Wreckless & Sweetpea combine on ‘Rice and Avocado’
Wreckless is a Drum and Bass artist from the UK. His first release was signed by Peer Pressure in 2011. Following this Wreckless has released music with Dispatch Recordings, Flexout Audio, Addictive Behaviour and AutomAte. The initial interest in Drum’n’Bass was through borrowing tape packs and lurking at the back of local record shops, listening to pirate radio and finally when old enough, eventually raving at The End. This sparked a dedication to electronic music. As a DNB artist and DJ the sound could be described as off-beat, hard, inspired by 90s, but with some soul and groove. It is music for people who don’t really ‘fit in’.
Now Wreckless returns to Dispatch with a brand new 5 track EP called ‘Lloyd’s Building At Night’.
‘Nightmare Fuel’ was written one morning after vivid nightmares, trying to capture the chaos and intensity of dreams.
Inspired by the architecture of the ‘Lloyd’s Building at Night’ lit up beautifully this track echoes the design of that famous building.
Our premiere ‘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.
‘Shadow Cabinet’ is another comment on Politics, a musical reminder that creative rebellion is a valid option to inspire change. The tune is bleak and dystopian in reference to the George Orwell novel.
‘Plex Lenses’ was inspired by the NI instrument Polyplex. This was used to create all of the drums in the track, some of the auxiliary synths are from morphed Polyplex samples.
