Adrian Sherwood and Pinch have developed a new live project under the moniker ‘Sherwood and Pinch’. Deep Space and Dub Champions Festival are proud to present the US Debut of this historic collaboration by these two seminal figureheads, operating within different orbits of the bass and dub scene.
Adrian Sherwood needs little introduction. For more than three decades he has been chartering the highly acclaimed On-U Sound label, building up a colossal body of work. He is known for taking his productions to the frontier by experimenting with dub and other seemingly alien sounds such as electronica, industrial grind and uncovered world music. Through On-U and beyond he has nurtured the careers of Tackhead and Mark Stewart, and has a long-standing creative relationship with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. He has infected the output of Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and Primal Scream through his signature production skills, with recent remixes for Django Django and Peaking Lights. A restless innovator, his 2012 album ‘Survival and Resistance’ was heralded as being ‘on murderous, devastating form’.
One of the key figures of the genre loosely regarded as ‘bass music’ Rob Ellis, better known as Pinch stands out among the fluid group of like-minded dubstep musicians that define the so-called Bristol sound. Another label owner, through his Tectonic label he has championed artists like 2562 and Skream before the eventual release with dub legend, Scientist. Other notable markers in his discography include his 2012 FABRICLIVE offering and the eponymous Pinch & Shackleton album on Honest Jon’s.
