+++ DIESELBOY +++
HUMAN IMPRINT SUBHUMAN – NEW YORK
Dieselboy is one of the world’s great ambassadors of drum 'n' bass having played not only virtually every dnb club venue on the globe, but major music festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, Creamfields (UK and Poland), Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, HFStival, Love Parade, Shambhala, SXSW, Starscape, Summerfest, Ultra, Virgin Festival (US), Jisan Valley Rock Festival (South Korea), PHAT 09 (New Zealand), and Sanctuary Drum & Bass Festival (UK). He has performed on major tours including Playstation 2 and Moby’s Area2, as well as creating dnb tours including the Monsters Of Jungle and the legendary Planet Of The Drums.
In early 2002, in an era of shifting paradigms, drum and bass label HUMAN IMPRINT and SUBHUMAN was born.
Under the leadership of founder Damian Higgins aka Dieselboy -- America's foremost drum 'n' bass/dubstep DJ/producer -- HUMAN moved to the forefront of the North American dnb movement, its catalog evolving into an international rogue’s gallery of dnb heavyweights with cutting edge singles, EP’s and mixed CD’s that stand as futuristic dnb classics.
HUMAN’s mission is intense, high quality, and aesthetically exciting drum and bass, dubstep and electro products — great music from great artists. From 12″’s to albums to apparel to events to tours, HUMAN is determined to do its part to expand the futures of its genres.
With brilliant releases from Numbernin6, Muffler, Bare, Hulk & Dan Wall, and more to come, SubHuman is smashing dubstep heads worldwide
+++ BARE +++
SUBHUMAN PLAY ME BUYGORE - LOS ANGELES
The BARE sound is a product of deep roots in rock, west coast hip-hop (as part of the Vital Mindz collective) and aggressive drum ‘n’ bass (as past alias Reborn). These influences, combined with ultra crisp drum programming, slick melodies and mind altering bass modulation, spawn face melting dubstep anthems that practically rewind themselves. “I’d have to say that the love of making something from nothing inspires me to make music,” BARE says. “There is no better feeling than when you see people go insane to something you created from scratch!”’BARE’s first release, the ragga-influenced “Culture” on Terminal Dusk recordings last March, was charted by DJs worldwide via Chemical Records, and put BARE on the radar alongside other members of the already incendiary Los Angeles dub community. The second release, the Groupie Love Life EP on Reid Speed’s Play Me imprint, held down multiple top 10 spots on Beatport’s coveted download rankings for over a month, and showed the world the BARE sound was a force to be reckoned with. Soon after, BARE was recruited by drum and bass legend Dieselboy as one of a select few artists to represent his breakthrough Subhuman imprint (alongside Numbernin6, Muffler, and Smash Gordon), and from there the buzz grew into a deafening roar. Releases on Ultragore, Basshead Music,Tuff Love Dubs and other high profile labels followed, and BARE tracks found their way onto the playlists of Excision, Funtcase, 12th Planet, Borgore, MRK1 and other high profile dubstep artists around the world. Unofficial reworks of “Fine Day” and “Shot Me Down” released online spread like wildfire, amassing tens of thousands of plays/downloads and counting. BARE’s studio output is astounding to even the most prolific producers – his uncanny ability to crank out top quality tracks on an almost weekly basis leaves his fans with plenty to sink their teeth into.
The madness doesn’t end there. A monster behind the decks, BARE’s high energy, “all killer no filler” DJ performances have earned him a reputation as a tough act to follow. He’s developed a particularly rabid fan base –anyone who’s experienced a BARE set (and lived to talk about it) will tell you he’s a DJ who absolutely loves what he does. BARE is never afraid to engage his crowd – he tends to be as active on the mic as he is on the decks, keeping the crowd locked and constantly coaxing them to go as mental as possibly. In addition to notable one-off gigs at some of the nation’s most notable venues (Dub Nation, Dubtroit, Sub.Mission, Frequency, etc.), his explosive performances have earned him a spot on the Subhuman tour alongside heavyweights Dieselboy and Mark Instinct - invading Cleveland!!!
