Welcome to Seattle, Washington. The illustrious Northwest city is the home of the Seahawks, Mariners, Pikes Place, and a whole lot of hipsters. It is also the current hometown of the bass bumping dubstep group Ohm Wrecker.
The duo (formerly known as Dubble Penetration) consisting of producers Penny Wide Pupils (Will Costello) and Humpfree LowGart (Jon Curran) have come a long way since they met and soon after attended Burning Man together. The two have put together a powerful sound that possesses bubbly instrumentations and ample servings of banging dub lines that will have any listener hooked from the first drop. They have busted onto their respective scene in a big way recently by dropping a sensational, grimy remix of the classic Sugarpill song “Trouble Blind,” along with tenacious original cuts that will be get a crowd moving like “Drop It” and “So High.”
On the Float EP released on Tycho Records, the duo takes their thunderous soundscapes to a whole new level.
The EP opens up with the title track, which is an all out beast of a tune that features chopped up, hip-hop style vocals and an uplifting groove that riddles its way between a series of confident and immersive synth lines. This momentous and in your face track will have you pressing replay over and over again, and is a huge step for Ohm Wrecker.
“Bass Thunder” is a limitless cut that will instantly open up the sky and unleash the onslaught of the elements upon the world with its endless supply of ominous dub lines and mystical guitar rhythms
“Headful of Space” is a dubbed out, mid tempo cut that will instantly entrance the listener and send them on a musical journey through a series of powerful crescendos and contagious drum hits.
Ohm Wrecker goes all out on their debut release, and proves very quickly that they deserve to be heard.
