11 track album from the year 1993 has it
all: Bible Readings, Middle Eastern
melodies, and of course the massive drum and
basslines we're used to hear from Ariwa
Mad Professor rides a number of riddims,
gives it different treatments, but all of
them contain a healthy combination of
programmed and played material.
Towards the end of the 1980's, early 1990's
the digital machines had taken strong roots
in the studio's on Jamaica and the UK.
Dancehall, Ragga, even though DUB was more
at the background in the Jamaican Studio's,
the technology created new sounds.
We hear some of these sounds in The Lost
Scrolls Of Moses. The bass, clearly inspired
by the Sleng Teng sound and even details
like a snapping finger every now and then
give us a Dancehall vibe.
However, the music is unmistakably the UK
Roots we're known to receive in our ears
almost every time we listen to a Mad
Professor production. That sound stands for
a quality in itself, which makes you want to
collect all of Neil Fraser's albums.
