Shape The Future is both a perfect marriage of soul, hip-hop and dub, yet doesn't shy away from his earliest incarnations within the bass-heavy bleep techno sound of his very first 12"s for Warp, released nearly three decades ago.
Making Shape The Future, I've journeyed both inwardly and outwardly all over the world and both physically and emotionally. I feel like I had to mature making this record, as it posed a lot of challenges along the way—more than I anticipated. I've brought in a lot of outside people including musicians and a lot of orchestration. It's brought a lot of enrichment.
- George Evelyn (Nightmares on Wax)
The album with cameos from UK soul singers like Andrew Ashong, Jordan Rakei, former Zero 7 vocalist Mozez and Canadian rapper Allan Kingdom.
Shape The Future is sure to be the most timeless Nightmares on Wax record to date, a salvo masterpiece of contemporary and classic genre-blending, that brilliantly solidifies Nightmares On Wax’s place as an inspirational electronic music figurehead.
