Premiere: Wreckless – Disco Dub

Wreckless lands on Addictive Behaviour with a wicked new EP this month so naturally we had to grab an exclusive…the man himself has a few words for us on the track which provide some insight into its creation to boot. Check that out below and watch out for the release dropping Aug 5th at Beatport.

‘Disco Dub’ is a homage to old pirate radio and the synths in house music. A friend of mine from uni used to make the most awesome house music in the room above mine, it was honestly incredible. This track is just trying to get those house music sounds from a decade previous into a D&B arrangement. The whole tune sounds really old, the breaks all rattle, and the resonances are harsh, most of the synths are recorded as live jams and this gives it the loose, older style feeling for me. Long live MIDI.
