Innovator, genius and trendsetter there are few individuals quite as unique as Lee Scratch Perry, aka The Upsetter. He has become a legend in his own lifetime and earned himself an army of admirers stretching across every continent. Musically, his CV is beyond compare in the worlds of reggae and dub, having helped create and define both since he first immersed himself in the 1950s Jamaican music world. Perry is a maverick who helped create todayâ€™s musical landscape by pushing himself, and the recording studio, to the point of destruction.
Kiss Me Neck is an extensive, detailed and heavily illustrated, guide to the records produced by Perry and those that hailed from his legendary Black Ark Studio. With over one thousand releases to his name, there is a wealth of material here - Kiss Me Neck serves both as a guide for the experienced fan and an introduction for the beginner. We anticipate great appeal amongst, and have already received orders from, the Jamaican music collecting communities, as well as Mods, Skinheads, Rude Boys and so on throughout the world. Good coverage in the relevant press is guaranteed.
Jeremy Collingwood has, for the past decade, been documenting the music of Jamaica on CD and in books for many major labels and publishers. He has produced six packages of Perryâ€™s work, including the box set, I Am The Upsetter for Trojan Records, and is also one of the world s leading authorities on Bob Marley - he recently had his acclaimed book Bob Marley: His Musical Legacy published and has acted as consultant on the film Rebel Music , as well as recent BBC Radio 2 documentaries on Bob Marley and Lee Perry. There really could be no better guide to Scratchâ€™s archive.
The Distant Relatives Sampler LP is due for release in June, to pre-order please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What we're about to do right now is go back. Back to a time when rap's greatest hits were created in basement soundrooms, not corporate boardrooms. When dancehall and hip-hop music was all about moving the crowd not "moving units." Before Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and Nasty Nasir Jones first began treading the long and winding "Road to Zion." The artists' first collaboration went so well that they decided to do a full album together, and that album is Distant Relatives!
Unlike all previous collaborations between Jamaican and American artists, Distant Relatives is neither a remix nor a featured guest spot on a single track. The recording is a fully collaborative effort filling an entire album, opening new avenues of musical expression.
The album created by two serious artists to explore and celebrate the correlations and deep-rooted connections between reggae and hip-hop, tracing both sounds back to the African motherland that is both the cradle of humanity and the wellspring of mankind's music. And who better to fulfill this mission? The youngest son of the legendary Bob Marley, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, and all time legend of Hip-Hop - Nas Jones.
An alternative version of Rhombus Live Band, Rhombus in Dub sees key band members Thomas, Simon and Koa performing on a mixture of MPC, live dubbing, laptop performance and turntables/cd-j â€“ essentially recreating the Rhombus production studio live on stage!
Touring to support their new sampler CD Rhombus in Dub: Volume 1 (featuring collaborations with Optimus Gryme, Rodney P (UK) and more), Rhombus in Dub will be performing material from the sampler, unreleased originals/remixes as well as classics from their back catalogue â€“ all mashed up live â€“Â Rhombus in Dub style!
Rhombus has been performing in the Rhombus in Dub format since late 2008.. During this period of time they have performed nationwide, and made appearances in Australia and Japan â€“ often to sold-out crowds!
Auckland based producer Dub Terminator will be playing support.
The party awaits; people are you ready?
"Heavy beats and dope collaborations. More of the same please" â€“ Dylan C (Base FM) on Rhombus in Dub: Volume 1
