WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Some call him a genius, others claim he's certifiably insane, a madman. Truth is, he's both, but more importantly, Lee "Scratch" Perry is a towering figure in reggae - a producer, mixer, and songwriter who, along with King Tubby, helped shape the sound of dub and made reggae music such a powerful part of the pop music world. Along with producing some of the most influential acts (Bob Marley & the Wailers and the Congos, to name but two) in reggae history, Perry's approach to production and dub mixing is breathtakingly innovative and audacious - no one else sounds like him - and while many claim that King Tubby invented dub, there are just as many who would argue that no one has experimented with it or has taken it further than Lee Perry.
