“We’ve at last fulfilled a double fantasy to work with our two favourite sonic assassins, Dennis Bovell and Hank Shocklee,” the band’s Mark Stewart tells Consequence of Sound. “We’re in awe as Dennis, the Captain Kirk of dub is taking us on a hyper sound voyage into the future, and Hank, as always tears up the rules totally upholding our faith in the absolute value of noise. We’ve gone completely off the map.”

Setting the tone in fine style, the 12″ mix of ‘Hypnotized’ (originally released on Mute in 1985) is the first track on Adrian Sherwood’s new compilation, Sherwood At The Controls Volume 2, a follow up to the first edition which featured the flexi disc mix of the title track from Mark Stewart & The Maffia’s ‘Learning To Cope With Cowardice’ record (originally released by On U Sound in 1983)
