Mad Professor's more than excellent DUB series which started in the 1980's definitely opened up the Art of DUB to a wider audience while also putting himself among the small group of top DUB engineers.

This is the original album that started it all: Dub Me Crazy Part One. Plus two bonus tracks, that is.

Mad Professor, it can not be said enough, is one of the most creative and innovative DUB engineers, and he is so for decades in a row. His Ariwa Studio may have released a lot of crucial vocal singles and albums, but unlike many Jamaican Studio's in the 1980's, Ariwa never lost interest in DUB.

The DUB Me Crazy series definitely set the standard for DUB through-out the 1980's. It started in 1982 with this release. There are some serious DUB mixes on the album, which originally just contained 10 tracks due to the limitations on vinyl. This release has two bonus tracks, for some extra enjoyment. DUB Enjoyment to the max.

Mad Professor's superb DUB transformation of the excellent vocal parts which pop in throughout the entire album will take you into another Sound Dimension. The crucial work by the drummer and bass player are often the only points of reference as each and every effect device is utilized to the max.

The more you listen, the more you hear, the album will catch you and then grow on you: some might call it "crazy"...
