CI is the first full length album from Diamond Version. A duo made up of Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai, the founders of the German electronic label, Raster-Noton. With CI, which stands for Corporate Identity, Diamond Version are fighting back against consumerist culture latent with brand slogans and insidious advertising. The band's debut album pairs blistering electronic rhythms, deconstructed techno and dread static with clipped slogans borrowed from advertising and marketing, in both lyrics and track titles such as 'Science for a Better Life' and 'Access to Excellence'.
