A scientist of sound, British dub producer Mad Professor is a seven-time Best Reggae Artist who was instrumental in transitioning dub music into the digital age. Cutting his teeth building mixing desks and sound effect units in the 70’s, he opened his own recording studio in 1979, attracting artists and musicians like Sister Audrey, Mikey Dread, Ruts DC, Plato Banton, and Desmond Decker, to name a few. After producing many hit songs in the 80’s, his mixing skills were in demand by the likes of The KLF, The Orb, and Jamiroquai. With over 300 titles on his iconic label Ariwa, Mad Professor’s remixes of Massive Attack’s Mezzanine, which were originally intended for its 1998 release, just surfaced on the band’s 25-year anniversary reissue.
Joining Mad Professor as MC is one of Britain’s finest reggae artists Sandra Cross. Since her first release in 1979, and over the following decades, Cross has consistently topped the charts and continues to own her global superstar status.
Toronto-based reggae artist and producer Dubmatix is hailed as one of the most inventive dub reggae producers in Canada. The seven-time Juno Award winner is a recording machine, producing more than 500 releases since his start in 2004, including his rendition of “Is This Love” crowned by Billboard Magazine as the #1 Bob Marley remix of all time. This mixmaster’s relentless, multi-instrumental creativity has garnered a massive following on the international stage and promises to “turn up the heat for maximum dance floor enjoyment!”
