NIGHTMARES ON WAX – You Wish

| On 06, Jan 2015

The internet has empowered many a communities since its user-base’s proliferation across the globe. Numerous bands, video games, films, books, media projects and more have found their footing all thanks to this global network…

Warp veteran, Nightmares On Wax, is no stranger to this phenomenon as the track ‘You Wish’, originally released in 2006 on the album In A Space Outta Sound has seen inclusion in DJ mixes, fan videos and streaming shares.

‘You Wish’ has achieved a near mythical status amongst fans despite it lacking the luxurious exposure afforded by those tunes released as singles and with music videos. After already celebrating 25 years with Warp Records with a best-of box set N.O.W Is The Time and a worldwide tour, George ‘E.A.S.E’ Evelvn, A.K.A Nightmares On Wax, has finally released a video for the much lauded opus.

Directed by Sally Sibbet, this new video is like something you’d see featured in an episode of Off the Air; simply put – uber stylish visuals reflecting uber stylish music. Colours, shapes and George himself assemble to make a world reminiscent of the cover to Radiohead’s Kid A however instead of a cold and computerised character, we are given a warm and sensational atmosphere. Evelvn struts along in groove with the laid back vibes created by a dreary lounge-inspired version of funk/jazz fusion. If you have not been fortunate enough to experience ‘You Wish’ just yet don’t fret. You have just been supplied with a great introduction to the track and the world of Nightmares On Wax.
