Lee Scratch Perry (official) meets Mad Professor @ Subsonic Music Festival 2016 - Official
We must start with the bright and beautiful artist that has been crea...ting and performing for over five decades, Lee Scratch Perry. The widely acknowledged father of dub reggae became arguably the first creatively driven, "artist-producer" in modern recorded music. We are over the moon to welcome a disciple and long-time collaborator of Lee Scratch Perry, Mad Professor who is one of the leading producers in dub reggae’s second generation.
