Dubokaj — Cover Me

Dubokaj & Lee „Scratch“ Perry

Cover Me finds the dub techno riddim master Dubokaj at work, effortlessly pulling out beats, synths and saxophone stabs into a fluid composition of Alpine dub. The song has its roots in the Trimoto Calim tune, from the Alpine Dub LP Dubokaj released in 2016.

For the song, Lee “Scratch” Perry is in a happy singing mood with a melodic delivery very different from his usual surreal dub poetry. The images he invokes though are a collage of street symbols, blue covers, red wine stealers, killers with firing guns, and the situation of ongoing wars in the world. Was Lee $cratch Perry an artist with a political message until the end?

From Police and Thieves, Ruff Ruff Street to Zion’s Blood, it very much seems so, and Dubokaj offers the perfect soundtrack to his magical supernatural madness and message!

„Cover Me was the highlight, the peak of the session at the Secret Laboratory. Both, me and Lee Scratch Perry, were very happy after we recorded it and we wanted to listen to it again and again.”  Dubokaj
