MATT DIAMIND

Matt Diamind is a Vancouver based producer. Founding member & producer/emcee for groups’ The X Presidents & Conscience, Matt is currently working on his debut self-produced solo album, “The Rimbaud Protocol” which includes features from Fatlip & Slimkid3 (formerly of The Pharcyde). With influences stemming from funk, jazz, hip-hop & electronic music, the album has a unique sound with a variety of live instrumentation & rap.

Beatroute Magazine spoke highly of his work with The X Presidents’ on their latest project “Hands Up”;

“The X Presidents’ self-produced second album is a largely introspective affair, with tracks ranging in tone from melancholic, guitar-driven reflections like “What I Should Have Said” and “Get Me Through” to the more feel-good “Carefree” and “Tumblin’.” Jazz, blues, and rock influences underscore the album, resulting in a cohesive, relevant release from a local hip-hop crew worth keeping an eye out for”

Matt has extensively toured & performed in 13 countries with artists such as KRS-One, Rakim, Fatlip & Slimkid3 (of The Pharcyde), Kool Keith, Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Slum Village, Apathy & Celph Titled & Redman. Matt has also worked on studio singles/videos with KRS-One, Fatlip, J-Sw!ft & Kool Keith. After co-producing several beats with J-Sw!ft (Producer of Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde), the 2 decided to join forces for a project under the name “The Break Fast Club”. In 2017 he performed at the Canada Day 150th at Canada Place as well as Rifflandia Festival - 10th Anniversary, at the famous Phillips Backyard Stage. Matt will be performing on Second Beach in Vancouver for the Honda Celebration of Lights fireworks competition in August 2018 and will be joining Fatlip across Canada for the “What’s Up Fatlip?” tour in October 2018.
