Recently and suddenly gone is the semi-legendary Dub Syndicate mainforce & long-time On-U Collaborator Style Scott. October 11th the news reached me that these gentle percussive force which actually played on 41 releases I own and 27 I want (according to discogs stats) among countless others died.
Lincoln “Style” Scott 1955 – 2014 by Freak Ass E on Mixcloud
Style Scott was maybe best know for playing with The Dub Syndicate but he was also an integral part of nearly all early On-U Bands and projects i.e. Creation Rebel, Singers & Players, New Age Steppers and Playgroup and worked with nearly everyone centred around Adrian Sherwood’s Label one way or another in a supportive and non-egocentric way which shows due to the only Album actually featuring his name upfront is a collaborative one with Bill Laswell from 1997. Needless to say I gave it another spin while realizing what a untimely loss his death means.
