NC-17, the Canadian daredevil, is giving us that clean but heavy, mind-crushing sound that he is the best at leaving us with an intense experience.
The distressing high notes, pulsating mid-range bass and the drums that accompany them certainly take us to the abandoned rainforest that keeps all kinds of surprises, then to the evacuated city hospital where there is very small chance of escape.
NC-17 teams up with KG & Emery to bring you Predator. They come from the world where there are no rules, they are the ultimate enemy killing for pleasure hunting for sport. This track raises everyone’s pulse gives the reality of the ultimate manhunt.
Side B in collaboration with Fade & Emery takes trudging sounds that animate zombie steps and mixes them with some madly stressful high notes and drums creating the illusion of the apocalypse. It is the Night of the Zombies!
Prepare for the crazy, prepare for the interrupted evil… These two new bangers will definitely hit the clubs hard!
Release: 02/12/2016 (Beatport Exclusive)
Darpa is a newcomer to our team, two very talented guys from Hungary, bringing a very unique, alternative, energetic sound into the scene.
…It’s here, it’s contagious, it’ll destroy you…Epidemic!
The symptoms include heavy breathing, goose bumps, fidgeting legs and the immediate widening of pupils.
The rules are simple…. Everyone dies!
The track nicely plays with an aligned set of drums, unique harsh stabs and eerie high-octane synths, but the real effect cannot be described in terms of drums and kicks.
Night King is an intriguing drum-funk-neuro mixture with a low base and heavy drums, creating trouble …he is coming…The Night King. The intro is scary, the track is dark and the beat is jungly enough to bring about the perfect vibe that transports you to the Haunted Forest and the Land of Always Winter…The Night King has found you…the only question is: Can you wake up from the dream?
These two tracks, although not the same pace, gender, style, go along really well with each other, one makes the other even stronger.
3rd of September 2016, Vienna, Austria, Arena Club…this is when and where the Mainframe Open Air Festival 2016 took place and it was a blast!
We thought that the best way to keep this memory is to put together an Album from the core Artists performing at the festival, their latest, newest vibes in one bundle of goodness.
Since the compilation features Artists of many subgenres, it is a very versatile and exciting mixture of liquid, jungle, neuro, soulful and more.
It is a very elegant selection that will make you remember the Summer 2016.
This was Mainframe Open Air Festival 2016.
TR Tactics – Illuminate / Dark Universe
Released: 16/09/16 – Beatport Exclusive
TR Tactics is back with their signature powerful sounds and iconic neuro-sounding drum and bass. Renewing their style the well-known Austrian duo is providing us with two tracks where everything is in place.
Illuminate is a track that either makes you run and run fast or it makes you lose your mind on the dance floor, either way you can’t sit calmly when it is blasting in your ears. The clean riffs and hard-hitting drums make this track the forerunner of neu-neuro, which would be a more popular family to the old neuro sounds. Illuminate juxtaposes the traditional sound design of neuro and a more minimalist build-up that makes it flow unstoppably.
Dark Universe on the other hand –nomen est omen- is more classical in the neurofunk sense, it takes us deep into the void, the non-observable, the mysterious. The drums are massive and the track nicely incorporates some techno vibe. The lengthened notes let the listener lose total control.
I can see Milla Jovovich’s determined face going against zombies, outnumbered… Total Resident Evil vibe.

2015 is definitely DisasZt’s year! The label head-honcho teams up this time with one of the MC legends in the Drum & Bass Scene, MC Coppa, and brings you the ‘Trojan Horse’ After the collaboration single with Protune & a feature in the Mainframe Soldiers Series, DisasZt returns into the scene with an epic, yet perfect track to finish up this summer in a breath-taking way, showing his intention to create something personal but relevant to the whole scene. A combination of intricate drum edits, a heavy complex sound & precise vocals: The ‘Trojan Horse’ will be stopping wherever you want. Also joining up on this single are two duos, Telekinesis and our label-own fire starters Dossa & Locuzzed. Telekinesis’ remix is stepping up the level of heaviness, incorporating their dominant style, once again with Coppa’s vocals. Finishing up this masterpiece is Dossa&Locuzzed’s remix, calming down the mood with a tremendous array of drum patterns and typical bass growls. The Austrian duo is showing us, yet again, the power of their production style.
After the astonishing Volume 1, Mainframe Recordings brings you Volume 2 of the Mainframe Soldiers Series, showcasing more heavyweight D&B from an array of Mainframe’s contributing artists. Opening up with a track from a newcomer duo, Air K & Cephei, Duality is an emotive but still powerful masterpiece. Were excited to bring this production duo to the ears of Mainframe listeners. Also, label owner Disaszt returns once more with a supreme slice of tech-funk, Cracknail, which should give you an idea of what is forthcoming by the head of Mainframe. Next Up is Isee who joins the Mainframe Soldiers Crew with an edgy & dark neurofunk anthem, accompanied by booming vocals. Substorm is the next dance floor hymn delivered by Isee, after the 3 remixes (more…)
