Steel Yard presents a celebration of the legendary reggae artist Lee “Scratch” Perry’s new album


July 1976 Lee “Scratch” Perry alongside his band The Upsetters released an album that changed Dub music forever. The Super Ape is still revered as one of the greatest dub albums of all time

Sept. 2017 Lee “Scratch” Perry alongside his current band Subatomic Sound System release Super Ape Returns to Conquer. Together, they have updated and reworked all the tracks from the original record into the modern dub landscape of 2017


For the last session of the summer at our warehouse home we welcome

Subatomic Sound System to Cleveland for a LIVE dubbing of the new Super Ape Returns to Conquer album

Subatomic Sound System has toured throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2008, Emch was recruited by Vienna’s top ranking live dub band, Dubblestandart, to play guitar and melodica on tour worldwide with Grammy winning reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry, playing for capacity crowd shows from New York’s Central Park to Europe largest reggae festival, One Love in Poland. As the Subatomic Sound record label head, Emch has produced and released dub reggae innovator Lee Scratch Perry’s first dubstep tracks plus eclectic collaborations with icons like filmmaker David Lynch, Prince Far-i, & UK punk pioneer Ari Up of the Slits as well as new school torchbearers like Anthony B, Elephant Man, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Dubblestandart, & his own group Subatomic Sound System.

Doctah X – Columbus

Having released an album on Subatomic Soundsystem’s record label and performed previous year’s Dub Champions Festival alongside Lee Perry, Columbus’s own Tony “Doctah X” Harrington was a no brainer to have on this bill. Doctah X brings a high energy multi instrumental live dubbing performance that takes crowds through a dub soundscape that is firmly rooted in Jamaican Reggae, and ventures deep into the realm of Dub and modern bass music.

+More TBA

For the last warehouse session of the year we are opening an unseen portion of the warehouse and will have the rooftop patio open for those chill late night outdoor vibes!
