The Godfather of Dub and Reggae has returned….
Grammy Winning Reggae Icon Lee 'Scratch' Perry returns with the highly anticipated new LP "REPENTANCE"-- with the sexually charged club anthem "Pum Pum," as the debut single which demonstrates Lee's mastery of all sounds. The album touches on a multitude of genres ranging from hip-hop & dancehall to club ready dance hits.
"Repentance" is considered the best album he has produced in decades, standing alongside the innovative records of the 60s & 70s where Perry placed the DJ in the role of the artist. What Perry created can easily be seen as the prelude to the dance, hip hop and pop music genres which makes it easy to see where artists from Jay Z, Santogold, Hot Chip, M.I.A., to Spank Rock cut their teeth and found their sound. With "Repentance," Perry as truly reclaimed the thrown. He continues to influence the musical landscape of today by redefining every genre of music he touches with his unprecedented vision and production expertise. He remains revered by his peers and seen as one of the most influential artists by many of todays contemporary performers.
Guest artists include electronic maven Moby, seminal producer Don Fleming, bassist Josh Werner of Matisyahu, drummer Brian Chippendale of staccato noise duo Lightning Bolt! and adult entertainer Sasha Grey.
