Lee "Scratch" Perry - The Upsetter Meets Jahtari In The Secret Laboratory 7-Inch

On-U Sound

Available Friday, Nov 25th for Black Friday Record Store Day.  Items not sold in store will go on sale online Sat, Nov 26th.

 

An epic showdown between two modern day torchbearers of experimental dub music and the legendary Jamaican musical icon. On-U Sound are proud to present two exclusive new versions of an Adrian Sherwood-produced Lee “Scratch” Perry tune, sent on a far-out version excursion by the brains behind cult “8-bit reggae” label Jahtari. On the A side, Rootah turns out a casio-fried galactic funk Re-rub primed to nice up the dance. Shades of Prince Jammy’s computerised dub ricochet around a brilliantly demented vocal from The Upsetter. A distant descendent of classic Black Ark floorfiller “Disco Devil”. On the flip Disrupt spaces things out further into a maze of arcade machine blips and vocoder delay, while a soulful girl group chorus beams down from the cosmos. This is dancehall from saturn, lovers rock made by aliens. Another Pipecock Jackson premonition, another 2026 On-U Sound creation. Retro jukebox style 7” disco plate housed in a beautifully designed house bag, strictly limited edition for Black Friday Record Store Day.
