Celebrate 25 years of Smokers Delight with Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy and special guest George Evelyn of Nightmares on Wax. They will discuss his musical roots and the evolution of Nightmares on Wax alongside playing some of the samples Evelyn excavated from some of his most cherished LPs.
Nightmares on Wax’ sophomore LP was a defining moment of ’90s trip hop and downtempo sound along with other heavy-hitters including Massive Attack’s Blue Lines, Portishead’s Dummy and Tricky’s Maxinquaye. The LP fused together a cornucopia of sound: “It was all the things that turned me on: reggae, soul, and through sampling and digging, hip hop was the backbone,” Evelyn said of the samples on Smokers Delight in Joe Muggs’ book Bass, Mids, Tops.
