Lee 'Scratch' Perry Presents Nu Sound & Version and If You Want Loyalty Buy a Dog by Little Axe reviewby Jim Pinckney
Skip McDonald's seventh album is a genuine late-career surprise and a new album of Lee Scratch Perry tracks deserves big-speaker attention.
Making a mockery of the usual mediocre and hasty remix album standard, and completing the loop between today’s bassline jockeys and the dubwise originator, LEE ‘SCRATCH’ PERRY PRESENTS NU SOUND & VERSION is another 30th-anniversary coup for Adrian Sherwood and the On-U Sound label. Kode 9, Digital Mystikz, Moody Boyz and Horsepower Productions all happily show their roots with artful, elegant dubstep renditions, while original junglist Congo Natty and new school beat operator Bullion push the boat out even further on a set that fully does justice to Perry’s inimitable legacy. Deserving of some big-speaker attention.
