For twenty five years Scratch Famous a.k.a Jeremy Freeman and his Deadly Dragon Sound System have been keeping the roots of reggae music alive as DJs, retailers, promoters and noted vinyl collectors. Deadly Dragon is a foundation sound, playing the music of Jamaica on original, vinyl records spanning from the ska music of the early 1960s all the way up to new songs being released in Kingston, Europe, Japan and anywhere else that great reggae is being made.

Over the past 25 years Deadly Dragon has brought their unique vibe and perspective to worldwide audiences through extensive touring, their legendary record shop, reissue label and monthly podcast series. In that time Deadly Dragon played alongside such artists and sound systems as Sister Nancy, Johnny Osbourne, Screechy Dan, Shinehead, Tony Tuff, Yami Bolo, Mighty Crown, Down Beat The Ruler, Ranking Joe, Cornell Campbell, Wayne Smith, Supersonic, Shabba Ranks, Stone Love, Carlton Livingstone, Shabba Ranks, and more. In 2017, Scratch Famous re-located to Tokyo, Japan where he continues to bring Deadly Dragon’s message of musical unity to the world.
