Nightmares On Wax „Back To Nature“

The king of chillout is back. Nightmares On Wax returns with his bewitching and profound new cut, Back To Nature. The track is quintessential Nightmares on Wax; a slowed down, exquisitely produced, emotional journey into humankind’s relationship with the natural world. The accompanying video, directed by João Pombeiro, follows this narrative through its cut-up collage of magazines, postcards and vintage film, with positive glimpses of a future harmonious utopia.

Nightmares main man, George Evelyn says “Back to nature” is a reminder of our relationship to nature, something amazing that we are all a part of. In the modern world it’s become easy to forget that, to have the idea that nature is something that happens in the background to the human race. When in reality, we are an inherent part of it.” 

As the title alludes, this is George stripping away the layers to reveal the very essence of what makes him such an influential artist. It is the product of one of his many travels around the world, where he has been DJing to packed clubs and festivals none stop for the past two years. On one of these journeys he encountered the ancient native American and Mexican ceremonial practices of Peyote, working with a shaman from each region on different occasions. On one of those occasions George was given permission to record the ambiance of the ceremony that took place in the Yucatan jungle. After working with Texan Shaman, Kuauthli Vasquez, in Ibiza, George had the idea/vision to bring together both experiences to deliver this reminder of our relationship to mother earth and nature. The concept would be the heart driven dialogue of  Kuauthli Vasquez, the ambiance of the jungle and the classical beat driven sound that is Nightmares on Wax.

Nightmares on Wax is one of the most influential artists of a generation, his music has inspired many musicians and producers across the globe over his quarter decade career. As Warp’s longest serving active artist, he has broadened the sound of the label and paved the way for artists such as Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Mount Kimbie. This track is the first of a new body of work that he has been honing over the past few years, with more to come. Watch this space...
