DubApe has always prided himself in being an eclectic producer; hailing from Austria, he’s become an artist who’s defined its wider scene, playing across its clubs which are also some of the most pivotal amongst the genre. Originally specialising in the deeper side of the sound spectrum with his 140 releases, the DJ and producer soon set his sights on the harder, dancefloor styles, something which he’s showcased multiple times on the drum & bass mecca of Mainframe Recordings.
After debuting on the label in 2015, DubApe has continued to be one of the defining forces within their roster. And this time he returns with a brand-new EP which signifies why Mainframe welcomed him into their ranks. His melding of dark, atmospheric sounds are instantly recognisable and this is something which he has injected throughout his forthcoming ‘Parameter’ EP.
The EP begins with its title-track, a record which is unafraid as it builds layer upon layer into an intro goading the listener before catapulting you down its very first breakdown. Each foreboding click of percussion and stab of sub bass takes you on a stepping journey before chaos is unleashed. Longman’s growling vocals only adds to its urgency. ‘Mantra’ follows with the same epicness, a sci-fi inspired cut which robotically builds until the pressure is almost impenetrable. Then it breaks following tribalistic brays, and when it does you’re taken along for the ride, on top of gyrating drum patterns and pounding slabs of kick drum. Following in its path is ‘Fungus’, just as explosive and showing the darker underbelly of DubApe. With subterranean levels of bass, you’re taken fully out into the deep. Then finally you’re introduced into the world of ‘Centipede’. Sliced and diced into slamming segments, it’s a dancefloor orientated record with disjointed cinematic samples, the type of which stand out amongst each painstakingly crafted segment. It shows DubApe’s production standard. One which has brought him into the ranks of Mainframe Recordings and a place he’s slowly grown his art.

Mainframe hasn’t just represented one of the biggest event brands in Vienna, as well as across Europe, but also the record label which branched out from its legendary events series. For nearly two decades they’ve been bringing some of the globe’s hottest drum & bass artists to their stages and have helped develop the careers of its budding producers. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by the entire scene which has watched it grow for seventeen years and to mark this occasion they’re set to drop their ‘17 years of Mainframe Recordings’ album. The LP features an eye watering 18 tracks, all of which provide a snapshot into how the imprint has evolved over the course of its expansion. Including newcomer artists who Mainframe are currently investing in, as well as those who Mainframe have had play at their raucous club nights, there’s a host of tastes catered for. And with a name like Disaszt at the helm, the album, the label and its events have been in good hands.
Tracks like Ripple’s ‘Stranger’, Wingz ‘Definite’, and Halflow’s ‘Progressive ID’ set the mood, showing the talent which Mainframe have at their fingertips when it comes to the fresher waters of drum & bass. Then Mainframe frequenters Dubape, Phentix, Alibi and Smooth pull you into their expert riddims throughout its track listing. Breakpitt & Tenchu offers something different throughout the soundscape of ‘Flashfreeze’ whilst Picota & Kumbh’s ‘Contact’ continues the moodier vibes. Tobax’s cutthroat style is prevalent throughout ‘Overback’ and the head honcho Disaszt returns with Dorian for ‘Boom’. Tuff Gee & Carter’s ‘Pimp Ride’, Manta’s ‘Childhood Memories’, Salaryman’s ‘Soul Reminder’, Akov’s ‘Afterlife’ and Counterstrike’s ‘Fearless’ finishes the exclusively new tracks but there’s more to come, with a VIP treatment of TR Tactics and The Clamps ‘Maggot’.
As an album, it’s a formidable collection of tracks. But when looking at Mainframe’s vast history, they would need such an LP to pay homage to their legacy and ‘17 Years of Mainframe’ certainly delivers. So, sit back and begin your journey through the album, which is sure to bring back memories from the best club nights over recent times.

Following a triumphant year for DJ Disaszt, which last year saw his record ‘In & Out’ featuring Patch Edison gain global recognition, he returns with another hit single on Mainframe Recordings. The head honcho of Mainframe, both the 17-year-old events brand and record label which has moved from its roots in Vienna to becoming a word wider powerhouse, Disaszt has an extraordinary work rate, something which you can see through his own catalogue of releases. But it’s not just the frequency of his output which has turned heads, but also the high levels of musicality demonstrated throughout. Disaszt has proven himself to be a mainstay figure within the Austrian drum & bass scene, as well as further afield, which is why he’s once again looking to reach even greater heights with this new release.
‘Whistle’ takes you back to the hard-lined riddims which Disaszt tears through within his DJ sets. Juxtaposing his track ‘In & Out’, with Patch Edison’s vocals being its center point, ‘Whistle’ is aimed more for the dancefloor. Its flipping drum progressions and hooked beats add to its club appeal, although with Disaszt himself having spent nearly twenty years building the live section of his Mainframe platform, it comes as no surprise that he’d be able to inject this same energy into own music.
But ‘Whistle’ doesn’t just signpost another addition to the discography of Mainframe, but also for Disaszt’s own career. Having spent years helping to create a pedestal for other producers, he’s taking the spotlight and in doing so is expanding his own horizons as an artist.

A label that’s spent seventeen years curating its line ups and delivering music of the same high quality, Mainframe Recordings is back with another EP showing they’re still on their A-game. Label head Disaszt has called upon many of the artists who’ve played on the infamous Mainframe stages to put their production against some of the label’s mainstay staples. There are four new revises debuted on the forthcoming ‘Twisted’ EP, with the full package set to drop in August with each track being dropped over four consecutive weeks, signaling how important the label has become since their takeover of the Viennese club world nearly two decades prior. Calling on producers Smooth, Hamilton, Dorian and Erb n Dub, there’s a sound to fit every listener and one thing can be certain… That this EP was made for the dancefloor and that’s exactly what the EP’s originals were designed for, too.
Smooth is the first to come forward and his version of Erb n Dub and Disaszt’s track Stop has the same tear out power with its drum programming and slamming pads. Slovenian Smooth has a knack for hard basslines and precisely grafted hooks, something which is apparent as soon as his version ignites.
RAM Records roster artist Hamilton follows with his remix of Dorian & Skore Powertool, a mean old-school roller which carries itself with stabbing bass riffs. This EP has been precisely curated to maintain Mainframe’s superiority and the old-school rhythms of Hamilton aids that.
Dorian then makes another appearance, this time through his own remix of Kutlo’s Raw, as nasty as its prototype and channeling the same crackling LFOs. It’s a hurter, something you’d imagine on the set list of any Mainframe night.
Araonic’s Stomp is given the Erb n Dub treatment, starting with the same lulling intro before its chaotic lasers begin. It switches into a midsection slammer, before pulling the curtains on a short documentary of Mainframe’s history over the last seventeen years. The neck-snapping intensity of these records speak for themselves. It’s once again time to re emerge yourself in the world of Mainframe, converging the skills of its guests into one EP.
