Can’t stop the DubApe! Once a devotee to the broken beats at around 140 BPM, and enjoying prominent support from J:Kenzo, N-Type and Truth, the Austrian studio wizard has meanwhile fully dedicated himself to the techy side of Drum & Bass and is known for reconciling musical versatility with a distinct signature sound, characterized by decently sculpted soundscapes, powerhouse bass lines and crispy drums.
Enjoy some serious rinse-out on the opening track, “Delirium”, when DubApe’s dystopian signature rave sound is doing proper damage as it is known and loved for. On “Why”, DubApe is creating a dope atmosphere with nothing more than an enigmatic vocal sample, some squelchy bass sounds and sparsely set but still tremendously rolling beats. All minimal and stripped down to the bone, “Why” is a subtle banger for the sophisticated.
“One Year” is coming in just as deep, sparking an ambiguous vibe of stone cold funk and industrial soul. With a wildly disassembled vocal bending itself around swaying half-time beats, its wicked shuffle will put spines to the test – true neck snapper!
For the closing track, DubApe is teaming up with vocalist Patch Edison, who delivers both a soulfully sung Hook over catchy piano chords as well as bullet proof rap lines when the drop hits. “Unstoppable” is a deep Neurofunk infused roller, enriched with a nice pinch of anthemic pop appeal.

Soundboy Killa / Humanlike feat. Talabun MC
After a successful feature on the Mainframe Soldiers series, DubApe contributes to our major catalogue with a 2-track single, which brings us back to the young times before splitting up the DubApes duo.
The title track, “Soundboy Killa”, is dominated by dark sounds, which is always the case in DubApe’s production style. The combination of those sounds, a rhythmic percussion and the majestic sub bass are the three essential ingredients for the masterpiece delivered by the young men.
The second track, Humanlike, is a collaboration with the vocalist Talabun, active in the Drum&Bass and Dubstep scene. The fusion between his unique and dark vocals and the particular sounds of DubApe won’t let you stand still!
