DisasZt feat. Phentix & Patch Edison – In & Out
Label: Mainframe Recordings
Release date: 31/08/18
Catalog number: MFR103
Mainframe Recordings was born from the seminal drum & bass event which has helped shape the Austrian scene across decades. Vienna has often stood as a central hub for one of dance music’s most full-frontal genres, which is why the city has remained a hotspot, but it’s not just for their events. Mainframe Recordings has proven that they’re also able to deliver the stellar sounds which infiltrate their club spaces and adding to their decorated discography is none-other than head honcho DisasZt. He joins forces with fellow Austrian Phentix, who’s already graced the back catalogues of imprints such as Critical, Cyberfunk and Eatbrain, so it comes as no surprise that he’d add his technical aptitude to collaboration alongside Mainframe’s executive.
‘In & Out’ is a summer-infused record which pays homage to the old-school, whilst also dipping into more contemporary waters with its sky high levels of production and solid engineering. Patch Edison adds his growling vocals on top of its mix, giving an edge which juts out amongst streaming percussion and zipping bass notes. The sudden breakdown is unexpected following the record’s intro with its peppered synths and soon you’re pulled deep into the composition, unable to remove yourself from its energy. Both Phentix and DisasZt prove that Austria remains at the pinnacle of the drum & bass game and just one listen to their forthcoming record goes to show that.
