Adrian Sherwood

  • Friday 16 December 2011

Adrian Sherwood is the maverick and legendary artist, producer, performer and boss of the cult British label, On-U Sound Records.

Sherwood inspires audiences around the world with his one-of-a kind live performances of dub. Over the years he has pushed the boundaries of music as a producer and performer and been described as a true sonic pioneer.

Never straying far from the cutting edge, Sherwood creates a unique style of live-dubbed dj sets. He delivers a powerful, bass-driven ominous mix of contemporary dub, and original roots, dance, dub and reggae sounds — processed into a live cacophony of reverb delays and FX.

As well as performing regularly in the club environment, Sherwood has been chosen as the special guest DJ support for acts as diverse as Queens Of The Stone Age, Primal Scream and Blur. He has also appeared on festival bills such as Fuji Rock Festival, Bestival, The Big Chill, Glastonbury…

“Revered by generations of dub, industrial, and electronic music aficionados and lauded by critics.”

“The show features dubmaster Adrian on the mixer, modulating and transforming sounds on real time, making the show unique and unrepeatable.”

“He draws on a vast range righteous musics from around the globe to create a conquering lion of earth-shaking psychedelic rhythm and sound that will delight any fan of the trademarked On-U style.”
