“A night of dub & heavy bass riddims with Lee Scratch Perry’s live band featuring musicians, singers, DJs, and more”
Spearheaded by producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Emch, NYC’s Subatomic Sound System is leading a mission to re-establish the bass heavy, spacious soundscapes, and live improvisational remixing of traditional Jamaican dub music at the forefront of today’s independent, producer-fueled, beat and bass driven electronic music. Subatomic has tours globally as DJ, dub soundsystem, or live band, working for over 8 years as the go to band for Grammy winning reggae legend Lee “Scratch” Perry to reincarnate the Black Ark studio sound live on stage. Subatomic Sound System recently topped both reggae and electronic charts with their “Super Ape Returns To Conquer” album, a 21st century reimagining of Perry’s visionary 1976 album ( http://bit.ly/SS033s ). The new album breaks ground of its own as Subatomic uses technology to create an unprecedented level of dynamic improvisation between live performers, computers, and studio manipulation, exploding traditional concepts of what is a live performance versus a studio recording. Other releases with dancehall artists like Anthony B, Elephant Man, and Jahdan Blakkamoore have further defined the wide reach of the Subatomic Sound dub style as well as unlikely collaborations and remixes with filmmaker David Lynch, punk pioneer Ari Up of The Slits, a variety of electro cumbia producers, and more. The Subatomic live show has toured the world as an innovative combination of electronics and live instruments which recently inspired a viral documentary by Great Big Story.
