Today we celebrate the 84th birthday of Lee "Scratch" Perry, the pioneer in the 1970's development of dub music. Lee worked together with artists such as Bob Marley and the Wailers, The Clash and The Beastie Boys. Nowadays he's still performing and recording music. Stay strong Perry!

LEE ‘SCRATCH’ PERRY - JAMAICAN E.T.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry's return to his most spaced-out work, that marks his 2002 comeback album Jamaican E.T. The extra-terrestrial is back with some groovy reggae which creates a bridge between dub, roots and hip hop. But in the end, it never ventures too far away from the traditional reggae.
