"Lee Perry's 'Blackboard Jungle: From Dub to Dubstep'" mini documentary
featuring Lee Scratch Perry, Subatomic Sound System, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Dubblestandart (plus interview footage with Rusko and live clips of Jahdan with Major Lazer)
1973, Jamaica. 2009, to the world! The story of the seminal dub album "Blackboard Jungle" from Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby that was cornerstone of the dub music craze that would extend around the world. In 2009 Vienna's dub masters Dubblestandart called on Perry to revisit the vibes. This collaboration stretched around the globe to involve New York City's dub scientists Subatomic Sound System & rising reggae vocal talent Jahdan Blakkamoore (of Major Lazer "Cash Flow" fame), and resulted in the first ever original dubstep tunes from Lee Scratch Perry plus a journey back into the Blackboard Jungle!
