"Various Artists: Sherwood At The Controls Volume 1: 1979 – 1984

Double vinyl / CD / download, out 6th April 2015, via On-U Sound

Compilation of early tracks produced or remixed by the legendary Adrian Sherwood; a pioneering blend of post-punk, mutant disco, dub, funk and electro

Features The Slits, Prince Far I, The Fall and Mark Stewart

Includes 6 tracks that have never been reissued in any format, and 2 completely unreleased tracks from the On-U vaults

Extensive sleevenotes that tell the story of each track alongside photos and more


Adrian Sherwood is a name most commonly associated with dub reggae, particularly his own leftfield version of the sound that he developed over the 80s and 90s, having been mentored by the likes of Prince Far I, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Dennis Bovell. This compilation seeks to highlight another side of the story: in his capacity as a DJ and live sound engineer Sherwood also connected with the likes of The Clash, Public Image Limited and The Pop Group, and went on to work with a wide variety of artists including Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Primal Scream and Blur. The tracks on this album show how Sherwood blended a dubwise approach to versioning tracks with a desire to experiment in the studio and push musical boundaries.

This is the first release in an extensive On-U Sound reissue campaign that will be coming out over the next few years.
