Having listened to a few tracks by Nightmares on Wax and based on the pure quality of previous releases in this series I bought this album without listening to it. But as soon as I set it off playing I knew I had made an excellent purchase and this was going to be one funky outing.
Keeping to the fantastic eclectic formula that this series has produced so far, NOW has produced a beauty here. Starting off with the cool midnight marauders NOW manages to melt the tracks together so well you dont notice one track finishing and the other starting.
There are so many good tracks on this album but the highlights for me would be 'Quincy Jones - Listen' and 'Dusty Springfield - Spooky'
I would recommend this album to all late night chillers and fans of NOW alike. This is one CD I will be playing for a long time to come.
From the chilled-out NOW remix of "Gravy Train" to the amazingly funky "Sneakin In The Back", from the dub-like "Show Me Some Love" to the spaced-out "California Suite", from the ideal-for-smoking "Action Tape 1" to the groovy "Spooky", from the full-on-beat "Bout That Time" to the sweet-vocal "Having Your Fun" you cannot miss for buying this album. And the cover version of Cymande's "Brothers On The Side Dub" is excellent.
The mixing is probably the best in the Late Night series with every tune effortlessly blended with each other, offering the smoothest transitions. And with a track selection almost impeccable this latest instalment is as good as (if not better) than Rae & Christian's Another Late Night (my personal favourite). I would strongly suggest that you start collecting the Late Night series if you are thinking about it, and if you have already then there is no doubt that you will buy this one. I already can't wait for dub-reggae masters Sly & Robbie's next Late Night release.
My favourite tracks on this compilation are Midnight Marauders and Listen (What It Is), neither of which I can give a good description to but which fit so well with the aim of the series of a compilation of music for late night listening.
If you like this collection then try to get the compilations by Zero 7 and Groove Armada in this series.
So.... to the music? Well three little words should give most people enough evidence for the cd's quality.... nightmares on wax. How could it be wrong if chosen by such talent? It can't. To describe the stlye is very difficult.... i guess theres quite a hip hop influence, and it wouldn't be out of place playing in one of those cosmo bars you come across in random alleys in cities.
From the kick off the funky-but-light midnight marauders see's the begining of a trend for this cd: tracks which you can listen to in the car; when talking with friends; at parties; with a glass of wine and a good book; or when you come in from a night out and need a serious chill out. The list is truely endless, and all the tracks are perky enough to bring out the boogie in you if you need, but chilled enough to relax you, or use as background music.
Stand out tracks really have to be the very excellent use of dusty springfields "spooky" and the utterly funky feel-good fling song "having your fun" from Focus.
It is extremely rare to find such a collection of consistent tracks both in terms of stlye and quality, and this album is a must buy for fans of the series so far, fans of nightmares on wax, and people who appreciate anything musically more diverse than the top 20 chart singles.
