Last year, growing dubstep DJ Throwdown, announced he would be making some changes to his project; rebranding to MadReckless. While he guaranteed to still bring the heavy dubs his fans had come to love, he also wanted to focus more on his hometown of Miami’s Latin and Hip Hop influences. Making his 2020 and MadReckless debut, he comes out swinging with a trappy bass banger with rising Ohio Rapper JXVE. “Teardrops,” is a departure from his recent dubstep releases, as he looks to return to his roots and love of hip-hop.
Fusing the ferocity of his Venezuelan homeland with the America’s love for bass music, MadReckless has taken the scene by storm. While growing up in Miami, the producer often draws on the city’s latin music and hip hop culture with heavy dubstep influence from legends Excision and 12th Planet. In 2018 alongside Riot Ten, he released their hit track “Act a Fool,” on Dim Mak Records, which has had over 1.8 million listens on Spotify. The following year he debuted on Disciple Round Table with his “Strapped Up,” EP. Last year was a huge success for MadReckless as he spread his music across the country from EDC Orlando to HARD SUMMER.
Hailing from Dayton, Ohio rising rapper JXVE, has had a passion for music and poetry from a young age. After curating his craft and making major waves in the rap scene, he joined the Only Noise Crew. His previous releases, “Bandaids,” and “Enemy,” have both reached over 100k plays without any label support due to his organic fanbase of over 70k listeners a month. “Tear Drops,” marks JXVE first taste of the EDM world, but given the tracks success it most certainly won’t be his last.
The artists also released a trippy music video for the track that captures the essence of Miami skylines, palm trees, and fast cars.
