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 legendary 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 it remains an essential reggae classic 40 years later. Perry will celebrate his 80th year on earth and the anniversary of this landmark album in 2016 by performing it live for the very first time while on tour with NYC's Subatomic Sound System.
