African Head Charge Environmental Studies on LP + Download

After a resurgent 2015, On-U Sound will kick off the new year with vinyl re-presses of the first four African Head Charge albums. All have been re-cut at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. They also include printed inners with sleeve notes by Steve Barker (On The Wire), and digital download cards for the full album.

Second album Environmental Studies from 1982 saw African Head Charge working manipulated and vari-speeded 1/4 inch tape loops that were re-recorded back to the multi-track, soaked in reverb and delay, and then applied to the performances of the musicians, not to mention extensive use of found sounds and field recordings, hence the title.

The brainchild of Adrian Sherwood and percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah, the group forged their own undefinable sound on these early albums which sound eerily contemporary, pre-dating the experimental bass music of labels such as Hyperdub and Tectonic. Features contributions from Bruce Smith (The Pop Group), Style Scott (Roots Radics) and Deadly Headley (The Wailers).
