London producer Adrian Sherwood and Bristol's Rob Ellis aka Pinch return for round two with the dark echo dek of Man Vs. Sofa. A year on from 2015’s Late Night Endless, the album sees the duo successfully merge their respective labels’ aesthetics once again – the multidimensional dub of Sherwoods’s On-U Sound dovetails with the drum excellence of Pinch’s Tectonic, with several guests inflicting their own flair on the production.

‘Lies’ sees the delay and reverb-processed voice of Jamaican dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry bridge this inimitable release with its 1960s roots, whereas Primal Scream’s Martin Duffy, Def Jam’s Taz and Skip McDonald from The Sugarhill Gang account for a wider scope of associated genres. The result is a diverse full-length, juxtaposing squeaking and gnarling synth experiments (‘Unlearn’) with agitated grime (‘Gun Law’) and the eeriness of dissonance combined with hard-hitting percussion (‘Roll Call’) – showing the duo at their most mutable to date.
