25 years on from when he first started making music, Nightmares On Wax releases N.O.W. IS THE TIME, a special album of highlights from his career as Warp's longest serving artist and an essential release documenting one of the most continuously inventive musical minds of the last quarter of a century.
George Evelyn was born and raised in inner city Leeds - a far cry from the Ibizan farmhouse where he currently resides. Heavily influenced by everything from Jazz and soul to dub and reggae, he first came to widespread attention in the late '80s / early '90s with bleep anthems Aftermath and Dextrous.
It was the tripped out, hip-hop deconstructing Smokers Delight album - released in 1995 - that truly cemented his reputation though. This was followed up by the equally compelling Carboot Soul album released in 1999.
Meanwhile, his most recent full-length Feelin' Good, released in 2013, is an album of sun-soaked jams that oozes summery euphoria.
N.O.W. IS THE TIME captures all the various musical guises Evelyn has adopted over the years, containing his best known work as well as some rare cuts and reinterpretations of his music from the likes of Morgan Geist, LFO, Special Request and Mr. Scruff.
