We’ll have plenty of bass at the Avalon in Hollywood this Friday night as heavy hitters Dieselboy, Downlink, Smash Gordon, Precept, and TeaLong take the stage at CONTROL. Personally, I’m hoping to hear some great Drum N’ Bass from one of the leaders of the genre, Damian Higgins AKA Dieselboy. He’s been around the scene throughout its ups and downs, and his supergroup known as Planet of the Drums is now a staple at every Bass music tent in the US. Bring on the womps and weirdness.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the GDD™ movement, today I bring you a brand new mix tape from a man who truly does not need any introduction, the one and only Dieselboy. Dieselboy’s mix tapes have turned on generation after generation of heads to the sounds of drum and bass. From “Drum and Bass Selection USA” in 1996 to “Substance D” in 2008, each has become a classic for the genre. Recognized for their solid content, clever aesthetics, imaginative concepts, and intense energy, his CDs have set the bar against which other DJ’s mix projects are measured. Because he releases his mixes fairly infrequently, these moments are considered a special event.
His Mixtape’s are as well known as his ferious live sets are.
Dieselboy – Unleashed! is his most layered and nuanced studio mix to date. Returning to his old school mixtape roots where he isn’t limited to what tracks he could use or license, Dieselboy has used the opportunity to take Unleashed! to another level.
56 tracks were used to craft a deep and extensive 73-minute mix that reveals itself only after repeated listens. Steering away from banging out an “of-the-moment” forgettable dancefloor rinseout, Dieselboy throws down a wide variety of current and classic tracks and edits, wrapping up the mix with 25 minutes of finely diced dubstep that showcases his current taste in the genre and forthcoming tracks from his dubstep label, Subhuman. Finally, the project is given a tongue-in-cheek graphic treatment that references the exploitation of sci-fi fantasy movie posters of the 1970s. It looks and sounds hardcore.
Without further adieu I give you the mix tape Dieselboy himself considers his best to date! (Which is saying A LOT) Also be on the lookout for a GDD™ exclusive interview with Dieselboy in the coming weeks.
I have to say I’m very excited to write my first post on the new site. It’s been a long time coming and we are so glad to hear that you guys are liking the new vibe as much as we are. To keep the good vibes going, why not cruise out to the Avalon tonight for some pounding performances by Le Castle Vania, Toy Selectah, ///BONES and more! Come out early to catch GDD™‘s own ///BONES get the dancefloor started from 9:30-11:00!
