Description

Adrian Sherwood’s legendary On-U Sound imprint drops an incredible compilation highlighting his pioneering and singular production sound. From the label:

“A compilation of early tracks produced or remixed by the legendary Adrian Sherwood; a pioneering blend of post-punk, mutant disco, dub, funk and electro.

Adrian Sherwood is a name most commonly associated with dub reggae, particularly his own leftfield version of the sound that he developed over the 80s and 90s, having been mentored by the likes of Prince Far I, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Dennis Bovell, This compilation seeks to highlight another side of the story: in his capacity as a DJ and live sound engineer Sherwood also connected with the likes of The Clash, Public Image Limited and The Pop Group, and went on to work with a wide variety of artists including Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Primal Scream and Blur. The tracks on this album show how Sherwood blended a dubwise approach to versioning tracks with a desire to experiment in the studio and push musical boundaries.”

BOTH RECORDS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH MINIMAL PLAY. DOWNGRADED TO VG+ DUE TO SOME LIGHT SURFACE MARKS FROM INNER SLEEVE WHICH DO NOT AFFECT PLAYBACK
