Editorial: “The Science Behind Features” Interview w/Matt Diamond


Coalmine Records’ Matt Diamond


If you’ve enjoyed several of our events like our Beat-B-Q at SXSW, or the recent ‘Can You dig It?’ Remix Contest, than you have undoubtedly been exposed to some of this man’s work. Matt Diamond is an East Coast-based music entrepreneur who has had several years of adding substance to the many layers of the underground Hip hop scene. In Alkota’s interview, he reveals many of the intricacies involved in guest features in today’s music with his Coalmine Records imprint.
