If there is an artist out there who has made an incredible journey to the top in such a short space of time, then it’s Don Diablo. This man has been churning out tune after tune after tune, each one nearly bettering the other. And now he is back with yet another single for 2016, as he releases ‘Cutting Shapes’ on his own Hexagon label.
This man does not know how to slow down, to stop or to even take a break. It’s full on all the time for Don Diablo. Which isn’t a bad thing. So far in 2016 alone, we have heard around six originals or official remixes coming from the artist, with ‘Cutting Shapes’ another to add to the list. Not to mention the growth of his label as well, allowing new acts to come up and rise up through the scene. Oh and his busy touring schedule. It’s been a wonderful year for Don Diablo and with his UK tour coming up, it’s likely to get a lot better.
Back to the track ‘Cutting Shapes’ though and it’s in the style we would expect from Don Diablo. This artist has developed, manipulated and tested his own Future House sound. The key focus of the track is on those stand out piano melodies, which fuse with the vocals that have been included on the track. This blend is rather sweet, but as the track progresses, the pianos fade out and the synths become the focus of the track alongside the vocals. The drop is all about those Future Houses sounds, the sketchy electro melodies which carry a lot of energy. This is one which will go down a treat on the dance floors around the world. It’s classic Don Diablo, it works really well and it’s a track which will get the dancing shoes on. Cool stuff with ‘Cutting Shapes’.
