Sherwood & Pinch are London-based dub producers Adrian Sherwood and Rob Ellis aka Pinch. This is the second collaboration from the duo that originally met at the Fabric London night club. “Having spent around five years working together, our work flow has developed and improved considerably, and we both feel that the music we’re making now is something neither of us could or would do alone,” says Ellis.

‘Itchy Face’ is one of the standout arrangements on the latest record
Man Vs. Sofa, trickling with their trademark bassline punches before stepping into soft touches of the piano. Meanwhile, ‘Roll Call’ and ‘Gun Law’ ring with murderous dread overtones.

“I’m really proud of Man Vs. Sofa – Pinch and I have developed a proper great sound together and this is a real step forward,” affirms Sherwood. A grand step forward from two heavyweight producers, indeed.

Experience Duplication

Listen to Jazz while working through New York? Listen to Reggae while chilling out on the beach?

Sometimes we want to duplicate the experience. We want to match the soundtrack with the environment. But sometimes we want to differentiate the experience so we level out the stimulation. We may listen to Reggae while walking through New York and Jazz when relaxing on the beach.

Music is so powerful it has the ability to add to or subtract from the experience. When we remove the music we’re at the mercy of nature and man-made distractions.
