Rad Cat has made his debut on Dim Mak’s New Noise imprint with his dark electro-pop single “Diamond” featuring singer/songwriter Gloria Kim. You may have read my prior article introducing Mexican American DJ/Producer Rad Cat and his breathtaking self release “Levitate” (if not you can check it out here). Rad Cat shifted to a darker and more emotional sound this year following a breakup. While “Levitate” was ethereal and airy, “Diamond” contrasts with ominous and crisp synths.
The song is brooding and deep. Kim’s fearless vocals pair beautifully with the effervescent glitchy synths in the drop. The song is emotional but keeps the high energy momentum Rad Cat fans are familiar with. It’s the kind of song that you can just close your eyes and get absolutely lost in.
I am devastatingly in love with both of these tracks. They’ve got me feeling my feelings and I CANNOT STOP. Make sure you keep an eye on Rad Cat to see what dark magic he creates next.
