African Head Charge 'Off The Beaten Track' LP
Originally released in 1986, Off The Beaten Track still sounds forward thinking, forging a new middle ground between dub and electronic music.
Programmed chants and unexpected sounds (barking dogs, breaking glass, gypsy violin loops) are dropped onto a fluid rhythmic bed. A landmark recording in the integration of sampling technology and live instrumentation.
Features contributions from Jah Wobble (Public Image Limited), Skip McDonald (Sugarhill Gang/Tackhead) and Albert Einstein (the theory of relativity)!
Re-cut at dubplates & mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure.
Includes printed inner with sleevenotes by Steve Barker (On The Wire), and download card for full album.
