Streatham Island Discs No.12: On-U Version Excursion

May 18, 2010

More On-U, I’m afraid. I seem to be listening to a lot of this stuff at the moment. These two are from early in the On-U story, 1981, when the label was focused on reggae, albeit a twisted version thereof.

First up is Jah Woosh, from the ‘Wild Paarty Sounds vol1’ compilation. ‘The Woodpecker Sound’, one of a long line of Jamaican DJ records devoted to bird calls.


After that it’s the essential dub version: ‘Chemical Specialist’ from Creation Rebel & New Age Steppers. Killer dub effects on this one.
