Blood Diamonds – Dreams

January 11, 2012

Once you find out that Mike Tucker, the producer behind Blood Diamonds, is a 21-year-old video game design student, you can’t help but notice that his complex musical amalgamations seem as though they’ve been influenced by his other vocation. Tracks like “Dreams” feel like full and realized environments that have been created from scratch, like a fictional world that we’re invited to inhabit for about four minutes. Tucker uses a combination of synthetic and natural vocals to build a canvas on which to work, then adds layers of R&B beats and electro-pop hooks until the universe of the track feels whole and complete.
