Post Author: Aidan Grant

New York producer-songwriter carves out solo career with introspective new pop single

Having originally begun his career as the singer of electronic/alternative outfit Suntalk, as well as a backing vocalist for both Elton John and Alicia Keys, New York producer Demetrius is now building a career as a stellar electronic producer-songwriter.

In his time in music, he’s worked with an eclectic mix of artists including DJ Hell, Jerome Sydenham, Joyce Muniz, Emanuel Satie, Matthew Dekay and Spanish producer Kostok. He’s also graced the speakers of world famous nightclub Berghain. 

“Black Diamonds” is his first release via newly created Black Diamond Records, an imprint founded by Joyce Muniz and Joshua Tennent. The label hopes to share a different side of electronic music by releasing artists who cross genre lines to create a radio-friendly take on underground music.

The label explains, “With this debut release on Black Diamonds Records, Demetrius presents a soulful take on electronica. Fusing indie dance grooves with introspective pop, the upcoming releases are part of a serial EP that explores Demetrius’s life directly after his move to the techno capital. With a new track out every three weeks, the culminating EP captures both the highs and lows of Demetrius’s journey and distils them into a melancholic message of endurance and hope.”
