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.

DubApe, one outstanding, peculiar artist of the Mainframe family does for sure stand for
himself releasing two highly energetic tracks with such a grip no one can leave them
This time he moved away from the more deepspace chillout music to making cyber
punkesque neurofunk tracks.
Zero Point featuring Deafblind forces your heart to follow its lead. The frequent pauses and
the high notes mixed with low base perfectly indicate the quantum vacuum zero point
energy. Everything starts here.
AI is definitely a robotic track, full of mind-crashing riffs that give you a post apocalyptic, endof-
The two tracks could easily stand for birth and death, the zero and the end.

Dossa & Locuzzed, the highly appreciated Austrian production duo is out with two fresh and very catchy tracks.
Side A – 24/7 featuring Mc Daxta, Austria’s word-shuffling pride is truly a heartfelt declaration of Love to the Music we’re all livin’, a finely-calibrated, cleverly-written track. Joining forces with Daxta they for sure created a Drum and Bass anthem, that depicts the performance, lets the listener be privy to the actions on stage, feel the energy, the smoke the sweat, the vibe, the bouncing crowd…
The popping lyrics and burning sounds will definitely make you fidget wherever you are!
Side B is a happy healing liquid track that truly soothes the mind with the light vocals, deep bassline and sound effects so satisfying that it couldn’t have received a better title than Magic.
Summer is definitely here!

Dorian, one of the Mainframe Recordings Soldiers, steps up in the game and celebrates his single debut with “Stresstest/Fluid Sound” on the label.
After numerous features on compilations from different labels such as the Mainframe Soldiers Volume 3 & “The Final Chapter” – the brilliant young producer released the “Unknown EP” on New Playaz – the sister label of DJ Hype’s label Playaz.
With this new single, Dorian delivers us two masterpieces, showing off his signature sounds which he has accomplished during the last years.
“Stresstest”, the A-Side, is an aggressive, yet epic track. Driven by tightly snapping kicks, and being hit repeatedly by pounding subs – the young Austrian talent definitely gives us a touch of his unique style.
However, Dorian delivers us the complete opposite with “Fluid Sound”, the B-Side of this marvellous release. A melodic & powerful track marked by a combination of chilly percussion and striking note progressions. This is the perfect record to kick off the summer!

We proudly welcome back one of our old friends, Receptor! The very talented young Russian producer has already released two tracks on Mainframe Recordings – First off, his track “Flash To Flash” has been on the flipside of Camo & Krooked’s famous single “Vision” (MFR002) – the second track “Cigarette Lighter” was featured on the “Together EP” with records by the likes of DisasZt, BTK, Ruckus Keepers and others.
And now we have a perfect comeback with a 2-track single: “Crossover/Okay” – A great mix between dark, and experimental.
“Crossover”, the single title track is marked by obscure bass lines, quick-fire percussion, striking breaks and finished up by MC Swift’s dusky vocals. The perfect combination for a dark neurofunk track!
On the flipside, “Okay” is a fresh piece of Drum & Bass, influenced by the unique experimental production skills, which Receptor has accomplished during his astonishing career.

Remix time! After the big success of NC-17‟s “Sex, Drugs, Lies, Alcohol & Video Tape” EP, which came out on Mainframe Recordings, we have sent out two of our best producers on remix duty, and this is what came out: „NC-17 RMXD‟.
First off, Dossa & Locuzzed used their magic touch to transform NC-17‟s “Soldiers” into a rolling banger, a new style delivered by the Austrian duo, showing us again their ability to perfect each and every “kind” of Drum & Bass.
The other artist who has been sent on remix duty is Mindscape. The very well-known Hungarian producer used his unique style on NC-17‟s collaboration with QO, “We Rollin”, and dropped us again a massive dance floor hit!
