I had previously bought some of Sid Diamond's early material, and enjoyed it. This is a return of some note with"No Sympathy" being possibly his best track ever. Ok, most people won't rate my opinion on a hip hop artist's music, but that's my view. This track hit me like the proverbial sledgehammer last night. With powerful and moving lyrical content, great delivery (Brad Marquis on additional vocals), a well-balanced production job from Koolade, and one of the best NZ hip hip videos I have seen in awhile, this feels like it could chart. The video was edited and directed by Andy Morton with Andrew Stroud as D.O.P and Shayne Radford on art direction. Produced by Ivan Barge. Well done guys. All round class act. (In this song's context, some irony to that comment). You can buy the new single at the link below. You can also find out more about Sid Diamond and Move The Crowd Records at the link below that.
