Nightmares on Wax

When: Sun., July 6, 9 p.m. 2014

The Nightmares on Wax story is one that spans decades and genres. For 25 years now, George Evelyn, a former B-boy turned DJ and producer, has toured and recorded under the moniker Nightmares on Wax. The guy swas producing trip-hop beats before it was cool to produce trip-hop beats. To celebrate the quarter century mark, he’s just issued N.O.W. Is The Time, a 2-disc best of release featuring the greatest hits. He’s also put out the special edition box set Deep Down: Remixes & Rarities which features unreleased material, new and classic remixes, and a book of memorabilia and interviews. "It’s been emotional; it’s been enlightening," says Evelyn. "In most of your career, you usually just go forward and think about what you’re doing to do next. Now, I realize you don’t spend a lot of time looking back. When you do it, you realize that the music reflects where you’re at as a person at different times of your life. You have things going on in your life, like being a father or experiencing success outside. It all affects your music. It’s an interesting process. You realize after that you do feel something because of what they feel and say. It might be the emotional part is clouded because you’re not in touch with that anymore. But you can hear the music for what it is." Evelyn is a big fan of the Grog Shop, where he performed last year, so expect tonight's show to be exceptional. (Niesel)
