A pivotal figure of the second revolutionary wave in dub music, Neil Fraser aka Mad Professor began his musical career on the technical side of things as a service engineer for mixing desks and amplifiers. It was this skill and a good ear for "on key" music that led to the creation of Ariwa Sounds - the legendary recording studio based in South East London, which recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary.

As an engineer and producer, he has worked with an incredible array of artists, including Lee “Scratch” Perry, Grace Jones, Massive Attack, Sade and Sly and Robbie.

Not only a genius in the studio, Mad Professor is very much in demand as a live performer, showcasing his unique style of dub mixing to fans all around the world.
