You often indicates an album of "The Scientist" as favorite music. We about Lee Scratch Perry (Black Ark Studio) ?
I became aware of Lee Perry through On-U-Sound in the early 90s so he'll always be associated with that period with me.
I do like his earlier records but they tend to be a bit rough and ready on the audio front.
Scientist records always sound utterly perfect.
Line up one track each by Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry, Prince Far-I. Listen to them carefully, enjoy them.
Then put on ANYTHING by Scientist and marvel at the effortless way in which he kicks everybody's arse.
Pristine, technically perfect and with a poetry in the arrangements. The way he weaves the elements together and creates a unique performance with every mix - it really is very graceful and lyrical.
I'd settle for half his talent.
Hi, although you don't make "dance" music, what are your feelings on the acid house / rave scene of the late 80s & early 90s and the cultural impact it made? And any personal influence it had on you.Ott responded on 03/13/2012 Next question
