Nightmares on Wax (DJ set)
On Saturday June 18th, HUSHconcerts and Blasthaus present NIGHTMARES ON WAX DJ set. It is no exaggeration to say that Nightmares on Wax’s work is synonymous with a place in time. It is a savoured brand of sun-drenched dubbed out soul, blended where fragments of hazy memories & sofa sojourning. For George Eveyln, the man behind Nightmares on Wax, it solidified a reputation as the patriarch of this very popular genre associated with chill out / ambient / down tempo. However, the Nightmares success story doesn’t end there. Once again, Nightmare’s trademark stamp is evident; rhythms infectious in their simplicity, blues-infused time signatures overlaid by Quincy Jones-esque synth lines and the inherent fusion of relaxed dub, hallucinogenic hip hop and Balearic melodies.
