Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System “Black Ark Vampires” limited edition vinyl 45 debuted Nov. 4. 2014 on Juno Records, #1 in dub, #1 in reggae, and broke the top #100 in all music before selling out on the site (more copies on the way).  It premiered for Halloween on Brooklyn based Jamaican culture site Large Up  and received an overwhelming response.  Buy it directly from Crosstalk Distribution (US), Juno Records (UK) (who ship worldwide), Jetset (Japan) and many other fine record stores around the globe.

On “Black Ark Vampires”, Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System have crafted a throbbing sound-man tune propelled by subsonic bass, bubbling skanks, and pulsing beats that balance the murky and mystical vibes of Perry’s classic Jamaican dub reggae recordings with the flammable energy and subsonic vibrations of current electronic bass music, fine tuning a recipe that they have slow cooked throughout their last four years of U.S. tours spreading authentic dub to a new generation in places like Coachella, Dub Champions Festival, and Red Bull Music Academy.
