Forest Swords wins GIT Award 2014

April 13, 2014

Forest Swords has won the coveted GIT Award for 2014. 

Unavailable to attend the concert due to a sold out show in Brighton, the Liverpool producer asked seminal dub artist Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to provide a video for broadcast at the event. A screenshot of Lee’s blessing in the video is above.

Forest Swords is quoted as saying: “I was lucky enough for the legendary Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to remix of a track of mine earlier in the year. I was uncomfortable with the idea of doing my own acceptance video for this award, so I asked the master himself to do it for me. I know he also feels a love for Liverpool. Thank you so much.”
