41 years after Lee "Scratch" Perry defined dub music with his seminal 1976 Super Ape album, he returns with NYC's Subatomic Sound System to conquer again, definitively reincarnating the magic of his Black Ark studio in Jamaica, heavy on Ethiopian horns & percussion, while reinvigorating it with the 21st century booming bass & beats that capture the energy of their innovative live electronic show.

Lee "Scratch" Perry re-makes his own classic album 40 years later? It sounds crazy but after his hugely successful tour for the 40th anniversary of his seminal 1976 dub album Super Ape produced at his famed Black Ark home studio, Grammy winning Jamaican artist Lee "Scratch" Perry rebuilt the entire album with NYC's Subatomic Sound System proving not only that he was 40 years ahead of his time but that at 81 years old, he continues to innovate and push the envelope of reggae and dub, genres he pioneered in the 60s and 70s. Largely known as the mentor to Bob Marley, shaping his vocal style and philosophy, while producing and co-writing Marley's early classics like "Sun Is Shining", "Kaya" and many more, Perry's influence has transcended reggae
