About Adrian Sherwood

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. Sherwood continued merging stylistic worlds as the decades passed, working with reggae legends like Lee "Scratch" Perry one moment and Nine Inch Nails the next. He offered up his first solo effort in 2003 with the frenetic digital dub of Never Trust a Hippy, and released several other solo albums from that point on among his work with other artists. Sherwood remained regularly active as the years went on, producing albums like Horace Andy's 2022 set Midnight Rocker and curating the female-focused various-artists presentation Dub No Frontiers that same year.
