Joe Ariwa son of legendary dub producer Mad Professor meets Alpha Steppa son and nephew of veteran dub duo Alpha & Omega featuring the seminal reggae/dub pioneer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Widely regarded as the most unique and charismatic of all Jamaican record producers, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry aka The Upsetter is one of reggae’s longest serving veterans whose story is inseparable from that of the development of Jamaican popular music. Perry pioneered the development of dub music with his early adoption of effects and remixing to create new instrumental or vocal versions of existing reggae tracks. Undoubtedly one of reggae’s most prolific and influential producers Perry has worked with the likes of Bob Marley and the Wailers, Junior Murvin, The Congos and Max Romeo to name a few. Joe Ariwa’s first touch with music was as a two year old when he plugged a guitar amp into his father’s mixing desk. Being privileged to be the son of a renowned artist/ technician Joe learned most of his skills at the knee of an excellent teacher. Growing up in and around Mad Professor’s infamous Ariwa Studios Joe quickly developed the skills and technical know-how required to engineer, mix and produce forward thinking dub music with a solid roots foundation. Joe has a string of releases under his belt featuring collaborations with legendary reggae artists including Horace Andy, Dennis Bovell, Earl 16, Michael Prophet and of course Mad Professor himself. Growing up in a similar environment to Joe, Steppas label head Alpha Steppa has also been immersed in soundsystem culture from a very young age and now plays an active role in the developing new wave of dub music. This release features two unique vocal and dub cuts from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry produced and mixed by Joe and Alpha – Second generation dub with a rootical foundation. Presented in the brand new black & gold foil printed Steppas house-bag, quality assured with the golden lion stamp of approval.
