A master at the mixing desk, Adrian Sherwood has always pushed the electronic and technological boundaries when it came to producing musical sound. Following Chris Blackwell, Adrian spent time in the hills of Jamaica, working with a number of musicians who led him into the darker side of Reggae music. Adrian took his newfound inspiration back to London, where he recorded and produced music with UB40, Sinead O’Connor, The Slits, Little Annie, Depeche Mode, and in the mid ’80s, KEITH LEBLANC, and his Original Sugar Hill Rhythm Section mates, Skip McDonald, and Doug Wimbish.

And now, Adrian is known for his own sound. The sound he creates in the ON-U SOUND RECORDS laboratory. 

When English producer Adrian Sherwood met the Original Sugar Hill Rhythm Section, it was like a pound of Mercury had been thrown into a gallon of fresh water. After the explosion, out of the burning ash, rose an Industrial Funk Monster called TACK>>HEAD

When the band came to life, and set free in London’s Underground, the Young Americans’ Invasion of Britain had begun. [TAKING MICK JAGGER FOR A RIDE]
