Science Fiction Dancehall Classics

Trevor Jackson made one's mark by remixing classic post-punk/industrial songs a few years ago. Now he was asked to compile an extensive retrospective of British producer Adrian Sherwood's influential On-U Sound label. The Result Science Fiction Dancehall Classics is nothing more or less a document about a creative period of underground music. On-U Sound was not only a platform for dub reggae projects. For me they brought artists with various backgrounds together especially artists from the post-punk era like Mark Stewart. Otherwise the label signed artists that points into hip-hop. The collection includes one of the first recordings by Shara Nelson before she got success with Massive Attack. But over all song is Sherwood's inspired dub-sound.

Enjoy and have a good Sunday.

The Swede hat gesagt…

On-U Sound was a truly crucial outlet at that time - it was a real trade mark of quality for a while. Singers & Players, Little Axe, Creation Rebel, New Age Steppers, Dub Syndicate, Mark Stewart, Lee Perry and many more, all released great records on the label that found their way into my collection. I still have that Shara Nelson 12" too. Great Sunday post Walter.
