avatar for Mad Professor

Mad Professor

Born in 1955, Mad Professor has been at the forefront of dub’s Joshua generation that followed pioneers Lee “Scratch” Perry and King Tubby. As a boy, Neil Joseph Stephen Fraser became known as Mad Professor due to his fascination with electronics. He emigrated from his native Guyana to London at age 13, and in the 70s recorded lovers rock artists such as fellow Guyanese Deborahe Glasgow. In the 1980s, Mad Professor released the classic Dub Me Crazy series, creating a new space for dub as roots reggae gave way to dancehall. He also produced work for other artists, like Macka B’s similarly progressive LP Sign of the Times. In the 90s, he began releasing the more rootsy Black Liberation Dub series, while crafting dub versions of the likes of Massive Attack and Depeche Mode. Mad Professor proves that Lee Perry’s Black Ark still bears fruit, dub by dub.
