For more than three decades, Adrian Sherwood has been consistently breaking new ground and his name is celebrated by anyone with any interest in dub, reggae, post-punk, industrial, bass music and experimentalism. As the founder of the cult and fiercely independent On-U Sound label he has brought the attention of artists like Tackhead, New Age Steppers, Gary Clail, African Headcharge, Dub Syndicate and Creation Rebel to international attention. Unsurprisingly a musician’s musician, Adrian’s production credits include everyone from The Slits to Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode to The Fall, Blur to Einsturzende Neubauten, Primal Scream and many, many more.
Perhaps best known for his pioneering work in dub and reggae, Adrian’s name also draws reverence for his highly acclaimed work with the likes of Lee “Scratch” Perry, Prince Far I, Junior Delgado, I-Roy and Mikey Dread.
He is once again firmly in the spotlight with the lauded ‘Sherwood at the Controls’ compilations, his sold-out residency at the Jazz Café, as well as albums with Roots Manuva, Coldcut and ‘Sherwood & Pinch’.
Recently he has produced critically acclaimed albums with dub legends Lee Scratch Perry and Horace Andy
