DisasZt, is known as the undisputed key-player in Austria’s Drum & Bass scene. With over 15 years of involvement in almost every aspect of the culture he is almost soley responsible for one of the most vibrant drum and bass scenes outside of the UK. He is equally widely regarded as a highly-skilled DJ and producer.
DisasZt started DJing in 1998. In 2001 he took his first foray into production when ‘Get It On’ was licensed to Austrian D&B compilation ‘Inside Aut’. 2002 saw DisasZt begin his ‘Mainframe’ events.

Consisting of huge line-ups and several thousands of attendees over the course of a weekend.
In 2008 Mainframe mutated from a long-running club night into ‘Mainframe Recordings’ one of the most respected D&B labels based outside of the UK.

Mainframe has long received widespread support from the D&B scene’s elite and Radio 1 DJs such as Rene La Vice, Friction, Annie Mac and Mistajam.
