Paragon will feature a range of production, instrumentation, and collaborators all weaved into Paper Diamond’s signature style.

In Memory of M.C.A.
Adam Yauch, who went by the infamous moniker of MCA died at 47 today. Battling the hard fight of cancer since 2009, has made an impact on the world today with this terrible news. Taking you back to New York in the late 1970′s, The Beastie Boys were the first white group to successfully sing rap songs and remain popular for more than a quarter century. He will be missed as he has been one of the biggest influences upon so many musicians all over the world.
“So what’s your name, Yauch? My name is M.C.A.
I’ve been coming to where I am, from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul”- RIP Adam Yauch

Paper Diamond doing his thing on this track show casing his softer side of electronic. The weekend claims they can get best new artist of 2012 and I also believe so. With the new EP Echos of Silence dropped for free download in 2011 they have gotten nothing but love and full on attention from producers and Dj’s for their outstanding vocals. Take a listen as Paper Diamond keeps the relaxed vibe while adding some great electro sound to the chorus, and adding synths and bass to the versus.

Mansions on the Moon
Enjoy their latest single with this more relaxed, folk vibe by the use of an acoustic guitar. Their upcoming Lightyears EP is produced by the one and only Pharrell, and only goes to show you his talent as an artist and how versatile this group can be. I’ve posted some of their tracks from this album already, so if you haven’t gotten a chance to hear it then I strongly advise you to do so.
