The Dub Syndicate - The Pounding System
‘The Pounding System’: The debut Dub Syndicate set from 1982, pre-dating the involvement of mainstay Style Scott. This features various members of Creation Rebel and African Head Charge turning out a wild dub set, with hard-hitting rhythms and FX-mutated melodies phasing in and out of the mix.
Recorded quickly with track titles cheekily poking fun at the contemporary series by The Scientist which pitted him against various b-movie foes. The tunes themselves however are deadly serious, with version excursions on some classic On-U vocal cuts such as ‘Bedward The Flying Preacher’ and ‘Across The Red Sea’ and a continuing commitment by producer Adrian Sherwood to take his love of reggae and filter it through his exploratory and uniquely English approach. Re-cut at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.
Includes download card with bonus track and sleevenotes by Steve Barker.
