The Art of DUB has been the inspiration for a very large part of contemporary digital music, from Techno to Hip Hop.

In "No Protection", the Mad Professor provides undeniable evidence of this fact in the form of what really is a "missing link" between Reggae and a form of contemporary digital music called "Trip Hop".

The art of DUB and the rhythm of Reggae are connected, very much so. But DUB and Reggae are not two words for the same music.

If only for that reason, it would be interesting to check out "no Protection". It's a DUB remix by the Mad Professor of the music by Massive Attack. This duo used Horace Andy in their works as well, as they provided an excellent Dance version of Horace Andy's classic "Spying Glass". A DUB can be found on this album too.

This is DUB without (necessarily) being Reggae. A wide variety of different rhythms serve as foundations for what are undeniable heavyweight DUB versions. The Mad Professor shows, how the technique and Art of DUB can be used on more forms of music than Reggae alone.

Ergo: No Protection is an album for the DUB Freak, but not necessarily for the Reggae fan. For those who want to know just what influence DUB has on contemporary music, though, the album is an absolute recommendation.
