Where is the mixtape "The Directors Cut" in the Dj mixes section?!? That tape is massive! Pure '98 neurofunk styles... Came in a metal tin like a film reel... Great selection as usual from him and is a proper studio mix. I feel this mix is where he got known for his intros... He was unstoppable at the time... I still have an unplayed copy of this , but no tin... I recall it has the rare Dillinja mispress w/ Accurist on it and he mixes it out of the Matrix remix of Medicine by Ed Rush & Optical... This mix is a must for listeners who dig how great of a dj/selector Dieselboy is ... Especially when he was solely rocking vinyl back in the day.. The dude was a treat to see live back in those days too.. He really put on a great show.

Dieselboy was a major influence in my early excursions into Drum'n'bass. His mixes and capacity to intricately use the patterns in the music to create very well planned and well executed mixing was inspirational. It was the standard I used when I started learning back in '97-'99. Because of my close analysis of his work along with Dara and DJ Hype, I was able to very quickly rise as a technically skilled DJ when I surfaced in 2000 and 2001. I think his hard work and dedication to the music has earned him his awards and respect of his peers of which he deserves. I remember when he visited Alaska and played for a production company in that time years ago, he was rolling through mixes of DEI3C. Everybody was jammin'! I'll never forget that crazy summer. Definitely an all-time great DJ, the best of the US alongside other giants and one of the world's all time best Drum'n'bass DJ's.

dieselboy's early tapes (future sound of hardcore, supreme, WTS) are my most prized posessions and were seminal tapes here in the US. it's from him that i learned how to mix but moreover how to truly narrate a set and select records. he's not just a DJ - he's a proper selectah. and many, many DJs lack that key element and will never have it. it's what separates a good DJ from a great one.

dieselboy ranks with any of the best DJs the DNB culture has ever seen. randall, swift, mickey finn, dylan, old or new, any of them. personally i think with the exception of maybe randall he is the all-time greatest to ever have blessed the scene.

Recently, I've been revisiting to the countless number of dnb CDs and mix tapes that I have collected over the years. Dieselboy’s DJ mixes are second to none. His studio mixes are simply astounding. My favorites are "The 6ixth Session", "projectHUMAN" and "The Dungeonmaster's Guide". The mixing on these three CDs is so precise it’s scary. Dieselboy’s mixes also typically feature some kind of theme and believe me; Dieselboy knows how to set a mood. Furthermore, Dieselboy's mixing perfection can be witnessed live, which is refreshing because big name dnb headliners often disappoint me. Apparently, being a good producer doesn’t mean you are a good DJ. In my opinion Dieselboy is the most impressive drum & bass DJ on the planet. His mixes are just awesome.

What can I say about the artist who got me into Drum n Bass in first place?
He mixes with the precission of a surgeon, like few or no one else can, he knows how to infiltrate your senses and make you feel what he wants you to feel...

Dieselboy is a total machine and should be viewed as the best Drum N' Bass DJ in the US, ever. His mixing has gone waaaay beyond flawless, as at this point, Dieselboy mixes records that no one else can, literally. As he has won over the respect of the UK's D&B mafia, he has access to numerous dubplates and "one-time" presses that NO ONE else will ever get. Watching him spin is just as incredible, as he does it 100% effortlessly. Many of his mixes are also "one-shots", meaning no-rehearsal, he just mixed it once and pressed it. Dieselboy's best stuff however is the mixtapes that flow in the underground scene. You can barely find them now, but they are very good and simply amazing. I highly recommend everyone into D&B pick up his newest mix "Project Human" and critique it. It is Dieselboy's aim at fusing UK and US D&B together, as he has US hits remixed by UK producers, and UK hits remixed by US producers. He also incorporates not only Jungle and D&B, but also Disco, House, and even Trance. Very innovative, and possibly the most creative mix I've ever heard.
