Famed mix compilation series Back To Mine makes a triumphant return in 2019 to celebrate the 20th anniversary with the indomitable Nightmares on Wax.
2018 was a defining year for Nightmares on Wax. He kicked it off with the release of his latest album ‘Shape The Future’, seen by critics and fans as another classic in his illustrious, near three decade career of releasing records. He’s toured the world playing his biggest headline shows to date in all the major cities, dropped remixes from some of electronic music’s finest including Moodymann and Ron Trent, done a BBC Radio 1 Essential mix and recently broke the world record for the highest altitude DJ set, on a charity ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro.
“I always hoped that when the time was right I would be asked to do a Back To Mine release and so when the call came there was absolutely no hesitation. It’s an iconic, timeless series that conjures up so many happy memories of listening to the albums at people’s houses after the club, chilled car journeys driving through the countryside, middle of the night city screeches, pre DJ set psyche up sessions and hot summer days on the beach.
I was lucky enough to think about my track selection in some incredible locations including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and the jungle and sands of Bali, all of which gave me a lot of time and space to reflect on my tunes and deliver a mix I am delighted with. Although the series is often associated with chilled vibes, I wanted my Back To Mine mix to show both sides of my music. Of course Nightmares on Wax is known for delivering downtempo beats, but I’m also known for rocking the dancefloor...which is exactly what you are going to get if you come back to mine. I call it my ‘mini crack on’ - which is when you don’t want to go to bed just yet and still want to get into the groove. There are some wonderful exclusives in my mix and a few artists I hope I am introducing to people for the first time. I hope you enjoy.” - George Evelyn, Nightmares On Wax
