der wahnsinn hat methode: neuinterpretation der dub-blaupause -super ape-.
nachdem er sich mit sir coxsone, dem legendären chef des kingstoner labels studio one, zerstritten hatte, gründete lee perry zuerst seine eigene band und dann, 1973, im hinterhof ein eigenes studio. was aus der not geboren wurde, entwickelte sich zu einer einzigartigen erfolgsgeschichte. sowohl mit den upsetters als auch dem black ark schrieb perry musikgeschichte, insbesondere durch das 1976 veröffentlichte -super ape--album, auf dem er gewissermaßen das genre dub auf unbekannte weise aus dem mischpult brodeln ließ. für perry ist das studio wie ein lebewesen. ob er es wirklich so empfindet, oder einfach nur zu viel ganja in rauch aufgehen lässt, aber bei perry ist das equipment organisch, empathisch und intelligent. der clou: so hören sich die resultate auch an! lange bevor man das sampling erfunden hatte, schichtete er tonspuren aus tiefen bässen, echos und hall mit diversen, selbst aufgenommenen, gerne rückwärts laufenden klangsequenzen auf-, in- und übereinander. heißt: perry war der erste produzent, der anstatt der band die musik machte. das brachte ihm unter anderem den titel salvador dalí des dub ein. dass der Über-80-jährige bis heute nichts von seiner experimentierfreude verloren hat, zeigt der mit dem new yorker subatomic sound system besorgte re-edit seines meilensteins.
this 3 track ep from the legendary lee perry brings together new and unreleased tracks recorded at mad professor s ariwa studio in south london. the ep kicks of with this is the upsetter, which sees lee chanting and philosophising over a rollicking bass, underpinned by understated guitar and perfectly placed hats, and continues to the straight up dub, lion share dub . and on the flipside is the title track, game of the throne , with brass section and backing vocals belting out soul fire, with lee offering his words to selassie. mastered by the legendary noel summerville, artwork by henry dubroot alderson and g.s-l studio.
few artists enjoy a legacy that involves a re-engineering of the very genre in which they work. lee “scratch” perry is such an artist. as a pioneer of dub reggae perry viewed the mixing console as musical instrument in its own right. the influence of his revolutionary approach has been felt world-wide and into genres far beyond reggae. his 1976 effort, super ape, is considered a masterpiece of this or any genre. working with the upstetters at his black ark studio perry created a sound with such a lasting appeal that the rough guide includes super ape as one of their 100 essential reggae releases. this limited edition reissue contains a 22x22 inch super ape poster.
deadbeats dub credentials are by this point are as solid as they come, and being asked to remix 2 of the genres heaviest hitters, not once, but twice is just about the greatest complement anyone in said position could ever hope to receive.
hinter 2the orbserver in the star house2 verbirgt sich eine kollaboration, mit der niemand gerechnet hätte, die aber zweifellos sinn macht. immerhin haben the orb und lee scratch perry mit ihren experimentierfreudigen veröffentlichungen mehr als einmal den gelungen versuch unternommen, mit bass und hall im gepäck die sphärischen tiefen und weiten des alles umgebenden soundkosmos zu erkunden. während für die dub inspirierten abenteuer von the orb ambient und techno pate standen, bezog sich lee scratch perry stets auf reggae in allen schattierungen. dass sich diese ansätze wunderbar miteinander verknüpfen lassen, stellt 2the orbserver in the star house2 unnachahmlich unter beweis. für dessen produktion schufen orb-mastermind alex paterson und floating member thomas fehlmann in dessen berliner studio in bewährter frickelarbeit eine warme, zurückgenommene geräuschkulisse, in die lee scratch perry seine knarzige, nicht imitierbare stimme perfekt einbrachte. für dub-aficionados essentiell!

originally released in 1980, this album is the final work to emerge from the blackark studio, before its permanent destruction. it concludes a series of such lpmasterworks as super ape, war in a babylon, police and thieves, and the return of the super ape. enthrallingly, it crosses the soundworld of roast fishcollie weed and cornbread with new hybrids -- like the irresistible elevenminute opener, rolling and delirious, a kind of reggae prophesy of marvin gaye s sexual healing, but musically richer, and more glazed, randy and visionary.
lee perry aka scratch, the upsetter, the super ape, pipecock jackson and on genius, madman, visionary, lunatic, shaman? probably guilty of all as charged. rise again the title should speak for itself. a clear and direct collaborative projection that transforms pop music production into an art form all of its own. like an ageless tribe of lazarus, lee scratch perry just keeps coming back. this time out, the upsetter celebrates his 75th year on planet earth with the release of rise again - a crucial set of eleven all-new songs, mixed and produced by bill laswell and featuring vocals by tv on the radios tunde adebimpe, ethiopian chanteuse gigi shibabaw and jamaican toaster hawk(man). rise again is not just another echo-drenched, bass-heavy, psychedelic dub release, that perry helped invent back in the early 70s, but this record goes deeper into the rasta mysticism (and you thought it was just about smoking herb) that provides the key to understanding scratchs trip.

one of the most accomplished and celebrated bands in the field of contemporary, unclassified pop music. almamegretta are masters in combining a wide range of elements such as dub, funk, reggae, world and electronica, all filtered through their own deep southern italian roots. now let’s discover the dub version of ennenne. dub is a unique discipline. a strange and sometimes unpredictable music practice. it was just after the release of ennenne that we decided to take back the multi track recordings and start to rework the music through the mixer. in order to give a new shape to the project, we thought it was a good idea to invite some of the best producers and musicians on the dub scene. following a very natural process, our vision began to take the shape of an international all star event, including contributions from historical dub artists such as adrian sherwood, lee scratch perry, dennis bovell, and actual celebrities of today such as gaudi, vibronics, manasseh, khalab & messmorize, and mario conte one the most interesting producers on the italian experimental scene. a bunch of old and new friends with whom we share the same vision.
