Local track of the month: J Diesel’s ‘Moonlight’

J Diesel has recently been a fixture at Share, Interlude at the Cromwell and various house/techno spots.

I doubt anyone checking out underground faves Richie Hawtin, Hot Since 82 and Tommy Trash during their Vegas club sets expects them to actually play Vegas productions. But they, and several other notable DJs, have been supporting the music of J Diesel over the past year. Diesel, who has been a fixture at Share, Interlude at the Cromwell and various house/techno spots, just released his three-song Beauty in the Dark EP on Parquet Recordings. Its highlight is the deep but melodic “Moonlight,” notable for its haunting piano refrain and synthesizer flourishes, as well as its support from Hawtin, Nick Warren and Thomas Schumacher—and that’s just from the first month of release.
