Nightmares on Wax
It is no exaggeration to say that Nightmares on Wax’s work is synonymous with a place in time. It is a place individual to those who have savoured his popular brand on sun-drenched dubbed out soul, where fragments of hazy memories, halcyon days and past snapshots encapsulate a generation’s sofa sojourning. For George Evelyn, the man behind Nightmares on Wax, did indeed create some defining moments in the 90’s.
Nightmares on Wax has had sublime languid success. From his involvement in writing two of the U.K’s early rave classics: Dexterous and Aftermath, to his solo track “Smokers Delight”, considered to be one of the main catalysts in the explosion of the chill out/down tempo genre today. “Carboot Soul” was delivered soon after and his albums have sold over 150,000 copies and continue to, ten years and six years respectively after release.
