Cdatakill


Real Name: Zak Roberts

Profile: Zak Roberts has been recording and producing extreme electronic music since the mid-1990s. Under monikers such as AK-47 and DJ Rabies, Roberts produced a driving and abrasive hi-fi speedcore sound, pushing the envelope for DIY hardcore producers. Searching for a way to promote and support underground hardcore music, Roberts co-founded the now infamous trashcore label Dtrash Records with fellow digital hardcore comrades CPUWar. After growing tired of his previous sound, Roberts felt the need to evolve and push his work into more complex directions. Feeling the need to start over, Roberts cut working ties with the Dtrash collective (although he still wishes them well and hopes for their success) and changed the name under which he records to Cdatakill. The goal of the Cdatakill project is to pin opposites together, to bring sounds that normally oppose and conflict with each other into a seamless aural nightmare and daydream, to expose and glorify the beautiful alongside the violent.
