Lee Scratch Perry Panic In Babylon
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Narnack
While technology has helped spread reggae music globally, there‘s always a downside. For Scratch, the man who invented dub by cutting magnetic tapes in his makeshift Black Ark studio, all this Pro Tooling hinders the warmth and immediacy once synonymous with his name. Admittedly, Panic in Babylon is one of his better efforts in recent decades, but he‘s caught between two worlds: recreating the past he invented and battling the bad boys of dancehall today. Right now he‘s stuck between two hard places with no light in sight.
