// BIO: DIESELBOY //
At a time when headline "DJs" shamelessly play pre-programmed or pre-recorded sets and the masses mindlessly embrace the charade, Dieselboy stands out as a rare veteran of the art and craft of live DJing. His focus on creating complex and unique mixes every performance have created legions of fans around the world. Very few artists mix live on three decks with more precision, intensity or finesse.
For over two decades one of the world's great ambassadors of drum 'n' bass and more recently dubstep, Dieselboy, also known as Damian Higgins, is America's most iconic underground bass music curator and pioneer. He was the first drum 'n' bass artist to chart a single on Billboard's dance chart with "Invid" in 2000, and the first American voted into the UK-based Drum & Bass Arena Top 10 DJs online poll in 2004. He has appeared on magazine covers, been heard on MTV, ESPN and numerous video games, and sponsored by DC Shoes and Pioneer Pro DJ.
In 2002 Dieselboy founded Human Imprint, North America's most prolific, dynamic and innovative drum 'n' bass label, and is co-founder of dubstep/electro label SubHuman, both now under the umbrella of Planet...
// DOWNLINK //
Downlink has been punishing dancefloors all over the planet with his heavy brand of dubstep. With roots in Jungle & DnB, he is no stranger to the vile side of subsonic dance music. Growing up in a cold industrial town in British Columbia, Canada, he was first introduced to dubstep in 2007 and soon after took to production. While maintaining an appreciation for sparse and laid-back dubstep, Downlink set out to explore a more frantic, adrenaline fuelled style, influenced by everything from heavy metal to astrophysics.
His first two releases charted at #1 on several popular online distributors and soon he found his way onto Rottun Recordings which seemed a suiting place for his music. With the release of his "Ignition EP" he has gained DJ support from the likes of Excision, Datsik, Stenchman, Borgore, DZ, 16 Bit, Dieselboy, Evol Intent, Crookers and many more. Downlink is not one to be pigeon-holed and is constantly on a quest to evolve and refine his sound. With this in mind, one thing will always remain constant - a pure unadulterated heavy listening experience...
