Nightmares on Wax In A Space Outta Sound
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Warp
If it's not yet summer where you live, producer/DJ George Evelyn's latest will have you vibing like it is without leaving your house. As with his chill-out classics Smoker's Delight and Carboot Soul, the feeling-real-good strains of funky, spacey hip-hop permeate In A Space like velvety-sweet smoke. A bit predictable and slow at the outset, the Caribbean dub of "Flip Ya Lid" and dreamy Middle Eastern patina of "Damn" pick up the pace nicely. Hazy, languid vocals on "Me!" and "Soul Purpose" keep things engaging and fluid. If it sounds tired, you've been sleeping too long-Evelyn's still weaving pleasant dreams.
