DisasZt collabs with Marianna Ray on ‘Don’t Know Us’
Mainframe Recordings main man DisasZt returns to the imprint he founded. Fresh off the back of his latest release on RAM Records, he is back with a summer-ready rumbler destined to cast an undeniable glow of glorious uplifting energy.
DisasZt, is an undisputed key-player in Austria’s Drum & Bass scene, thanks to over 17 years involvement in almost every aspect of the culture. He originally began his career in Drum & Bass way back in 1998 when he formed the Bass Infection Crew with fellow Austrians Phazes and Dom.n.k and began to pick up bookings across Austria.
In 2002, DisasZt began his Mainframe events, the popularity of which led to a move to a massive 2,000 capacity venue. 2006 saw DisasZt begin Zoo Club, billed as a “melting pot for urban culture and music“, and the following year saw the launch of his Basscity series of events, designed to give exposure exclusively to Austrian artists. Since 2011 he’s been staging the yearly Mainframe Open Air Festival, with massive line-ups and several thousands of attendees a day.
In 2008 Mainframe mutated from a long-running club night into one of the most respected Drum & Bass labels outside of the UK. Mainframe are known for discovering and pushing Camo & Krooked and numerous other talents such as Fourward and Dossa & Locuzzed. They receive widespread support from the D&B scene’s elite and Radio 1 DJs such as Friction, Annie Mac and Mistajam.
Fast forward to the present day and the prolific DisasZt teams up with singer/songwriter and Drum & Bass vocalist Marianna Ray for his next release ‘Don’t Know Us’. The track sees DisasZt pair lashings of euphoric, early rave style piano chords with a subtle undertone of darkness from the omnipresent sub, which levels this hand-in-the-air sing-a-long with a touch of dancefoor grit. Marianna’s powerful vocal adds an allure to the track that almost impossible to ignore, prepare a nest for this season’s earworm, because believe us once you hear that hook you’ll be hearing it in your minds in for a long time to come!
