Swiftly following “BANG YOUR HEAD” with Hairitage on iconic independent Electronic label Monstercat last month, DIESEL pushes his signature destructive sound forward as he calls upon Crankdat for a second rager, “HEAT. “HEAT” is the second taste of DIESEL’s forthcoming album, expected to drop in time to dominate this Summer’s festival season. With the unveiling of two monstrous collaborative singles now, fans can expect the rest of the album to be full of destruction and populated with DIESEL’s favorite bass DJs.
Rapidly firing an insane volume of frequencies that flow directly into a heart-pounding pace, DIESEL’s energetic vocals pump up the crowd for the fury approaching. As sirens sound off along with mechanical synths and powerful instrumentals, DIESEL and Crankdat invite all dubstep enthusiasts to ride the rail. Suddenly, all hell breaks loose with a menacing bass line intertwined with hard-hitting vocals, which prove DIESEL and Crankdat are a menacing force to reckon with.
Crankdat and Shaq have been friends since DIESEL entered the bass scene. Forming a friendship that dates back nearly five years, Crankdat played a significant role in the evolution of DIESEL; from creating original music together, to helping DIESEL curate his sets with all new edits and records, their long-time kinship is genuine and inspirational.
Of Crankdat, DIESEL shares, “Christian is one of those artists that make your head turn every time you hear their music. The man is a monster in the studio and I have learned a lot from him. Working together on ‘HEAT’ was special. Releasing our record as a single and on my album with Monstercat just made sense and we’re pumped to finally get it out in the world.”
