After the introduction by Macka B, the 8th chapter in the DUB ME CRAZY series opens up with a very hard hitting steppers riddim.
The tone is set for yet another collection of DUB tracks by one of the masters in the discipline and his mysterious set of effect devices.
Mad Professor is obviously one of the masters. It's not just, that he has a superb sound, it's also that he knows how to literally transform that sound by taking instruments and adding effects. It sounds so easy, but in fact it's not.
DUB engineers play with the dimension called time. Echo's, for example, have their own rhythm and that little piece of knowledge theoretically enables the man behind the mixing board to change the rhythm of a tune.
It needs to be said: for those who are interested in the production of DUB, each and every DUB album by the Mad Professor simply is a Master Class in the Art and that is a thing you definitely feel if you are just interested in enjoying the music.
Too technical? It doesn't matter. After all, the result is what counts.
In this case, the result is a collection of 12 riddims, in various speeds and styles, mixed in a wide variety of styles. Sometimes the mix goes subtle, only to be "disturbed" by a cutting razor style effect. In other instances filters are applied where no engineer dares to apply them.
This Master Class in DUB is definitely not for producer's ears only, it's an experience that will make the heart and soul of every true lover of DUB rejoice 12 more times.
