Lee “Scratch” Perry's inimitable sound gets a contemporary makeover with remixes from some of the foremost innovators in the world of bass, dubstep and soundsystem culture. Highlights come from Digital Mystikz reordering “Like The Way You Should” into a gentle yet haunting slow-burner, Kode 9's version of “Yellow Tongue” and it's pure roots dub feel and Moody Boyz' bass heavy cover of “International Broadcaster”. - On-U Sound

“As part of the label’s thirtieth anniversary, On-U Sound presents eleven Lee Perry tracks remixed and re-imagined by contemporary artists. It is striking how fresh the tracks feel, successfully bridging gaps between 1987 and 2011 and reawakening reggae culture for ‘modern’ clubbers. ‘Spongy Rubber…’ gets lip-curling junglist treatment from Dialect And Kosine, and Digital Mystikz infuse ‘Obeah Room’ with a dark see-saw of noises, using the abstract nature of non-contextual lyrics to create dubbed-out elec-tronics.

Congo Natty, Horsepower Productions, Kode 9, the Moody Boyz and more help demonstrate how relevant dub is, by the very people who roots as a building block for modern styles.” - Clash Magazine
