TR Tactics still on the rise! Austria’s most wanted firestarters are back for more with their
heavyweight “Rise Of The Galaxy” split EP’s second instalment.
Since at least by the release of their chart peaking “Vision” EP in Autumn 2017, which has been making big waves throughout the Neurofunk hemisphere, little more needs to be said about their sound: Uncompromising, straight-forward Dance Floor Mayhem – you know the deal! Subsequently, the duo’s take on the myth of creation is telling a tale of darkness, light and raw power, coming to life as sinister techy soundscapes, dirty bass sounds and jaw breaking drums, which will be striking club floors worldwide in uncut anger.
When Part One was all about the flash, the heat & the bang, Part Two now takes on the forces behind, and the dimensions beyond human caprice. Witness “The Creator” getting its job done with a stringent triplet swagger, while “Dark Matter” on the Flip side does its name justice with tons of gravity dragging you down into evil blackness.
TR Tactics have been roaming the scene since 2013, holding account for numerous acclaimed releases on Mainframe, Disturbed, Citrus and Addictive Behaviour, playing out gigs at large scale events like Let it Roll, and having teamed up with artists such as The Clamps, DisasZt, Rhyme Tyme, Optiv, BTK and Phentix.
Mainframe Recordings is celebrating its 100th release, and we’re overly happy to be joined by North Base, certainly one of Drum & Bass music’s most vibrant outfits these days.
North Base has been joining forces with DisasZt, renowned for his ruffneck trademark sound paired with broad musical versatility. ‘This Life’ is a soaring vocal tune incorporating ethereal pads and classic drum breaks, capturing feelings of urban solitude in a both mentally and physically moving way.
‘This Life’ is released in vanguard of Mainframe’s MFR100 jubilee album (to be released 01/06/18). Stay tuned for more…

“Rise Of The Galaxy” and “Modulism” on the Flip side make up issue #1 of TR Tactics’ forthcoming two-part release – To be continued…
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.
Beatport Exclusive: 08/12/2017
Worldwide Release: 22/12/2017
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.
Released: 27/02/2017 (Beatport Exclusive)

3rd of September 2016, Vienna, Austria, Arena Club…this is when and where the Mainframe Open Air Festival 2016 took place and it was a blast!
We thought that the best way to keep this memory is to put together an Album from the core Artists performing at the festival, their latest, newest vibes in one bundle of goodness.
Since the compilation features Artists of many subgenres, it is a very versatile and exciting mixture of liquid, jungle, neuro, soulful and more.
It is a very elegant selection that will make you remember the Summer 2016.
This was Mainframe Open Air Festival 2016.
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.
