Mental Wreckage

Mental Wreckage

Real Name:
Lody Koehorst
Mental Wreckage was one of the main producers and founders of Symp.tom, a recordlabel mainly focused towards Industrial hardcore techno and experimental projects, and is a subdivision of Mid-Town Records. Together with his colleague "Mute." he also ran the label. Besides his main releases for Symp.tom he also did some succesful remixes for artists like Neophyte, Meccano Twins, The Relic and Sarin Assault, the latter still being unreleased.

His main style can be described as an alternative and sometimes experimental form of hardcore techno, maintained by an appetite for deep kicks and a pounding drive.

Throughout the years, Mental Wreckage has worked on several collaborations with artists like Moleculez, The Relic, more recently Syndemic, and a collab with Sei2ure is currently in the making. Additionally, he also works under the name Dual Mechanism, which is a collaboration project with his 'partner in crime' The Relic. With this project these two gentlemen allow themselves more freedom for experimenting with their sound and using a wider variety of influences.

In august 2011, Lody announced he would be phasing out his 'Mental Wreckage' moniker and adopt a new one; Warchetype.
