On-U Sound In The Area

Thanks & Praises: Credits

While the presentation and formatting of this website is my own work, much of the information presented in it is the result of many many people's efforts and contributions over probably more than 20 years.

This site is the most recent re-incarnation of a project started by Culf and Richard Davies in the late 1980s to catalogue On-U related product in a series of discographies (once available on the internet) with information from their own record collections and their network of personal contacts of the face to face, postal or email variety. In particular the On-U Sound electronic mailing list is probably the source of hundreds of bits of information that appear here.

Unfortunately then, crediting everyone who has been involved is an impossible task and any list is going to be unfortunately incomplete. Presented here are the names of people who have directly contributed information to this site and many of the major contributors to Culf and Richard Davies' preceding discographies. If you've contributed and feel you should be listed here then please contact me.

[ First Mentions ]

Culf - Glasgow, UK The man who played me On-U tunes many years ago when we were at university together (before I'd heard of Adrian Sherwood) and who set off my interest in On-U Sound! Much of my inspiration for this site came from his original series of internet discographies (the 'Home Game', 'Away Game', 'Charity Match' etc). Without them, this site wouldn't be half so informative. It is with his spoken permission that I have reproduced much of his hard work. Thanks are also due for his own comments about this site, for letting me scour his record collection in search of missing information for the discography section and for allowing me to borrow much of his On-U paperwork archive.
Richard Davies - Birmingham, UK For much of the fine detail and cross referencing that featured in Culf's discographies. Richard's On-U knowledge and record collection helped turn those discographies from simple lists of releases to interlinked and comprehensive information resources. He also compiled the first version of the Rhythm Directory that both Culf and I have since extended in the spirit of his original. Nowadays he is a regular contributor to this website.
On.U Sound email list The numerous world-wide subscribers of the On-U Sound electronic mailing list run by Ben Golding in Australia who, since 1989, have provided many snippets of information that I am unable to give credit for individually.
eBay sellers on the WWW For unknowingly providing me with hundreds of bits of information that have ended-up in the discographies, simply through listing their goods for sale online.
Steve Barker - 'On The Wire': BBC Radio Lancashire, UK For his extensive help and knowledge in the creation of Culf's discographies, and for this support of On-U Sound over many years by playing and promoting Sherwood's productions on the radio. Steve also produced among the very first published On-U Sound discographies and has since provided me with useful feedback on this site.
Kishi Yamamoto - On.U HQ For compiling the VERY first On-U Sound discography, from which all others are derived.
Adrian Sherwood - On.U HQ The inspiration behind it all and the reason for it all. For over 30 years of ear-bending music, we thank you and all the singers and players you have worked with.
