wrecklessly addicted

Review by Brent Crampton ~ Nasty . . . Scary . . . Wet-my-bed kind of Scary. The first release for Wreckless recordings is all of that and more. Wreckless is based out of Omaha, Nebraska and is the brain child of Lunatik, aka Aaron Godbout and will focus on hard-hitting tracks with a dark appeal. Making its debut at the WMC, this record company is bound to put Omaha on the map for dance music!

The first release, “Addicted” has the original by Trinity Sound System a “Lunatik Rework”. Trinity Sound System is producer James Passolt and vocalist Chad Carper. The track is a 4-to-the-floor stomper with a heavy and chunky high end and one hell of a nasty bass line. Throughout the track is the sampled line, “I don’t care - I am addicted” and Passolt puts a nice touch on it when he begins to chop up the vocal and tease the dance floor with it. The track is pretty original considering it uses a four-to-the-floor method with a DnB bass line. Overall, it is very dark and sure to appeal to the underground masses.

Lunatik’s remix sounds as if someone stepped inside the Twilight Zone with its eery piano. Shortly into the song, there’s a break down that cleverly transforms and brings anticipation to the crowd. Not to down play the original mix, the remix uses another hard and gritty baseline with a DnB rhythm. The growling bass line and reverbed vocal are the prominent features of the track.

If the first release is any indication of what’s to come from this label - you better buy some new panties because these tracks will make you wet your bed! They are definitely not for the faint-hearted and truly meant for the dark underground demographic. Nasty bass lines and hard dance music now has a new home in Omaha. I look forward to seeing where this label will go.
