His track record for Cir­cus is im­pres­sive, the la­bel re­leas­ing work by Four Tet, Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Harry Romero and many more. His own tunes are also in de­mand and he’s ac­cu­mu­lated a cat­a­logue of tracks for Bpitch Con­trol, Crosstown Rebels, Get Phys­i­cal, De­fected, Ce­cile, Co­coon and Deso­lat. IR­ISH NORDIC FU­SION Slow Moving Clouds Danny Di­a­mond’s fid­dle criss­crosses Kevin Mur­phy’s cello and Fin­nish mu­si­cian Aki’s nykel­harpa. The un­pre­dictable re­sults are what make this Ir­ish/Nordic col­lab­o­ra­tion so in­trigu­ing. A con­tem­po­rary twist on tra­di­tional themes.

The for­mer is set to the com­poser’s string quar­tets, while the lat­ter is per­formed to a score by In­dian ta­ble player Zakir Hus­sain. The work, and his team of 12 dancers, bridge the gap be­tween clas­si­cal bal­let and the 21st cen­tury.
