Biography

  • Host of Night Shift on NTS Radio, Diamondstein's dark and typically melancholic mixes create a cinematic soundscape to everyday mundanity.
    Raised in a small Appalachian town on the West Virginia border, Diamondstein now lives in Los Angeles, where he's been a constant fixture on NTS Radio since its first days in LA. His show, titled Night Shift, is a sort of audio accompaniment to the artwork of Edward Hopper and the flashing fluorescent signs of truck stop adult bookstores, and typically features everything from black metal to ambient piano expressions and field sounds. His guests are equally as diverse and have included the likes of Marie Davidson, Deafheaven, DNTEL, Code Orange, and Dave P. His releases include an equally as cinematic and oftentimes brooding quality, having been described as "the perfect soundtrack to the dark underbelly of a melancholic future dystopia tinged with just the right amount of doomed romance."
