Diesler’s first release was “Cotton Wool”, part of Tru Thoughts “Shapes One” compilation: despite being written when he was only 20, the song still found its way onto Radio 1, a massive achievement for a debut track. This success was followed with the “Ladies And Gentlemen Get Your Engines Ready” EP in June 2004; a mixture of smooth, laid-back vibes and up tempo beats, from jazz and funk to latin rhythms, it showcased Dieslers globe-trotting sound, and magpie-like ear for the best samples, to devastating effect.

He followed that up with his debut album & double vinyl EP releases “Diggin It Somethin’ Rotten” in April 2005 and a calendar year later with “Keepie Uppies”, both of which are on the Tru Thoughts label. His third album, “The Rhythm Station”, was released in October 2007 on Freestyle Records and a remixes compilation, “Tracks On The Rocks” in 2009.

Aside from his own work Diesler has been remixing all over the place for labels including Ninja Tune (UK), Jugglin/Raw Fusion (Sweden), Hi-Top (Spain), Schema (Italy), Tru Thoughts (UK), Catskills (UK), Freestyle (UK) Sunday Best (UK), Soultage (Japan), Record Kicks (Italy).

Away from the studio Diesler has been putting the miles of late making DJ appearances at Festivals both in the UK, Europe & Japan, from UK super clubs Chibuku Shake Shake (Liverpool) & The End (London) to many respected club nights across the world. Also this year he puts the 8 piece band, Diesler Live Experience, on the road performing tunes from the Diesler catalogue.

In addition to all his original work Diesler produced two songs for Tru Thoughts vocalist Kinny on her “Idle Forest Of Chit Chat” LP and has worked on the soul project Laura Vane & The Vipertones whose debut LP came out in August 2009 gaining support from Jonathan Ross, Mark Lemarr & Craig Charles (BBC Radio, UK).

With his fourth album Mr. Diesler, a truly unique musician and individual, has knocked out yet another killer LP that provides a 360 degree genre agenda – an overview of the 2010 nu-jazz scene encompassing hip-hop, funk, soul, house, broken beat, afro beat and electronica – The In Sound From Way Out! Don’t miss his regular show on that goes by the same name folks!

The LP features the vocal talents of Laura Vane (The Streets, MJ Cole, Laura Vane & The Vipertones), Stee Downes (Sonar Kollektiv), Linda Bloemhard (Kraak & Smaak, The Jazzinvaders), regular Diesler collaborator Double Yellow and Caroline Ekstrom from Stockholm electronic group IOU.
