The British DJ / Producer George Evelyn, aka DJ Ease, aka NIGHTMARES ON WAX, despite his relative lack of years, has for more than a decade already numbered among the most visionary musicians on the island. He has never left his hometown of Leeds since he was born, but his sound is nonetheless universal and his recordings for the English label Warp have frequently set new trends. Even his first single, "Dextrous", found its way into the English Top 75 and his subsequent releases are still today regarded as prototypes for the downbeat genre. The following album, "Word of Science", with its combination of soulful bleeps and clonks, underscored his creative potential, but even so it was a full 6 years before he released his classic, "Smoker's Delight" (1995), one of the milestone records of the nineties.
Opening with his trademark song, "Nights Interlude", this record has played itself into innumerable hearts, record collections and annual charts, has been a dope beat classic ever since its release and has yet to lose any of its allure. His album, "Carboot Soul" (1999), as well as his collaborations with De La Soul, O.C. and Corinna Joseph, seamlessly picked up where the success of their predecessor left off and charted all over Europe. The album "Mind Elevation" 2002 release is the fourth album, is another welcome hit of chilled beats, entrancing melodies and soothing soul-drenched vocals. While persevering with the use of live instrumentation, Evelyn--a one-time judge of Amsterdam's High Times Cannabis Cup--has fortunately not sacrificed any of the dreamy ambience and looped samples that made 1995's Smokers Delight such essential post-club listening.

In a sense, comparing any of the DJ Kicks releases to another in the series is like, you guessed it, apples and oranges. Perhaps not as "fluid" as some in the series (a la K&D) the NOW set does a great job at setting a goal and getting there in style.
A good mix of instrumental hip-hop, with a few choice MC tracks blended in, DJ Ease creates a streetwise blend that's great for chilling, driving, partying, styling, mackin', whatever. It also has a legit raw feel that's not too over-produced.
DJ Kicks: For spectacular trip-hop choose K&D. For lounge choose Thievery (despite a lack of mixing talent). For funky British underground, choose Stereo MCs (again, poor mixing). For funky, trippy hip-hop, this is it.
Just what I needed when I got it.

From reading other reviews here, it should be obvious to the potential buyer that yes, this album is not Carboot Soul or Smoker's Delight. It does not contain the smooth, downbeat grooves that make both albums must-have classics. (I knew this, however, when I bought the Nightmares on Wax DJ Kicks album.) Notwithstanding that, I guess my problem with the CD is that, in simple terms, in never properly establishes a groove. It sounds disjointed. Other DJ Kicks releases such as the fabulous K&D album maintain a continuous mood; this one does not. If you're a real Nightmares on Wax fan, it's worth having. It's really not that bad. It's just that there's a lot of better stuff out there for your money.

The "DJ Kicks" compilation series has had some realy, really great CDs come out of it, most notably the mixes by Giles Peterson and Kemistry & Storm. They've been stylistically very unique and wide, with really good songs strung together regardless of the style. This one by N.O.W. isn't one of the best ones, but it's not bad. It's a great hip-hop disc minus the rapping, so if you're looking for hip-hop mood music sans vocals (for the MOST part), this is it. I thought it might be a little more moody - more in the vein of say, early DJ Cam - but it's beats are very traditional hip-hop.
The soundtrack for bombing subway cars and school buildings with spray paint, but not as underground in parts as you may like if you're a hip-hop head.

Man I was disappointed on getting this one. It is mediocre at best. It is a compilation of artists that want to make cool experimental hip hop but dont even come near it, with the exception of the safe Tribe Called Quest track. Some of it is tolerable but it is painful knowing how much I paid for it. Get K & D DJ Kicks it is much better, or Truby Trio.
Utterly Disappointed out

4 Solid stars. Actually, there is one 5 star song on this album that makes the whole thing worth it. Check out the record, it is unmixed so you get the complete songs.
