Editors’ Notes

Nightmares On Wax's early bleep-techno releases helped set the futuristic tone of the U.K.'s Warp label. But with 1999's Carboot Soul, he eased into the coziest kind of nostalgia. Named in homage to secondhand-record dealers, his third album is a crate-digger's delight, full of head-nodding breakbeats, muted horns, drowsy Rhodes riffs, and moody funk basslines. Strings and acoustic guitars carry echoes of British folk music, while Sarah Winton's hazy vocals lend whispered intimacy to the softly lit proceedings.

A Classic Soul/Instrumental Hip Hop Album

My favorite Nightmares on Wax album, it's just a classic. "Morse", "Ease Jimi", "Fire In The Middle", and "Capumcap" are a few favorites, but I'd recommend this whole album as a great starting place if you're just getting into soullful instrumental hip hop. The thing is, over the years Carboot Soul has remained a staple of my music collection, and given that it was released over 10 years ago, it still sounds as fresh and inspiring as when I heard "Morse" for the first time years ago. The samples are inventive and create a vibe I haven't been able to find anywhere else really, from swelling strings to almost unintelligible female vocals, to R&B rhythm sections and contemplative guitar/synth parts. Highly recommended to anyone even remotely interested in hip hop, jazz, soul, or electronic music...George Evelyn makes solid tunes that will stay with you for a while. He blends everything together well without sounding overly self-conscious, playing to certain trends, or sounding dated - it's an easy, lasting classic in my book.

Love NoW

I love these guys! DJ EASE has the right idea with this band combining smooth electronic music with soul searching vocals that gives me a spirtual experience everytime I listen. Which is a lot and it never gets old everytime they come up on my shuffle I listen with delight no matter which song it is. Morse is the song that turned me on to them. It still reminds me of when I heard it driving through the sugarcane fields of Kauai on my way to an amazing surf session.

Originally the combined project of George Evelyn and Kevin "Boywonder" Harper — the latter of whom was eventually replaced by Robin Taylor-Firth — Nightmares on Wax became one of the brightest spots on the post-rave British techno map of the early '90s. NoW's debut album, A Word of Science, was — along with early tracks by LFO, Tuff Little Unit, and Tricky Disco — a crucial bridge between the competing influences of New York house and electro, Detroit techno and soul, London...
