NIGHTMARES ON WAX ANNOUNCES 25TH ANNIVERSARY CARBOOT SOUL CELEBRATIONS, INCLUDING RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE REISSUE, ORCHESTRA SHOWS & MORE ON WARP RECORDS



RELEASES 20TH OF APRIL 2024

ADDITIONAL 7” VINYL INCLUDES TWO TRACKS ON VINYL TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME, ONE FT DE LA SOUL PLUS SPECIAL CARBOOT SOUL SHOWS WITH LIVE BAND


Today, Nightmares On Wax announces the reissue of the iconic, genre-defining, Carboot Soul, exclusively for record store day 2024. A beloved classic among N.O.W.'s discography, this special release coincides perfectly with 4/20!


Marking its 25th anniversary, the reissue of Carboot Soul comes with an exclusive 7” featuring renditions of two iconic tracks: "Les Nuits (Hip Hop Reprise)" and “Keep On feat. De La Soul (Chill Mix)” with hip-hop royalty De La Soul. In tandem, N.O.W. announces a special show series, reinterpreting Carboot Soul live with various ensembles in major European cities. The reissue reveals a revitalized album cover and a distinctive fold-out flap sleeve, comic book insert, and a car number plate sticker, injecting a touch of uniqueness into this timeless classic.


Reflecting on Carboot Soul, Nightmares On Wax says: “I'm really, really excited about this reissue of the 25th anniversary of Carboot Soul, it feels great to celebrate this album. It all comes in new packaging with a re-vamp of its original artwork which was done by Zulu Monk / Monkey Lee and it comes with a bonus 7-inch which has an unreleased hip hop version of Les Nuits as well as an unreleased track which is a version of the De La Soul Track I recorded at the same time as recording this album. The name Carboot Soul comes from me always going to car boot sales & flea markets digging for records. Then I would sample these records, make these tracks, and then go back to the car to see if the mixes were right. So it was like a full cycle of the music and the creation process which is why it's called Carboot Soul. So it's from the car boot, to the soul! Let's celebrate!”


Over the last three decades, as Warp's longest-serving artist, George Evelyn has consistently led the charge in contemporary music, mixing electronica, jazz, hip-hop, techno, dub, funk, and soul. Carboot Soul remains the epitome of N.O.W.'s earliest and genre-defining works, continuing to captivate audiences even after 25 years.
