Nightmares On Wax – Carboot Soul (WARP CD 61) (1999)


(Leeds, England) – Desperate for his band not to be pigeonholed, DJ George Evelyn of the top Trip-Hop band Nightmares on Wax, has pleaded for critics not to categorise the group in the “Trip-Hop” genre.

“Trip-Hop is all about coffee-table, downtempo electronica utilising samples and breakbeats and influenced by dub and soul we’re more mellow, narcotised ambient DJ music featuring tape loops and beats with elements of remix culture and R&B,” he helpfully explained.

According to Trip-Hop pioneer Evelyn, “Portishead, Massive Attack and DJ Shadow are way more Trip-Hop than us and, anyway, we aren’t even Trip-Hop.”

“But at the end of the day, I don’t really like labelling things,” the Trip-Hop artist added.
