The merry men of Uprooted Sunshine bring long-standing dub pioneer Adrian Sherwood for a live trip deep into Dub forest tonight at Shelter.
For fans of the dub genre, Sherwood needs no introduction – he has been an integral part of the scene for nearly three decades, working with many of the reggae and dub greats, such as Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Prince Far I, Mikey Dread, Sly & Robbie, Dennis Bovell and Bim Sherman to name but a few.
But in case you’re not so familiar with the name, Sherwood has remixed a whole host of top international acts such as Coldcut, Depeche Mode, Primal Scream, Pop Will Eat Itself, Sinéad O’Connor, and Skinny Puppy. You may also have heard of On-U Sound Records… it’s Sherwood’s label.
There aren’t many acts who have been at the forefront of of a musical movement for 30 years and there are even fewer who make it to Shanghai to perform live. For a more in-depth read of the man and his achievements, check out his interview with uncarved.org. And then come to his show tonight.
