Diana Boss is a vibe.
Diana Boss is an attitude. Diana Boss is a way of life. Diana Boss is about doing what you want to do and being who you want to be.
But what's in a name? An obvious nod to the queen, Miss Ross, herself, who once said on the Ed Sullivan show, "well soul is kind of hard to describe, but I think soul is everyone doing their own thing," but also to groups like Lucy Pearl, whose carefree sound and iconic style remain a heavy influence.
As a production team, Diana Boss’ soulful, polished sound skirts the line between the underground and commercial dance music. Their love for sexy deep house has allowed them to move effortlessly from day parties to after parties. Diana Boss' vision is to be recognized as world-class producers and studio collaborators promoting personal connections and personal expression.
This guiding principle has led to their most recent production with infamous Canadian trans artist Quanah Style. Their summer 2017 unofficial Pride anthem "Give Me Life" was awarded a 2017 Telus Storyhive Music Video Grant and since its release on Wet Trax has made waves in LGBTQ+ communities across Western Canada.
As regular contributors to Groundwerk - an inclusive collective focused on cultivating local electronic music scenes - Diana Boss has been able to collaborate with other talented, rising artists such as I M U R, Karsten Sollors [Toolroom], and Queensyze [Nervous].
Diana Boss and I M U R’s 2016 original production “Show & Tell” was premiered on Classy Records and quickly hit over 170k streams, which paved the way for Diana Boss' other major collaboration that year with LA-based singer-songwriter Danelle Sandoval. After its release on Miami's Basemnt imprint, their remix of "Chairs" reached over 260k streams making it their first viral success.
The Fall of 2016 saw the release of Diana Boss’ first EP “West Coast” featuring the vocals of Elle Wolf. Signed to newly formed Groundwerk Recordings, the title track has since garnered attention locally and has been played out at major clubs and music festivals.
In the spirit of collaboration, early 2017 saw Diana Boss “Simple Girl” EP again feature the vocals of Elle Wolf as well as remixes by Karsten Sollors [Toolroom], Queensyze [Nervous], and other notable Vancouver producers. The title track, released on LA’s Straight Up! was premiered on EDM.com and reached over 150k streams making it their biggest commercial release to date.
Their live performance track record includes supporting artists like Gene Farris, BOT, and Gold Fish and most recently playing at Center of Gravity Music Festival. They have played at established Vancouver venues such as Gorg-O-Mish, Fortune Sound Club, MIA, 1181, and the VAL Villa.
