Nightmares On Wax Smokers Delight (25th Anniversary) The 25th anniversary of a classic record from Nightmares On Wax, coloured vinyl packaged in a mirror-board sleeve, includes a download code that features an extra 4 bonus tracks. Smokers Delight was one of a handful of records to define a generation along with Massive Attack’s Blue Lines, Portishead’s Dummy and Tricky’s Maxinquaye. It took George Evelyn from his electronic-genre-blending debut 1991’s A Word of Science, into releasing the iconic downtempo, soul and hip hop material for which he has become renowned. Music lovers from around the world were intoxicated by this bassy, afterhours sound that became the backdrop to a million late-night living room sessions. Smokers Delight managed to capture that feeling and add a dash of light to the darkness, changing the musical landscape for Nightmares and the still young Warp label forever.

Nightmares on Wax main man, George Evelyn says “Back To Nature” is a reminder of our relationship to nature, something amazing that we are all a part of. In the modern world it’s become easy to forget that, to have the idea that nature is something that happens in the background to the human race. When in reality, we are an inherent part of it.” As the title alludes, this is George stripping away the layers to reveal the very essence of what makes him such an influential artist.

Nightmares On Wax Shape The Future Returning with his new album Shape The Future, Nightmare On Wax brings back his grand concoction of genres, creating his timeless sound of hip-hop, soul, electronic and dub. “Making Shape The Future I’ve journeyed both inwardly and outwardly all over the word and both physically and emotionally. I feel like I had to mature making this record, as it posed a lot of challenges along the way - more than I anticipated. You’re a different person each day so I could never make the same album again- expressions change. I’ve bought in a lot of outside people including musicians and an orchestra. It’s bought a lot of enrichment. Each album to me is discovery and a reflection, a mirror where i'm at in life over a period of time through writing an album and touring. It's inspiring my reality or affecting my outlook on things and in turn is expressed through the music and expressing a message through different sides of emotion and our relationship to our reality” Warp CD | LP
