Horace Andy – Midnight Scorchers

On-U Sound are proud to announce Midnight Scorchers by Horace Andy, a sequel to the hugely successful Midnight Rocker album, out 16th September 2022. This is the ‘sound system’ take on the original sessions, featuring brand new tracks; radical dancehall re-works with guest toasters; and stripped back instrumental version excursions in deep dub reggae style. 

Midnight Scorchers sees legendary Jamaican vocalist Horace Andy once again link up with Adrian Sherwood. When speaking about the project Horace himself comments “Midnight Scorchers is really nice, it’s different to Midnight Rocker and more of a dub album. I’ll be sitting at home listening and full joying it on my Speaker Box dem!’”

Producer Adrian Sherwood adds: “I’m very happy with the way ‘Scorchers’ has turned out; for me, it’s the perfect accompaniment to Midnight Rocker. It’s not just a dub album – the new mixes, and the new tracks take it out to the sound system arena.”

 

In the same way as the music has been re-imagined, so has the artwork, with award-winning animator Ruff Mercy putting a street style graffiti spin on things, also in evidence in his psychedelic and colourful video for first single “Feverish”, a massive new version of one of Horace Andy’s Studio One era classics.

“What a project to be asked to work on. The music feels so colourful and vivid. A pulsating, swirling ball of colour. I wanted to represent that in the visuals. When you hear it you’ll see what I mean.” Ruff Mercy

 

 

On-U Sound are also pleased to offer Midnight Rocker on limited edition Gold Vinyl. This is a limited one off pressing so please act fast to avoid disappointment. Midnight Rocker is also available on Black Vinyl & CD.

“This is not only Horace Andy’s best album in 40 years, but it’s also a work of lasting power”
