After 15 years of involvement in D&B, Austrian promoter, DJ, label boss and producer Disaszt is about to step his already-illustrious career up a notch with the release of his debut album, >Shadow & Lightening<. Forthcoming on Disaszts own label, the highly respected Mainframe Recordings, the album promises to be packed with the dancefloor-filling, filthy drum & bass sound for which Austria and Disaszt have become well known. This single is the second of five from >Shadow & Lightening< and delivers two immense slices of filthy-yet-funky drum & bass that herald great things for the forthcoming album.
‘Terror War’ sees Disaszt link up with fellow Austrian Kos and Tenchu for one of the most original dancefloor slayers you will hear all year. Tightly LFO’d synth bass subsides into a relentless drop, pushed on by a frenetic ride-led rhythm, complete with amen fills and a nasty, stuttering bassline.
One of Disaszt’s solo productions, ‘Rebound’, gets a re-working from the little-known Egoshotta on the flip, with breathtaking results. A less aggressive groove than ‘Terror War’ but no less energetic, ‘Rebound’ is yet another slice of pure quality from Mainframe, fusing sci-fi soundscapes, distorted vocal samples and twisted bass licks over an irresistible groove.
