DIE! GOLDSTEIN (D!G, to make it short) is the musical solo project of Diego Mart, born in Granada, Spain. At the age of 8, he started studying music and violin at the Conservatorium for 10 years. In the year 2005, and after a seven-year musical break, he took advantage of an old computer to begin spitting out all the social and musical experiences and learning he had been accumulating all those years.
D!G nurtures itself from dystopic literature, politic corruption and the atmosphere of David Lynch films, just like from the emotional overload in PostRock, the experimentation in Electronica and the darkness in PostPunk.
DIE! GOLDSTEIN, as the character in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four to whom workers dedicate their daily two minutes of hate and from where D!G takes its moniker, it aims to denounce those who own power and use it to plant fear amongst those hierarchically inferior in order to deprive them from their liberty. To those who are looking forward to make a new order, causing chaos.
Parting from this dystopia, it proposes to get to a better conflict solution starting with ourselves, heading us towards a more encouraging panorama. That’s what indicates the title of its debut album, Dystopia / Utopia, released on 2009 by Loving Noise Records.
Diego Mart is member as well of the post rock band named Seashell Velasco (support band of Mogwai in his Spanish tour of 2009. As well played with Oceansize and Vessels on 2010).
