Having spent the last 10 years traveling the world in search of perfect surf, big mountains and heavy sound systems, Wreckage (aka Andy Horse) has taken his sound and passion for music to all corners of the globe.
Growing up listening to mainly hip hop and punk his musical horizons broadened in 2005 when he started to get into Drum & Bass and Dubstep. Whilst pursuing a career as a professional snowboarder a heavy crash in the Whistler Black Park put him out of action for 3 months so instead of wasting this time he brought some decks and learnt to mix. What started as a hobby to pass the time recovering has lead to a lifestyle and career in the music industry.
In 2008 he played his first set at ‘Subculture’ in Queenstown NZ. A bar that was known for its unique difference from most bars, their love of bass heavy music with gigs from New Zealand’s bass scene including Shapeshifter, Optimus Gryme, Tiki Taane & The Upbeats. From there the bug to play for the crowds grew, he enjoyed the buzz of live gigs and meeting like minded, passionate people that would give him the confidence to keep taking it up a notch.
Over the years he scored a “job” as a resident DJ at ‘Rockstar Palace’ in Mayrhofen, Austria. During this time he started to get into the production side of it starting out on FL studio but later changing to Ableton Live. Recording some of his own samples to keep his sound unique and constantly learning new ways to compose tracks. His travels soon led him to the infamous ‘Cafe Chaud’ known for its rowdy Sunday nights in Morzine (France) where he would play Drum and Bass and Dubstep sets alongside the likes of Eveson and Bowers.
Exposure soon came gaining radio play on George FM with New Zealand’s Bass Music Godfather, Jason Howson. He teamed up with labels Subversion, 4ort Night and Deepnezz Audio increasing his following and getting his name out there. During his 18 months in France he locked down a weekly radio show playing a wide variety of music from reggae to bass music. He also featured multiple times on UK radio station Bassport FM.
He was then signed to Squinty Bass Records in 2013 with his debut EP ‘Deep South’ and followed that with a second EP ‘Phyiscal Realms’ released in August 2014 with a release party that would go down in history amongst the local crew at Marisco Club in North Devon, UK.
Now currently working on a full length album in Auckland, New Zealand, due for release on Iron Shirt Records later this year. Expect big things to come from Wreckage as he stays true to his deep dubstep roots.
