George ‘E.A.S.E’ Evelyn, AKA Nightmares On Wax, has released a range of records over 25 years that have been integral to cultural movements and electronic music. This album comprises of the best of tracks from Nightmares On Wax ‘By Day’ and ‘By Night’ over the past 25 years, plus rarities and remixes.

George spent his youth b-boying his way around the streets of Leeds and Bradford as part of teenage breakdance crew the Solar City Rockers. After cutting some embryonic rave tracks with musical co-conspirator Kevin ‘Boy Wonder’ Harper, the duo signed to Warp and released debut ‘A Word Of Science’, becoming instrumental in the bleep explosion with tracks such as ‘Dextrous’ and ‘Aftermath’, which attained mythical status for a generation of clubbers.

George continued as a solo artist, still under the Nightmares On Wax moniker, going on to produce definitive albums ‘Smokers Delight’ and ‘Carboot Soul’ – both of which helped shape the burgeoning downtempo hip hop scene. Numerous tracks such as ‘Les Nuits’ became widely regarded as chillout classics.

Later albums such as ‘In A Space Outta Sound’ continue to be staple afterparty favourites, with the track ‘You Wish’ in particular featuring on numerous compilations, mixtapes and club sets. The most recent album, ‘Feelin Good’, weaves a musical thread through a plethora of styles that N.O.W have explored of the years, including hip hop, jazz, soul and funk.
