Live at Primavera Sound 2010
Recorded at Primavera Sound in Barcelona Spain
The iconoclastic riddim maverick and mighty upsetter live on stage at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound. Step to this!
Much has been written about this iconoclastic riddim maverick, whose career has been as colorful and varied as Perry’s wardrobe. Initially causing widespread chaos at _(artist-name)Coxsone Dodd_’s sound, and then _(artist-name)Joe Gibbs_’ sound through the 60s, _(artist-name)Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry_ found his feet with his label Upsetter and set about delivering a defining reggae template to the world. In the 70s Perry explored his own production vision even further with his Black Ark studio, and alongside other producers like _(artist-name)King Tubby_, Keith Hudson, and Errol Thompson, pioneered a new dub sound. Little could Perry have predicted the impact his limited 300 pressing _(album-title)Blackboard Jungle Dub_ LP would have, going on to inspire practically every strain of musical variation since, from hip hop to jungle, dubstep to techno, post-punk to house. Perry’s legacy just gets bigger and bigger, and even now in his seventies, he is still recording and touring, recently teaming up again with _(artist-name)Adrian Sherwood_ for _(album-title)The Mighty Upsetter_ LP.
