084 / Producers Series #7 / Mad Professor

Neil Fraser, a.k.a The Mad Professor is one of the finest dub producers in the game. Nicknamed Mad Professor as a boy due to his fascination with electronics, he was originally born in Guyana and emigrated to London aged 13. His mix of synths and dub has created his particular take on the sound. If you didn’t hear the Mad Professor’s podcasts for Fabric take a listen (number 24 and 25 here). He gently talks you through the link between soul and dub in the first one and then brings it all up to date with his work with Dennis Bovell in the second. So, here Dr Rob steps up to the plate to pull out his favourite Mad Professor moments. Dubwise.
