New single for Diamond Field Feat. Bob Haro
NYC based Kiwi synthwave act Diamond Field has teamed-up with Bob Haro – Freestyle BMX pioneer and lead rider in Steven Spielberg’s iconic ‘80s flick “E.T.” for a slice of 21st Century ‘80s synthpop entitled For ‘Won’t Compromise’.
In 1980’s Southern California, Bob Haro had become one of the biggest names in BMX with his line of BMX products, illustrations and freestyle riding. At the same time, Haro’s love of the the Human League, Depeche Mode and New Order led him to create electronic music of his own. When time-off from BMX allowed, Haro got busy with a four track recorder, a mic, drum machine and synthesizers, creating a large body of work that continues today under the moniker, Factor Of One.
On the other side of the Pacific Ocean in New Zealand, Diamond Field’s Andy Diamond lived for BMX racing, art and music. An obsession with new wave and electronic music led to Diamond’s trip down the neon rabbit-hole of synthesizers and music production.
Now in 2019, Haro and Diamond Field have come together on their new single ‘Won’t Compromise’. With Diamond Field’s shiny synth hooks and Haro’s on-point vocals, this synthpop single gives a friendly nod to Yazoo and Erasure, OMD and the Pet Shop Boys. Bringing 1984 in 2019...
‘WON’T COMPROMISE’ IS RELEASED AS A SEVEN TRACK MAXI-SINGLE FEATURING REMIXES FROM LE FLEX, CIRCUIT WORK AND DASHCAM, INSTRUMENTAL AND ‘80s 12” EXTENDED MIX. ALSO AVAILABLE ON LIMITED EDITION CASSETTE.
