SUPER APE RETURNS TO CONQUER REVIEWED
At 81, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry returns with Super Ape Returns to Conquer. If you can handle abstract funk, this will be for you. Otherwise, there’s so much experimental jamming going on that it might overwhelm you. It’s neat to see where Dub began, but I can also spot all of the source changes on the album. Such is the life of an underground jam, but I can see fans enjoying the hell out of it. Check it out.
RELEASE DATE: 9/22/17
The Plot Thus Far
Forty-one years after Lee “Scratch” Perry defined dub music with his seminal 1976 Super Ape album, he returns with NYC’s Subatomic Sound System to conquer again, reincarnating the magic of his Black Ark studio in Jamaica, heavy on Ethiopian horns and percussion, while reinvigorating it with the 21st century booming bass and beats that capture the energy of their innovative live electronic show.
