Don Diablo kicks off 2022 in with the release of ‘Face To Face’ ft. Watts, which is out now on HEXAGON. For his first single of the year Don veers away from the club, opting for an uplifting, soulful tune.
Showcasing the softer, more melodic side to his productions, the track demonstrates his ability to transition between genres, whilst still capturing his sound.
Don Diablo: "I wanted to kick off 2022 with a soulful tune to kill the winter blues. When I heard Watts' track ‘Feel’ with Khalid last year I immediately put him at the top of my vocalist wishlist so I am very happy things came together so quickly.
“Also very excited to have another co-write in the bag with the supremely talented Elderbook with whom I collaborated on my single ‘Bad’ ft. Zak Abel.
“Due to the pandemic and the ongoing lockdown situation in my country I decided to produce and direct an up close and personal music video myself, showcasing a day in my life walking and biking through the empty streets of my hometown Amsterdam. It also features a little cameo of my latest art piece that is currently exhibited at the Moco Museum, connecting my work as a musician with my work as a (digital) art creator."
With 2021 apparently one of his most momentous years of his career to date, his contribution to the electronic music, art and design communities over the last year has been much.
First entering the NFT space back in March last year, Don has been involved in the scene ever since with his digital/physical hybrids. In just under a year, the Dutchman has ‘earned his place as one of the highest-averaging artists in the community’, sold his first piece at his debut Art Basel, and has collaborated with platforms and auction houses such as SuperRare and Sotheby’s, not to mention pieces at PACE Gallery and MOCO Museum.
In addition to his musical and digital art endeavours, he also saw new projects alongside Star Wars, Disney and the United Nations come to fruition.
Looking ahead to this year, he will be returning to the dancefloor with three shows in the US inFebruary, as well as a number of other shows in the pipeline.
