About this item

On-U follow up the recently released and critcally-acclaimed "Rainford" set from Lee Perry and Adrian Sherwood with this system-ready 10" smasher. The A-side of this EP serves up an extended version of album highlight “Makumba Rock”, with the vocal mashed into dub, and the instrumental elements brought to the fore with all manner of mixing desk insanity in classic Jamaican discomix style. On the flip is the essential non-album track “Heaven & Hell”, a psychedelic funk shuffle with decaying horns disintegrating into the fog of effects and relentless Upsetter wisdom. Both cuts are exclusive to this release, the latest in On-U’s long-running and highly collectable discoplate series.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: If it's On-U and Adrian Sherwood on 10" then I don't really need much convincing. Add some alien toasting wackiness from reggae's intergalactic spokesperson - Lee Perry - and it's in the bag it goes!
