“Reckless” is the first single from Feed Me’s forthcoming self-titled album.
Arriving by way of Feed Me’s Sotto Voce imprint, “Reckless” is a beautifully cinematic tune, embracing a downtempo feel. Baxter’s airy vocals float effortlessly atop the meticulously textured soundscapes of Feed Me, who has long been revered for his trailblazing approach to sound design. The synthwave-inspired song is ideal for late-night drives, capturing a melancholy yet gritty feel.

“Reckless is a lockdown story reimagined as escapist fantasy, and a chapter in a diary of recalibration,” Feed Me said in a Facebook post. “Next week’s album is a segment of a larger body of work totalling [sic] how I made use of the time you’ve all given me. I hope as it unfolds, you think I used it well.”
Feed Me’s forthcoming album will be a self-titled affair and is due out next week on August 13th. The record comes after a relatively quiet year for the venerated British producer, who has avoided releasing singles up until this point. He went head-to-head with Flux Pavilion in a beat battle back in January before releasing his debut NFT the following month.
