Diemetic literally broke the main stage during his set at Summer Soulstice Festival

On October 31st, 2015, Canadian Andrew Heffernan started creating Bass House under the name Diemetic. The debut release "Get Down" was quickly picked up by Vacation Records and Diemetic’s debut 3 track EP in 2016 "Natural Sweetener" was also signed to the label. “Natural Sweetener” charted on the Vacation Records top 10 Beatport list for over a year.

Throughout 2016 Diemetic performed weekly at multiple venues downtown in St. John's, Newfoundland, where he started building a reputation for playing some of the most unique and underground Bass House sets in the province. The summer of 2016 featured Diemetic at a number of festivals, notably Summer Soulstice where the stage broke during Diemetic's performance due to the high energy set.

In 2017, Diemetic followed these successes into multiple festival appearances across the Maritimes such as Future Forest, Shakedown Bass, and Backwoods Beats playing with names such as Downlink, Truth, Ill Phil, Far Too Loud, and Whipped Cream.

Diemetic made global appearances in 2018, playing on the same lineup as DJ Snake and Otto Knows at Peace & Love in Borlänge, Sweden; opening for Sullivan King and Subject 31 in Edmonton; Curiosity Music Festival in British Columbia, and headlining in Anchorage Alaska at the annual Halloween rave, “Nocturnal”. Diemetic also performed in a multi-city tour across the Maritimes stopping in Halifax, Sydney, Moncton, and Fredericton with acts such as Far Too Loud and Pineo & Loeb.

In 2019 Diemetic signed to No Tomorrow Recordings. Under No Tomorrow Recordings he released two songs titled “Gameboy” and “Dip Em” featuring fellow Canadian artists Hypesetterz and Eff That. “Gameboy” topped the Beatport Electro House charts at number 1 for over a week, and was also the number 1 song on the No Tomorrow discography according to Beatport. “Dip Em” was also highly successful being played at EDC Las Vegas 2019 and at Lost Lands 2019  by Excision . "Dip Em" also charted at number 6 on the No Tomorrow Recordings top 10 on Beatport. In October of 2019 Diemetic followed this success with another release with Rico Act on "Bass Face". Bass Face charted in Beatport Electro House for over 2 weeks peaking at number 6. In addition to musical releases in 2019, Diemetic again traveled across Canada to perform at festivals in BC, Alberta, and Newfoundland.

2020 was a challenging year for many artists due to the Covid-19 pandemic however Diemetic released a 4 track EP on No Tomorrow Recordings with remixes titled "In the PIt", another single "Underground" and an official remix for No Face Records Lucky Vegas & Msystem - Hot Stuff. In addition to the releases, Diemetic did a full hour long mix for No Tomorrow as part of the 50th song release on the label. Outside of song releases there were multiple live stream festival performances. Outside of music, Diemetic officially relocated from living in Newfoundland to Edmonton Alberta to further his musical career.

In 2021 Diemetic has started strong off the strong with "In the Pit" EP collaborator MozX with their song "Bassheads". As of writing the song has amassed over 35,000 streams on Spotify in under a month and also charted on the Beatport Electro House charts peaking at number 34 as well as support from international artists such as SWAGE and others.

Early Beginnings[]

Andrew originally got involved with music in high school however it was not until 2015 when he became serious about perusing production as a legitimate career path. In 2015 during Neon Steve's set in the Fractal Forest at Shambhala pushed him to take his passion in music and turn it into a career. Diemetic's First EP "Natural Sweetener" was released shortly after on Bass Kleph's label, Vacation Records. The success of this record led Diemetic on a variety of shows across the east coast of Canada including Mestival in New Brunswick! The success of the record and the shows thereafter pushed Diemetic even harder to make his dreams a reality.
