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.

Beware of the Yacare Kaiman! Ukrainian hot topic Tapolsky & VovKING are back on Mainframe with a hard-hitting double set of dancefloor bangers.
Having become a staple in Ukraine’s EDM landscape over the past years, the duo has recently shifted its focus purely to Drum & Bass and entered the international scene with releases on high profile labels such as ProgRAM and Technique rightaway. Being known for their uniquely crisp sound, next-level production and a vanguardist approach to rather liquid sounds, Tapolsky & VovKING’s forthcoming single on Mainframe Recordings is definitely their roughest take on the genre so far.
Its massive intro makes “Kaiman” a perfect set opener. Enter the swamp and witness that mean little bastard sneaking up on its prey, cold blooded and ready to strike. The drop hits just as ferocious, twisted and attacky all over the place. With a glitched-out percussive lead theme driven by whiplash snare hits, this one is going to take the crowds with ease.
“Hyperid” on the flip side drags you in with a tribalist percussion loop, building up in tension to burst off as a wicked chimera between Jump Up and Neurofunk that will get the heads spazzing out wild.
