LEE 'SCRATCH' PERRY: HEAVY RAIN
Whether praising ackee and saltfish or reimagining his own "starship", Perry's wild remix of June 2019's Rainford is a tonne heavier and a helium balloon lighter. The monster-shuffling Makumba Rock is even cheekier here, reworked with Brian Eno as (of course) Here Come The Warm Dreads. The lilting trombone of Vin 'The Wailers' Gordon provides ballast to the spiralling dub, which Sherwood pushes to the edge. Glorious from start to finish and re-start to finish as your play button develops its own echo.
