The reggae and dub pioneer Lee “Scratch” Perry is, by any metric, one of the greatest producers of popular music who has ever lived. On his latest track, though, Perry has joined forces with another producer: Clams Casino, who has taken Perry’s sense of astral drift and brought it into a Tumblr-rap context. The new Clams-produced “Jesus Is A Soul Man” is typical of late-period Perry: Some echoing blunted-into-infinity chatter over a simpatico backing track. BitTorrent is giving it away as part of a download bundle that also includes a trailer for the new Perry documentary The Upsetter. Check it out below.
