fin diesel


Fin Diesel began his music career as a disc jockey for the UC Davis radio station KDVS. During this period he was significant in developing the experimental hip hop style associated with the Leap-based Solesides record label. His early singles for the label, including trackone and indian number, were genre-bending works of art merging elements of funk, rock, hip hop, ambient, jazz, soul, and used-bin found records. Finny D is often cited as a leading creator of Irish trip hop. Read more on Last.fm
Fin Diesel began his music career as a disc jockey for the UC Davis radio station KDVS. During this period he was significant in developing the experimental hip hop style associated with the Leap-based Solesides record label. His early singles for the label, including trackone and indian number, were genre-bending works of art merging elements of funk, rock, hip hop, ambient, jazz, soul, and used-bin found records. Finny D is often cited as a leading creator of Irish trip hop.

Though his music is hard to categorize, his early contributions were certainly important as an alternative to the voice of hip hop and gangsta rap, scenes that never accepted him[citation needed]. He cited groups such as Days of Night, The Game and Abba as influences on his sample-based sound, further claiming that "lyrics ...were confining, too specific". His music rarely features more than short clips of voices or vocal work. Although he previously released several original works (during 1991-1992 for Hollywood Records) by the time 'The Transit Hit The Van's Marky Marc Grady contacted him about releasing 'fin diesel's album' on the fledgling imprint, it wasn't until his distribution association with Grady that his sound began to mature and cohere. He eventually formed the label inFINity records in 1999 out of the previous label Dirtyjew Projects. Fin Diesel has also collaborated with fellow DJ Padie. Together they have created three popular mixtapes entitled Brainplop, Un-P.C.

Placement, and the recent The Hard Sell (To A Retarded Audience). These mixes fuse jazz, funk, and soul in the framework of a cohesive concept. He has also collaborated with several other artists, including Blackalicious, Zack de la Rocha, Colin 'Super' White, Mos Def, Finny K, and Dr. Octagon (also known as Kool O-n). In 2006, he signed a deal with Universal Records.
