Lab Overview

Before founding the massively influential UK dub label On-U-Sound, Adrian Sherwood had a false start with the lesser known 4D Rhythms imprint, releasing one LP and then abandoning the project to start On-U-Sound. That LP was Starship Africa by Creation Rebel, which Sherwood reissued on O.U.S. just a few years later. Listening to this wonderfully spaced out dub excursion, you can trace Sherwood’s signature heavyweight industrial sound back to the Jamaican originators but still feel his anything-goes disposition reverberating throughout. Over 40 minutes of ultra-heavy basslines, reversed vocals, laser sound effects and clanging spring reverb jolts. Out of print for 35 years and being released Stateside for the first time ever, this RSD2017 pressing comes on gold colored vinyl with a fold-out poster that includes unpublished photos and extensive liner notes detailing the album’s creation. Recommended.
