Lee 'Scratch' Perry

Fabled dub reggae producer and all-round eccentric Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry has picked some interesting collaborators in the past, not least when he enlisted hard-rockin' party monster Andrew W.K. to produce one of his albums. Celebrating his 80th birthday with a Fuji Rock appearance this summer, the man who pioneered modern studio sonics, invented slash-and-fade mixing and kick-started Marley's Wailers will also be stopping by Liquidroom for this sun-splashed bash. In a nod to the Kingston studio where most of his ganja-fuelled innovation happened in the '70s, Perry himself will be performing a 'Best of Black Ark' set with his band, while the mixing is taken care of by local big shot Naoyuki Uchida. Make sure to also check out the 'Reggae Market' and the Perry-themed photo exhibit, not to mention the Jamaican grub on offer.
