Legendary dub/post-punk producer Adrian Sherwood and dubstep originator Pinch (Robert Ellis) first met in 2012, when Pinch invited Sherwood to guest DJ at London's Fabric club.
Immediately sensing a connection, the two expressed interest in working together on music. Singles "Bring Me Weed" and "Music Killer" were both co-released by Sherwood's On-U Sound and Pinch's Tectonic in 2013. Late Night Endless, an album of boundary-pushing futuristic dub featuring instrumentation by frequent Sherwood collaborator Skip McDonald (Little Axe, Tackhead) and guest appearances by Mikey Dread, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Bim Sherman, and others, arrived in early 2015. Sherwood and Pinch subsequently toured together, setting up their mixing desks on-stage and performing live soundclashes. Second full-length Man vs. Sofa appeared in 2017. Even further over the edge than Late Night Endless, the album included piano by Martin Duffy (Primal Scream, Felt) as well as additional contributions from McDonald and Perry. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
