A bass-loving producer who trades in EDM, rap, and trap, Carnage was a successful hip-hop beatmaker before he transitioned into the world of dance. Born Diamante Blackmon, the L.A.-based producer had made tracks for the likes of A$AP Rocky and G-Eazy while making more club-oriented music on the side. In 2012 he worked with rapper Katie Got Bandz, who was signed to the usually electro imprint Fool’s Gold, and by the end of the year he released his trap music track “Bang!” on the label. Work with Borgore, Tony Junior, and a hit remix of Martin Garrix’s “Spaceman” followed, along with numerous club and festival appearances, with Carnage the DJ labeling his music “festival trap.” In 2015 he signed with the Ultra label and released his single “WDYW,” which featured A$AP Ferg, Rich the Kid, and Lil Uzi Vert. Full-length Papi Gordo appeared by the end of the year, and the album included guest appearances by Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, I Love Makonnen, and others. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
