George Evelyn a.k.a Nightmares On Wax visits 53 Degrees North for our Boxing Day special on the 26th December 2014.
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 of 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. Firstly there was his involvement in writing two of the U.K.’s early rave classics Dexterous and Aftermath (with then writing partner Kevin Harper from the Nightmares A Word of Science album). George then went alone and in ’95 bought us Smoker’s Delight, a downbeat opus and the archetype 90’s stoner album (not surprisingly, he was a one time high judge of the Cannibus Cup in Amsterdam). The effect of Smokers Delight was palpable as it is considered one of the main catalysts in the explosion of the chill out / down tempo genre today.
Constantly creating,forever evolving,collaborating, enjoying music & life.
