On-U Sound are on something of a roll. This year has seen the release of Sherwood at the Controls, a round up of label boss Adrian Sherwood's pioneering post punk and dub productions from 79-84, Science Fiction Dancehall Classics, a selection of On-U Sound's wonky dancefloor classics as curated by Trevor Jackson, and Late Night Endless, Sherwood's collaboration with dubstep producer Pinch, released jointly on Tectonic.
Now the label has dug out Warzone, the one-off 1984 album from The Missing Brazilians. A collision of dub and electronics pushed into the furthest reaches of cold war paranoia, the record has long passed into cult status, with New York's DFA Records declaring the album a 'stone cold classic'.
The reissued vinyl has been recut at Berlin's Dubplates and Mastering studio to give the bass extra depth. It's coming packaged in a 4 way gatefold sleeve, with an addtional 12" insert, and the whole package looks pretty tasty to us - check out Augusto Pablo-esque opening track Crocodile Court below.
