Our very special guest this month is The 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 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.
Coming along with their hand made analogue sound system is Real Roots. Firmly established as one of the leading Roots Reggae/Dub outfits on the London circuit. Hosting and performing at regular sell-out events for over 5 years. I-Mandal will be on the mic for this night!
Sattamann & Paulo and their Real Roots selectors/crew have been performing for over 5 years to crowds in bars, clubs & festivals across the capital & throughout the UK and beyond.
2016 saw the launch of the Real Roots Sound System. A traditional, pre-amp run analogue sound system. Sattamann & Paulo as a duo select as “Real Roots/Real Roots Sound System” playing strictly vinyl, strictly roots often accompanied by top vocalists giving a sound system style performance, sirens and all!
Expect energetic performances with Real Roots selectors playing the best of classic roots rock reggae, ska, roots & culture, dubwise, steppers and more.
This is going to be a very special night.
