8/10 Ian Staff review, 13 June 2014
Here’s Leeds own George Evelyn with a long overdue best-of compilation from the 20 plus years strong Nightmares On Wax history.
This is sure to bring back memories of those post club chilled vibes from the nineties and beyond featuring tracks from his early classic albums like ‘Smokers Delight’ and ‘Carboot Soul’ as well as more recent material. The collection does exactly what you want it to with jazzy beats and pieces to bring you down after a hard nights clubbing or just generally chillin' out on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The obvious standout track has to be the stunning string laden ‘Les Nuits’ from 1999’s ‘Carboot Soul’ as featured in the film ‘Human Traffic’, this track really sums up that whole trip hop sound that dominated the bars and clubs of the late nineties.
Mixing jazz and soul with instrumental hip hop breaks was just perfect for the mood of the time, this may all sound a bit dated these days but It’s a part of music history that we can’t ignore, paving the way for modern artists like Burial and legends like Boards Of Canada that downtempo sound is still heard today. Cheers, George!
