Dieselboy - UNLEASHED! A Shocking New Vision Of Bass Destruction Dieselboy's mix CD s 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 only releases mixes infrequently, these moments are considered a special event.
This is one of those moments. 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 sci-fi fantasy movie posters of of the 1970s. It looks and sounds hardcore.
Here it is - the mix he considers his best to date... Get ready to test your speakers.
