SUBATOMIC SOUND SYSTEM was Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Brooklyn based touring band, frequent collaborators, and producers of the acclaimed 2017 album “Super Ape Returns to Conquer” which reimagined Scratch’s 1973 classic “Super Ape”, mixing the vintage Jamaican dub sound with 21st century bass and beats. Scratch & Subatomic & Screechy’s versions of “Chase the Devil” & “Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is the Dub Organizer” have become some of Scratch’s biggest songs of this century. They recently performed Lee “Scratch” Perry memorial sets on the main stage at US festivals like The Marley Brother’s sold out 4/20 Kayafest at Red Rocks and Cali Vibes. With Scratch, Subatomic toured for over a decade across the US and beyond including sets at Coachella, France’s Telérama Dub Fest, Berlin’s Loop fest, Dubai’s SoleDXB, Hungary’s OzoraFest to name a few.
