Global Beats presents: Mad Professor and Sister Aisha + Dende Sound
Tickets with NO BOOKING FEES availble: HERE
A disciple of Lee “Scratch” Perry, Mad Professor was one of the leading producers in dub reggae’s second generation. His Dub Me Crazy albums helped dub make the transition into the digital age, when electronic productions started to take over mainstream reggae in the ’80s. His space-age tracks not only made use of new digital technology, but often expanded dub’s sonic blueprint, adding more elements and layers of sound than his forebears typically did. In the mid-’90s, he returned to the basics, debuting a more retro-sounding style on the Black Liberation Dub series. Additionally, he ran his own studio and label, Ariwa, which was home to a stable of vocalists (with an emphasis on lovers rock and conscious roots reggae) and some of the finest British reggae productions of the era. As his reputation grew, he became a remixer of choice for adventurous rock and techno acts, most notably revamping Massive Attack’s entire second album under the new title No Protection.
Dende Sound is a lovingly crafted, custom-built rig inspired by a long tradition of Jamaican Sound System Culture.
Togetherwith resident selectors Edi Yoyo, Artemis Roots and Bambaman, they’ve been putting on regular heavyweight dances hosting visiting crews from across the country representing the best in Reggae and Dub.
