Plus support from What's Wrong With Groovin' + The Slow Revolt
Nightmares on Wax is an institution, albeit a delightfully different one. The man behind the moniker, George Evelyn, just keeps reinventing - not in a wilful Bowie way, but flowing along, going at whatever speed he fancies to wherever his ideas carry him. For the last seven years he's lived in an Ibizan farmhouse and, while he's Warp Records' longest serving artist - "the granddaddy," as he puts it - he overwhelmingly focuses on his current projects, letting them revitalize his music. In 2014, to celebrate 25 years of music with Warp Records, he will release 'N.O.W Is The Time', an album including originals, unreleased material and remixes that span his entire career on 2 CD format as well as special edition vinyl boxset.
With tours coming this Autumn, Europe and the US will be able to see these ideas come to fruition. In the meantime, there are the ten tracks of 'Feelin' Good', the same number as 'Carboot Soul' - a good omen according to George, a man positively overflowing with good omens.
Setting his sights high, as ever, with a cheery and unpretentious sincerity, George Evelyn continues to carry the original flame of acid house and late '80s Balearica, pushing it alive'n'kicking into 2013. His new album will surprise many, as bubbly, warm and lively a thing as will be heard all year. Nightmares on Wax are back. Then again, like the underground itself, they never really went away.
