Biodiesel ft. Johnny Raab & Rob Parnell
BioDiesel is still steadily churning out their environmentally friendly Intelligent Dance Music. The mission to save the world one show at a time continues...
Serendipity is described as the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. It might have been serendipity at work in late 2006 that brought Johnny Rabb and Clay Parnell together. The connection between Johnny and Clay is undeniable. Maybe it's more than just luck or fate. Perhaps, when you get two top musicians dead set on creating "thinking person's dance music" you have no choice but to get a product like BioDiesel.
Come to think of it, the idea of fate is probably too emasculating to tie in with something as pounding, raw and real as BioDiesel. In the end, who cares if it was God or the Devil that brought these two together? Serendipity or not, be prepared for the onslaught.
Johnny Rabb: (drums/samples)
Johnny Rabb is well known throughout the world for his drumming prowess. He's in that upper echelon of drummers, known for not only his speed but his inventive ability to get various pitches and tones out of his drum kit. He's one of those musicians that needs to be seen to be believed. Johnny has his own line of cymbals and drumsticks and has written books focused on electronic style drumming. He's traveled the world as a clinician and has rightfully achieved sponsorships from such companies as DW Drums, Meinl Cymbals and Roland.
Clay Parnell: (bass/samples)
Clay Parnell has a rich history of performing as the bassist for Brothers Past. Clay has played well over 700 shows across the North American Continent from premiere dance clubs like NYC's Exit and Tampa's Twilight to festivals like Bonnaroo and SxSW. URB Magazine put BP's most recent studio release "at the top of the growing pile of genre bending releases." Recently tapped to perform with members of Toronto's live house legends, the New Deal, Clay is as in demand as ever. His claim to fame has always been his ability to use his instrument to recreate spot on electronic bass tones while adding his own thunderous flavor and taking a unique approach to improvisation.
