Adrian Sherwood is without doubt one of the most visionary producers in modern music, helping to break down the boundaries between exploratory genres including dub/reggae and industrial. His On-U Sound label imprint has joined forces with Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records for a new collection to celebrate female artists operating in the realms of dub music. We’re delighted that Maria Wenda of The Lani Singers is amongst those featured on the release.
Dub No Frontiers exhibits 10 tracks from a variety of female artists Sherwood has known and encountered in the U.K. and during his travels around the world; among them are the likes of Rita Morar, Maria Wenda, Kerieva, Saba Tewelde, Yehaiyahan, and Temi Oyedelete, with the latter’s “I Dupe (Thanks Giving)” serving as the album’s introductory single.
This album is dedicated to the memory of both Ariane ‘Ari Up’ Forster and Lincoln Valentine ‘Style’ Scott with whom the project started.
