Record Store Day Exclusive. Epic soundclash on 45 from On-U Sound, just for RSD BLK FRI 2016! An epic showdown between two modern day torchbearers of experimental dub music and the legendary Jamaican musical icon. On-U Sound are proud to present two exclusive new versions of an Adrian Sherwood-produced Lee “Scratch” Perry tune, sent on a far-out version excursion by the brains behind cult “8-bit reggae” label Jahtari. On the A side, Rootah turns out a casio-fried galactic funk Re-rub primed to nice up the dance. Shades of Prince Jammy’s computerised dub ricochet around a brilliantly demented vocal from The Upsetter. A distant descendent of classic Black Ark floor filler “Disco Devil”. On the flip Disrupt spaces things out further into a maze of arcade machine blips and vocoder delay, while a soulful girl group chorus beams down from the cosmos. This is dancehall from saturn, lovers rock made by aliens. Retro jukebox style 7” disco plate housed in a beautifully designed house bag, strictly limited edition for Black Friday Record Store Day.
