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 Smoker’s Delight in Joe Muggs’ book Bass, Mids, Tops.
