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
