    Honoring the Birthday of a TRUE Reggae ICON Lee "Scratch" Perry Creative Genius

    in Music

    Lee "Scratch" Perry CD (born Rainford Hugh Perry, 20 March 1936 in Kendal, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae producer noted for his innovative studio techniques and production values. Perry was one of the pioneers in the development of dub music with his early adoption of effects and remixing to create new instrumental or vocal versions of existing reggae tracks. Perry has worked with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Junior Murvin, the Congos and Max Romeo.Perry broke ranks with Gibbs and formed his own label, Upsetter, in 1968. His first major single "People Funny Boy", which was an insult directed at Gibbs, sold well with 60,000 copies sold in Jamaica alone. It is notable for its innovative use of a sample (a crying baby) as well as a fast, chugging beat that would soon become identifiable as "reggae" (the new kind of sound which was given the name "Steppers"). Similarly his acrimonious 1967 single as Lee "King" Perry Run for Cover was likewise aimed at Sir Coxsone. From 1968 until 1972 he worked with his studio band The Upsetters. During the 1970s, Perry released numerous recordings on a variety of record labels that he controlled, and many of his songs were popular in both Jamaica and the UK. He soon became known for his innovative production techniques as well as his eccentric character. In 1970 Perry produced and released The Wailers track "Mr Brown" (1970) with its unusual use of studio effects and eerie opening highlighting his unique approach to production.

    Holly Stephey & Kristin Hoffmann The Human Compass: New Directions

    in Pop Culture

    A deep, creative, present and soulful/spiritual musician, Kristin Hoffmann strives “to cultivate a space of openness and possibility, through the vehicles of music, sound and vibration, in which inspiration, creativity, love, growth and interconnectedness can be shared and experienced freely by all who choose to tap in.” Hoffmann created The Human Compass as a “musical guide for those who follow their hearts,” and New Directions encourages further exploration of the shadows and light of life.With influences ranging from Johann Sebastian Bach, Imogen Heap, Massive Attack, and Sigur Ros to Annie Lenox, The Human Compass features Hoffmann’s poised, expressive, and powerful music that penetrates the intellectual and spiritual side of the art, “[making] her audience look inward and go to places they would not normally go” (Streetcred Music).  “Although she hardly shies away from real-world concerns, her moody chamber-pop songs tend to be more inward-directed, blending neoromantic piano, terse lyrics and Hoffmann’s nuanced, sometimes delicate, sometimes explosive vocals.Now, Hoffmann takes her sound one step further, remixing three tracks with industrial sound-weaver Troy Stallman (aka Rise of Troy) on The Human Compass: New Directions. Enhancing her mysterious allure and suspenseful emotion with reverberating effects and electronic beats, the new mixes demonstrate the versatility of Hoffmann’s craft and are set for release next year.http://www.kristinhoffmann.com/
