" Lee "Scratch" Perry (born Rainford Hugh Perry March 20, 1936) is one of the most influential people in the development of reggae and dub music in Jamaica. As a songwriter, a performer and producer, “The Mighty Upsetter” has been at the forefront of reggae music since the late 50's ska movement.

Practically the inventor of the “scratch” turntable effect used by DJ’s, Perry’s studio innovations have influenced not only reggae but also rock, punk, pop and dance music. Yet, at 71 years old, Perry's album ‘Panic in Babylon’, recently released on Narnack Records with a bonus disc of remixes by TV on the Radio and DJ Spooky, proves to be more relevant than ever."
