Written by: 2 December 2016 No Comment

Adrian Sherwood, producer, founder On-U Sound and keen footie fan… appears on last weeks Solid Steel Radio show and his hour is magic…. Coldcut on the flip for an hour that is decent.

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 “
