If you like your drum & bass done up the hard way then TR Tactics and Mainframe are prepared to deliver. Having run up a number of serious cuts on imprints ranging from Citrus to Addictive Behaviour, the Austrian duo surface on the always-impressive Mainframe with a healthy dose of kick-ass in tow.
Tech-driven illness powered by berserker basslines and mosh-pit inducing hooks have become the duos signature sound, but the crew reveal an ability to flex on a variety of flavors with the new EP that still keeps it heavy for the hardcore crew.
Bits like “Vision” bring on the goosebumps with a cinematic fear turned to rage before the dark and foreboding “Unreal” shakes out the nightmare vibes with inimitable style. Still, it’s the two collabs that close out the EP that really bring on the heat with The Clamps laying the proper beatdown alongside TR Tactics on “Maggot” before the label boss DisasZt steps in with the aural assault that is the aptly titled “Fuck It.”
Big things from the Mainframe crew as always and TR Tactics setting a blistering pace for those who follow in their wake. Out now as a Beatport exclusive with a worldwide release to follow on September 1—lock yours in here.
