Professor's more than excellent DUB series
which started in the 1980's definitely
opened up the Art of DUB to a wider audience
while also putting himself among the small
group of top DUB engineers.
This is the original album that started
it all: Dub Me Crazy Part One. Plus two
bonus tracks, that is.
Mad Professor, it can not be said enough, is
one of the most creative and innovative DUB
engineers, and he is so for decades in a
row. His Ariwa Studio may have released a
lot of crucial vocal singles and albums, but
unlike many Jamaican Studio's in the 1980's,
Ariwa never lost interest in DUB.
The DUB Me Crazy series definitely set
the standard for DUB through-out the 1980's.
It started in 1982 with this release. There
are some serious DUB mixes on the album,
which originally just contained 10 tracks

release has two bonus tracks, for some extra
enjoyment. DUB Enjoyment to the max.
Mad Professor's superb DUB transformation
of the excellent vocal parts which pop in
throughout the entire album will take you
into another Sound Dimension. The crucial
work by the drummer and bass player are
often the only points of reference as each
and every effect device is utilized to the
The more you listen, the more you hear,
the album will catch you and then grow on
you: some might call it "crazy"...
