From his early days in Kingston Jamaica through to his production of some Wailers classics and lots more Perry’s innovative style marks him out as one of Reggaes true originals. He’s worked with everyone form The Skatalites to The Clash and he can even be credited with pairing Peter Tosh with Bob Marley and The Wailers.
Sometimes credited with the invention of DUB his groundbreaking use of sound effects, echo reverb and rewind added a new dimension to Reggae.
