Manifesto: “The primary design is to provide an outlet for the release of Dieselboy's material; to promote domestic drum 'n' bass; and to convey Dieselboy's distinct vision, concept and aesthetic,” says Marni Wandner, project manager for System Recordings. “At Human Imprint, output is never rushed; everything proceeds organically, from Dieselboy's venerable Project HUMAN double-disc CD and numerous vinyl releases to the ambitious Dungeonmaster's Guide double-disc CD and three-LP vinyl release. The maxim is always ‘excellence first.’”
A&R Philosophy: Forward-thinking drum 'n' bass. Artists looking to push the envelope. We do accept demos.
Upcoming:The HUMAN Resource double-disc CD and double LP vinyl release, which is a comprehensive anthology of Human Imprint's finest moments to date and a blueprint for the future.
