Once in every while Simon Wade, our man in London, sets together a show with the sounds and spirit from Adrian Sherwood’s On U Sound label. Here’s another mix.
In Simon’s words:
“In collaboration with Hebden sound the show features previews of Adrian Sherwood’s label with upcoming releases and a resurrection of some archive scientific dancehall classics.”
“ I began listening to On u sound through mix tapes from friends at college around 1983 onwards. So it’s great to be given the opportunity to once again share some of them to a wider public . Fast forward to now and we are all looking forward to the future Coldcut collaboration as with the “Every day another sanction “ which came out on a 7 inch recently and features Jamaican roots singer Chezideck. Coldcut are legendary pioneers of “decknology” always a must see must hear duo of Matt Black and Jonathon Moore. “
