This 11 track album from the year 1993 has it all: Bible Readings, Middle Eastern melodies, and of course the massive drum and basslines we're used to hear from Ariwa Studio's.

Mad Professor rides a number of riddims, gives it different treatments, but all of them contain a healthy combination of programmed and played material.

Towards the end of the 1980's, early 1990's the digital machines had taken strong roots in the studio's on Jamaica and the UK. Dancehall, Ragga, even though DUB was more at the background in the Jamaican Studio's, the technology created new sounds.

We hear some of these sounds in The Lost Scrolls Of Moses. The bass, clearly inspired by the Sleng Teng sound and even details like a snapping finger every now and then give us a Dancehall vibe.

However, the music is unmistakably the UK Roots we're known to receive in our ears almost every time we listen to a Mad Professor production. That sound stands for a quality in itself, which makes you want to collect all of Neil Fraser's albums.
