To celebrate the release of the N.O.W IS THE TIME compilation from Nightmares on Wax in celebration of his 25-year career, we have got a new retrospective documentary for you to watch. Directed by Rollo Jackson it gives insight into NOW’s long-standing career and 25 years of music history.
The Nightmares on Wax story spans decades and genres. 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 and was an innovator in merging those beats 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 fan base is still growing.
