Lucy Duran introduces World Routes in concert at the Brighton Festival 2011, featuring dub reggae pioneers Lee 'Scratch' Perry and Max Romeo, together with UK producer Adrian Sherwood.

Veteran, Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Lee 'Scratch' Perry has become a legend of Jamaican reggae, and is acclaimed as a pioneer of dub. He is now well into his 70s, but with no thoughts of retiring - he has just completed a new album 'Rise Again'. Here he teams up with Max Romeo, whose most successful album, 'War in a Babylon', Perry produced in 1976. Adrian Sherwood has worked as producer with a wide range of successful artists, but he is best known for his work with dub music - he has worked regularly with Lee Perry since the 1980s.
