Nightmares On Wax to Celebrate 25th Anniversary with Compilation Box Set and Extensive Tour

Veteran DJ/producer George Evelyn celebrates his 25th anniversary of releasing music as Nightmares on Wax this year, a birthday he also shares with longtime label home Warp, and has announced some big plans to mark the occasion. In addition to issuing a career-spanning compilation, Evelyn will also embark on a North American and European tour lasting from late spring to early fall.

The N.O.W. is the Time collection will follow just under a year from Nightmares on Wax's seventh album for Warp, 2013's Feelin' Good, when it drops on June 16. The release will be packaged as two CDs of highlights from his discography, and also as a vinyl box set featuring the compilation, two LPs worth of exclusives and rarities, and a 12"x12" book of "unseen photographs, memorabilia, and extensive interviews with key figures in the development of Nightmares On Wax—including Warp co-founder Steve Beckett, original Nightmares member Kev Harper, Robin Taylor-Firth, and George [Evelyn] himself—conducted by Bill Brewster (author of Last Night A DJ Changed My Life)." Though neither the CD nor the vinyl tracklists are currently available, the artwork for N.O.W. is the Time can be found below, where the extensive list of dates for Nightmares on Wax's five month tour are also included.
