A companion album to the critically acclaimed Midnight Rocker, this is Adrian Sherwood's "sound system" take on the original sessions. Featuring new tracks, radical dancehall reworks with MC interjections from Daddy Freddy and Lone Ranger, and stripped-back instrumental version excursions in classic dub reggae style.
Continuing the series that Sherwood began with Heavy Rain, his re-working of Lee "Scratch" Perry's Rainford album, Midnight Scorchers is both an essential sequel to Midnight Rocker as well as being a powerful album in its own right.
The companion album to last month's Midnight Rocker finds On-U Sound majordomo Adrian Sherwood doing what he does best: sending the original recordings he made with reggae vocalist Horace Andy through his dubbed out, glitchy audio filter. And in true soundsystem form, the legendary producer turns this material inside out with the help of a pair of MCs that toast their way through a quartet of tracks and splash additional colors all over the studio walls with blasts of echo and reverb and an overlay of steely, cybernetic circuitry that gives this entire session a synthetic patina.
