George Evelyn is a true pioneer of electronic music. Since 1991, he's recorded albums for Warp Records under the alias Nightmares on Wax, blending elements of hip-hop, soul, jazz and techno in his signature spaced-out style. 

Evelyn released his seventh LP, Feelin' Good, earlier this month. In celebration of it, he's now sharing a new DJ mix, "Fun Mix #1," which is available to stream exclusively here.

"This is a feel-good, fun mix from me, playing in the moment for the joy of music," Evelyn tells Rolling Stone of the eclectic, hour-long set. "The journey is everything, and everything is everything when it comes to my influences of electronic, reggae, jazz, hip-hop, funk, disco, drum-and-bass and salsa."

This is just the beginning of Evelyn's busy fall: on October 28th, he and his live band will open their first full tour since 2008 with a show in Berlin. The North American leg begins on November 14th in Washington, D.C. Check out the full dates at the Nightmares on Wax website.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
