with Excision and more recently Zeds Dead.
As the new year quickly approaches, Paper Diamond shows no signs of slowing down as he announces his first headline tour of 2014, along with musical guests LoudPvck, Branchez, Gent & Jawns, and Manic Focus, plus more artists to be announced.

The dynamics of Paper Diamond’s live performance makes every show a unqiue experience. Alex explains how he improvises each set live every night to give his fans a truly unique experience. “I’m using my iPad on stage to control two computers, one has Ableton to play the music, which then sends a MIDI signal to the second computer, where I can control all of the LEDs and live visuals on stage that will capture the nonstop energy of my set. So basically, I get to represent myself in not just a musical manner, but I get to provide an overall visual experience for my fans as well.”
On this tour Paper Diamond will be experimenting with new gear by incorporating creative beatmaking with an acclaimed sound library on Maschine Studio into his live stage productions. During 2014, fans can expect to hear a plethora of new tunes, some featuring never-before-heard collaborations during his recent LA studio sessions with various writers, producers and singers. On his March LP release Paragon, Paper Diamond featured a wide array of talent including the adored pop indie singer Angela McCluskey, the widely embraced production duo Christian Rich, plus Cherub, Buku, Gavin Turke, J Fresh, and Protohype. His fans will certainly have a lot of new material to discover.
Supporting artists playing on tour were hand picked by Alex who takes note that they each share a similar philosophy. “We all love the same things, we like to play great music and have a great time, and I wanted to bring along good music from artists that I personally enjoy and respect.”
Bursting onto the trap scene in 2012, the Los Angeles based duo, LoudPvak consists of DJ producers Kenny Beats and Ryan Marks, who have been blowing up with their big room bassy style and remixes from the likes of Kill the Noise, AutoErotique and Nervo.Paper Diamondsays of LoudPvak’s style, “The tricks they do with production really intrigues me.”
You can always hear a choice cut from Gent & Jawns’ during Paper Diamond’s sets, who have become an unstoppable force in the world of club music. The release of their now classic Moombahton anthem “Vibrate” landed them remixes for Datsik, Bare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with Nadastrom, Torro Torro and JWLS. Playing on the tour’s first leg, is Buzzworthy New York native producer Branchez, who recently bonded with Alex during Zeds Dead Altered States tour and has his own fresh take on blending jazz, slow burning rap beats and synths that oozes soulful timbre. Manic Focus also joins the crew with his energized electro hip-hop filled with deep bass lines and melodious grooves.

“Paper Diamond keeps his music multifaceted by way of an immeasurably high dose of creativity and distinct method in song production. [His live set] incorporates dustup, house and moombahton while interacting with the crowd.
