Nightmares On Wax, Nick Nice

  • Majestic 115 King Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

While it's been about four years since Leeds, England's Nightmares On Wax (real name George Evelyn) dropped his most recent full-length, Feelin' Good, the woozy trip-hop producer and DJ will visit here to break off a cloudy set of deep soul and hip-hop cuts. Since stoney 1991 classic A Word Of Science: The First And Final Chapter, Evelyn's production has gradually shifted away from incorporating ornate and sample-heavy dance cuts, instead zooming in on smooth, funky trip-hop—but keeping it slow, hazy, and choppy. As a DJ, Evelyn's performances arc from deep soul tunes into faster and funkier dance climes. And while Evelyn tends to eschew the tackier, more time-stamped side of dance music, his razor focus on international funk, soul, and disco makes him an enduring force in his lane. —Joel Shanahan
