On-U Sound 30th Special

While it was Jamaican producers like King Tubby and Lee 'Scratch' Perry who developed dub reggae, in the 1980s the UK would become the centre of innovation, as London-based studio wonks Mad Professor and Adrian Sherwood pushed the genre to the outer limits. Sherwood founded the On-U Sound label in 1981, and it became a home for the likes of African Head Charge, New Age Steppers and Tackhead – as well as Japan's own Audio Active. The latter band will be accompanying Sherwood for this 30th anniversary gig, which also features sets by Ao Inoue, Kuranaka 1945 and others.
