With Nite School Klik, DJ Shadow and G Jones are attempting to push the boundaries of the music they are drawn to, and tracks like the epic, cinematic second single "Nice Nightmares" showcase their desire to reshape perceptions with the duo."Nice Nightmares" is a bass masterpiece, whose ear-catching sonic landscape is packed with innovative sound design and perplexing instrumentals. Buzzy heatseeker Eprom also joins the project with an official remix of "Nice Nightmares." Complex describes his work on re-envisioning the single as "tackling, dreamy synths, turning up the fuzz, and creating an even more intense track."
Embarking on a new alias project is an unforeseen move for Shadow, as the last time he took on a secret project was as The Groove Robbers in the early 90s. The reason behind selecting a mysterious pseudonym for the project was both artists' desire to experiment with new sonic elements and not feel the pressure of appealing to the connotations of their already established sound.
