8/10 Ian Staff review, 13 September 2013
Warp Records veteran Nightmares On Wax is back after a five year hiatus, we’re very proud of our homegrown talent here in Leeds so with George Evelyn now clocking in over 20 years in the biz it’s safe to say I’m about to say lots of nice words about our George, although don’t think I’m saying all this just because he’s a Yorkshire lad, ‘Feelin Good’ is a very good album indeed, a real hark back to that laid back Bristol trip-hop sound of the late 90’s.
There’s not much in the way of change or experimentation here, just super smooth jams for that late night chill session, ‘Luna 2’ is a jazz/dub hybrid with some lovely Rhodes keyboard drifting through it, there’s a bit of disco in here with ‘Now Is The Time’ (which is getting some airplay on Nemone and Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music shows) and some smokey soul on ‘There 4u’, the dub theme runs deep throughout though and never really moves away from that classic NOW sound, with a full UK tour to support the album and a homecoming show at Leeds Belgrave Music Hall ‘Feelin Good’ is sure to sound great in a live setting so get this on your turntables!
