Adrian Sherwood

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. Although still in charge of On-U, Sherwood has mainly been working with fellow dub trailblazer Pinch over the past few years, including plenty of touring as Sherwood & Pinch. He'll be leaving his wingman behind for this Tokyo date though, as fans can look forward to a three-pronged evening of dub domination: Sherwood himself will be playing both 'classic DJ' and 'new selection' sets, before being joined by indomitable minimal-techno-rockers Nisennenmondai for the highlight of the night.
