In the beginning, there was dub... We are proud to present an Adrian Sherwood On-U Sound mix

"Adrian Sherwood has a phenomenal CV. Inspired by reggae to teach himself sound engineering in his teens, Sherwood has forged a career that has epitomised the inter-racial trajectory of dub through England, from putting UK production on the map, right through the mutually inspiring transfusion of reggae and punk, acid house and experimental hip hop. He has collaborated with the likes of Prince Far I, Lee Scratch Perry (including the seminal album Time Boom X Di Devil Dead), Ari Up, PiL, Mark Stewart, Depeche Mode, Primal Scream and Asian Dub Foundation. In a logical progression he has recently commissioned remixes from and toured with dubstep producers Mala (Digital Mystikz) and Kode 9. When I met him, I was starstruck not simply by this list of credits and the man's talent, but a sense he inspires, partly from what is already held in my own imagination, of music's unique power to mobilise." - Melissa Bradshaw (click here for the rest of Melissa's Adrian Sherwood interview)
