An awesome night of dub reggae at Gretchen this March with on-u sounds Adrian Sherwood and Creation Rebel bringing the irie vibes.
Thirty years since he founded the On-U Sound label, 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.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=3977357012 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
Originally the backing group for the late reggae great Prince Far-I, Creation Rebel worked with Adrian Sherwood from 1978 – 1982, recording some of the best reggae dub music this side of Lee Perry during the early English punk era. Brilliant musicians such as Eskimo Fox, Bigga Morrison, Style Scott and Crucial Tony made music that is languorous, funky, spacey, and totally intoxicating.
