Into Black was more of a stylistic choice. My music has always reflected a certain side of me that comes across naturally, particularly my Drum & Bass music. The sound of the EP was more of a throwback to my older sounds and influences, combined with newer elements; I spent a day sampling, then processing, cutting, re-arranging… although I also wanted for the EP to have it’s main elements entirely synthesized. Spending time with my peers has taken me out of an old habit, inspiring me to create more. Into Black is a result of that.

The legendary Future Cut land on V Recordings. Originally slated for release back in 2005 this single has remained unreleased until now – with only a handful of Test Press vinyls making it out into circulation. Now finally ready to roll this is two slices of rolling dancefloor D&B from one of the UK most in demand production outfits, who when not skanking to some D&B can be found on the dials for the likes of Lily Allen, Professor Green, Dizzee Rascal, Wretch 32, Sir Tom Jones and many more!

After his truly explosive debut, Naiive is back in the Terabyte catalogue; and once again he’s bringing the heat. The A-side, ‘From The Shadows’ combines beautiful pad work, and sublime vocals from Emmy Cath with an evil bassline, making for an awesome cocktail of styles. The drums switch effortlessly between rolling and halftime in a truly unique way. The tossing and turning between gully roller and liquid beauty sits perfectly, as the track takes you on a journey through sound. This is a really musical piece of drum & bass that will fit into any set anywhere.
Bulgarian DJ and producer L 33‘s material has been working its way into the sets of the drum n bass worlds finest over the past few years with titans such as Hype and Andy C supporting his material (Andy even featured his “Discrete” track on the Nightlife 6 mix and then signed up two of his tracks for Ram‘s Program offshoot) and his reputation for making huge dancefloor drum n bass on a tough n techy tip has seen labels around the world scouring for releases from him.

A good classic mix around the millenium, originally appearing on the Palm Pictures label back in 2000, “The 6ixth Session” was Dieselboys best selling mix CD. It features Konflict’s super awesome “The Messiah” which is one of hise favorite drum and bass anthems of all time. The amazing graphic design is by Akira Takahashi and showcases 3D modeling of his head from Rene Garcia aka “Hyperform” who went on to do 3D work for the Matrix and Transformers movies. Suffice it to say, he have always been extremely proud of this particular work. It really helped push drum and bass music to a larger audience in North America.
