‘Nightmare Fuel’ was written one morning after vivid nightmares, trying to capture the chaos and intensity of dreams.
Just like recurring dreams certain elements repeat throughout the track. The delays and oddly processed percussion were made to give an ethereal atmosphere. Recognisably DnB but distorted from the norm, just like in nightmares.
Inspired by the architecture of the ‘Lloyd’s Building at Night’ lit up beautifully this track echoes the design of that famous building. The pipework, staircases and lifts are all put on the outside of the building so that the inside of the building can be free and open. There is a beauty in proudly displaying features that are not ‘perfect’. This is carried into the track with structural elements proudly displayed and intentionally out of place.
‘Rice and Avocado’ is a collaboration with Sweetpea, jokingly named after the only meal Wreckless could offer whilst working on the tune together, having been pre-occupied finding samples and ideas instead of preparing to be a host!
The name stuck and what a track it is, packed with the call and response of contrasting musical elements, tailored to balance each other – a regular feature of their combinations.
