Chillout with the misleadingly named Nightmares On Wax, whose days on Warp continue with a lovely reisuse of 'Thought So...', his sixth record, which saw them pack up shop and move to Ibiza (from Leeds, no less!). There's plenty of good old fashioned dub to rejoice over, but things get a little sunnier and shinier on this record.

"Thought So" is a blissful, unhurried coast of clacking hip-hop breaks, sparse guitar and shimmering synthesiser grounded in Evelyn's main musical passions. While there is a distant echo of Nightmares On Wax's early bleep beginnings in Be There, you leave feeling that Evelyn is more than satisfied with his current pace of life: slow, steady, stoned. That popular acclaim will surely continue to elude Nightmares On Wax, then, but in a genre of cynical, blanded-out mood muzak, Thought So still feels like a treat.
