Dieselboy

The jungle scene has always been centered in Britain, leaving Americans to watch from afar, import the records, and spin occasionally (though rarely very well). Damian Higgins reversed the trends a little bit with his nation-trotting gigs and frequent mix albums released as Dieselboy. Born in Pennsylvania, Higgins began DJing during the early '90s and organized house parties in and around Philadelphia. By 1993, the sound of jungle had begun pumping up America as well as Britain, and Dieselboy made the switch to drum'n'bass. He DJed at jungle events all around America and helmed 1996's Suburban Base jump-up compilation Drum & Bass Selection USA. Another Sub Base mix album, 97 Octane, followed in 1997. Dieselboy's next two albums (A Soldier's Story, System Upgrade) appeared on Moonshine, the premier American mix label. In mid-1999, Higgins began his production career with a single ("Atlantic State") for the respected British concern Technical Itch Recordings, and another single, "Descent," followed later that year for Palm Pictures. Dieselboy's 2000 release, The 6ixth Session, combined a mix disc with a full one of productions. ~ John Bush, Rovi

the only people that think dn'b is dead are the ones on the deck tails and listening/sp i n n i n what, trap and purple? few questions: how would you classify a party dj these days and where are their roots coming from, ultimately?! party dj's used to be classified as what, spinnin' NRG a few years back???.. is this what drum/ dub step was influenced by? prrrhaps in the begining but it's all relative, RIGHT?!
MANY word/S can be used but cereally cannot describe the complexity of a perticular human e

i was in PA when the scene was still cool and weird and not everyone knew about it. We had some very good DnB and breakbeat DJs, although not many of them. I don't feel this bio does the American sound justice. one of my favorite things is when a DnB or dark electro breaks DJ came on and the candy ravers got scared off the dance floor. then the crews take over and we just tear it up. if you know what I mean then you really know what I mean. gives me chills thinking about it.
coming to Cali i hope
I can't wait to see him march 15th in Detroit.
Foutfourjunk i e said it all...d&b underground scene was jumping in the early 90s....and there were many great djs.
Have been seeing Dieselboy for years incl Planet of the Drums w/Dara & AK1200 and many solo shows. Just saw him less than 2 Wks ago @Mothership subbing for DC Breaks who backed out last minute (family emergency). Dieselboy still crushes it and left my brain rattling for days. I will always see this man ANYTIME he is near me
animeishdwar f 3
Way to mention he has his own record label and imprint. The dude is still changing the game. His recent mixes have been over 110 tracks in less than 90 minutes.
No body knowS Damien like I do many night trying to master d and b he is still a god
The bio is really inaccurate.
fourfourjunk i e
this bio is from a mainstream point of view, and highly inaccurate, the US didn't watch from afar and the Dj's who mixed the music in the US did a very good job, it is apparent the author of the bio was not in the midst of the underground scene in the US when the jungle scene was very rampant and still is. Higgins wasn't the only one doing it in the United States during 1996. so suck it author there is more than meets the eye or in this case the ear.
Miss them days :(
Simply awesome!
I used to get record tips from Dieselboy back at 311 records in the late 90's. Dj Trueblood here. (And no not after that dang show, been doing this a little longer than that)
