More info
Dick Diamonds is a promoter and DJ/producer of Deep House, Techno and Indie Dance/Nu-Disco hailing from Toronto, Canada. Starting out as a promoter in 2009 as a member of the Plugged Not Thugged crew, he founded and developed the largely popular Major Rager event series, where he began to take on an interest in DJing.

After leaving the crew in 2011, Dick Diamonds went on to found The Deep North, which is a promotions company, blog, a soon to be label and a crew well known for its late night party series Late & Deep, which aims to bring high quality producers and DJ's from abroad to Toronto's bustling EDM market. Since its inception in the spring of 2011, the Deep North has brought many of the world’s best producers and DJ's to Toronto – many times without any partners or flight shares – by going out on a limb to bring Canada a taste of music which previously had not been heard before. Committed to the growth of Toronto's electronic music scene, Dick Diamonds has built a reputation as one of Toronto's most forward thinking promoters, one who is not new to taking risks in order to keep moving his city forward and help build a sustainable market for forward-thinking electronic music in Canada.

Through his work with the Deep North, Dick Diamonds and his crew we asked to become founding partners in Toronto's nascent Sound in Motion Electronic Music Festival, which held its first event in the summer of 2012 – a three day event which brought together some of the best musicians and DJs from North America and Europe's underground.

As a DJ, Dick Diamonds has played in Toronto's top clubs and venues, and has shared the stage with some of the world’s most exciting acts in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a member of the production duos the Hermans (with Deep North member Maxwell James) and work with the Deep North's Sean Roman, Dick Diamonds blazed a trail of releases in 2012 with music launched and forthcoming on respected labels such as On The Prowl (USA), Extended Play (UK), Runnin Wild (UK), Zoo:Technique (Italy), 530Techno (USA) and Molotov21 (Brazil) - - with remixes by world class producers such as Gerd, Deepchild, Sacha Robotti, Bubba, Murr, Sean Roman, Beep Dee and Gabriel Boni. As a result of these releases, Dick Diamonds, and Sean Roman went on a European Tour in November 2012 where they played events such as the famed Feast party at 93 Feet East in London's Brick Lane, Surface at Stealth Nightclub in Nottingham with Darius Syrossian, as well as many others. After the two had split and went their separate ways Dick was given the opportunity to play alongside Ralph Lawson and Joyce Muniz in Vienna at Pratersauna.

Expect to see Dick Diamonds' unrelenting work ethic and creativity to continue to shine in the years to come. 

Work & Play, almost every day.
