Greentea Peng, the self-described ‘psychedelic RnB’ singer from South London collaborates the late, great Lee Scratch Perry on the ‘100lbs Summer’ single. Taken from the forthcoming album King Perry, the single comes with a remix from Tricky, who co-produced two of the album tracks and who released Perry’s last recorded performances on his False Idols label.
Record producer, composer, singer, and pioneer of the dub music genre Lee Scratch Perry passed away in August 2021. His influence over popular music since the 1970s is hugely significant, with artists including Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Clash, Beastie Boys, Max Romeo, Junior Murvin and The Orb all enriched by Perry’s legendary touch, innovative studio techniques and production style.
Conceived, written and recorded during the COVID pandemic, ‘King Perry’ was produced by Daniel Boyle, and features guest performances from Greentea Peng, Shaun Ryder, Tricky, Marta, Rose Waite and Fifi Rong. Two tracks were also co-produced with Tricky, who releases Perry’s last recorded performances on his False Idols label.
