Mad Professor is one of the best known Dub
Mixers from the United Kingdom. On his own
Ariwa Label he has released numerous weird
dub mixes. He has mixed for Massive Attack,
and numerous UK based reggae artists.
Using digital equipment, his sound
differs from that of the older Jamaican
Roots Dub as we know it from King Tubby and
more. Mad Professor can be considered as the
link between Jamaican dub producers and the
newer generation UK Dubcreators (Alpha and
Omega, Jah Warrior, Mixman etc).
On Black Liberation Dub, he uses an
interesting mix of old and new skool Dub
techniques. You hear the phaser as well as
the newer sound effects as we can find them
in samplers and so on. From this technical
point of view, I think this album is
interesting to study. If you like a
combination of the old and the new, this
album is for you also. It has computer
drums, but also real musicians as
12 Very psychedelic tracks mixed in such
a way, only the Mad Professor can do this.
