Nightmares On Wax

Originally the combined project of George Evelyn and Kevin "Boywonder" Harper -- the latter of whom was eventually replaced by Robin Taylor-Firth -- Nightmares on Wax became one of the brightest spots on the post-rave British techno map of the early '90s. NoW's debut album, A Word of Science, was -- along with early tracks by LFO, Tuff Little Unit, and Tricky Disco -- a crucial bridge between the competing influences of New York house and electro, Detroit techno and soul, London rave and acid, and the burgeoning eclecticism of the years to come. Formed in the late '80s in West Yorkshire as an extension of Evelyn and company's b-boy crew the Soul City Rockers, NoW's first singles, "Dextrous" and "Aftermath," were both highly regarded, and the latter shot into the U.K. pop singles Top 40. The subsequent album laid a good deal of the groundwork for the downtempo experimental hip-hop/electro-funk worked over by Mike Paradinas, Luke Vibert, Spacer, and others, and earned the group a secure spot among techno's select crew of next-step innovators.

The group nonetheless disbanded following Science's release, with early contributor Kevin Harper leaving to pursue a DJ career and Evelyn turning out a smattering of house tracks on Warp's Nucleus subsidiary before settling into bedroom woodshed mode. Following a four-year hiatus, Evelyn resurfaced with a track on the Mo' Wax Headz compilation and, soon after, Smoker's Delight, basically an instrumental hip-hop album with a distinctively British eclecticism. Still involved with the same sorts of genre-spanning sampler-and-sequencer experiments, Smoker's Delight was also less obvious, suited more to repeat listenings than previous material. The same was also true for 1999's Carboot Soul, Evelyn's first album as part of a deal with American indie label Matador for domestic distribution. In 2000, NoW produced the first new track by De La Soul in several years, included on an EP -- Sound of N.O.W -- featuring the rap pioneers. Following on its heels was a volume in the Studio !K7 mix series DJ-Kicks. Two years later, Evelyn delivered his fourth LP, Mind Elevation. A bigger gap preceded the release of his next proper LP for Warp, but In a Space Outta Sound finally appeared in March 2006, while 2008's Thought So... -- the final NoW Warp release -- and 2009's Coming Home followed closely behind. Evelyn continued to work as a downtempo DJ, re-signed with Warp, collaborated with Jazzanova arranger Sebastian Studnitzky, and released Feelin' Good, another eclectic set of productions, in 2013. The following year brought a retrospective set, N.O.W. Is the Time, to celebrate 25 years of activity. Morgan Geist, Optimo's JD Twitch, and Ashley Beedle, among others, granted remixes. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

Amazing feeling listening to this
Mmmmm
What a brilliant DJ and producer - songs like "You Wish" and other of my all time favourites are by Nightmares On Wax.

An extremely talented producer with an ear for odd, but defiantly interesting, lo-fi music.
Chill a** rhythm
Sounds like Private Number got stuck.

Great show at Crescent 6/24/14 in PHX. Come back anytime! :)
Nice take on a reggae classic - Sugar Minott's Good Thing Going
This song is the real deal. Good cruising jam.
Giraffes - Tall Blondes
Chill, but they do have the same sound as others. As a producer myself, it is essential to find your own unique sound so people hear and are like oh, that must be... HotectaR
It's alright.. Sounds familiar bc this and pretty lights (finally movin) are built on sample of the (thoroughly) 60s song private number. Not pharcyde.. just old timey elevator music

Awesome, NoW at it's best
I don't understand how you think you changed this song enough to list it as your bands, this project involved many Influential artists for their time a and genre that so many people look up to, it's just sad that this is the type of stunt they pull. No respect was earned or given.
I concur, WAXING Brilliant as ever.
F**king brilliant!
