NIGHTMARES ON WAX

SHAPE THE FUTURE | VIDEO

Warp Records

To celebrate the highly anticipated release of the new NIGHTMARES ON WAX album SHAPE THE FUTURE, the first studio album in half a decade, a new video for the album’s title track has been revealed. The video is directed by RUFFMERCY, who has previously worked on visuals for Run the Jewels and Flying Lotus. The stylised video features the director’s signature animated sketches following the protagonist as he attempts to escape a recurring cycle.

RUFFMERCY had this to say about George Evelyn aka NIGHTMARES ON WAX: “George has managed to stay relevant throughout his career, making uplifting music with positive vibes, and I think that’s key to his longevity. He’s sincere and passionate about his music and that shines through and is definitely an overriding reason why I chose to take on the project. The highlight has been working on the video for Shape the Future; it’s a killer track with a positive message running through it”.

The track is an ode to humankind and the power of positive thought in shaping your own destiny. The song is especially poignant as it features George Evelyn on vocals, something of a rarity throughout his 25-year career.

The marriage of soul, hip-hop, dub and timeless club sounds, that NIGHTMARES ON WAX has been mutating and perfecting for years, finds perhaps its most fluid form yet on SHAPE THE FUTURE. Energised by globetrotting runs of studio sessions and DJ sets, this latest salvo is a masterpiece of contemporary and classic genre-blending, that solidifies his place as an inspirational electronic music figurehead.
