You’ve won a chance to go see one of the UK’s best dj/producers in the game this Saturday night at Chop Suey! So exciting!
Nightmares on Wax, AKA DJ EASE (Experimental Sample Expert), will be bringing plenty of cool out classics to the stage this weekend. Every one of his albums are a must for any stoner type, or just about anyone that can appreciate the value of downtempo riddims. I have every one of his albums and they are the perfect soundtrack to life’s more relaxing moments. Whether it be during a long road trip, when the clock hits a 1/3 past 4, a summertime bbq (mixtape) or prepping for an afternoon nap, Nightmares has something for you
NOW is currently on tour promoting his new album Thought So… and it is really good. The intro track Da Feelin’ is about as uptempo as his music will get, but maintains a level of non-chalant chillness that most producers can only strive to achieve, but never master. 195lbs is another classic joint that is on some super dub heavy Jamaican basement vibe. The vocals are grimey and distorted and almost transport you to Jamrock. Bringin it is by far my fav on the album and contains everything I love about NOW production. A simplistic drum beat that slaps, a female vocal loop, slow and steady buildup, and a lead instrument that takes almost two minutes to drop in. I strongly suggest you go pick yourself up a copy. Every track is worth a listen and as a whole the album can be classified as ’set it and forget it.’ [/Ron Popeil]
So if you enjoy some funky, soulful, smoked out beats you need to be at this show. I will be in the bar double fisting Jameson and Stella…holler at me.
