The New Age Steppers – Self Titled
Virgin, Statik, On-U Sound 1981

Let’s do some more phat back dub reggae related 80’s stuff
from Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound label. This is the first
album with the New Age Steppers. It opens with the 1975,
Junior Byles hit ‘Fade Away’ in a complete different outfit.
Sherwoods incredible and freaky effects take us on a journey
beyond the imaginable, I simply love it. I am quite sure I had
posted this album in 2014 but somehow it disappeared on us.
Early On-U Sound work from 1981, not to be missed ..

Laten we nog eens zo’n dikke dub reggae gerelateerde 80er
jaren plaat doen van Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound label.
Dit is de eerste New Age Steppers. Hij opent met de 1975
klassieker ‘Fade Away’ van Junior Byles in een compleet
nieuw jasje. Sherwood’s ongelooflijk woeste dub effecten
nemen ons mee op een reis voorbij het voorstelbare, ik
ben er simpelweg dol op. Vrij zeker weet ik dat deze plaat
al in 2014 gepost was, hij bleek echter verdwenen. Vroeg
On-U Sound werk dat niet gemist mag worden ..
