I reckon you could post daily about Adrian Sherwood for a year and not run out of interesting songs. This mix of Acid Tabla by Suns Of Arqa came out in February this year, a dubbed out Sherwood version and will cost you £1 from Bandcamp. Suns Of Arqa have been the vehicle for the pioneering musical adventures of Michael Wadada since 1979, since when he's played with a couple of hundred musicians in the studio and live.
There's also this hour long mix done for Carharrt Radio this month for your delectation, full of music from the back catalogues and unreleased goodies from the likes of Roots Manuva, Dub Syndicate, Congo Natty, Coldcut and Junior Delgado.
