George ‘E.A.S.E’ Evelyn, AKA Nightmares On Wax, has released a range of records that have been integral to cultural movements and electronic music. He spent his youth b-boying his way around the streets of Leeds and Bradford as part of teenage breakdance crew the Solar City Rockers. After cutting some embryonic rave tracks with musical co-conspirator Kevin ‘Boy Wonder’ Harper, the duo signed to Warp and released debut album A Word Of Science, becoming instrumental in the bleep explosion; with tracks such as ‘Dextrous’ and ‘Aftermath’ attaining mythical status for a generation of clubbers. George continued as a solo artist, still under the Nightmares On Wax moniker, going on to produce definitive albums Smokers Delight and Carboot Soul – both of which helped shape the burgeoning down tempo hip-hop scene, and tracks such as ‘Les Nuits’ being widely regarded as chillout classics. Later albums such as In A Space Outta Sound continue to be staple afterparty favourites, with the track ‘You Wish’ in particular being featured in numerous DJ mixes, compilations, in club sets. The most recent Nightmares On Wax album, 2013’s ‘Feelin’ Good’, weaves a musical thread through a plethora of styles that N.O.W have explored over the years, including hip-hop, jazz, soul, and funk. Evelyn is now preparing to look back and celebrate their body of work to date with the N.O.W IS THE TIME release and tour.
