“Nightmares On Wax emerged as one of the leading acts of the bleep and bass era, but for more than 20 years they've helped ease listeners onto beanbags as well as dance floors. That change began with 1995's Smokers Delight, which dropped the warfare sub-bass and synth chirps of tracks like "Aftermath" for a low-slung trip-hop gait. Nowadays comprised of cofounder George Evelyn and a rotating cast of collaborators, Nightmares On Wax has developed that sound ever since, slowly building a discography that draws from, jazz, dub, soul and reggae with an increasingly opulent feel. Shape The Future, built around a hazy amalgam of strings, horns, guitars and vocalists, with a greater focus on songcraft, is that sound's latest iteration.”– Resident Advisor

“George Evelyn, better known by his stage name Nightmares on Wax or DJ E.A.S.E., is a DJ and electronic music composer from Leeds, England. His music is released on Warp Records and was one of the first releases on the label.

Evelyn got his start in the music industry through an interest in hip hop and on joining a local breakdancing crew. He started as a DJ with John Halnon then Kevin Harper and together they released their first album in 1991, A Word of Science: The First and Final Chapter. Halnon is an established engineer/producer, Harper has since become a solo DJ, and Evelyn partnered with Robin Taylor-Firth.” – Wiki
