The composition of 23am began from the Dreamland tour, during which Miles collected audio samples from virtually every city visited. They seem to have been less an afterthought for this album, though, and were written in Italian and then translated into English.
Two tracks on the album, including its first single Textures - Robert Miles - 23am , feature vocals by disco Exorcised - OFF! - Wasted Years Kathy Sledge of the chart-topping group Sister Sledge. The structures and instrumental arrangements on 23am are more complex than those on the earlier DreamlandTextures - Robert Miles - 23am real instruments such as the saxophone and trumpet as an addition to the synthesizers.
The music is also much less beat -driven; the main sections of a number of the vocal-based songs are structured like pop songswhile the segueing Witchy Woman - Eagles - Illegal Eagles between songs are generally structureless, with no beats at all.
Ultimately it can be said that 23am is more artistic and less dance -oriented than its predecessor, Dreamland. At the same time, however, 23am was less successful than Dreamland.
