THE POUNDING SYSTEM (LP+MP3)
12" Vinyl UK 17.11.17
the debut dub syndicate set from 1982, pre-dating the involvement of mainstay style scott. this features various members of creation rebel and african head charge turning out a wild dub set, with hard-hitting rhythms and fx-mutated melodies phasing in and out of the mix . recorded quickly with track titles cheekily poking fun at the contemporary series by the scientist which pitted him against various b-movie foes. the tunes themselves however are deadly serious, with version excursions on some classic on-u vocal cuts such as “bedward the flying preacher” and “across the red sea”, and a continuing commitment by producer adrian sherwood to take his love of reggae and filter it through his exploratory and uniquely english approach. re-cut at dubplates & mastering in berlin. includes download card with bonus track and sleevenotes by steve barker (on the wire)

DISPLACED MASTERS (LP+MP3)
12" Vinyl UK 17.11.17
unreleased archival tracks from the on-u vaults! serving the same purpose as the recent return of the crocodile set did for african head charge, this lp illuminates the early development of one of the flagship acts on the label, allowing some truly magnificent versions to be heard for the first time. mostly stripped-back raw takes, they highlight the rock solid rhythm foundation laid down by such incredible players as style scott and charlie eskimo fox, as well as three vital soul-in-the-echo-chamber interjections from the late, great bim sherman. essential early-80s dub damage.

TUNES FROM THE MISSING CHANNEL (LP+MP3)
12" Vinyl UK 17.11.17
increasing access to new studio technology resulted in this splicing of dub reggae dna with cut-and-paste sampledelia. anticipating the later work of labels such as def jux, wordsound and anticon, this 1985 album paired crack jamaican session musicians such as the roots radics’ drummer style scott (by this point the instrumental leader of dub syndicate) and the congos’ ashanti roy with public image limited’s jah wobble and keith levene, not to mention the restless mixing desk boundary-pushing of producer and de facto member adrian sherwood. a more reggaefied take on the industrial funk sherwood was making with tackhead during the same period, lovers of digidub, outernational sounds and even the wilder reaches of 80s hip-hop will find much to get lost in here

under secret construction in the on u workshop for the last few months, lee perrys interpretation of the black sabbath classic iron man is finally ready, complete with heavy boots of lead. with adrian sherwood at the controls, and additional input from renowned reggae producer dennis bovell, this full on thumping dub stepper finds scratch positioning himself as the iron man - lion man - lightning man - super man who dont drink no booze while sub basses throb and wobble the bolts from his joints and the beats hit harder than a rivet gun... surely not what ted hughes had in mind. the flipside dub mix arrives courtesy of pempi, who recently broke out with a track on studio rockers? at the controls compilation. pempi ups the full of dread quota with a heavy barrage of drums, stuttering synths and swelling bass, to create a version that has the potential to consume every motor vehicle in the southern hemisphere. iron man lives again!

BROADCASTER
12" Vinyl UK 06.05.09
this second outing in the series of special remix 12s from lee perrys the mighty upsetter album finds tony moody boyz thorpe back at the controls, and this time hes brought his full kit of soundsystem tools along to the job. rocking the spot on an uptempo steppers rhythm, his fired up take on international broadcaster is a tight sprung burst of bogle energy, laying righteous claim to the ground where dancehalls brash excitement meets dubsteps plunging bass dynamics. awash with selectah sounds and mile long reverb delays swirling around a monster sub-bass undertow, an insistent funkin for jamaica beat drives the ride while a slick sing jay hook from lsk rotates to habit forming effect. with the added attraction of mr scratch and mr manuva doubling on abstract deejay instructions ? adjust your face... adjust your waist - the propulsive five minute sunsplash of international broadcaster will kick up dust in every yard where they do the reggae clap. no vocal version excursion on the backside ups the needles to red on the dubwise meter for extra soundboy satisfaction.

BRING ME WEED
12" Vinyl UK 11.06.13
last year, adrian sherwood, artist, producer and founder of the legendary dub label on-u sound, and pinch, one of the freshest faces in dubstep and the man behind hits like qawwali, joined forces to reconstruct pieces of survival & resistance, sherwoods first album in 6 years. pinchs contribution to the recovery time ep proved so successful that it has now led to the pair cementing an equal partnership - a brand new project that brings two seminal producers operating within different orbits of the bass and dub scene together. the first fruits of this studio collaboration can be heard on the killer on-u sound vs. tectonic 12 inch, which pairs up bring me weed with the weed psychosis mix - a vital melding of their two styles and an intriguing preview of more to come. after a stunning debut show at sonar tokyo, sherwood & pinch appear at sonar barcelona 14 june, dour 20 july and neopop 10 august.

YELLOW TONGUE
12" Vinyl UK 25.05.09
with yet more prestige productions in the can and waiting to be announced, the mighty upsetter remix series steps up a gear with this pumpin dumpin rub from kode 9. the hyperdub boss took the better part of six months to work and rework lee perry and adrian sherwoods original audio ingredients, repeatedly returning to the drawing board, and here at last are the fruits of those reverent labours. heavily reshaped from the prototype album cut apart from lee perry and samia farahs reverb soaked vocals which remain largely intact, kode 9s remix of yellow tongue strikes right at the heart of funky, emphasising what that word has meant for three plus decades while at the same time highlighting the better elements of the bass oriented genre which has recently co opted the name. insistent clicking beats and a subtly pulsating rhythm fuel the ride, yet its the looping mid tempo house groove that gives this track its dancefloor appeal as much as its fragmented syncopation and pneumatic low end spring. offbeat dub version on the flip nails selector essential status, as if that was ever in doubt, and with a limited pressing run confirmed this is one not to be missed.

NU SOUND & VERSION (CD)
cd UK 15.11.11
on-u sound presents lee scratch perry nu sound and version to give it it s full title - contains reworked, remixed and re-interpretated versions of 11 adrian sherwood-produced lee perry classics. reggae legend lee scratch perry first began working with on-u sound in the late 1980. initially working with style scott s dub syndicate rhythm section, he then collaborated with adrian sherwood on time boom x de devil dead in 1987 and from the secret laboratory in 1990. he would return to the label in 2008 to release the mighty upsetter and it s companion-piece dub setter. the tracks on this album see lee perry receive some of the most radical treatment his work has ever had, as his distinctive vocals bob and weave in the midst of bass, rave riddims and extreme experimentation fashioned from the imaginations of some of todays most cutting-edge, dub-influenced producers. newly commissioned versions by bullion, congo natty, dialect & kosine, and adrian sherwood make their exclusive debut appearances here, alongside productions plucked from the sought after series of limited 12 s by kode9, mala of digital mystikz, moody boyz, horsepower productions, and pempi. all original recordings produced by adrian sherwood.
