A drum & bass mix so excellent that it helped launch Skrillex's blog. Dieselboy has been an ambassador for stateside drum & bass, and has a knack for churning out some of the best themed mixes in any genre. For Beyond the Black Bassline, he imagined a world where minds were open and ready to accept new things; it is a great way to introduce today's EDM fan to the genre of drum & bass, which many might not be as familiar with these days. Bonus points for not mixing a bunch of unreleased dubplates. but highlighting some of the best in the must that's out now. Mixed in Dieselboy's precise style, this is definitely the finest of his series of mixes.
