Nightmares on Wax, murk daddy flex

George Evelyn is a straight-up legend in his field. With its 1991 Warp debut, A Word of Science, Nightmares on Wax combined techno, soul and acid house to create a decidedly unique and vastly danceable crossover sound that would be aped by lesser producers for years to come. (It’s no stretch to say the project is partially responsible for the soulless EDM stew that fills today’s nightclubs.) Evelyn continues to ply his trade and prove his mettle with countless mixes, remixes and studio full-lengths, like last year’s deep and orchestral Feelin’ Good. Earlier this year, Warp released N.O.W. Is the Time, a career-spanning best-of compilation that showcased Evelyn’s talent and influence. Get there early Saturday to catch local beatsmith murk daddy flex, a logical heir to NoW in both sound and spirit.
