The LGBTQ Artists Who Inspire Wreckno, EDM’s Glitter-Dipped Disruptor-in-Chief

In today's world, where authenticity often takes a backseat to mirror-maze social media manipulation, Wreckno's unapologetic embrace of their identity has helped carve out a space for LGBTQ artists to thrive.

An outspoken advocate of LGBTQ rights, the Class of 2022 star is going scorched earth—like they do every Pride Month—after releasing a new single, "Party Girl."

Wreckno's braggadocious bars flow like honey down a spoon, providing the rhythmic intravenous drip for this slice of dancefloor euphoria. A Pride anthem through and through, the audacious hip-house banger will appear on a new EP this summer by way of the venerable Helix Records.


The triple-threat DJ, producer and rapper is now gearing up to debut their very own Pride event, "Wreckno's Big Gay Soirée," in Denver. Scheduled for June 20th, the summer bash will feature performances by Wreckno, Kaleena Zanders, So Sus, Ava Sparks and a special guest as well as drag performances from Aja and LaLa Ri of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Tickets are on sale now. But before then, read on to discover the songs and artists that continue to inspire Wreckno, in their own words.

Brooke Candy — "Das Me"

Brooke Candy was the first artist I discovered that was reclaiming homophobic slurs and making them badass to identify with. This song awakened something in me as a teenager that told me, “You can be a badass out loud and proud queer person without shame!”
