It's been roughly a decade since Shabazz Palaces first shook the ramparts with their debut stylistic revolution, 'Black Up'. It still remains impossible to accurately describe a Shabazz Palaces album without lapsing into cosmic tropes. Yet sometimes clich�s are stand-ins for eternal truths. Therein, 'The Don of Diamond Dreams' embodies a futuristic manifestation of ancient myth, full of robotic vocoder and warped auto-tune. It is hip-hop, dub, jazz, R&B, soul, funk, African, experimental, and occasionally even pop. But over the course of five albums, Shabazz Palaces have conceived the fluid boundaries of their own one-band genre.
