480. Lee “Scratch” Perry

Another Reggae superstar from Jamaica, Lee “Scratch” Perry has been considered one of the more eccentric figures of the genre. The main contribution of Perry was that of the perpetuation of “Dub”, which was at its roots was a basic remixing of existing songs. Whether he created the genre (some say it was King Tubby) is still somewhat in doubt, but Perry did push its boundaries more than anyone else and his contributions to the world of Reggae is certainly abundant.
