Re-united with producer Daniel Boyle, the album was created over 2017 & '18 and sees a continuation of the raw, analogue sound the pair had cultivated over previous releases.
Using strictly vintage analogue equipment, they employed Neuman valve and RCA Ribbon microphones, and RAK’s early model vintage API desk to record. The ‘sound’ for the album was sculpted in these sessions - vintage, but punchy, which was then blended with Lee’s choice of super rare and custom analogue effects. Ursa Major Space Station and Stargate delays and reverbs, old choruses, plate and spring reverbs and tape delays were used to create a tight vintage feel but retaining the rawness of the 'Low Fi' roots sound Lee was (always) aiming for.
With the music coming together, the vocal sessions were held in Abbey Road studio 3, again using vintage RCA ribbon mics, over driving their EMI TG console and Fairchild compressors to create a pleasantly distorted lo-fi vocal sound.
Lee and Daniel then returned to Daniels Rolling Lion Studio to mix and dub the album live, on the mixing console - which resulted in some very authentic sounding, vintage-Perry-era dubs. A triumph for fans of that original Black Ark sound and a ridiculously strong addition to Perry's ongoing discography.
