Mad Professor with DJ Kid Hops

Nectar Fremont (Seattle)
This is an in-person event
Mad Professor's masterpiece during the '80s is African Connection, and what distinguished it (and much of what Mad Professor completed at the time) from Jamaican forms of dub was its frank futurism. Though science fiction played a role in Jamaican recordings like Scientist's Scientist Encounters Pac-Man (the greatest dub album), African Connection was considerably spacier, tripper, and more technological. Jamaican dub masters used the genre as a time machine, a way to return to the lost African kingdoms; Mad Professor's UK versions always looked forward to an Afro-techno utopia. Mad Professor is also known for transforming, in 1995, Massive Attack's mediocre Protection into a dub classic, No Protection. He also had several collaborations with the late dubmaster Lee "Scratch" Perry. In short, he is a walking, breathing, dubbing legend. by Charles Mudede
