The album became a defining statement of intent in the development of the Nightmares On Wax sound. Moving away from the bleeps and breaks of his first album 'A Word of Science: The First and Final Chapter' - created with Kevin 'BoyWonder' Harper - 'Smokers Delight' is Nightmares solo and presents a post-club comedown journey which experiments with elements of jazz, dub, soul and hip-hop.
While the album's trio-hop credentials garnered much raving in the music press, the album passed under the radar in terms of mass commercial success, but you know that's not what defines a good album, right?
'Smoker's Delight' is an instrumental hip-hop album with a distinctively British eclecticism. Still involved with the same sorts of genre-spanning sampler-and-sequencer experiments, 'Smoker's Delight' makes no predictable moves whatsoever and is suited to repeat listenings, to delve into the assembled sounds. Sounds that - at the time - no-one had heard all on one record before.
