Description of Lee Scratch Perry Nu Sound & Version

Rush-released on LP following huge demand for the CD version, 'On-U Sound Presents Lee Scratch Perry Nu Sound And Version' - to give it it's full title - contains reworked, remixed and re-interpretated versions of 12 Adrian Sherwood-produced Lee Perry classics, including one extra bonus mix only available on this double vinyl pressing. Reggae legend Lee 'Scratch' Perry first began working with On-U Sound in the late 1980s. Initially working with Style Scott's Dub Syndicate rhythm section, he then collaborated with Adrian Sherwood on 'Time Boom X De Devil Dead' in 1987 and 'From The Secret Laboratory' in 1990. He would return to the label in 2008 to release 'The Mighty Upsetter' and it's companion-piece 'Dub Setter'. The tracks on this album see Lee Perry receive some of the most radical treatment his work has ever had, as his distinctive vocals bob and weave in the midst of bass, rave riddims and extreme experimentation fashioned from the imaginations of some of today's most cutting-edge, dub-influenced producers. Newly commissioned versions by Bullion, Congo Natty, Dialect & Kosine, and Adrian Sherwood make their exclusive debut appearances here, alongside productions plucked from the sought-after series of limited 12"s by Kode9, Mala of Digital Mystikz, Moody Boyz, Horsepower Productions, and Pempi. All original recordings produced by Adrian Sherwood.

Title:Ironman
Label:On-U Sound
Under secret construction in the On-U workshop for the last few months, Lee Perry's interpretation of the Black Sabbath classic 'Iron Man' is finally ready, complete with heavy boots of lead. With Adrian Sherwood at the controls, and additional input from renowned reggae producer Dennis Bovell, this full-on thumping dub-stepper finds Scratch positioning himself as the "iron man - lion man - lightning man - super man" who "don't drink no booze" while sub-basses throb and wobble the bolts from his joints and the beats hit harder than a rivet gun... surely not what Ted hughes had in mind. The flipside dub mix arrives courtesy of Pempi, who recently broke out with a track on Studio Rockers' 'At The Controls' compilation. Pempi ups the full-of-dread quota with a heavy barrage of drums, stuttering synths and swelling bass, to create a version that has the potential to consume every motor vehicle in the southern hemisphere. Iron Man lives again!
