iTunes Editors’ Notes

An accomplished musical shape-shifter, Adrian Sherwood has produced music with the stylistic restlessness of post-punk, the willful dissonance of musique concrète, and the visceral intensity of ragga, jungle, and drum and bass. This eclecticism comes naturally to Sherwood, as amply demonstrated on Survival & Resistance. Here, he uses dub’s deconstructionist toolkit to meld and tweak a breathtaking variety of sounds, from foreboding jazz accents to digital white noise. Sherwood has characterized this release as his response to Britain’s progressively deepening economic crisis, as well as to the civil unrest that wracked London in the summer of 2011—but the connection between these moody, largely instrumental soundscapes and contemporary British politics remains fairly abstract. When voices do emerge—as on the nocturnal trip-hop workout “We Flick the Switch”—they refrain from specifics, instead employing the sort of lofty Rastafarian symbolism that will be instantly familiar to reggae heads. Survival & Resistance gives listeners the chance to hear a pioneer of the dub avant-garde operating at the peak of his abilities.

Legendary producer brings the heat!

Waaay ahead of his time 30 yrs ago…Adrian is a true innovator. Great album!

ADRIAN!!!

been a long time fan of adrian and on-u sound. in my opinion, this is his personal best work. very cool to hear influences from "the bug" and "kode 9"

I love the mood...

this is true master piece. besides the fantastic music the production is spotless… or better yet, i don't think i heard better mixed music ever. i don't buy music any more because it is so bad mixed. but i heard about this one on the radio and bought it immediately. i love listening to it while driving in the night through los angeles.

Long one of the most influential and innovative figures on the U.K. reggae scene, producer Adrian Sherwood and his famed On-U Sound label pioneered a distinctive fusion of dub, rock, and dance that made waves not only in roots circles but also in the pop mainstream. Born in 1958, Sherwood first surfaced during the late '70s at the helm of a series of disastrously short-lived labels; he formed On-U Sound in 1979, and counted Creation Rebel, Prince Far I, Bim Sherman, and the Mothmen (later to form...
