'in a space outta sound' harks back to the trippy beats of 'smokers delight', woven together with some heavy references from older dub reggae sounds, recalling prince far i and lee perry. this is george evelyn aka e.a.s.e's 5th album for warp and his discography spans over 10 years. nightmares on wax is one of warp's biggest selling and longstanding artists and is most famously known for his 'smokers delight' album, now regarded as one of the classic chill out albums of the 90s. 'in a space outta sound' should appeal to and please fans of all previous nightmares on wax albums and catch the attention of a new generation of laidback loving sound seekers. each track sounds as if its taken from a sonic palette from each continent, whether it's the infectious african percussion of 'african pirates', the recurring caribbean reggae riddims in 'sweetest' and 'flip ya lid', the seduction of the persian snake charmers harpsichord entwined around 'damn!' or motown's soul-laid-bare in 'i am you'. sometimes it is a blend of them all.
