MAD PROFESSOR LIVE – THE ARIWA DUB SHOW + LLOYD COXSONE
Global Beats are very happy to announce that a true modern dub mixing legend is coming to Brighton.
Mad Professor is considered one of the leading producers of dub music’s second generation – instrumental in transitioning dub into the digital age. He’s collaborated with reggae artists such as Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sly and Robbie, Pato Banton, Jah Shaka and Horace Andy, as well as artists outside the realm of traditional reggae and dub, such as Sade, Massive Attack and The Orb.
Support comes from:
Lloyd Coxsone playing a strictly vinyl selection including some of his renowned Dubplates!!!
The legendary UK soundman & record producer, LLOYD COXSONE, began his career in the sixties, soon after arriving from Jamaica. He was one of the first soundmen to play at West End clubs like Tiles and the Roaring Twenties, where a generation of British pop stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John first heard the music of Jamaica. Coxsone then dominated the seventies, when Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were among his closest allies, as heard on unforgettable dub-plates from that era. Lloyd is an elder statesman with more than fifty years’ history behind him, but he knows there’s still a place in the music for those who are young at heart and willing to embrace change. After several ill-fated reunions with past members Lloydie now has a new crew working alongside him, and who can help him replenish his legacy for reggae audiences of today.
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN OUR MAIN SPACE – KOMEDIA DOWNSTAIRS
