Utilizing famous bits of equipment such as the Mu-Tron Bi-Phase, the Space echo & various Fisher & Grampian reverbs, Lee has re-created his original signal chain to produce 15 tracks of original deep roots music.

featuring a whole host of well known reggae players, with Lee's vocals on top, These tracks have been produced as close to the original black ark style as possible, with vintage equipment - Mics, compressors & effects & raw recording techniques. A lot of tape saturation, live instruments, horns, guitar, bass etc; all recorded live & blended together by Lee on a big analogue mixing desk. Now for the exciting bit!..... For the fist time in many many years, the founder of Dub himself has been actively involved in producing fresh, brand new Dubs of each song to be included on the album, poignantly titled - Lee 'Scratch' Perry - 'back on the Controls'.
