No mid 90â€™s DJ set was complete without a track from Smokerâ€™s Delight, The seminal Trippy Hop offering from DJ/producer George Evelyn AKA Nightmares On Wax.
And now heâ€™s back with his sixth album â€˜â€¦Thought Soâ€™ released Monday on Warp Records (UK).
With more than an ample dose of laptop wizardry on show, the album features a plethera of warm blissed out grooves, rootsy reggae and gentle, deep fried funk. Not entirely a progression from previous outings, but none the less this new collection of tracks passes the â€˜multiple listensâ€™ test with ease. With something this chilled, we could perhaps have done with it earlier in the summer, but then again it could be arguedâ€¦What summer?
You can check out the sublime Les Nuits from 1999 on the video above and listen to selected tracks from â€˜â€¦Thought Soâ€™ at the Nightmares On Wax MySpace page
