In this episode of Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine, Dubspot instructor Shareef Islam invites Grammy Award winning producer and songwriter Devo Springsteen to revisit his 2005 hit production of "Diamonds (from Sierra Leone)" by Kanye West.

In the latest installment of Dubspot's Reclaiming the Remix w/ Maschine series, Dubspot Shareef Islam talks to Grammy Award winning producer, songwriter, and technology entrepreneur Devo Springsteen (a.k.a. Devon Harris) about his 2005 production of the track "Diamonds (from Sierra Leone)" from Kanye West's 2005 sophomore album Late Registration. Devo Springsteen, who is actually Kanye West's cousin, discusses the creative process and production tools he used to create the instrumental track for "Diamonds"; from finding a vinyl record copy of the 1971 Diamonds Are Forever soundtrack (which features the theme song performed by singer Shirley Bassey), to the gear which included an Akai MPC, a Yahama Motif, and copy of Cubase, to the awesome additional musical contributions from producer Jon Brion who played harpsichord and film director Michel Gondry who played live drums. A magnificent story behind a classic track.
