another masterpiece by the hands of the Mad
Professor, straight out of the Asylum of
Dub. This album contains some of the ruffest
riddims from Mad Professor's ARIWA Studio's.
Most of the ten killers are kicking DUBS
from Michael Prophet's album Rootsman, which
is ofcourse also an Ariwa release. Ofcourse?
Yes. Mad Professor mixes and produces
music which is recorded in his own studio
and he also releases the material. A common,
but often misunderstood aspect of Reggae
Culture. So that's why you'll find Michael
Prophet on tracks attributed to Mad
Professor. Or vice versa, in the case of
Michael Prophet's Rootsman. Mad Professor
definitely goes deeper where he stopped on
that album: complicated echo's, more
filters, more this and more that. When you
own Rootsman, you must also have this one.
And just like "Rootsman", this
album has a conscious theme. Many people
complain that Dub can not have a message,
which is nonsense if you just realize how
much a title can say, a few words here and
there can have more impact than a lyrical
stream. Afrocentricic Dub has all this, too.
So much to say about this album, even
before I even mentioned the magnificent
Dubbing performed by Mad Professor. There is
not a single part on this album in which
there is not something going on. Sometimes
subtle, sometimes provokingly loud. Enough
to keep you playing this album again and
again and again.
