Whether you consider him genius or madman, 76 yr old Grammy winning, dub reggae inventor is one of the most dynamic characters in music history. Considered by many as the creator of both reggae and dub, he was a mentor to Bob Marley, co-writing and recording some of his greatest work. Check his original recordings of Bob Marley’s “Sun is Shining” or “Kaya” as an example. Constantly pushing boundaries, he has worked with the Beastie Boys, recently recorded an album with rave pioneers, The Orb, and toured the US backed by electronic based dubstep crew Subatomic Sound System, working in samples of his classic Black Ark studio recordings over bass heavy dubstep influenced beats.
