Mad Skills To Pay The Bills

I’m going through a bit of a dub phase at the moment. It’s not something I buy a lot of, mainly because I don’t know a huge amount about it. However, every now and again I hear a couple of tracks by a producer that just blows me away and then have to go on a dig for their records. At the moment it’s Mad Professor and some of his sonic experiments gleamed from a vast back catalogue.

BTW the guy built a recording studio in the front room of his house at the beginning of his career. He got his priorities spot on. What more do you need to know.

Below are five that I think show how varied and talented the man is on a mixing desk.


Really needs heard on a proper system to do the sonics justice.


Never judge a book by it’s cover. Heavy.

Just a beautiful mix of vocal and production. Illustrates Mad Professor’s versatility.

Massive Attack wouldn’t just pass over an album to anybody. The Professor certainly brings it.
