Mad Professor – 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 also 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. Professor bring the finest singers to accompany his set in the guise of Sister Aisha & Sister Audrey.
Dub Pistols Sound System – The Dub Pistols- Soundsystem set delivered to your ears and feet from the legend himself, frontman of The Dub Pistols, Barry Ashworth! a key influence in the dance scene since way back when promoting events back in the early 90s both at home and in Ibiza.
By the mid-90s Barry was DJing and had started the act that he remains the lynchpin of to this day – the infamous Dub Pistols. The name captures the essence of Barry and the band’s music – punk ethics with a dub mentality.
