LABELS // INVISIBLE RECORDINGS - METHLAB - EATBRAIN - BLACKOUT - BAD TASTE RECORDINGS
2018 finds Disprove on the doorstep of big things, with a hungry and fanatical fanbase eager for his next material and having gained the support of leading labels Invisible, Critical and Eatbrain and become a firm member of the MethLab collective. Those who are familiar with his unique brand of tech-focussed drum and bass and halfstep can already see clearly the big future that lies ahead for this talented producer.
He entered the DnB scene in 2015, following a focus on bass music that included ‘LOCKHEED’ - a collaboration with Teknian & Ordure on INSPECTED with UKF support, as well as a remix of Black Sun Empire’s track ‘hideous’ released through BLACKOUT, as well as a number of releases on US labels Ammunition and Caliber. In 2015 he was catapulted into the ears of the tech dnb scene with the release of ‘Wardrive’ and ‘Arkaik Twelve’ (with talented upcoming producer SIGNAL) on Renegade Hardware following his ‘Bad Body’ collaboration on the label with Maztek. His evolved sense of precision and fresh sound caught the ears of EATBRAIN who released his much sought-after track ‘FRQNCS’ as well as ‘Tip Slip’ on their ‘Mirror Universe’ LPs and commissioned him for the 'Damage' EP that floored the Eatbrain audience. NOISIA re-released his anthem ‘Negative Dots’ on their INVISIBLE RECORDINGS imprint and commissioned further releases in 2016 including the anthemic 'Call The Shots', which was followed up in 2018 with his collaborative EP with Signal - 'Mantura'. The release of his 'Obscurity' EP and the 'Hard Problem // Automatic' single for MethLab Recordings consolidated his place in the crew for his more unusual audio explorations. With new material in the works for multiple labels, Disprove's understated trajectory continues to develop in unusual but exceptional ways.
His thick and solid, yet complex minimalistic sound defines his style; with a microscopic focus in making each moment of his music pleasurable without relying on bewildering the listener with a barrage of components. Carefully balanced tracks that have undeniably heavy cores, regardless of the tempo; with finely distorted kick drums, clean and crispy mixdowns and super funky rhythms over layers of compressed sounds.
