The question is often asked, just how sane is The Mad Professor? Judging by the contents of his character and by the results of his recordings, and the variety of the artistes who has passed through his Ariwa studios then he is certainly one of the sanest producers around. The Mad Professor's acute sense of the divine and delicate has helped him make considerable contributions in England to dub, roots reggae, and lovers rock. He is best known for his dub albums, which include 12 installments of the Dub Me Crazy series and 5 albums under the Black Liberation Dub banner.

Working from his own studios, Mad Professor has overseen more than two hundred albums including recordings by Jah Shaka, Pato Banton, Johnny Clarke, Lee Perry and Horace Andy. As impressively he has created ground-breaking remixes for Massive Attack, The Orb, Janiroquai, and Sade. Everyday, the Mad Professor gets calls from all over the world from groups of all genres (the Beastie Boys for one) to help produce their work. As well as being a prolific and extremely influential producer Mad Professor has successfully toured the world over.

As a live artist, his performances are legendary, as his last Vancouver appearance at a sold out Richards on Richards attested. Do not miss this dub reggae legend live in the mix with very special guest Dr. Israel January 26th at the Commodore Ballroom
