Nightmares

 Nightmares on Wax came up in the ‘80s UK B-Boy and graffiti scene enamored with New York Hip Hop and was an innovator in merging those sounds and feelings with the popular sounds of the UK at that time to pioneer the mashup of hip-hop, funk, dub and soul – what became dubbed ‘trip-hop’. He released classic albums such as Smokers Delight and Carboot Soul and worked with the likes of De La Soul and Roots Manuva. His recent Boiler Room DJ Set has over half a million views and after his successful US tour following the release of his most recent record Feelin’ Good he is about to embark on his largest US tour to date.
