Artist & Event Info

It would be impossible to write a history of reggae music without featuring legendary record producer The Upsetter: Lee Scratch Perry.

Forming Upsetter Records in 1968, Lee latched on to the rebel vibe and mixed it with the spaghetti western cinema imports to create a strong rebel aesthetic. With tracks such as “Return of Django” and “Tighten Up” by The Untouchables being listened by generations of UK youth movements from mods to punks.

Lee has an immersive and obsessive production style and his evolution of dub music have lead comparisons with Joe Meek, Phil Spector and Brian Wilson. Which is why even today he’s pushing sonic boundaries both in his own album Jamaican ET and collaborations with The Orb and Adrian Sherwood.

We’re honoured to have one of the true legends of dub play Village Underground.
