The question is often asked, just how sane is The Mad Professor? Judging by the contents of his character and by the results of his recordings, and the variety of the artistes who has passed through Ariwa studios then he is certainly one of the sanest producers around.

Neil Fraser began his musical career on the technical side of things as a service engineer for mixing desks and amplifiers. That skill and a good ear for "on key" music became his asset when he began building a 4 track studio at his home in Thornton Heath. At school Neil was christened Mad Professor by friends who were amazed by the experiments he was carrying out.

By the turn of the Eighties, Mad Professor launched the Ariwa label and released "Come back Again" by Sgt. Pepper, then came "Young Girl" by Family Love, "Love Power/Love On A Two Way Street" by Divinia Stone, "True True Loving" by Aquizim. Mad Professor - Ariwa Dubshow.

At the close of 2018, Mad Professor will have been in the music business for almost 40 years. A globe-trotting bona-fide bonkers reggae genius with an insanely wide-ranging body of work, he is now mentioned in the same breath his own musical mentors (Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby, Joe Gibbs et. al).

A true original, Mad Professors remix & production credits range from Massive Attack to The Orb, from Jamiroquai to Janes Addiction to Lorde, to his own sublime in-house Ariwa label; put simply, he is an audio wizard of maximum sonic penetration, encompassing Roots, Dub, Reggae, Soul, D&B, Trip-Hop, Dubstep and Jungle, & right back again!

An electrical engineer by trade, MP`s stellar career is marked by a desire always to develop the music, to push back the barriers that the technology - and the industry - have often presented. He has produced and engineered LPs that made proper headway in the mainstream pop charts - and also tracks which few had any idea what he was on about - but now are globally rare & valuable collectors gems, musical touchstones, if you will

Catch the Mad Professor with his legendary Live Studio Dubshow at Galatos Saturday Nov 10th from 9pm.

Huge local support from Stinky Jim, Dubhead, Jafia Mafia DJs. Limited early tickets.
