N.O.W IS THE TIME
The Nightmares on Wax story is one that spans decades and genres. George Evelyn (also known as DJ E.A.S.E) came up in the 80s UK B-Boy and graffiti scene, enamoured with New York hip-hop. He was an innovator in merging those sounds and feelings with the popular sounds of the UK at that time to pioneer what became dubbed “trip-hop.” Releasing classic albums such as Smokers Delight and Carboot Soul and working with the likes of De La Soul and Roots Manuva established NOW as one of the definitive purveyors of hip-hop, funk, dub and soul. 25 years on, his fanbase is still growing. N.O.W IS THE TIME is a compilation that celebrates Evelyn’s career-to-date.
