Adrian Sherwood - Solid Steel Radio Show 25th November 2016

Solid Steel download: 25th November 2016

In Hour 2 we welcome Adrian Sherwood, legendary UK dub producer and On-U-Sound founder who has been active in the music business since the 1970's. He has long been regarded as one of the most innovative and influential artists in UK reggae, dub, industrial, post-punk and beyond, having worked with the likes of Lee "Scratch" Perry, Vivien Goldman, Mark Stewart, Cabaret Voltaire, Nine Inch Nails and Bim Sherman. His incredible On-U-Sound label released Vol. 2 of his compilation series "Sherwood At The Controls" earlier this year, putting the spotlight on his productions and remixes between 1985 and 1990. His more recent output has been alongside Pinch and productions with Coldcut, who are playing with Adrian Sherwood at London’s Jazz Cafe on December 3rd as part of ‘Sherwood at The Controls’ series with, Dennis Bovell, Crucial Tony and Perry Melius. He told us; "This is a selection of unreleased, forthcoming and relatively unknown and difficult to find Onu Sound productions / co-productions and a taster of the Coldcut/Onu collaboration, plus a Dub Plate from Irelands finest, RiRa."

    I wonder if there will ever be an album from Denise Sherwood (aka Denise Sachi Brown)? There are many better cuts on the Higher Authorities album; if you haven't heard it, don't write it off based on this one!
