Nightmares on Wax
Iconic Warp mainstay Nightmares on Wax is announcing his long-anticipated return with new album Shape The Future. The marriage of soul, hip-hop, dub and timeless club sounds that N.O.W. has been mutating and perfecting for years finds perhaps its most fluid form yet on Shape The Future.
Energized by globetrotting runs of studio sessions and DJ sets, this latest salvo is a masterpiece of contemporary and classic genre-blending that solidifies Nightmares On Wax’s place as an inspirational electronic music figurehead. This includes the shamanistic vocals of recent single Back To Nature, and in particular the arresting voices of Mozez alongside Kanye West and Flume collaborator Allan Kingdom, as featured on brand new cut Citizen Kane.
Nightmares on Wax is one of the most influential artists of a generation, his music has inspired many musicians and producers across the globe over his quarter decade career. As Warp’s longest serving active artist, he has broadened the sound of the label and paved the way for artists such as Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Mount Kimbie.
Since making her club debut at the Buzz event at Nation in 2001, Christine Moritz has been intriguing clubgoers in Washington, D.C. and beyond with her sound, which ranges from haunting, cinematic downtempo to upbeat, funk-influenced tunes.
Her 2002 warm-up set for Thievery Corporation at the 9:30 Club caught the ear of Thievery's Eric Hilton, leading to a coveted residency at Eighteenth Street Lounge. In 2009 she reprised this role, doing DJ sets before all five of Thievery Corporation's sold-out shows at the 9:30 Club.
Christine has played with such artists as RJD2, Bebel Gilberto, Nightmares on Wax, Amon Tobin, Zero 7, Massive Attack, UNKLE, Koop, Little Dragon, Jazzanova, Rainer Trüby, Brazilian Girls, Underworld, the Orb, Gotan Project, and Groove Armada. In 2006, she performed at the UK's highly regarded Big Chill Festival, a three-day outdoor event with 30,000 attendees. In 2007, she DJ'd in Bristol, England at the invitation of Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja. Christine has also graced the decks in London, Edinburgh, Prague, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Baltimore as well as at numerous D.C.-area venues.
A seasoned radio DJ, Christine hosted the acclaimed show "Variety Is the Spice of Life" (currently on hiatus) on the University of Maryland's WMUC (88.1 FM and online) for more than 15 years.
Christine has been featured in print publications such as the Washington Post and the Washington City Paper, as well as in online sources such as Resident Advisor. A talented music journalist herself, she has written about artists such as Fat Freddy's Drop, A. Skillz and Krafty Kuts, and Alice Russell.
