When it comes to sonic wizardy, there’s probably no man greater than Lee Scratch Perry, the Jamaican dub pioneer.

A bona fide living legend.

Remarkably, he’s still making records aged 83, and his latest one ‘Rainford’ (On-U Sound Records!) features the Stylophone.

The musician Gaudi, who plays in the band on the album recording said on Facebook, “Feeling honoured to be on this gem produced by Adrian Sherwood, with my piano playing, theremin, moog synthsizers, melodica and stylophone.”

Gaudi has been playing for over 30 years, in over 250 productions in all kinds of genre, from punk to experimental electronica, but he’s most at home in spacious, dubby soundscapes, so no wonder he likes a bit of Stylophone.

And we might be biased, but we think the stylophone and Mr Perry are a perfect match.

Here’s a the first single from the album, Let It Rain.
