Lee 'Scratch' Perry
Rainford

Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry finds a way to productively channel his madness on new album Rainford. Alongside long-time confidant Adrian Sherwood the dub legend has come through with an intimate and affecting LP. Cuts like ‘African Starship’ bring to mind what might happen if you managed to get The Sun Ra Arkestra into the studio at the same time as Damon Albarn when he’s in Gorillaz mode.

African Head Charge
Vision Of A Psychedelic Africa

There was a big gap in the African Head Charge history between 1993 and 2005 when there was not but a squeak from their headquarters. That all changed in 2005 with this triumphant return of Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah and Adrian Sherwood - collaborating once again on music that sounded somewhat like the album title. Hypnotic beats, dubbed-out effects and tribal psychedelia  - it is all here.

African Head Charge
Churchical Chant Of The Iyabinghi

Churchical Chant of the Iyabinghi by psychedelic-dub warriors African Head Charge is a compilation of previously unreleased remixes of tracks from their Songs Of Praise and In Pursuit Of Shashamane Land albums. It was sequenced by Patrick Dokter so you can lose yourself in the music, which is just what you want to do with this kind of thing, isn’t it?

African Head Charge
Voodoo Of The Godsent

Guess who is at the controls on this 2011 African Head Charge LP  - go on guess. Adrian Sherwood of course joined by percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah and none other than Adamski. It contains the usual blend of spacey dub, trance-like rhythms and tribal percussion alongside some pretty hard hitting MC-ing. Nice re-press with reverse board sleeve.

Nisennenmondai
#N/A

The relentless and repetitive guitar, drum and bass build-ups of Nisennenmondai have been described as ‘organic techno’. On #N/A, the band’s tenth recording, and first with iconic dub label On-U Sound, they fully embrace this. Adrian Sherwood’s production brings out the rhythmic subtleties of their noisy, minimal stomp.

Sherwood & Pinch
Late Night Endless

Two generations of dub pioneers combine as Adrian Sherwood meets Pinch on CD and vinyl for On U-Sound. Sherwood brings his singular and experimental studio mastery whilst the dark, rolling percussion can probably be attributed to Pinch’s deft fingers. Disembodied vocals, swathes of echo and heavy bass-lines dominate a collaboration so perfectly matched it seemed unlikely to ever happen.
