On October 31st, 2015, Canadians Andrew Heffernan and Ryan Paddle started creating Bass House under the name Diemetic. The duo’s 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 they 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 Diemetic broke the main stage during their set from the high energy performance. Later that summer, Andrew and Ryan made their first ever festival appearance outside of Newfoundland at Messtival in New Brunswick.

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, Whipped Cream and Far Too Loud. In addition, Ryan went on multiple hip-hop tours across Eastern Canada with Billboard top 20 charting artist Merkules, as well as SDK member Evil Ebenezer later that year. Ryan followed this success with another two tours spanning across Europe and Canada with Merkules, Lil Windex, Evil Ebenezer and others.

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. Outside of their live shows, Diemetic began working with Grammy winner Matt Stevens and Matt Simmers.

Diemetic has had a number of high profile successes in 2019 such as releasing two songs titled “Gameboy” and “Dip Em” on an EP with No Tomorrow Recordings featuring artists Hypesetterz and Eff That. “Gameboy” topped the Beatport Electro House charts at number 1 for over a week, and is currently the number 1 song on the No Tomorrow Recordings discography according to Beatport. “Dip Em” was also highly successful being played at the EDC Las Vegas 2019 main stage by Excision and is currently at number 8 on the No Tomorrow Recordings top 10 on Beatport. In addition to musical releases, Diemetic has travelled BC, Alberta, and Newfoundland to play multiple festival performances across Canada in 2019
