Nightmares On Wax – ‘N.O.W IS THE TIME’

20140311-_MG_0014c-1
Nightmares on Wax has shared a retrospective documentary directed by Rollo Jackson, giving insight into Nightmares on Wax’s long-standing career and 25 years of music history in anticipation of the ‘N.O.W IS THE TIME’ compilation out next month.

The Nightmares on Wax story is one that spans decades and genres. Evelyn (also known as DJ E.A.S.E) came up in the 80s UK B-Boy and graffiti scene enamored with New York hip-hop and was an innovator in merging those sounds and feelings with the popular sounds of the UK at that time to pioneer what became dubbed “trip-hop.” Releasing classic albums such as Smokers Delight and Carboot Soul and working with the likes of De La Soul and Roots Manuva established NOW as one of the definitive purveyors of hip-hop, funk, dub and soul. 25 years on, his fanbase is still growing.

“The real heartwarming sort of thing about doing this project, and celebrating this project, is that everybody I asked to do a remix was honoured to do it. This is what this has been about is really, really getting back to why you even make music, what is this relationship to music. Because it is fun and I love it. Full Stop.” – George Evelyn (Nightmares on Wax)
