The Avalanches were teenagers learning how to sample when Tricky bought out Maxinquaye
in 1995. The pair had that record on repeat and have remained fans ever since. They started chatting on Instagram when Tricky was in Berlin making his Fall To Pieces
"We did like six songs in two weeks and two of them have made this record," Chater recalled to NME
. "It was a beautiful alignment where he just happened to be on fire."
