2019 was a big year for Demetrius with the successful release of his debut “Black Diamonds” EP, several new singles and a remix by Joyce Muniz. Now comes another brilliant remix of the title track, “Black Diamonds”, from Berlin-based producer, Tony Casanova. It is a dark take on the original with Demetrius’ melancholic vocals rising over the driving house beat and melodic synth lines tying everything together.
About Tony Casanova
It’s probably trippy disco. Or is it just the socialization of which the artistic work of Tony Casanova derives from? Or might it be the clue, that the world is just flat after all? Identifying genres is so 70s, 80s, 90s. Let’s rather call it a profound sentiment which Tony creates in his DJ and live sets. He thereby skillfully opens gates to supernatural sceneries and invites everyone to follow him on this journey. Based in the “Station Endlos Crew”, the Berlin artist personalizes his very own way of music life.
Originally from New York, Demetrius’s repertoire serves up a soulful, retro take on electronica that perfectly marries his past and present. Reflecting the electronic mecca of his current hometown Berlin, as well as his Trinidadian roots with occasional subtle Caribbean inflexions, his material ranges from melancholic, introspective electronic pop to dramatic synth-driven house through to mystical, progressive house-meets-techno sounds. He has performed in everything from bands to operas, choirs and musicals as well as ghostwriting for others. He has also sung backup vocals for both Elton John and Alicia Keys, and performed and released for years as lead singer of electronic/alternative band Suntalk — recording at the legendary Electric Ladyland Studios in the process.
