 Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 22 – Super Cat takes Center Stage

Super Cat is a deejay who achieved widespread popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s dancehall movement. His nickname, "Wild Apache", was given to him by his mentor Early B. He is the elder brother of reggae artist Junior Cat and is considered one of the greatest deejays within the Jamaican dance-hall scene to date.  This is not a commercial mix so if youre looking for the collaborations with Kriss Kross, Biggie Smalls, and 112 recorded after Cat was signed to Columbia Records, you are in the wrong place.  This mix goes back to the roots in the Cockburn Pen / Seaview Gardens section of Kingston and tours through recordings produced by Steely & Clevie, King Jammy's, and his own Wild Apache Productions label.    About an hour in length, here is the #ReggaeLover tribute to Super Cat, a major figure in the positive-consciousness dancehall movement.

Kahlil Wonda and Reggae Lover present Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry

Lee 'Scratch' PerryWelcome to Episode 20 of the Reggae Lover Podcast, my first “dubwise” edition. This mix was specially requested by Ras Jamal in Savannah, Georgia and features the musical productions and performances of Lee “Scratch” Perry exclusively.  

One of the pioneers in the development of dub music and remixing in addition to numerous other innovations in production, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry truly paved the way for the EDM, Hip-Hop, and Reggae movements of today.  Learn more about Perry’s amazing career.  

Show Notes.

We start off in the 60 – 70 BPM range with The Upsetters‘ Curly Dub and move into a couple different dub versions of Satisfy My Soul featuring Bob Marley and The Wailers.  The Upsetters’ Super Ape is up next, leading into a “Vibrate On” medley.  Augustus Pablo, Max Romeo, Hugo Blackwood and Dr. Alimantado are featured on the riddim alongside Perry and The Upsetters.  A cool blend transitions from there into Bob Marley dub once again with “Live,” a Lively Up Yourself dub version and then a Screw Face dub version entitled “Face Man.”

Junior Murvin can then be heard singing “Roots Train,” followed by his massive hit tune “Police And Thieves.”  I selected 3 tracks from Perry’s “Arkology” box set on the same riddim.  The voices of Glen DaCosta and Jah Lion are featured in this set along with some wicked Saxophone and the masterful instrumentation of Lee Perry dubbing out on the board.

For the next few tracks I go into the Jungle Dub album, my favorite album of Perry’s work.  The very heavy-weight Super Ape album, Ras Jamal’s highest rated Scratch Perry album is also a focal point of this mix.  Other noteable selections served up are “Bad Walking” with Tommy McCook and “I Chase The Devil/Croaking Lizard” with Max Romeo and Prince Jazzbo.

Please email me (reggaeloverpodcast@gmail.com) if you want the full tracklist. My wish is that listeners will hear this mix and go looking for Lee Perry’s music to purchase.  Dub music should be a part of every reggae lover’s music collection.
