Sherwood & Pinch - Man Vs Sofa
Second collaborative album by legendary UK dub producer Adrian Sherwood and Bristol dubstep don Rob Ellis aka Pinch. The follow-up to 2015’s critically acclaimed Late Night Endless. Features guest appearances from Lee Scratch Perry, Martin Duffy (Primal Scream), Taz (Dizzee Rascal) and Skip McDonald (The Sugarhill Gang, Tackhead, Little Axe). From the jittery funk of Roll Call to the industrial drone of Charger, the junglist rave-up of Juggling Act to the cosmic wisdom of the Lee Perry voiced Lies, the furious synth-grime of Gun Law to a languid breakbeat cover of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence, this is a diverse yet cohesive work, the two producer’s ability to blend and subvert each other’s signature sounds more fully realised than ever before. Once again a collaborative release between the two seminal and much-loved labels the artists respectively run, On-U Sound and Tectonic, this is an album tooled equally for the dancefloor and home listening, the bodyblow of the sound system stack and the intimacy of headphone meditation.
