Press release :
'Nuh Skin Up' is the final instalment in the triumvirate of Keith Hudson's innovative dub outings that began with 'Pick A Dub', moved on through 'Brand' and culminated in this long overlooked album. A deep, dark and brooding slab of dub that showcases the rhythms of The Soul Syndicate at their most imaginative it was built from mixes taken from Keith's vocal album 'From One Extreme To Another'.
This set represents Keith Hudson at his most enigmatic and standout tracks, such as 'Ire Ire' and 'Troubles', are as good as anything he ever produced. Sparse, spare and hypnotic dub music from a true master:
"Woke up this morning. First thing I saw was the devil..."
Another winner from Pressure Sounds.

French press release :
Keith Hudson est l'une des icônes respectées du reggae. On lui doit notamment le hit international de Big Youth "Ace 90 Skank". Mort il y a plus de 20 ans, cet album "Nuh Skin Up" rend un bel hommage à Keith Hudson.

Pressure Sounds a ici choisi de mettre en scène Keith Hudson au sommet de sa gloire. Mêlant vocals et dubs, cet album est dans la lignée du grand classique de Keith Hudson : "Pick A Dub". Avec "Nuh Skin Up", on s'enfonce dans les profondeurs obscures d'un dub maîtrisé et taillé sur mesure par le backing band qui n'est autre que SOUL SYNDICATE. Le groupe multiplie les innovations musicales en cette période de créativité du milieu des 70's. Les riddims ont été pensés et mixés à partir de l'album vocal de Keith Hudson "From One Extreme to Another". On retrouve ici des hits du chanteur tels que "Ire Ire" qui ouvre l'album ou encore "Troubles". Peter Holdsworth, label manager de Pressure Sounds affirme que ce sont là les meilleures productions de Keith Hudson.
