2017 has been a big year for Vienna’s main man DisasZt – renowned producer, owner of Mainframe Recordings and head promoter behind one of Europe’s largest recurring event series under the same brand.
Not only is his latest collab release (‘Stop’ alongside Erb N Dub) currently inciting serious chaos on floors worldwide. His recent productions have displayed a new level of versatility, with decent tunes such as ‘Vogue’ on Viper, and ‘I Got U’ (in collaboration with Brazil’s Alibi) on V Recordings bringing deep vibes and melodic sweetness to the table.
His upcoming release on Mainframe sees Disaszt shifting back to berzerk mode in style, with a crooked “Disco Ninja” lurking behind the corner, ready to strike. All dirty analogue sounding and with tons of bass line pressure, there’ll be blood on the dance floor when its boomy drums hit the crowd – pure danger!
“Shorty” on the Flip side takes you down to the deeper realms of digital mystics. A stylistic cross-breed, sounding future and retro alike, its snappy drums and bouncy bassline will make the fellas jump.

Because they can’t, they won’t, and they don’t stop…
Fresh collab tune forthcoming on Mainframe Recordings sees DisasZt’s sense for raw impact and Erb N Dub’s rather playful approach to the rinse-out business come together in a perfect blend.
Hailing from Brighton, Erb N Dub has become a staple in the UK Drum & Bass scene, with releases on RAM, Technique and Playaz, remixes for DJ Fresh, Foreign Beggars and, not least, his recent joint with Krafty Kuts alongside Harry Shotta, which earned him heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1.
Likewise, Vienna’s DisasZt, the man behind Mainframe Recordings and one of Europe’s largest recurring event series under the same brand, can’t exactly complain about a lack of airplay these days. With decent tunes such as ‘Vogue’ on Viper, and ‘I Got U’ (in collaboration with Brazil’s Alibi) on V Recordings, he has recently surprised his followers by bringing deep vibes and melodic sweetness to the table. On ‘Stop’, he now recollects the tried-and-true heavyweight formula he is known and loved for.
Dark and doomy all the way, meandering synth lines and bleepy signals pile up into a throbbing wall of sound, subsequently being riddled by percussive drumfire and chain punch bass hits. Armed with some extra nasty Rave stabs and bass sweeps engaging in call-and-response with that notorious Beastie Boys sample, DisasZt and Erb N Dub are definitely rockin’ the sure shot on this one.

>> Slangsta-Rap VS Drum&Bass – Round One – Fight! << Mit ANSA, seines Zeichens ehemaliger Frontliner der Rap-Combo Die Vammumtn und dem Produzentenduo Body & Soul hauen sich zwei Big Player des heimischen Undergrounds auf ein Packl und geben euch 100% Crowdrocking – mehr geht ned!
Egal ob Battle oder Feierei, ob mit der Vamummtn Crew oder auf Solopfaden – der ANSA foahrt amoi grundsätzlich drüber. Ähnlich angriffslustig präsentieren sich die Sounds der St. Pöltner Breakbeat- Zampanos Body & Soul, die seit geraumer Zeit heimische wie internationale Tanzböden aufmischen, und das mit Verlass. Mit vereinter Schlagkraft will man nun den Homeboys das Raven und den Drum&Bass Heads das Bouncen lehren. Dabei treffen ANSAs gefeierte Mundart-Raps auf wuchtige Halftime-Beats und filthy Basslines, und es geht dabei vor allem um eins: Eskalation!
All jene, die’s nicht schnell genug haben können und unheilbar auf die 2 und 4 fixiert sind, werden mit dem Remix auf der B-Side bestens bedient. Dort haben Producer DubApe und Label-Don DisasZt den Track in einen Jump-Up-lastigen, straighten Twostepper verwandelt, der dem Original in Sachen Impact und Roughness um nichts nachsteht und garantiert zu jeder Uhrzeit funktioniert. „Hundat Prozent“ bildet den Auftakt einer Serie von gemeinsamen Releases, die in den kommenden Monaten auf Mainframe Recordings erscheinen werden. It’s going to rumble in the jungle…
Activate! On its A-Side, Mainframe Recordings’ first release in 2017 sees prolific label head DisasZt joining forces with sound wizard DubApe to fire off a nice salvo of rave stabs, the very type that’s been driving fellow Hardcore Junglists mental since back in the warehouse days. Enjoy the flashback – it won’t last long. The immediate punch of 2017’s cutting edge drums will take you right back to the present.
Elaborate Build-up science joining in a highly energetic dystopian craze and heavy impact bass growls… This shape-shifting beast was born to wreak havoc on floors worldwide.
Razor, on the the flip side, is coming deep down from the foggy dungeons of dark steppin’ underground. All grim and gritty, with snappy drums funkin’ things up, a gnarly buzzing Reese bass cuts its way through dense sound textures like a rusty razor blade – pure pressure! This one’s going to keep the shadow boxing army under siege.

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!

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.
