Nightmares on Wax is Warp Records' longest-serving signing and a pioneer of the UK electronic music scene. 'Smokers Delight,' released in 1995, catapulted N.O.W's downtempo chill-out to new heights.

'Shout Out! To Freedom...', his most recent release, displays an artist who is still at the top of his game.
