The Nightmares' return pressed onto a Double LP in a gatefold jacket and printed inner sleeves. Includes download.
Iconic Warp Records mainstay (and Leeds lad) Nightmares on Wax makes a long-anticipated return with his new album 'Shape The Future'. The marriage of soul, hip-hop, dub and timeless club sounds that N.O.W. has been mutating and perfecting for years finds perhaps its most fluid form yet on Shape The Future.
Energised by globetrotting runs of studio sessions and DJ sets, this latest salvo is a masterpiece of contemporary and classic genre-blending that solidifies Nightmares On Wax’s place as an inspirational electronic music figurehead. This includes the shamanistic vocals of recent single Back To Nature, and in particular the the arresting voices of Mozez alongside Kanye West and Flume collaborator Allan Kingdom, as featured on the leading cut 'Citizen Kane'.
George 'Nightmares on Wax' Evelyn says: “Making 'Shape The Future' I’ve journeyed both inwardly and outwardly all over the word and both physically and emotionally. I feel like I had to mature making this record, as it posed a lot of challenges along the way - more than I anticipated. You’re a different person each day so I could never make the same album again- expressions change. I’ve bought in a lot of outside people including musicians and an orchestra. It’s bought a lot of enrichment. Each album to me is discovery and a reflection, a mirror where i'm at in life over a period of time through writing an album and touring. It's inspiring my reality or affecting my outlook on things and in turn is expressed through the music and expressing a message through different sides of emotion and our relationship to our reality”
Nightmares on Wax is one of the most influential artists of a generation, his music has inspired many musicians and producers across the globe over his quarter decade career. As Warp’s longest serving active artist, he has broadened the sound of the label and paved the way for artists such as Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Mount Kimbie.
