Lee “Scratch” Perry Showcase

The Dub Room presents productions from The Upsetter – artist, producer, writer, innovator, the creative genius of Lee “Scratch” Perry. After years in the music business working with various producers ranging from Clement “Coxsone” Dodd, Prince Buster to Joe Gibbs, he started producing for himself on his Upsetter label. Lee was at the scene from ska, rocksteady to reggae. By 1967 he opened his Upsetter Record shop after success with singles with various artists he was working with including his sides with his band The Upsetters. He was creating a unique sound that Bob Marley sought him out and from that collaboration The Wailers had created their strongest work to date. By 1973 tired of using studios of others to record, Lee build the Black Ark behind his premises at a suburb of Kingston. By 1974 to 1979 this studio was birth of some of the most innovative and dread music to come out of JA. What is remarkable is just with a simple Teac 4-track recorder, a Soundcraft mixing board along with an Echoplex delay unit and other equipment he made created the sounds that other more sophisticated studios could not duplicate or match. No one knows how exactly the techniques he used to produce the magic of his distinctive sound that baffled his competition and continue to amaze generations of music producers. But by 79 fed up with parasites and hangers-on, Lee started to behave erratically and consuming more than the usual white rum & ganja let the studio decline in shape. After falling in decay and despite help to rebuild it in 1983 it was destroyed by fire. Stories say it was an electrical fire that started it to Lee torching it himself. He was detained for three days for suspected arson but was released without sufficient evidence. But either due to undesirable people or gangsters trying to blackmail him for protection or profits, Lee was to claim years later he burnt it to cleanse it of unclean spirits. He eventually relocated to Switzerland got married and started recording again. His latest outings being critically received such as the albums “Rise Again” & “Scratch Came Scratch Saw Scratch Conquered.” His productions during the Black Ark era such as rare singles and unreleased material are still being released and his influence still being felt. This mix includes some of the well known classics such as Max Romeo’s “War In A Babylon” & Junior Murvin’s “Police & Thieves” (who just past away this Dec. 2). Big up to The Upsetter – dis one massive. Seen!
