Release date: 13 May 2011

Today we release the new single by The KDMS. The new band of Maximilian Skiba & Kathy Diamond.

He formed this new group with Kathy Diamond. London’s Underground Disco Queen. (Releases on Permanent Vacation, Eskimo and Moodmusic.)

The KDMS will do a full album in 2012. For now check their last 2 singles on Gomma, too..

The KDMS – High Wire (Maxi)

Release: 13 August 2010
Cat#: Gomma 147

High Wire is the new slowdisco bomb of Kathy Diamond and Max Skiba aka The KDMS. It’s their second 12inch release on Gomma, but already the buzz is big. Their last Gomma -single “Never Stop Believing” (including the infamous house remix by New York DJ legend Nicky Siano) was huge with DJs from Pilooski to Holy Ghost, Tim Sweeney to Aeroplane.

And it is quite sure that the new one will get no less attention. High Wire can easily be described as a little masterpiece. Just listen to it one time and it will stay in your head. Remixes by Russian newcomers D-Pulse, Gomma’s own Mustang and Kool DJ Dust (with releases on Permanent Vacation and Tronik Youth’s label under his belt).

Kathy Diamond from London & Max Skiba from Poland are busy right now: see also Kathy’s single with Toby Tobias on Radioslave’s label Rekids and another record with Nick Chacona on Mood. Max Skiba (whose last single was featured on Mylo’s Mixmag CD) comes with a single on Under The Shade. We can be sure: 2011 will be big for these two funkster – youngsters.

Tim Sweeney: “Enjoying that Kool DJ Dust mix!”
Dimitri from Paris: “I love this, hard to choose between original and remixes.”
Ajello: “Really good release. Max could not go wrong! My prefered remix is D-Pulse vocal and Mustang dub as well.”
Tronik Youth: “Loving the live dub and the Mustang dub, both killer”
Prince Language: “LOVE the original of High Wire – sounds classic but not at all retro. Reminds me of Change. Great summer tune!”
