the 1980's, Mad Professor set the High
Standards for DUB with his DUB ME CRAZY
series which started in 1982.
In times when the Jamaican studio's lost
their interest and turned to Dancehall,
Ariwa Sound kept on releasing one massive
document of DUB after the other. This is the
7th chapter, catching up with the Mad
Professor in 1987.
Mad Professor's first release in the DUB ME
CRAZY series already sounded pretty digital.
The year was 1982. Now, we're 5 years along
the road and the Sound Sampler arrived in
the Ariwa Studio's. A thing we'll really
know after listening to the adventures of
the DUB Sampler.
We hear a fatter sound, and as more and
more digital technologies arrive in Mad
Professor's studio, we hear a combination of
programmed and played material joining
perfectly together in what the connoisseur
definitely recognizes as the Ariwa Sound.
Fragments of vocals drop in and out as
one Roots Reggae Riddim after the other
comes into our ear and blesses us once again
with what can only be described as another
addition to the collection of every
self-respecting collector of the better DUB.
