Sherwood & Pinch is the on-going collaboration between Adrian Sherwood, the magisterial dub innovator and owner of the seminal label, On-U Sound, and Pinch, the brains behind the Tectonic label and master of darkly filtered bass science.
Since first singles, Bring Me Weed & Music Killer, Sherwood and Pinch have continued to devastate the dancefloors at events around the world with their deeply psychedelic, bass-driven, futuristic dub wizardry.
Late Night Endless, the first full length album, is the culmination of two years in the studio developing, re-dubbing and deconstructing tracks. It’s an intergenerational meeting of minds, a fusing of two stories, a collision of the tectonic plates of international soundsystem culture.
The currents that link post-punk, jungle, dubstep, almighty reggae, techno, Jamaica, Ramsgate and Bristol all come together in a single small DJ booth in London and explode outwards through truck-sized speakers.
This is an exciting record because of the history that pounds and pulses through it. More than that, though, it’s exciting because of what it does to you as a listener right here and now in the present; as the sample of Andy Fairley’s vocal says in Precinct of Sound: “your head will become a crazy bulbous punch bag of sound”… and what more could you ask?
