(AURA Music Festival Exclusive
) The third in a series of three Fresh Beatz from AURA artists leading up to the festival...
Drum 'n' bass duo BioDiesel
has spent much of the year--and much of the past few years--on the road, honing their craft. Bassist Clay Parnell and drummer Johnny Rabb pull equal parts influence from The New Deal
and the Disco Biscuits
, straying from straight up live house (though there is some of that) to more of a breaks and jungle stew. In anticipation of next weekend's AURA Music & Arts Festival, taking place March 9-11 in St. Cloud, FL with headliners Papadosio
, Brothers Past
and more, Biodiesel has been kind enough to premiere a live track recorded last July at The Blockley in Philly. "Turnin' Back" is a spacey jam that bounces between infra-conscious samples and bubbling bass licks. Parnell and Rabb possess the chops to keep Biodiesel on the road and keep the fans flooding into their sound.
