In 2016, On-U Sound unveiled part one of their reissue campaign focusing on the crucial early years of African Head Charge, the long-running collaboration between master percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah and maverick UK dub producer Adrian Sherwood.

This new series picks up the story in 1990 with the album that is widely regarded as their masterpiece, 'Songs Of Praise'. It’s been expanded to a double album with a whole raft of bonus tracks, as has 1993’s In 'Pursuit Of Shashamane Land'. 2005’s 'Vision Of A Psychedelic Africa' and 2011’s 'Voodoo Of The Godesen't are pressed to vinyl for the first time, both as double LP sets, and as a companion piece to the 'Return Of The Crocodile' LP of early rarities, 'Churchical Chant Of The Iyabinghi' compiles alternate mixes and dubs from 1990 -1993. All of the contents from the vinyl reissues are also anthologised in the 5CD and 36 page book boxset, 'Drumming Is A Language', the companion set to the acclaimed 'Environmental Holes & Drastic Tracks 1981 - 86'.
