Renegade Riddims: IAMDOOMED


Formerly known as Dorian, Vienna based producer Dominik Chatsakos created his new alias IAMDOOMED after moving away from Dorian’s Neuro and Jump Up roots to focus on the deeper spectrum of Drum & Bass.

With his early beginnings in producing, he felt that his releases should be put in the limelight. That’s when his career as a DJ started and his tunes began to thrill the masses. Backed by the instant support of the crowd, he jumped at the chance and fittingly released a Jump Up EP as his debut in 2014: ‘Whore Island’ EP which came on Switch! Recordings.

Once he had the ball rolling, one release followed another and several labels scrambled to get a piece of him. His tunes came out on Viper Recordings, New Playaz, Mainframe Recordings, Innerground Records, Animated Records, Blu Saphir and so on. As he had built up a reputation, his tracks got supported by well-established names of the Drum & Bass scene, like Pendulum, DJ Hype, Friction, S.P.Y, The Prototypes, Annix, DJ Bailey, René LaVice, Nicky Blackmarket, Roni Size, Heist, Tyke, Zen, Rawtee, and many more.

Always a welcomed face at clubs local or abroad, he himself states that he doesn’t want to nail himself down to specific subgenres, which his diverse supporters are pleased with. Certainly an easygoing fellow with a knack for homemade perfectionism, we will surely hear about him in the years to come.

Among releases on Low Down Deep and Delta 9 this year, IAMDOOMED has most notably been picked up by S.P.Y’s DARKMTTR label to release the single ‘Toxic’ which has done significant damage in S.P.Y’s sets of late.

With more quality music to come, IAMDOOMED is definitely one to watch out for in 2022.

Today IAMDOOMED joins our Renegade Riddims series with a mix containing loads of unreleased material from himself and more music from the likes of Kyrist, Molecular, Melinki & D’cypher, Minor Forms, Dedman and loads more!

Q & A:

Sum up this mix in 10 words…

If your soul needs dark, deep, dirty & funky vibes, enjoy.

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

That is a tough one, but I pick my forthcoming track “Everything” because I love to be versatile and this track shows the opposite of my darker sound.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

I think it’s a great mixture of many styles I love.

Tell us about your next EP?

I like to have themes in my tunes to paint a picture of a little story. I think ‘Toxic’ does that well. ‘Everything’ is a chilled classic-style roller, which rounds up this release well, I think.

What have you got coming up?

I made a lot of new music during Covid, and some will be coming up on S.P.Y`s Label DARKMTTR Records. So keep an ear out for that!

When was the last time you actually raved?

The most memorable recent rave was at Let it Roll, AMC was playing. He destroyed the dancefloor. What a great day with many friends and cool new people. But actually, I want to add that my soul is always raving when I feed it with DNB. 😄

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

Big thanks to every raver out there. This is a great opportunity to show you my perspective on drum and bass, which I feel and love. I hope you enjoy the mix.
