An On-U Journey Through Time and SpaceArtist: Various Artists
A new entry in On-U Sound’s longrunning disco plate series (the first release of which came out in 1982!), this Record Store Day exclusive features 4 sci-fi dubs from the vaults. Doctor Pablo takes Ron Grainer’s legendary theme to cult British show “Doctor Who” and spins it out into the cosmos with an appropriate overdose of space echo; Dub Syndicate reflect the early-80s obsession amongst punks and rastas alike for the alien-zapping arcade game; The Mothmen were a band of Manchester post-punks channeling Public Image Limited-type grooves into noisier realms, anticipating bands such as Liars 20 years in advance; and last but not least a classic cut from Creation Rebel’s afro-futurist Starship Africa concept album, the production that put Adrian Sherwood on the map. Cut loud at duplates & mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure.
