2LP, D-Side etched
Not many people remember Lee Scratch Perry's foray into electronic music on the 1997 CD-only release "Technomajikal". It's a distinct diversion for the dub master from his more roots-minded experimentation, but still loaded with the same irreverent mischief and sonic acrobatics you'd expect from the Black Ark pioneer. Adeen have picked up on the quality elements hidden away in the album and given them a fresh airing, with some choice remixes to boot. Camille delivers a plentiful spread of versions, from the hypnotic incantations of her take on "Maxi Merlin" to the Latin heat of her version of "LSD UnitCorn". DJ Boring gets a little more technical on his remix of "Technologically", chopping up the samples and strapping them to a thumping house beat. It's as wild and mixed an end result as is fitting for a maverick like Lee Scratch Perry, the man promising to ride on his "unitcorn".
