Premiere TBX

Premiere: Seb Zito – Isolation (Mr.Diamond Remix) [Seven Dials Records]

2020 will be the year that is remembered by all with the words Lockdown and Isolation. For the latest release on Seven Dials, we bring you a track that was born out of Isolation, hence the title. With billions around the world confined to their houses, it’s been a time for studio projects for many. Zito produced this track whilst in isolation and then put it out to his fan base in a small video form and put together a competition for people to remix. The amount of entrants was astounding; however label head honcho, Seb Zito went through every single entry and picked out 4 favourites before whittling it down to the final 2 winners to be released on the label. The two winners, PACH, and Mr.Diamond have delivered the goods in the perfect style for Seven Dials and amongst massive competition too.

The original mix typifies Seb Zito and his Seven Dials label. With straight up beats for the floor, combining garage and old school sounds with an energy that has kept Zito at the forefront of the underground scene for over a decade.

The second mix comes from Mr.Diamond, with releases on Rendr, Roush and Streetking, it’s fair to say Mr Diamond is moving forward fast. His sound is a raw and gritty and for his remix he combines an old school breaks intro, a power bassline, 90’s flavoured keys and when it drops coming out of the break its clear why Zito picked this one as a winner.

This is an excellent release with Zito giving newcomers much needed light, at a time when there was so much darkness in the world. This is another essential must here on Seven Dials, something you could say has become the new normal.
