The Dubroom reviews a lot of different material, from musical to educational to beneficial and more. We've got music, but also material for artists and producers as well as researchers of more conscious material. As always, when the Dubroom reviews something, this means that this website considers the material at least fair. So don't expect any negative reviews. When it's here, we recommend it. Period.

MAD PROFESSOR LIVE @ GLAD FESTIVAL, 2006
DUBROOM VIDEO REVIEW
Most people, when thinking about live Reggae or even live Dub, would visualize a band on stage performing a concert. And fair enough, this is often the case.

But not necessarily, as Mad Professor proofs in this great video report from his performance on the UK based Glad Festival in 2006. And rather than a band, he takes his Ariwa studio on stage! Together with Karl Melody and Roots Dawta Aisha, he gives the public some heavyweight DUB and Consciousness as his hands move over the controls like a mad professor.

Almost thirty minutes of pure niceness for the ear, and for the eye. This concert has been recorded by students from the Southampton Institute for Media, who graciously uploaded the material to the Internet so that we could have an almost as good of a time as they obviously did recording this great performance. They used several camera's, we get many close-up's of the mixing board and the several vocalists as well as other interesting shots and angles. 

Part one starts with Karl Melody, introducing himself and his partner Joe Ariwa with a heavy London accent and suggesting to the public that they too would introduce themselves to their neighbor. Then the music starts and Karl Melody performs some English toast, Ariwa style, while Joe Ariwa mixes along. Right after that, the Mad Professor enters stage and starts to mix a riddim he did with (a recorded) Yabby You, in Discomix style. 

The second part opens up with Mad Professor introducing singer Aisha, who has recorded several albums for Ariwa. She starts singing "Give it to the Creator", with the well-known vocal hook used by ambient producer "the Orb". What follows is a vocal duet, wherein Aisha and a recorded U Roy voice over some heavy duty mixing by the Mad Professor.

In the third and -unfortunately- last part, the music goes deeper while Aisha's goes wider up an down, showing what an incredibly good singer she is. Singing about Jah protection against the duppies and other evil forces, with shots of the audience that feels the vibe increasingly. The sound drops out for a second, by the way. And there's a nasty scratch, too.
