While the doors to our favourite skanking spots have remained closed throughout the summer, many of us have found solace in the comfort of Netflix and cinema snacks on the sofa. However on the 10th September Austria’s finest, Mainframe Recording’s are shaking things up with ‘Popcorn Machine’. This latest release sees imprint owner DisasZt team up with neuro nobleman The Clamps resulting in a high energy dance-floor track which will kick off the cobwebs and have you ready to return to the raves.
The intro combines spacey pads with tribal hits of percussion, the beats thicken with layers of quick breakbeats before a heavily modulated vocal brings hints of the techy territory in which this track resides. The drop reveals a tear-out path carved of twisting risers and an unavoidably head-banging drum pattern. The dark, heavy and distorted low end combined with the quick, plucking drops give ‘Popcorn Machine’ a vibe of intense action and impending menace worthy of the silver screen.
Well past the centenary of their catalog, Mainframe Recording’s reputation for releasing the highest quality drum and bass has long been established. Pair this with the unwavering support of ever-returning fans to their huge of their live events across Europe, and there’s no question of this brands dedication to and impact on the global drum and bass scene.
