Dieselboy Leads Dub Nation Tour to Revolution

Dieselboy's influence is hard to overstate. After years of making hard-core rave mixtapes — before drum 'n' bass even existed as a genre — as a 20-something in Philadelphia in the late '90s, he started the pioneering weekly d'n'b night Platinum. From there quickly mushroomed an insane career that has yielded gigs on six of the world's continents, countless high-selling mix albums, original tracks, and more.

In the late days of the genre's popularity, he was also responsible for popularizing its darker, techier strains, putting a distinctly American, mechanical stamp on the sound.

In the lean years for d'n'b, though, Dieselboy's popularity hardly waned, and with dubstep's current reign, there's reason for new kids to look to the recent past. Dieselboy's current sets encompass everything from dubstep to electro to good old drum 'n' bass, and he continues to push the bass forward with his own label, Human Imprint, and its new sublabel, SubHuman.


Dieselboy, with Skrillex. 9 p.m. Friday, December 10, at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $10. Click here.
