When DJ Waves said she wanted to make a chilled out reggae mix for Volume #27 of SOUND⚡WAVES we had no idea that just a few days later the music world would be rocked by the news of Lee 'Scratch" Perry's death. The monumental reggae singer, producer and studio wizard pushed the boundaries of Jamaican music — and as a byproduct, rock, hip-hop and dance — into new musical horizons.
But this is in no way a Lee Perry playlist. In fact, there's only two tracks from him in the mix (though his fingerprints can be felt on plenty of other tracks). Instead, it's more of a broad look at reggae and dub music in general — from Sister Nancy all the way to Snow.
Featuring Lee "Scratch" Perry, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Toots & The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Carol Cool, Snow, King Tubby, Marcia Aitken, Shaggy, Budgie and more.
