It's a mystery, really, why a music biz legend like Adrian Sherwood hasn't
released a solo album until now.
Okay, the man has been rather busy over the last twenty years or so, producing
and/or remixing some of the most innovative recordings under his own moniker or
that of his On-U Sound label Never Trust A Hippy reflects the way its maker sees
the multifarious Real World.
"It's a logical marriage," Sherwood says. "I was thinking about myself in
conjunction with the bulk of what Real World has done. It's not a remix album,
it's one piece of work. It's my own version of a kind of world music-sci-fi-dub-dancehall
record, made contemporary by using such great people as Sly and Robbie, Lenky,
Jazzwad and Bubblers." This being his first venture as a solo artist, he admits
to feeling slightly trepidatious about stepping into unknown territory. But
after testing it out on the dance floor - his fail-safe litmus test - he is
exceptionally proud of the result. "I can play this out in clubs and happily
have it represent me. And I know these tracks go down really well loud.
