Lee Perry’s “Blackboard Jungle”: From Dub to Dubstep


Obviously the root sound of dubstep is um, dub, but this video documents legend Lee "Scratch" Perry's transition into making actual dubstep and does a good job of showing how the genres/cultures inform each other without explicitly saying so... at least until the end when it promos Perry's new track with FADER fave Jahdan Blakkamoore and Subatomic Soundsystem. Worth watching for great footage of Jahdan performing at Terminal 5 with Major Lazer, a brief interview with Rusko on the topic, and a very, very serious Jamaican gyal narrating. (via Dutty Artz)
