Living between San Fran and DC, Diggs Duke is firmly cemented in the exciting soul & jazz scene coming out of the US. Rooted in jazz, Diggs Duke arrangements eschew traditional song structure for a looser groove-based aesthetic, punctuated with short bursts of Dwele-esque vocals.
It takes a certain kind of musical talent to fit such a wealth of ideas into this small a space without things feeling cramped. This new track sees him doing just that- showing off a gorgeous musicality.
The sparse arrangement of ‘He Wants To Live Like You’ finds all kind of beautiful tension in the gaps, Diggs performance on vocals and keys a reminder of his shining talent as a musician.
