Lee Scratch Perry will be performing a ‘live jam’ tomorrow night live and direct from the Exil club in Zurich and you can catch it live here on Electronic Beats. Dub pioneer Perry has been a Swiss native for much of the last two decades, and apparently a weekly dancehall night which is held at the Exil club is his home away from home. What he has in store for tomorrow is anyone’s guess however – the 75 year old is one of reggae music’s last great mavericks
All you have to do to watch the performance – which takes place at 22.00 ( GMT +1 ) on Tuesday 12th July – is log on to Electronic Beats and watch the embedded player which you can find below. The concert is free to access.
Switzerland seems to be having all the fun at the moment. First they announce the Electron festival taking place in Geneva, now they tease us even more with this fantastic boutique festival called m4music taking place in the Swiss cities Schiffbau and Zürich.
The SXSW styled festival will take place in just over a week and will feature names like Belgium electro-poppers Goose, Dubstep wizz’s Darkstar, The Streets, Friendly Fires and finally Everything Everything whose Sunday Girl remix of their tune ‘Photoshop Handsome’ track I feel is one of the best remixes of the year so far.
Check it out below:
Other artists included on the bill are Joker, Manchester’s fantastic apocalyptic rockers Wu Lyf and many more.
One of the coolest things about the three-day festival is that they are putting on a demo-tape clinic, where you can submit your demo in any genre and be assessed by the best. Other things taking place at the festival include conferences & discussions.
If we were you I’d head over to Switzerland quick smart before it’s completely sold out.
As always festivals like put out their own cinematic trailers, so here is m4music’s:
