Lee Scratch Perry

Some call him a genius, others claim he’s certifiably insane, a madman. Truth is, he’s both, but more importantly, Lee 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 was 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 experimented with it or took it further than did Lee Perry.

SUBATOMIC SOUND is back with a ground shaking, political scorcher from Jamaica’s massive dancehall reggae star Anthony B on Subatomic Sound System & Nomadic Wax‘ re-upped “NYC-2-Africa” riddim, recorded in Africa, NYC, and Jamaica. In response to the universal anti-corruption message, it was remixed by producers from around the globe, essentially musically translating into the dialect of what’s happening on their streets, resulting in twelve amazing versions we couldn’t have imagined, from cumbia to tropical to all sorts of dubstep twist ups as well as vintage rude boy roots, hip hop, and dancehall reggae.
