Mad Professor presents Beyond the Realms of Dub - Dub me Jazzy
The legendary dub pioneer mixing up a full live band as he goes back to the beginning of the story with new and exclusive arrangements of his first two albums - 'Dub Me Crazy' and 'Beyond The Realms Of Dub'.
In his long and accomplished career, this globally acclaimed dub talent has amassed a fine discography that includes many cult albums. He has worked with the likes of Johnny Clarke and Mikey Dread, Reggae Regular and Ruts DC, all of whom are legends in their own right.
But it was back in the beginning, back in the '80s when Mad Professor built his first mixing desk and he soon began working with the Ariwa Studio and label on a 12 part album series Dub Me Crazy. With new instalments coming each year, they helped establish the Londoner as a real master of the mix, of echo and reverb, of spacious rhythms and dub attitude.
His crazy use of sound effects and clarity of mixing won him many fans and plaudits, and remixes of acts like The Orb, Beats International, Sade and 400 Blows all followed. And of course so did live shows, which took the Mad Professor to high profile gigs all over North America, Europe, Japan and many places in between. High profile remix work on Massive Attack’s seminal Protection album helped elevate him yet further, and the new century brought with it many more big releases for his Ariwa label, which eventually went on to distribute more than 200 releases in all. Still in demand for shows and studio work, Mad Professor plays cult events like Unsound and Outlook Festival in Croatia and works with the likes of Lee Scratch Perry, U Roy, BigYouth and many more on his ever excellent label.
