Daddy of Dub Brings His Art to the Festival

Daddy of Dub Brings His Art to the Festival

Who: The Mad Professor
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
Author: Jade Lazerevic
When: Sunday September 30, 2001

IF James Brown is the godfather of soul and Michael Jackson is the king of pop then the Daddy of Dub must be the Mad Professor. The legendary dub artist is making the trip to Newcastle to participate in the This Is Not Art Festival. The UK musical genius has worked with reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry and the Beastie Boys but he is most recently known for his work with trip hop group Massive Attack. Since the humble beginnings of dub in Jamaica, it has spread into the massive club scenes of both Europe and America.

The Mad Professor entered the world of dub back in 1980 and in 20 years he has become one of the premier wizards of the genre.

He is easily one of the most prolific creators of dub and has released more than 100 albums and produced countless remixes.

Catch the Professor when he performs at The Cambridge Hotel on Sunday for the Internationals Gig from 10pm to 5am.

The show features acts from the US, New Zealand, the UK, Belgium, Taiwan and Australia.

Entry is $25 or available with the weekend pass.
