BOOKING IN THE UK & EUROPE // APRIL 2019 ONWARDS
It gives us great pleasure to announce that Mad Professor and Scientist, two of dub’s greatest practitioners, will be joining forces for a series of very special live shows.
As pioneering sound engineers & producers, both Mad Professor and Scientist have been pushing the boundaries of convention for over 40 years with their unique approach to recording & mixing. It is this approach to music which has been pivotal in the evolution of dub and wider electronic music.
Internationally renowned and highly respected, there has been a huge demand for these two legends to perform together again (it’s been over a decade).
With the above in mind, we’re currently taking bookings for festivals and club shows throughout the UK and Europe.
