as revealed in this interview which takes in his career as drummer in synth-jazz-funksters Landscape and as hot producer (Spandau Ballet's "Musclebound" and Diamonds, many others) and also as Fairlight programmer for Kate Bush and Visage...
And how about this - the Landscape albums had the word EDM printed on them -- standing for Electronic Dance Music.
That's from the "experimental" and much-derided second side of Diamond - and I have to concede it's a surprisingly attractive slice of faux-Orientalism
Good last quote from Burgess, at the time of the interview working on a huge box set of a century of jazz for Smithsonian:
"I do hear new stuff that I like. I think that one of the dangers is that when so much is possible - samples of all kinds of sounds are available online and software synths and keyboards can emulate anything - things can start to get samey. It usually takes someone to come along and work within economic, technological or self imposed limitations to create something that is really different and stimulating. There has always been a tendency for record labels to sign the epigones and overlook the innovators and the originators."
