Don Diablo hops on cryptocurrency bandwagon, launches HEXCOIN

This post was originally published on this site

Don Diablo 18

For electronic artists, cryptocurrency is the new credit.

Gramatik established his very own cryptocurrency, the GRMTK coin, back in November, a move that led the electro-funk producer to become the first artist to have his intellectual property tokenized. That same month, Gareth Emery announced the impending debut of Choon, a music streaming service and digital payments ecosystem built on an Ethereum blockchain base. 3LAU exhibited a similar affinity for digital currency in his composition and publication of a beginner’s guide to cryptocurrency in December.

Now, Don Diablo joins the crypto crew via HEXCOIN, the artist’s very own digital currency. Working in tandem with the block chain token, Gaze Coin, HEXCOIN enables HEXCOIN wallet owners to patronize HEXAGONIA, a virtual and augmented community in which those with HEXCOIN credit can purchase Don Diablo’s music and merchandise. The VR/AR/XR platform derives its name from Don Diablo’s podcast, Hexagonia, and his label, Hexagon.

Diablo fans need only to download the HEXCOIN wallet and deposit money therein in order to gain access to HEXAGONIA. Directed at a market of young Don Diablo fans, HEXCOIN presents itself as an accessible and easily to use alternative to credit and debit transactions.

“As a creator of electronic music, I’ve always been engaged in technology and how it can connect my art to the outside world,” Diablo said. “With HEXCOIN and HEXAGONIA, I see a future where the line between fan, artist, and technology blurs, and creativity is unleashed in powerful, measurable ways. I’m extremely excited to welcome Hexagonians and future fans to the next level of technology in music.”

Don Diablo turns long-awaited ID into official single, ‘People Say’

This post was originally published on this site

After months of playing out a riveting future bass track in his sets, world-renowned producer Don Diablo has finally officially released the piece everyone’s been waiting for. The Dutch artist first dropped “People Say” as an ID at Ultra Music Festival in Miami during the spring of 2017, and ever since, fans have been trying to figure out the song’s title and its release date. With a sound that diverges from the future bass norm, it comes as no surprise that “People Say” has amassed such overwhelmingly positive support among Don Diablo’s followers even before its release. Featuring alluring synths, exhilarating builds, and passion overflowing in Paije’s colorful vocals, “People Say” is one of Don Diablo’s most captivating songs to date. The futuristic vibe Don Diablo effortlessly masters creates an air of high intensity, compelling, energy.

“I got asked to write something for the score of a science fiction film last year. The first thing I came up with was this futuristic instrumental that was a bit of a departure from my normal sound, but I loved it so much that I kept it for my own project and turned it into “People Say.” The upcoming album is all about pushing things forward, sonically and musically, taking things into the FUTURE in the broadest sense of the word. It’s been a fan favourite ever since I dropped it live for the first time and I am excited to show a different side of myself as a producer and artist.”

Don Diablo releases hotly-awaited ‘You Can’t Change Me’

This post was originally published on this site

Don Diablo has released his latest future house single, “You Can’t Change Me,” via his own Hexagon label. The song has been excitedly awaited by Diablo’s fans since he mixed it into his Tomorrowland set this year and then proceeded to upload a teaser clip to Soundcloud. The release follows the Dutch artist’s explosive collaboration with Arizona, “Take Her Place,” which has racked up over 10 million streams on Spotify in less than two months.

In Diablo’s usual forward-thinking fashion, “You Can’t Change Me’s” meticulous composition is buoyant and upbeat without sounding painfully commercial. Its title and lyrics are reminiscent of their producer himself, as Diablo is known for his incessant innovation and tenacious resolve, earning him Beatport‘s #1 Future House Artist of 2016, as well as this year’s top spot on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs.

Don Diablo puts VIP spin on A R I Z O N A collab, ‘Take Her Place’

Don Diablo‘s highly anticipated track “Take Her Place” has seen some major buzz since its release, featuring soothing electronics from Jersey-native trio A R I Z O N A. The original may have leaned more on the trio’s side of things in terms of production style, centered on vocals and a slower tempo. This time around, Don Dialo leans into his own style and puts his spin on “Take Her Place” with a VIP mix of the track.

The mix includes a more rapid tempo in addition to upbeat, melodic piano chords that easily accompany the eccentric vocals of the original. The drop is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser with its feel-good assortment of synths and vocal motifs.
